Although there are still games outstanding do we have any idea who will be back next season, have negotiations started with both players and coaches?
Obviously many supporters will have their own ideas but perhaps asking them to publish them here may give the wrong impression to those playing so perhaps its better to leave personnel opinions until after we have played the last game.
I've got to hand it to you, covkid53. To take Old Statler on like that by accusing him of making "a rather simplistic assessment" which was "rough" and "common" takes some doing. Do you realise who you're dealing with?
I doubt he'll accept your response. He's a bit above all that, dontchaknow.
I know of at least three championship players who are paid full time are doing part time jobs, to learn and qualify for jobs when they no longer paid full time rugby players. In fact at Bedford plays are encouraged to take a position with one of the clubs friendly employers. This can allow a player to train like a full time person. Interesting that coach Mike Rayer is being touted as the next Cardiff Blues coach.
