I’ve heard from several people he is on excess of £400k ... Take it or leave it.


I suspect we may have heard it from the same source, nailed on for accuracy at the time.

I also agree that some of our best rugby has been with Cips at 10 and OW at 12

ShedOrdead, why do you refer to 'Quins as 'Queens'?

Just seen this, sorry Glen.

Abbreviation of "Hairy Queens", itself a bastardisation of Harlequins and an underhand yet affectionate nick-name for them in the shadows of HQ that I always understood to be common currency, certainly in the rugby clubs to the West of Oxford and maybe further afield as well. Open to correction or education on the latter point.

Why not?...we're not Glassdoor apparently.

Sense of humour bypass surgery?
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

How many times have OW and DC played together - twice? For me our best 10-12 is DC and Billy T.

A lot of the pre-called moves require a more 'ball playing 12' - they like one to step up to be first receiver and then DC to loop behind. It gives him so much more time on ball. It's a joy to watch at times.

But maybe Billy T will be needed at 13.
