Hockings would be a great signing, although it looks as though both are apparently after deals in Japan

All players chasing dollars and they rarely do well for us.

To be fair, Im not sure Id want either of them. No one wants to take a pay cut, but the circumstances are pretty extreme.

In other news, it seems that Peter-Steph du Toit is staying an SA. For the time being, at least.

There'll need to be heavier. 60 grammes won't give much shove in the scrum

And of course these 3 idiots will be negotiating their new salaries from a position of strength....

They had a spat with Brad Thorn, who is a my way or the highway kind of bloke. They chose the highway to get out of their contracts. Word is they will sign for the Brumbies.

I thought RA had said they will not be able to play in Australia for a period of time, and because the pay cuts extend across all the states??

quinalan, their contracts are with RA not the Reds.
They terminated their contracts with RA. Its been reported that RA responded by immediately releasing them from their contracts (and saving a few dollars :D)
Can't see how they can sign up with Brumbies unless its on new negotiated lower pay RA contract.
As Blutakk stated above - they are now in position of strength to negotiate new contracts /sac
