why must he?  HAS he's done any coaching ?

No, but he was in the scouts.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

More JSL rumour

 

Interesting take on his alleged signing JSL no longer on the quota but why is that a story we're not known for filling up our quota of overseas players

UNLESS..............................🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

One word, visa.... 

I'm well aware of visas  L but it always makes me  laugh he has just played for five seasons at c%s and then all of a sudden when we want to sign him we could be  having visa problems

I think it's Indefinite Leave to Remain that he applied for rather than just a Visa extension.

As an aside, I think it's highly plausible that, for instance, an expectation of announcing a particular signing on a given night could have been delayed pending the results of the "Life in the UK" test which has to be passed before ILR is granted.

I can understand why and applaud the club the club are waiting for LSJ to get his future sorted out but my point was an ILR has nothing to do with getting a visa  to play rugby but the original tweet implied by saying 3rd time of asking,if he failed we wouldn't

He would be changing employers and therefore have to reapply which while it may be likely to get approved could be subject to delays. Considerably easier if one isn't needed.

Hopefully the JSL signing happens; I'd be delighted to see him join us as he's the kind of player that can and will improve us in various ways.

We clearly need to bring some fresh size and energy into the pack (one of the reasons we struggled against an eminently beatable Toulouse), and presumably Coach Terry will have identified this too and will be taking steps to strengthen as required. Two monster props who can do big minutes would of course be perfect, but easier said than done......

Well he "liked" the club's Instagram post promoting season tickets today, which I just thought was a commendable display  of community spirit by someone who has played for C*s for the last few years...😀

Yes and no A I think we got lads with good energy good feet and good ball skills in the pack but at the moment only have koppy and coops who just like to drive the ball in so definitely need some more grunt up front

Club's social media saying if they get to 100 membership sales by 6pm they'll announce a "big resigning for 2022". Locky the short-priced fav you'd think.

Locky is the only sizeable name not re-signed and being the captain and longest server he would call as a big re signing 

still hoping for a couple of big front rowers and hopefully a specialist centre to come on and could do with a rangey back rower like Halton was last year

Really so if we get to 99 they won't don't they realise how silly that sounds 

NAR NAR NA NAR NA We know something that  YOU don't

I think with the right coaching Callum F could be turned into one

On about season tickets . I wonder if the club is anticipating some extra fines next season and so the season ticket  holders are in the firing line, as the price has rocketed With the £80 on top for premier it is a fait whack. I wonder if you will be able to pay match for match re Fev in Cumbria perhaps.on premier.

Rocketed really yes the cost has increased but remember H  we get two extra home games this year 13  as opposed to 11 last year
