Looks as though re-signing for another season is on the way.

I don't know or claim to know anything.
But don't be surprised if he is not re-signed.
I think he will sign, but say never.
He wants to sign, could be there are few takers for 34 year old with the money he wants.
He could also be wanting a lot more as rugby salaries apparently have rise dramatically in the last 2 years.

It seems Wynand wants Morne Steyn to come.

Seems they have been friends since 18 and roomed together for 10 years whilst at the Bulls. That being the case I'm not sure I buy the line that he doesn't know if Steyn is coming or not. Makes me think that there might well be talks ongoing.



Whatever you do, do it safely!

Model professional. Great for the dressing room. Fantastic role model for the youngsters coming through whilst at 34 years old he isn't going to be viewed as a "bed blocker"
Highly intelligent and will make some club an excellent coach if that's how he sees his future.

Now I tend to believe that what appears in the WN has been approved by the club if not actually planted there.

I have absolutely no proof of this - it's just a feeling.

So, if I am right, Olivier wouldn't have said what he is reported to have said without Sixways at the very least approving it.

That is not to say that it means that Steyn is coming.

Mind you, if he does arrive, Sixways will have a very South African accent!

Anything Wynand can do to smack down Morne's alleged Stade eye watering salary would be a great help

Apparently if Morne steyn comes then hougaard could leave as there's an issue with the salary cap. If steyn comes then it would mean reducing hougaards wage. It was debated that it wouldn't matter to hougaard perhaps as steyn is another saffer and friends with Olivier. Apparently the club didn't want to make hougaard unhappy. This is from a close source to the club.

Could we not make him a marquee signing?

That's what I thought but could be te'o and hougaard already take up the marquee positions. All I've heard is there's an issue being that Francois' wage could be reduced if Steyn signs. Bearing in mind hougaard should be on more than he's actually on he might go if steyn comes

It all seems a bit odd, the other thing that does not make sense to me is why would it have to be FH who it impacts? We have been told we are under the salary cap so could we not recruit in another position and make up the difference with the spare we have in the cap?
Obviously I have no idea of the terms of FH's contract but would the club actually be able to reduce FH's salary is another thought.

Why in the world would we potentially upset Hougaard, who has, arguably, got us out of trouble twice in consecutive seasons and is as close to world class as we've got!

Surely rubbish this...

Remember?

Utter rubbish

There are so many ways round the salary cap ask starriest and Wasps.

And it goes up by a cool 1million for next season.
