I really hope there’s no substance in the Charlie Matthews rumour, the quins fans certainly don’t rate him, and I’ve never thought he was any better than distinctly 4th/5th choice at quins

Afoa
Hibbard
Thrush?
Moriarty

Anyone else on the cards?

I've also heard Motu is leaving, not sure if that's really that much of a deal though considering the two youngsters coming through and the fact Motu is a bit unreliable from the lineout although he is a work horse.

Sopoago to Wasps.

Belly had said they were going to sign big at 10 and there it is.

Where to Cips, Japan for the big yen?

Perhaps Eddie Jones is looking at one of our players :D

Perhaps Conor O'Shea is calling in a favour from a previous employer when coming to speak to Jake.

There might be 11 in the back 5, but I think there's only 6 in the back 3 (Sharples, Woodward, Marshall, Halaifonua, Thornley & Purdy). That's very little cover, given it's covering 3 positions. I would suggest we need at least 1 more player to ensure we've got adequate cover - Banahan is that man.

And Hudson. I guess he might be academy? But performed well when called upon earlier this season.

One that'll actually keep them up this time, I think they're going to be quite a challenge next year.
