Re: Lawrence Okoye is now 29 years old.

Difference between Okoye and some of the other players mentioned on this list is that most of the others were actually decent rugby players. If Okoye was any good, he wouldn't have been dicking around with discus. I don't think he even got a senior academy deal anywhere (happy to be corrected). Cle...

I've been working compressed hours (4 day weeks) for the last 5 years or so with Monday off to cover childcare initially.

Sure there will be a little more to the story, so will be interesting to see how it plays out.

He'll definitely be the cheap option for Gloucester (perhaps a little less so now), but he does seem to be on the right track. So many variables though and he'll need a little luck to succeed.

So Gloucester announced Skivington as head coach this evening. LI just released this. Not sure what the angle here is, but doesn't look great by Gloucester on the face of it. Perhaps looking to use a COVID reduction in salary as an initial breach by LI. Who knows though https://www.london-irish.com/...
