Tigers set to hijack Sale Sharks deal

Post by fortysix » Sun Dec 30, 2018 11:57 am

Bristol Post today claiming Leicester have already signed Dan and are now poised to land both Robert and Jean-Luc...
True or false. Great if its actually correct !

There is nothing on Sale Sharks website to say they have signed any of these players. :smt023

Rumours are we have already signed Dan Du Preez. Now Sale Sharks have stayed they wanted to keep Robert for next season, but nothing has been agreed.

Wouldn’t be surprised to see Robert staying at Sale and us signing Jean-Luc and Dan for the pack.

Fingers crossed, if we get Dan and Jean Luc, then Robert may be tempted to join his brothers.

We have apparently signed Dan and are favourites to sign Jean Luc and Robert.

Sale have a couple of them on loan for 3 months at the moment. I presume the person that has said that Sale have signed all 3 has got confused.

Don't need Robert as much as the other two. Certainly don't need to be in a bidding war with Sale over him. He'd be a bonus. The twins would be much more integral signings.

Robert would still be a very good signing though. He can play 10, 12 and 15.

The twins would be a massive boost to the pack and two players you could build the front 8 around. Hope the recruitment team nail these two down.

The last 4 headlines have been Tigers rumours.
Gustard to Tigers
Ellis in talks with Tigers
Blake to Tigers
Du Preez tribe to Tigers.

I wonder if they are finding they sell more copies with us?

With Diamond in charge, and with his reported behaviour, would you play for Sale knowing there were alternatives?

You're usually on the money RB - is that a not so subtle hint that they have got it wrong?

Would you move to Leicester, given the current state of play and Challenge Cup rugby a real possibility ?
