Time to focus on players who are here and want to be part of our future.

I'm not sure it's a great statement but at least it shows them trying to get in control of the agenda at last.

My guess is that they held out for a few days hoping to be able to make a definite statement about Taufua as well.
But, clearly that still ongoing, so opted to put this out and at least be definitive about the five. "will no longer be playing for the club."

Hard to read re: Taufua if no news yet is good news. I guess his agent has had a couple of extra weeks to see if they can sort out a better deal for him elsewhere.

But the statement finally confirming Manuís departure could just mean that there might be a little more financial wriggle room in the Taufua negotiations? Fingers crossed, anyway, heís the one Iíd be most upset to lose.

How would that work with the rest of the squad who weren't given such latitude?

Yeh Taufua needs to take the 25% reduction like the rest otherwise GM will have a mutiny on his hands. I'm sure his agent has been asking French clubs what they can offer before he makes a decision.
