Every season, we tend to find 1 or 2 positions that are lacking a bit of SiD / quality. If we get an injury or 2, it really impacts our ability to compete. Last season it was centres and hooker. Next season, I think it'll be second row.

My main concern is to do with the injury dispensation fund, as I think we've used a chunk of it to sign Harris as a replacement for Trinder. If we lose Slater or GG early on, we might not have the funds to sign a replacement.

I wouldn’t under-estimate Craig and Linsell. Both are big lads and Craig in particular seems ready

Looks like we'll have Thorley and VRR for the start of the season,

Heinz (above of Robson) and Cipriani have been retained by England

Go well lads

EJ normally only has 2 SHs in his squads and I don't expect that to change. I feel it's likely he'll take Youngs and Spencer whilst Heinz will be kept on standby as injury cover.

Can’t have this thread languishing at the bottom of the page - Joe Worsley to Georgia. Sonny Bill Williams linked with Pau.

I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

It appears that Bastareaud turned down Munster. Lyon favourites to sign him now.
