Re: Club Statement: Cillian Willis

It appears that the Club managed to successfully argue that the Doctors were independent and therefore the SS was not responsible. That is understandable as in medical situations general consensus is that a Doctor's decision is final, regardless of whether it opposes any company policy. of course this can lead to issues in some cases.

Re. Sam Peters.

His tweet earlier today does create the idea that SS are still somehow still involved in a case with Cillian regarding his concussions. However, the Club's statement and re-reading SP's tweet makes it clear that SS are not involved. If Sam Peters was to do the honorable thing, he would tweet clarification that Sale Sharks are not involved, with reference to no money being exchanged between the two parties as a settlement. However, given his current relationship with SD that will not happen and some will understand why.

It would probably be best if he stopped reporting on anything to do with SS or SD for a while. His previous work highlighting concerns about concussions is admirable but no everyone recognises the issue there is not point of him continuing to beat the public over the head with it.
