Heard a nasty rumour that Falcons are about to go bust, I do hope it's not the case. Any further knowledge out there?

Surely only a matter of time till we hear the same (rumours) about Wasps?

I'll be surprised but delighted if all 13 P-shareholders are still about when the rugby starts again.

Iím surprised Newcastle have not announced any signings.

I hope they are ok.

Due the the differences between the Championship and Premiership season they are in limbo and potentially have no games until 2021. From the above article it looks like they are living on breadcrumbs (understandably) and some of the more successful players are even chipping in. Its not a good situation.

We already hear those rumours every 6 months or so whenever there's an update on the bond!

Itís great that weíre not the club in the news for the wrong reasons for once. Tigers are in a mess, rumours of discontent at Irish and Quins letting a few players go. Think the re-signings we did show the boys are in this together and hopefully that togetherness will stand us in good stead.

Obviously not - nobody is. However, as a club we seem to have sorted out our affairs with players and, hopefully, staff with only one obvious disgruntled player (Carr) which is almost unique amongst the other teams.

A number of twitty things before he left from people he met near his former home saying that he indicated he wanted to stay but Wasps didn't share that desire. It may be a money thing but that is only something he would be able to confirm. Shame though.

I see that we have announced that we are going to bust the bond covenants again.
