Not looking good, tb. Apart from Tuilagi are there other first team regulars leaving? I don't recognise the other two.

Where is your own stance on this Tigerburnie, with the players or club? On the surface it looks like the club offer is in alignment with other English Premiership clubs.

It seems the players moving on mainly played centre, this leaves a bit of a hole.

Kobus van Wyk seems a decent signing for the Tigers.

He’s been finishing well in SRA for the Canes.

Good ‘tache as well.

I see Farrell has been red carded for a pretty shocking clothesline tackle on Charlie Atkinson of Wasps. Must put his participation in D4 in some doubt, previous disciplinary record notwithstanding 😅😅😅

Anybody else see the first Bath try against Quins today? Shows there's a team worse than us at receiving a restart.

Shocking challenge by nice guy Owen. Max 6 game ban otherwise he misses the finish to the 6N at end of October 😉

Wasps head coach Lee Blackett:

"Charlie [Atkinson] is up and talking. You know Owen, he is physical but he didn't mean it.

"We know Owen is not that type of player - he plays on the edge but genuinely never goes over that edge. He got that slightly wrong.

Will be interesting to see if he misses the Leinster game, his tackling technique should have been addressed ages ago by his coaches (and himself).

If he had been wearing an English shirt at the time, I wonder what Eddie Jones take on his tackling technique would be? Despite Blacketts comments, I have always thought of him as a thug. Hanging around to '"ensure Atkinson was ok" was either very caring,........Or very clever as the first phase of contrition.

5 game ban for Farrell. Misses remaining league games and the Heineken Cup QF. Started at 10 games and got 50% reduction with Mark McCall, Eddie Jones and a founder of a charity he works with to speak in his defence.

I don’t think he can grumble.
