Presumably Genge is being offered Afoa's cap if he's retiring. I'd think Bristol would need a tighthead more in that scenario.

Genge is either winding people up or just saying negotiations are far from over.

Imagine you are an up and coming top rated front row. In years gone by, there was only one place you could improve. Now, it's the exact tommy opposite. So until the Board and all the Coaches bar Stanko are gone, then Players of substance won't be staying..

Rugby paper saying Genge has snubbed a offer from Bristol and is close to signing a 3 year contract with Tigers
Offer from Bristol? But they aren't allowed to talk to him prior to January.
The rule in your last sentence didn’t stop Mike Ford poaching George for Bath.

Dan Cole at the club, great track record. A certain farmer down the road for advice as well.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

The two international hookers with 120 caps between them. Graham Rowntree must be available for the occasional extra session as his lad is in the academy.

You say poaching, but Fordy didn't want to leave, I say poor retention negotiations and stubbornness by the board lost us Fordy to Bath!

Considering Wig is now in Munster I highly doubt that.

Wig only comes home when Munster play in main land UK for saturday and sunday night then heads back to Limerick. Loving life over there I believe.

I'd forgotten he'd gone to Munster. Thought he was still working with Georgia. He'll do well at Munster.

Rugby Paper says that Manu is “interested” in the Wolfpack offer which would see him return to Leicester afterwards.

There is zero point in releasing Tuilagi now when our club is totally up :censored: creek.
Let him go when we are back on stable ground.
