Coventry are starting to look like Gloucester Mk II. Dawidiuk, Halaifonua, Narraway for a season. Walsh and Anthony Allen coaching. Think there's one or two others as well.

Goneva and Travis Ismail to Quins.


I hope that Purdy to Coventry is true. He's a good Premiership squad backup wing/13, who will thrive at Championship level as a first choice starter.


I do feel that had Purdy and Evans both known in January that they were going to be surplus to requirements that they may have managed to secure slightly better clubs than Coventry and Ospreys.


I thought ospreys was a good move for Evans, I can’t imagine him being a starter in many prem back rows. Surprised Purdy didn’t get another prem contract though.

If he does go to Cov, I think he'll benefit from working under their new defence coach....Anthony Allen.

Defence definitely is a work on, his strike rates must be pretty high, always seems to be able to find the line.

He May may not return to Paris but has signed a one year contract at Toulon.

Well, Parisse is coming back to France, apparently off to Toulon. A wonderful player but 35 years old now.

Talking of Coventry - their near neighbours are having a restructure and rumours of financial issues persist.

You have to understand here that the Observer is anti Wasps and Les Reid is the mouthpiece for SISU....any fake news he can spread amongst the knuckledragging minority amongst the generally sensible footy crowd is well received by his paymasters...

Without being disrespectful to the players concerned, this smacks of ‘we’ll recruit some saffers cos the rest have’ ....just doesn’t seem part of a planned team building drive. All Murphy and his team have done is drive out more prospects from the academy.

Worlds apart from where Johann is taking us.
