There you go Ober0n, the answer to our scrum half problem: if in doubt POACH!

What say you Glaws fans? Is he any good?

Can't believe it!!

Nothing against this guy BUT we cannot go on poaching players around.

I'm really sick and tired of this way of doing things.

And apparently I'm not the only one given the turnout in Rome for the Wales game.

Please name another scrum half who could be called up to the National team at such short notice?

He's fine, got nothing particularly eye catching about him - serviceable pass, okay kicking game, decent pace, defends okay

Military medium is the way I'd describe him - probably why he never got a look in for England (and the fact he couldn't nail down a starting spot at Glaws)

Decent pass but he’s very very slow, only really getting game time at Gloucester due to injuries elsewhere. I wouldn’t have thought he’s anywhere near good enough for international rugby.

Ah could be worse, you could be Munster.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

However, if he's good then it is a good poach, our depth at scrum-half is well known

He might have done, Sisi was definitely on the bench in the final and the starting 9 was Saints' Alex Day, can't recall who was the 9 on the bench though

Sisi has been playing pretty well in the 6N so far. I hope this Braley can follow the same path.
