Think it might have been quashed now anyway. Although Jamie Gibson has see definitely left , seemingly without a club lined up.

It could be like when Wigan played Sale. 40mins of League and then swap to Union at half-time. Sale won the game Wigan played Bath in two separate games, one league, one union.

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

I don't think the Kpoku talk was ever anything more than that really. Isiekwe is a good addition to the squad, but we're not exactly short at lock or 6. A top-quality number 8 is what we really need, Harrison is doing a fantastic job there but he does need a week off occasionally.
