Absolutely, that is the most sensible thing to do..........which is exactly why it is unlikely to happen!

Listening to the Dont give a ruck podcast with Flats, he seems to suggest that GS didn’t agree to the new contract put in front of him and decided to pursue other options.

From this (if accurate of course) If Irish have paid him 100% of his wages then I expect his original contract to be in place. If they have only paid 75% as was suggested they have done for the whole squad, that contract is no longer valid.

In a previous role I had to employ a sizeable number of employees, many of whom refused to sign contracts for various reasons. For legal purposes as soon as we had paid them their wages, that in itself was tantamount to signing the contract so we never bothered to chase the signature thereafter.

Except that if one side is in the right, then why would they do that?

Taken from London Irish 'Craic' site.

From the Mail, reporting on Leicester’s player difficulty there was also this paragraph

“ London Irish are in a similar stand-off with their squad as they try to introduce a further 25 per cent cut to all contracts, despite having agreed blanket reduced deals only a fortnight ago. The players are resisting with many looking for ways out.”

Is this the answer that frees up Skivington's contract question?

Not if the negotiations are ongoing and their old terms are still be applied.

What an interesting article, very well written. Thanks for sharing.

We'll have to wait and see what happens, but it's a shame that his tenure has started this way.

Why?

I would be more worried if they said we were welcome to him. :o

I'm with him on this bit, about coaching...
