Sorry if already posted but the rumour at my work (friend of the son of someone who 'knows' type thing) is that he's joining for 650k+ a year. Madigan meant to be on 430k. Crass to talk money perhaps however if true...frightening. Won't be long until the first million pound player... In the championship!


Both players are good, but are they good enough to justify salaries like that :?

It is quite simplistic, but a player is only worth what someone is willing to pay. Bris need a decent FH, there are few on the market hence why they've splashed the cash on Madigan. They also have to compensate the players for the likely year of playing 2nd tier rugby.

The same comments have been made about us for the alleged amount we're paying Williams and Ruskin, but we desperately needed a controlling FH and a top notch LH, so we had to be willing to pay above the market price.

A few Leicester players seem pretty unimpressed with this

I feel for the Tiggers fans, but at least we're not getting MOC!

That one has been kicking around for a while but doesn't really make sense.
