Fissler gets it WRONG!!

Just had a little chuckle to myself as Ultimate rugby tweeted on 9/1/18 that Bassett to Saints was a DONE deal. Fisslers response to this, was that they announced this news weeks ago in the rugby paper.
WRONG!!!
As we always say, if you put enough rumours out there you will get lucky with the odd one coming off.
I haven't seen Mr Fissler tweet today yet that he was misinformed....!

Iím not defending Fissler, however it was well known that Bassett had signed for Northampton. It was all over the Wasps and Saints boards. Also worth listening to the rugby pod, Goode asked Bassett during an after match dinner smiling smiley Anyhow when Mallinder left Saints Bassett had a clause which enabled him to have a rethink after which he decided to stay with Wasps. So not technically wrong at the time.

I think that Dorian West will be a good addition. Wonder if we are losing a coach. Hopefully not wells as he is very good. I think that Sam looked very strong at loosehead yesterday and scrummaged very well. A bit of work with west may really bring him on. Recruitment will be interesting- big 8?

Hopefully we retain Sinoti and Goneva. Any update on mermoz? Cavubati?

Maxime Mermoz tweeted yesterday a picture of himself working in the gym and quoted in French and English that he will be playing soon.

I was just reading this and take it all with a pinch of salt. As we know if you fling enough sh@t some will stick. I have seen both Socinoís when out and about recently and from what I know theyíre both very happy to be playing at Newcastle. When mentioned that Santi had been linked with Tigers he just giggled and said where do they get this stuff.

I wouldnít be surprised to see the Rumour on a certain podcast tomorrow night too.

It would be a real shame if JPS leaves. Has been one of our best signings of recent years and still performs consistently whenever called upon.

Surprised to read in TRP that Deano had been talking to Saints and Worcester and that he dropped out of Saints situation because he was uncertain of of his place in the pecking order. Seems improbable to me. Perhaps Fish got that from a Saints source who didn't want you suggest that Big Deano isn't interested.

Or more likely Fissler just made up the story about Deano moving to Saints, has been told that it is utter nonsense, and is now doing a reverse ferret & making up yet more cobblers to justify it all.

It was only yesterday Fissler said now that Richards had chosen to stay at Falcons, Heyneke Meyer was now favourite for the Saints job, 24 hours later and Saints announce Chris Boyd
Wrong again

In fairness to Fiss, all he did was to suggest that Deano is the best fit for the Saints' job description. Which he certainly is. I do not recall Fiss saying that an approach had been made or talks conducted until last weekend's declaration that Deano is staying put.

Hi Dick. No, he said last week that Deano was "favourite for the Northampton job".

I've not seen any bookies giving odds so I'm not sure exactly who was making him favourite, but that was his assertion, repeated over a number of weeks.

He gets some right, he gets some wrong. Best advice is to treat it as entertainment and not get too attached to any of his rumours.

Thanks Mark. I was away for a week and missed the piece you mention. I will follow your advice.

Yes but when he mentions a tenuous link such as Deano potentially going to Northampton, if it comes off he proclaims "As exclusively revealed in the rugby paper 2 months ago" when it should read "As exclusively speculated in the rugby paper 2 months ago". Somehow doesn't have the same ring to it.

He's obviously a half decent journalist and likes you Mark but he's quite often rude to the public when there's no need.

I don't understand this outpouring towards Fissler

He is paid to write articles which get people buying the paper. That means he will write any and everything as long as it is inside the line which brings in legal issues.

I have been well know to criticise journalists all over for their shoddy attempts at salemanship, but in reality I don't know why I bothered.


I got telt off by dickyg for thios at 1 point but I don't trust journalists as far as I can throw them.

But I do realise that some journalists are a lot better than others
