Tomane needs to lose a load of weight


not really, bulking up is important for transition from wing to centre.. tomane and speight were a great pair of wings for the Bumboys but since he left, Speight has lost his form, Tomane plays decent rugby up north, he could be very useful in the remaining games..


Have you seen Tim Bateman?


is he a multi capped all black?


Quite a few for the Maori and Crusaders now, which is probably good enough to beat the Wallabies much of the time.

Cokanasiga to Bath not actually confirmed yet. Likely, but could actually end up being a loan deal.

Would hope we're in for Eastmond. We're a bit short at centre and he ticks the boxes - EQP, good age, from the area and rugby league experience (important given our attack structure).
Him and Sam James could form a really exciting partnership IMO :thumbup:

Symons going anywhere or just delisted?

He'd be welcome back at the Chiefs, especially if Bird is flying the coop.

He's a better FB than 10 to be honest. He's decent though, certainly one of our better performers.

Fair few would have been leaving as normal turnover. But others leaving as a result of relegation

Shame one of the best wingers of the last 10 years, Napolioni Nalaga didn't get much game time with LI, i hope he leaves too and joins a Premiership club...maybe Saints, they could use 2 large wings (Naiyaravoro joining them too)

Certainly a shame, but it was injury related and doubt he'll have too many takers for the moment. Broke his arm at the start of the season, managed to get an infection in the arm that kept him out for the rest of the season and has apparently just had another operation on it.

Wasps confirm signing of a bunch of Championship players:

Joe Atkinson - 26, openside flank (London Scottish)
Michael Le Bourgeois - 27, utility back, mostly centre and league's player of the season, I think (Bedford)
Ben Morris - 26, backrow, some lock (Nottingham)
Ross Neal - 22, centre (London Scottish)
Billy Searle - 22, fly half (Bristol)

From the vid in this, Neal seems like a decent prospect. Big lad, decent pace for his size. Atkinson looks like he'd take over nicely for Thompson, Morris with a bit more beef, but mobile too.

I wish Premiership teams would concentrate on signing championship players and strengthening the ties with championship clubs. I'm hopeful Irish regret letting Neal sign for Scottish.
