As I have said many times on here, I never saw him leaving especially as Gustard has spoken so highly of him on a number of occasions.

The problem is always the same isn't it when it comes to contract negotiations , the players aren't  in control of all the media stuff .
'Good' agents will link them with other Clubs , and use the various 'rumour' sites to spread the word .
They hope that gives them an edge in contract renegotiations and hopefully ups their worth .
Pretty shady world but its not going away
Unfortunately all the speculation can be unsettling , but on the other hand , what would we talk about ?

I love the rumour mill at this time of year! As a fan, it's exciting to speculate over who your club might sign next and equally daunting to hear rumours of players you like who might be leaving. Call me a drama queen if you like but if you take the emotion out of being a fan then what are you left with?

What do we make of the fact that we are losing 12 players and there is almost no news of inbound ones a midst all sorts of news for other clubs; Gussie playing his cards close to hus chest?

The same as we make of it every year.

If Clifford is staying that would be fantastic.

Also if were in the market for locks and Launch is leaving Wasps surely wed be having a serious look at getting him.  Biggest mistake must have been releasing him from the academy.

It would be great if we could get Launch but it wasnt a big mistake to release him from the academy at the time.

I hope your sources are as reliable as usual. Although didn't they say it was a done deal last week?!

Dippy was saying at the pre-season dinner that they feel Launchbury is the one time the Academy staff made the wrong call about who to keep, but equally that it wasnt clear at the time what sort of player he could become.

According to Chris Foy in the Daily wail (yes I now it's the Wail, but Foy usually has good info) Launchbury still has a year left on his contract, so any club wanting to get him would have to pay a transfer fee, which counts against the salary cap. I'd rather we spent that extra money on a second player rather than bolstering Wasps finances.

I know the theory goes that agents will leak rumours to the press to up a player's worth and improve their bargaining position, but is there actually any truth in this? If we think that's what happens, then surely the clubs, who are far more in the know, would also know it's happening and so just ignore it.

I can't believe for instance that Quins would let their contract negotiations with Clifford be influenced by what Fissler or RIL might say. I'm sure the club knows who is after which of our players without an agent having to spread the rumours
