you are correct; the Thames is the county boundary and most of Henley is on the northern bank, as is the rugby club. The cricket club and the Leander rowing club are in Berkshire, being across the bridge.

Like I said, no definite, but seems to admit there is something 'confidential' in his contract. Bit different from earlier quotes he gave on the subject

Seeing as it is now past January, and clubs can 'talk' to players - when do you think Saracens will come out and state that there are any agreements for transfers - considering that the Daly and Singleton deals were all rumored last month...

Daly's contract with Wasps allows him to talk to other clubs in January 2020 - unless the 'special' clause is invoked in which case all date provisions are supposedly off

Singleton was offered a chunky increase at Worcester evidently, so his agent has earnt his crust

He does make himself known in a caustic manner on other sites. No-one seems to take any notice though. Does he actually support a team (probably the multi coloured lot). Do you think he's related to that ballsache personage?

Grown men doing impersonations of Tommy Cooper at rugby matches is pretty silly but more silly are the tarnished trophies in your trophy cabinet.

But it's good to see that so many of you and your fellow Tommy Coopers continue to be so concerned about the truth that you spend your time attacking the messenger.

Truth hurts doesn't it?

Typical internet troll. I wonder if its the same person all the time or maybe some application that binds onto sites like this and others!

The technique is always the same.


Make an unproven often mendacious assertion and trumpet that it as gospel.Axiomatic.


Any counter claim is either ignored, or circumvented by repetition of the initial assertion.

Any jibe at the troll causes a repletion and with enhancements.

It's risible and its old news. But if it none the less amuses little minds they should at the same be aware that blind wilful erstwhile defamatory claims cut no ice here

And reveal a depth of vacuity on the part of the troll.

Samlee99...

"spend your time attacking the messenger" I try not to attack you but give you the attention that Trolls like you crave lime a drug.. trying to give you your fix!!

Now with regards to you constant jibe about money and players wages... pop along and listen to The Rugby Dungeon pod 7th Jan, Episode 91 and listen to a real grown up who plays the game professionaly, Mathew Tait.

He will explain that some players will take less wages to play for a SUCCESSFUL club... he did.

Samlee, if you really want to be taken seriously you need to enter a debate, rather than just banging the same drum. So, firstly, how about answering 1876-Fez?

Quote:

Samlee99... easy question.. have you listened to that Podcast with Mathew Tait?

Secondly, despite the public statements from those who had carried out the investigations at the time that Sarries didn't breach the letter of the cap (at worst they may have exploited some loopholes that others disagreed with, probably because they hadn't spotted them themselves), if it were ever proven that there were indisputable breaches (i.e. something more than just you saying there were) what exactly do you think anybody on this site could do about it? None of us has any influence whatsoever. So please de-stress your life and let it go...and leave us to any private feelings of guilt we might, or might not have!

Not sure if it's been covered in this forum already but it's ow official that Le Roux (not sure where) and Nathan Hughes (to Bristol) are both leaving Wasps at the end of this season. Add to the mix the loss of Christian Wade this season and possible loss of Elliot Daly that's a hell of a lot of quality to lose in one season.

Mark McCafferty's truth certainly hurt you, didn't it, little man

Welcome to the internet, folks. Where people can spout their own ideas and theories from the safety of their own homes (or nastily smelling bedrooms in this case).

The truth, whereby whichever team this muppet supports just wasn't as good, is conveniently ignored. It's far more palatable to proclaim that the only reason your Corinthian spirited team lost was because someone else cheated.

Yawn.

Now back on topic to the Daly business.

Re: Elliot Daly to Saracens?
SarrieSaint 16 January, 2019 16:01
GazzaFez I believe WLR is off to Japan to top up his pension.

I am clinging to an outside hope that with no first choice FB at Wasps and that being Dalys current England position plus Fekitoa being mainly a 12 so less of a threat to his other club position maybe, just maybe ...

FYI - I believe samlee is...shocker I know, a Tigers fan. Given he's old enough to know who Tommy Cooper is you have to question his intelligence rather than maturity.

Best not to feed him, in the same way you wouldn't feed other vermin such as rats.

Re: Elliot Daly to Saracens?
Blanchefleur 17 January, 2019 12:26
Following the announcement of the players involved with the England training camp, villagesarrie opined that there must be a good reason for our coaches to sanction a move for Daly. Eddie Jones sees Daly as a fullback.
Arguably Saracens currently already have the best fullback playing in the Premiership.
However, not being selected for the England training camp may be an indicator that the time has come to earn some serious dosh abroad and Daly, at fullback, would then make a great deal of sense.

Re: Elliot Daly to Saracens?
villagesarrie 17 January, 2019 13:16
Blanchefleur, for me, Alex is the best fullback in English rugby (IMO) but one assumes that the coaches at Saracens see a good reason for signing Daly....personally, I don't see what that reason might be other than as some sort of replacement as I haven't been convinced by Daly at fullback (tbh, have never really been a fan of his for some reason I can't really put my finger on) and I just hope that reason doesn't involve us losing excellent players permanently.

Re: Elliot Daly to Saracens?
King Zak 17 January, 2019 13:50
Open for debate I know, but I would suggest that Saracens have the two best fullbacks in the Premiership, Goode & Williams - although Charles Pitau is a very close call.
