Was an understated tweet from the club that quickly got whipped into a frenzy. Good news but not big news.

It is odd to be disappointed by the announcement of Joe Simpson extending. It is great news, he’s been a fantastic signing. But I wouldn’t say it was BIG news exactly. I probably need to calm down in future and not get my hopes up too high. It is hard not to though with some of the rumours floating around.

The club suggested there would be news this morning and there has been. Good news I think. Its Shedweb as per usual that turn it into Sinckler and/or The Beast etc
The only problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you have finished.

Great news, but currently means we will have 2 Scrum halves 30+ for the next 2 seasons, If Braley is off to Italy where does the number 3 come from? Chapman looks decent but is a long way off being Prem/Euro ready.

Also this would suggest that Simpson left Wasps for a one year deal?! or a 1+1 that we've been very quick to snap up.

I think the Marketing Dept need to re-asses the meaning of BIG news. It was good news but nowhere close to Big news.

Not the first time either. Really didn’t require a big teaser the day before, one 15 minutes before would have sufficed. Obviously it’s great news, but with the rumours circling it was only going to set the fans up for disappointment.
