After last night's disappointment I thought what might cheer up the forum?

Everyone seems to like unsubstantiated fly half rumours!
so quade cooper has been told he's not required by the aru for the upcoming super season, he's therefore available for signing and perfect for us (he can't kick very well) when Lance goes.

It would be nice to dream even for a minute or two.

Not that there’s anything in this as rumours go, but he’s not without his problems.....

Does it matter in the big scheme of things how much a quality 10 `s wages are if he keeps the side in the premiership

Problem isn’t the wages, I’d imagine, but more the attractiveness of the club.

Can I chuck another unsubstantiated rumour into the mix? Jantjies played the last of this seasons internationals today.

As long as there is radio silence from the club no player will want to sign
We need stability and we haven't got it

Once again - approached players are inevitably told more than us.

It is easy to get an individual to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Saw a rumour he was off to Sale! If he goes there do you think they'll let us borrow McGinty?

That was one circulated in October, but has resurfaced.

They’ve since brought in a couple high profile players. Wonder if the money is still available? We may stand a chance.

Rumours in Aus say Japan.

I don't think it will happen, but it could be a smart signing for the new owners (if they happen).
Think of the PR, excitement of fans & players if we made a signing like this.
But it won't happen and maybe that's the right thing, smart thing & cheap thing to do.

But I believe we do need someone, even if it isn’t Quade. Lance gave us a lift and if he’s off we’ll miss that confidence at 10.

Fully agree with you USA.
I'm a touch disappointed with Lance todate, think there is a lot more to come.
Thought it would click on Friday, fingers crossed for Irish.
But you are right we need a sexy, character, that can play a bit of rugby and get the fans buzzing again.

Even Lance isn’t the full package. He’s very good though.

Quade now dropped by the Reds according to the auzzie press maybe a bit of legs in this rumour

Is it a rumour?

I thought that OP was pretty explicit that he thought it would be nice rather than the underground grapevine had said something.

Though granted this is how rumours start....

Sorry was not complaining.
Just seems that every name that comes on the market seems to be joining Sales, especially if they have a bit of history.
There was Connor, then Wade, and not forgetting league guy who retired from League & then free to join Union forgot his name, and now Cooper.
Doubt any came cheap.
What kind of crowds are they getting now?
They never use to be well supported, thus assume it's come from Take That's brother.

Solomona.

No, think they’re pretty empty typically. Not that we’ve been heaving...

I know it's a bit of fun speculating as to who might be, just might be recruited but I just can't see anyone spectacular until the question of ownership is settled - if then.

A "spectacular" signing would require a significant wage. This side of a change of ownership I can't see the present board committing themselves to finding the extra cash which would be required with a purchase still "up in the air".

A new owner coming in with "ambition" and, presumably money to spend, will be a different matter.

But until one is found the budget will be pitched, I imagine, at more or less present levels, just enough with a fair wind to stay in the premiership. That fits with recent Chairman's statements.

Mind you, we don't know what is going on behind the confidentiality agreements. All may well be in hand - but for all our sakes as well as player morale (c.f. Heem's comments on another thread) I do hope that matters are not drawn out beyond Christmas.

If rumblings are to be believed then they won’t be. Further patience required however.

Try to enjoy the fact that we’re going into the European break without being at the bottom of the pile.

Is this the benefit of having been bought out by WRFU instead of folding?

Not entirely. The dragons are also being bank rolled by the billionaire founder of Justeat.

The WRU can't afford all these signings. They're supposed to fund all the regions equally.
