But we are not talking about the ordinary men on the street unless you fancy having them at 10.

So your way of ensuring we win more is to not pau our star players more because being a professional Rugby player pays more than the average job in the street?

The bloke is by far our best player in the 2018/19 season and Premiership top point scorer - compared to when we signed him, he is worth more. Bizarre to suggest otherwise.

He deserves it, fantastic this season. But get him outside the cap if possible.

I have nothing against either Youngs brothers in person, Tom especially played well on Sunday with 100% lineout and one or two good carries, just don't think he's a good captain.

It doesn't matter if some fans don't like Tom Youngs as captain, the important thing is whether or not the players do, and if not Tom, who? I think long term George Ford could be the guy to take over from Tom but maybe the season after next as I still think Tom is the best man for the job currently starting regularly for us.

With Season Ticket renewal letters going out this week should we expect one or two annoucements?

Hope so, even though we won't be STHs this next season, only missed two in 14 years through illness - now it's no dog sitter. :smt009

Not quite as good yet, but will soon become number one choice before too long.

For me OTY is no longer our number 1 hooker, to weak at the lineout and one dimensional in his play, yes there was a time he was the best but alas time catches up with us all and it certainly has done with Tom, as a former STH for over 28 yrs there is no point in getting a ST any longer as you can get a ticket as and when you like unlike back some 10 to 20 yrs ago when we were a successful club and seats and places were at a premium back then, until we get the product right on the pitch the club shall see the continued downturn in season tickets, this is only my opinion that’s all, as for now I shall continue to support and follow from my comfort of my armchair 😀

Maybe I'm being super cynical but those reductions suggest to me that the mega signings that many of us are waiting for aren't going to happen. It also suggests to me that the club are pretty realistic about the fayre fans are likely to 'enjoy' next season.
