“Money too tight” – Newcastle Falcons release four of their major stars

#2. Luther Burrell

Richards ended a spell of uncertainty that lasted around six weeks before the end of last season by informing Burrell that money was too tight. 

“We were in April time,” Burrell revealed to The Telegraph. “There were only a handful of games left on this artificial pitch at Newcastle and I had all of this craziness running through my mind.

“I’ve never gone into a game thinking: ‘Don’t get injured’. It was a really difficult hurdle because it could have ruled me out or even cut down what money I could get if someone were to come in for me.”
