Thought with all the contract mess sorted now that Taufua has agreed to stay, a new thread might be in order.

I'm assuming that will be when Sarries are promoted - or Freddie T tries to sue Tigers.

Don't worry about it he'll be injured by then, Nadalo will be the one getting a hattrick....

Or Manu is red carded, banned four four games, returns in time of England call up, gets gets a groin injury in final international, rehabs for a month plays three minutes and aggravates the injury, gets bored with rehab assaults a police officer, faces criminal proceedings, says how much he appreciates Sale support, starts contract negotiations with Racing 92. Returns in time to go on The Lions tour. Leaves for Racing 92.

Was sort of hoping that conversation would go to the Manu thread.

Yes this thread is for wildly optimistic transfer rumours that the entire NZ backline is moving to Welford Road
