Can't pay a back up £300k Madigan will go back to Ireland/France.

If you could get him for back up 10 money I'd be all over it!


Translation please!

Sorry, the earlier post was about a back up to Cips.

Madigan is on big money at Bristol we couldn't afford someone of his cost to be a back up.

Jeppy, with Owen Williams rumoured to be leaving and also rumoured to be on a very good salary, I think there may be a salary case for this and it may make sense.

If Owen is off, Kriel gone and others also rumoured to be leaving I agree 100% that the salary might be available, however I'm going to disagree 100% that making your "back up 10" one of your top 5 paid players makes sense.

There is no way Williams was brought in on that salary to be anything but a nailed on starter, it hasn't worked out that way and it's a shame and nobody's fault but to pay your second 10 that kind of money deliberately when Cips is likely to play 90% of the minutes I can't see.

We need to give Evans a real crack at being DC’s understudy also is Coetzer still on the books after resigning? He looked like a real prospect.

What’s the point in having g this talent around and not using it. Let them have a crack if they aren't up to the job then look outside.

I agree Simmo468 - I remember when Cipriani was emerging out of Wasps' youth system and some Wasps fans were worried he'd be a liability in the first team. The rest is history.
