Perhaps they should. What would a merged Northampton and Leicester team be called?
Haley and Addison left for international rugby, nothing to do with money - as Muff says, we've (apparently) got way more €€€ than the IRFU so outbidding Munster and Ulster wouldn't be an issue.
It would be called Leicester and Northampton can fek off and join Wasps or Sale.
All privately funded. Ireland don't have that. And per populations thats not an excuse either.
Just poor management of resources and structures
East Midlands Pond Filth
100% can say Haley possibly took a cut of not remaining on parity coming here.
It's not all about money more how you structure and use it
Don't you live in that area?
Per population means fek all.
Ireland is rubbish at every other sport that isn't made up, so less distractions.
West is best, and the best is blessed
Eww West Midlander.
Well they play GAA in UK and USA.
And believe it or not I think rugby is 5th on list in national sports here.
Plus to be fair England are shite too at every other sport. Don't think a World Cup run where beating the mighty Panama changes that lol.
Don't forget you have the SA population to add on to yours as well.
They're locals. From South Africa Clonakilty Cork
We've done this before haven't we? Let's just go Anglo-Saxon
Wessex (Bath, Exeter; Bristol, CPirates, Jersey) AKA Southern Ponces
West Mercia (Gloucester, Worcester, Wasps; Hartbury) AKA Brum Scum
East Mercia (Northampton, Leicester; Bedford, Nottingham) AKA Brother Lovers
Northumbria (Sale, Newcastle; Leedshire, Doncaster, Rotherham) AKA Northern Twats
London (Harlequins, Saracens, LIrish; Ealing, Richmond, LScottish) AKA Cockney Bastards
West Mercia should just be "Mercia" seeing as Lichfield and Tamworth were the two capitals (religious and main base) of Mercia. East Mercia can be the called "The Table Scraps"
Did I image Sir sexton playing in France?
Yes he played there. Was a disaster in some senses and took a €200k paycut or something like it to come home. IRFU never over spent to get him home and it was more Sexton was happy to come home after a horrible 2 years.
Zebo, Donnacha Ryan and few others like Bowe can be on list of emigrated too.
Not sure what point on Sexton is by the way. Or is it you are backing up my original point on bigger deals abroad. Even more so for a guy like Zebo who tripled his wage.
Was agreeing money is clearly a big factor, but to be fair you can’t blame them playing career is relatively short in the grand scheme of things, just something that should probably be put off until towards the end of their career.
Regarding Ser Sextone of tart only playing 400 mins to Sir Farrel's 1200 Sexton was injured, but who's to say he would have played.
Why don't Ulster folk like the Royal Dublin society, should feel just like the"mainland".
Are there no non unionist types coming down?
Sexton played over 700 minutes for Leinster last year, after a Lions tour and playing nearly every international. Just sounds smart, rather than taking the ****.
