Anyone any ideas as to why this has happened now ?

How much game time has MM been getting ?

Still recovering from knee surgery it seems.

If Mullan still isn't fit and has had his contract cancelled it seems likely he won't be fit again before the end of the season, if he is able to return at all.



Whatever you do, do it safely!

You can add to these two Jake Cooper-Woolley, who's joined Sale, Elliott Daley, who's move to Sarries is supposed to be signed and sealed, and Willie Le Roux, who's off to Japan after the RWC apparently.

You can add Wade to that aswell.

And talk of Cruise going as well?

Wasps are already nothing like the team they were over the previous couple of years and if these moves all take place without some remarkable replacements its not hard to imagine some very serious problems returning - remember they were a game or two away from bankruptcy before they left Wycombe.

They have since taken on a massive debt and if they can't substantially fill the Ricoh the interest could become a serious problem let alone paying the wages.

Not to mention the lawsuit from SISU which is still ongoing.

As for the Sisu case, Coventry City's agreement to play at the Ricoh ends at the end of this season and Wasps are refusing to negotiate a new agreement until the case ends. That could be a significant dent in income next season.

Not to mention the end for Cov City, potentially.

Thatís a big place to finance on your own.

CCFC pay £100k a year in rent. Hardly significant.

£100k a year is a decent squad player or 3 Academy players. What happens to the bar and food takings? I presume that is retained by the Events/Stadium business, the profits from which also support Wasps rugby. So another hit there.

Every little helps, even for Prem rugby clubs.

If the contract has been cancelled or paid out then it might be that the injury shows no sign of improvement or that they are cost cutting. MM is a first rate prop and if fit would be welcome most places I would have thought so I take this as a bad sign for him in injury terms. Would be a sad end to a good career - decent bloke and decent player.If he were properly fit I would have him back
