A sipute is brewing between the english RFU and Stade Francais, which is playing against Toulouse this week end at the stade de France. The RFU is refusing to let Haskell go while Stade Francais wants to have him for this game. Stade Francais has the law on its side as the agreement between the GUiness premiership and the RFU allowing to keep the players between the fixtures of the 6N is not applicable to a French Club. IRB regulations are also on the French club side and Haskell should be heading back to Paris. Note that the issue is not applicable to Wilkinson, he has negotiated the clause of the Guiness/RFU agreement in his own personnal contract with Toulon, which is a wise move even though this probably costs him a tiny discount on his wages. The fact that Wilko has personnally negotiated this clause equally proves that RFU is in the wrong by not letting Haskell go back to Paris, the row could eventually escalate as this is a clear breach of working contract. Note also that Satde Francais let Haskell join the pre-tournament camp which it was not obliged o. The question is why didn't Haskell plan the same clause as Wilko in his contract ??
