Here are a couple of quotes from Tigers fans, they have been lifted from a discussion on the ERE:
"Sam will never let you down. Sorry to see him go but this is what happens when you have a salary cap."
"Sam's meant to be on very good money at Tigers which is why we've kept the "cheaper" Staunton as cover for Toby Flood. Sam is a good reliable player who will slot in at 10, 12 or 15 and not let you down. Great defensive organiser on the pitch too. More sorry to see him leave than Lewis Moody."
