As usual, no indication whether two contracted players have left for a transfer fee, or whether we've paid them to leave.

Sounds like they've both left on frees to get them off the cap and sign elsewhere.

Tierney is a pretty good winger, the right decision though. At his age he needs to be somewhere where he is first choice

Gregson has tweeted saying it’s pretty much due to playing time.

A shame we can’t guarantee him a bunch of games next year when he showed good promise last year in the halves and second row.

Tierney I think we just wish well and thank him for his efforts. He needs to play and there is little chance of that here.

In regards to Gregson, I think I'd have liked to see more of him before we let him go. He's clearly got some talent but he's been unlucky with injuries.

Good luck to both of them.

What a lifestyle for Tierney! Getting paid a good wage to play in the South of France.
Don’t blame him whatsoever.

I never really saw much in Gregson that said he was ever going to be an automatic choice, I know I will be in the majority, he just never seemed that good in any particular area, he could just do the basics in several if them.

Tierney was just too far down the pecking order, his brain darts just seemed to outweigh his good stuff. If Naverette goes and FPN, that frees up some space.

Dammit.

Was hoping with Tierney recently signing iL may have been open to an offer for either marshall or maybe manfredi to free up space!!
