Launchbury turns Sharks down.....
05 December, 2017 14:00
....despite being offered £400,000+ and a leadership role at Sale Sharks.

Re-signs for Wasps - once a Wasp etc. etc.

surely he wasn't offered 400k and a leadership role because it isnt 1st Jan yet?

As usual, Dimes isnt aware of any contact being made.

Depends on what calendar you use I guess.

400k doesnít seem like a ludicrously high offer for a captain of his current club and regular England international. I donít imagine his current wasps deal/new offer s that much less and they have the bonus of almost certainly finishing top 6 this year

My memory could be playing tricks on me, but I'm pretty sure that when Charlie last renewed with us (2007 for 3 years?) a figure of £350k was published.

Mmmm, that a shame. Even £400K and the captaincy couldn't tempt him but if Wasps offered similar then you have to ask why would he consider moving from a team better placed to finish in the top 4.

Rob Miller and Tom Cruise have agreed new deals too.

I'd still like to see Tommy Taylor return, I was bitterly disappointed when he left.

I see that Stooke has extended at Bath too.

Can't we find an enormous Cumbrian farmer and get him in the Academy. Our production line of second rows isn't great. And the good ones end up at no 8!!!

I think that the last "made in Cumbria" is Will Addison (imports via Sedbergh School don't count (Sm100))
Sadly, any identified talent on the DPP pathway is now routed to the Budgies, as Cumbria is Budgieland.

I'm 6ft 5, will weigh about 20 stone after Christmas, went to Sedbergh and my parents live on a farm in Cumbria. Unfortunately I'm 39 but give me a year and £400k and I'll see what I can do.

How old was Hines. Can we negotiate on the wage?

I'll counter your offer with the following :-

I'm 6ft 3" & 17 st (before Christmas), Cumbria born and bred (strong in the arm, thick in the head (Sm137)) and drive past several farms each day.
My most recent playing experience was as (now much prized) TightHead prop. I'll happily do the job for £395000 pa . I think that age is an invisible barrier and being 50 shouldn't be an issue. Likewise, the world of medicine is marvellous and I'm sure that Sale would be able to sort some new knees for me, to overcome the (minor) issues of arthritis, worn cartlige and ligament damage.

If Sale could deposit my first salary payment into my account this week, I'll be available from Sat 16th onwards (this Saturday is M&J day at the Club and I've already paid my money for a meal)

As I'm only 9 stone I suppose I'd have to settle for £200k, but I'd be happy with that as a supplement to my State Pension!

I'd be easy to lift in the lineout too. Just put me down gently!

Every mornin' at the mine you could see him arrive
He stood six-foot-six and weighed two-forty-five
Kinda broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip
And everybody knew ya didn't give no lip to big John
Big Bad John
