We will still have the problem next Season that a very large proportion of the wage cap will be spent on players who are only playing a relatively small number of games for Tigers .
But with specific reference to Manu, who is no doubt a marquee player, the cap is irrelevant.
All I said was ........

Delighted with Manu re-signing.

12.Reid, Eastmond
13.Manu, Taute

Midfield depth has been a problem for a few seasons and that is an improvement in a key area. Add Andy Forsyth on dual-reg, Worth being useful at 13 and Hardwick a talented 12. I'm optimistic about that for next season.

I'm greedy. in line with rumours on another thread. Could we have Jonathon Davies as well please?

My best guess was that he might just sign for another year so I an very happy at his decision. As others have said, money isn't everything but it does help :smt003

I still see a strong end to the season :smt023

So are we looking at 2 years followed by a testimonial year or 2 years then France then coming back to Tigers to finish his career? Is he still entitled to a testimonial year if he breaks his service? How do those work?

A testimonial year will happen during a season you're signed to the club, so if he is getting one, it'll be in the next two years.

Word from Munster is that Taute is a done deal to Tigers.

Most fans seem sad to see him go as well but Munster have got a surplus of centres coming through. Farrell, Scannell and Arnold have all be capped by Schmidt and Shane Daly who is about to graduate from their academy is meant to be a talent.

The necessity now is to get Ford locked in. No good having centres and wings if there is not a 10 with vision to feed them. A 9 with a fast service is also essential, and YBY doesn’t altogether fill that bill.

Has played both 13 and 12 for them this season. Also captained the team so seems to be a very good player to have in the squad. Big carrier too.

I imagine his testimonial will be 2020-21 which would tie in with 10 years as a first team player at the club
