Re: Sale planning on moving back to,umm, Sale

Trafford Council have now pulled their funding package and general support for the new scheme so looks like it won't happen now.

Re: Unconfirmed sources.

Not often I get things right but I suggested a West Park link up in this thread a while ago.....even a broken clock is correct twice a day etc.... The return to the Tykes name has been known for a while as that was their name when fixture lists were released a couple of months ago. So, it’s hardly ...

Re: Grassroots Game

Yes it is a worry. Even more of a worry is the likely prospect of no rugby at all before Christmas. We are relatively lucky in that we have only 1 paid employee. He joined us too late to be furloughed and the club has stuck by him so far but there is more or less no income, no product means no, or ...

Re: Transfer news, fake news, baseless speculation, and various levels of truthiness - Season 2019/20

He would have to attempted to get the best possible contract. It's not quite as simple as the Mail made it out to be. Don't know why the Times are saying they need Tigers permission if it's a breech of contract. I expect a civil court would judge it through a lens of what’s reasonable. Unreasonable...

Re: Good reads

Couple of decent rugby books lately. Fringes by Ben Mercer is another excellent rugby book, about life as an 'almost made it' pro player. Mercer joins French club Rouen as they are taken over by two business men with designs on taking the club from the lower divisions of French rugby up to the big ...

Re: Sale planning on moving back to,umm, Sale

I think it is already home to various clubs such as Sale Utd and Sale Harriers isn’t it, although appreciate neither will generate the same crowds. There will be a consultation starting this month I think. Link is in the one I posted above.

Re: Sale planning on moving back to,umm, Sale

My recollection is that AJ Bell was not built with Sale in mind. It was initially (and still is) the home of Salford RL. Sale we’re looking to exit Edgeley because some title issues didn’t allow them to do the redevelopment of it that Kennedy had initially intended and they took a lease on a ground ...

Re: Sale planning on moving back to,umm, Sale

Quick Google check; Peel and SCC set up a JV co and have continually pumped money into that.That JV co granted a 25 year lease to Sale in 2012 so presumably there is a way out of that. Any council involvement on the new one would be Trafford rather than Salford.

Re: Sale planning on moving back to,umm, Sale

The council must surely still be owed a mint on the AJ Bell? They might well not be keen to rush into a new venture. Is the AJ theirs or Salford's though? Puja Sharks don't own it; that has been Diamond's beef, that they can't keep the bar revenue etc. Mind you they knew the deal at the outset but ...

It's a decent location, just off the M60 and close to a Metrolink stop. Hopefully it comes off.

Re: Transfer news, fake news, baseless speculation, and various levels of truthiness - Season 2019/20

Adding to Gloucester’s turmoil, just been announced David Humphreys is leaving the club. Lots of theories, lots of statements. My view is there is probably an element of truth to all of it, but condensing director of rugby and head coach into one position saves money and provides a bit more clarity...
