Looks like we're getting a whole new set of followers https://twitter.com/RugbyRussia/status/1447591504776679428?s=20
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

Maybe it part of the plan,
1) get a Russian player in
2)let the fans watch the rugby on the Russian app for free
3) build a Russian fan base
4) sell club to Russian Oligarch

Given the history of the club, and some of the props we've had in the past, always a surprise we never 'pinched' a Georgian prop after one of our trips to France in the Heineken Cup or Bic-Biro.

There's loads of them in the French leagues, all down the pyramid.

Certainly looks like Kirill (sp?) will become a favourite after his last 2 matches.

When our Russian prop appeared in the pre-season games, I think he was referred to as a penalty machine - credit to the coaches for what they've done


You beat me to it Colin. I have to say that I was somewhat disappointed when he was being slated without ever having played a game for us. Shedwebbers having to eat humble pie for massive over reaction shock.......... :lol:

I forgot he was Georgian-born.
