not really,i was gutted they left at the time but foxy was made captain for the season we desperately needed someone like him to stick around and 8 weeks later he said he was leaving,this forum is all about opinions and that's mine.
Just a weird way of thinking in my eyes.
You’re asking a guy to give up the chance to (likely) near enough double his earning potential, and sample a different culture/way of living, all because he was made joint captain a few months earlier in a pretty token gesture.
I would put a bet that not many people on this forum would turn down an extra £100k-£250k a year, I certainly wouldn’t.

While I agree it depends what you are already earning. If you are on £250k then doubling your money has to be interesting but if you are on £2m a year, maybe not as much. I was offered a bit more to go and work in one of our Dutch factories but it wasn't enough to drag me away from the rest of what I love about my life - location, the team, family, existing job satisfaction. It's not all about money.

a few years ago work was a bit tight and the ospreys season tickets were cheaper that the scarlets,i didn't leave my team.Wink
Don’t think things being a bit tight would be enough for me either. Maybe a gun to my head would be enough. Just maybe mind you.
my point was I would have had more money in my pocket had I moved,as it is i'm with you on the gun.

Signing a current international during a World Cup year would be very curious from the Tigers.

Our internationals are going to play very little club rugby next season.

Can't blame him really.


Leaving us twice? It would be a shame. To some fans it would spoil his legacy.

Stevo left twice. There are few with a greater legacy in the club than him!

You can easily see Barclay being at the fore of one channel’s programmes for quite some time. He can play the straight role or inject plenty of humour at the right time.

Fingers crossed for him.

I reallly hope we bring him back as a coach one day. Very intelligent guy.

Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Wonder if he will be fit for Edinburgh’s visit to us.
