"..and we've got some big news coming up about London Irish's future. The Terence Hepetema signing was announced on Tuesday, and we are close to being able to make more announcements both on and off the pitch in the not too-distant future""

I wonder what the "big news" is? Any body got any ideas?

Prem rugby sale back on the cards so big boost of cash if that goes through. Will
we spend to the salary cap as Iím sure most others will or will we need to pay down debt?

Not suggesting thatís the news but without a salary cap sized budget weíre in trouble.

Hate to resurrect this again, but don't know if anyone else picked up on BBC South Today sport signing off with "big rugby news tomorrow that we'll talk about in tomorrows show, the news will break during the day"

Is it us? Any other rugby clubs covered by South Today?

Curiouser and curiouser cried Alice.....

Hopefully the Brentford deal is a better deal for us and frees up a little more cash, M_W - so there's that

Whichever league we're in next season at the Madstad, they will have to reduce the cost of ST tickets to try to keep the last meagre bunch of us 'disenfranchised' Reading4 from drifting away...

Can't wait for the move, about time. The revenue model had to change which it couldnt with the existing contract and Reading is just too large.

Plus I've heard we have a couple more signings to be announced (not inc PJ rumour). It's great to hear some positive news rather than the constant moaning which I'm sure I'll have to endure on here for another 18 months!

Plus if the CVC deal goes through that will help enormously with the Brentford committment.

Keep it going Irish

as one who travels over 140miles to home games as a season ticket holder, the feel of reading is like a morgue at times but this move as long as I can park near will be something exciting to look forward to

Any names or are you not able to share?

I agree though, positive news out of the club is great and the move to Brentford is definitely positive from my perspective.
