    Surely he has given them more details before asking them to sign a contract! Hopefully just click bait!!
    Giving them a deadline to sign is classic twiggy. Let's not forget the businessman we're dealing with.
    Unless they know more than we do (which is probably the case) giving them a deadline is pretty shit

    Given the origin of that story I'd wait and see what the reality is.

    Far out, I would not believe one second that Twiggy would have given them such a short deadline. The comp is not even official and organised and he surely would not risk his public figure. I would say that that journo has some very weak/poor sources....

    I would expect that the deadline is designed to coincide with the announcement of more structure today. Twiggy wouldn't be stupid enough to play hardball on contracts, he knows the drawcard names will just go elsewhere.

    I'll bet London to a brick that the players have been told a new contract will be tabled today which adds the detail missing from that one.

    This comp needs a (better) name. Anyone have ideas? Maybe we could put a poll with a few ..

    This won't necessarily be the name of the competition - remember Super 12 had an official working name of "International Provincial Championship" when it was launched.

    Presumably it could take the name of whoever sponsors it? Like the Aviva Premiership?

    I may be wrong...but I highly doubt it, because I'm an Alison

    You have to understand the readership of the Daily Telegraph and the people who Payten and Pandaram are writing for.

    The Sydney Morning Herald and/or the Fin Review are the preferred breakfast read on the North Shore and in the Eastern Suburbs. The Daily Telegraph is for the hoi-polloi in the rest of the greater Sydney area and country New South Wales.

    Most of the sporting section of the Daily Telegraph is devoted to Rugby League. For the majority of readers of the Daily Telegraph, Rugby Union is that game played by the toffs who live on the North Shore and/or who went to a GPS school.

    Payten and Pandaram are writing for a small readership which does not include a significant number of the "shakers and movers" of Rugby Union in NSW. Therefore, journalistic accuracy is not something that Payten and Pandaram need to be overly concerned about.
