We better sign up Croft pretty sharpish and pray he stays fit.

I reckon he has signed a reduced Contract TBH.

Wouldn't make sense For Gibson to go if Croft was going.

Unless we have a signing lined up.

That's a shame, wonder why, yes Crofty still has a year or two in him and may be in front for a while. No guarantee he will get any more game time down the road either.

Gutted that Gibson has left Tigers :smt013

I honestly thought he would sign up for a long time - its a real shame for the club.

I hope he does really well, though (& ousts Clark from the side for ever :smt023 )

Is this a sign that a SH back row player will be joining after the world cup taking up some of the salary cap?

Personally would rather keep Croft out of the two of them, if that was the only option!

Saints have always eyed our jewels!

Maybe Mauger is bringing the All Blacks back row with him. :smt003

+1 to both lines, my thoughts also.

Mauger bring a 6 and 7 with him, just a thought.

That's really poor news!
Why has one of our young standout prospects decided to leave and join one of our rivals?
With their existing backrow, he can not be guaranteed a starting place.

This not good news at all.

He has been one of our best players this year. I'm shocked we've let him go, even more so to Saints

Yes Williams and Goneva have shown talent but Gibson, in my opinion, has been the only truely great signing of the last three seasons. Shocking.

We're doomed I tell ya, were doomed. Next you will tell me that Goodey didn't eat all the pies! It's clear the Tigers need to lose their soul and get the money men in. Why didn't Cockers break the bank to keep Gibson?

The home of world class rugby but can't keep the young talent to drive the club forward.

I'm sure though, that the club have everything in hand, and that it is part of plan.
