The problem with getting people to drink more is the likely rise in trouble in the ground and only non drivers can drink, there is only so much pop I can stomach and it's already bad enough people going in and out getting drinks as it is, then back to the loo to pee it out again,also people only have do much cash to spend on a day out, it's not cheap by the time that the ticket has been paid for then fuel if you travel a fair way as lots do, then a drink or two and a burger the best way to increase income is more fans, that requires a more success or more entertainment of a different kind. The other ways are more hospitality boxes and higher sponsorship

I/we enjoy staying behind after the game to have a few pints and talking crap with others and the musical act in the Shogun. If that act stayed on an extra hour say, I would also stay. I pick and choose the home games to see and spend my money on that.

Luther Burrell looking to head back to Union after failing to break through at League.

If you were after an experienced hard running centre you could do a lot worse.

I will predict he will end up at Leicester.

Sorry but if you were after an experienced, hard running, centre you could do a lot better IMHO.

I’d be surprised to see him get a premiership contract, he did well at times but not sure he’ll be that attractive at his age.

Sorry, to clarify, I meant one who is immediately available.

A hard running centre will almost certainly be on our shopping list. Would happily take Vakatawa or Hendrickson based on the links so far...

30 now so a tad "old". I think we need to lower our average age and going forward build a young Team that can grow together, with a couple of older heads to calm them down.
