And to be fair you've consistently criticised him along with all other England players (Heinz excepted).

You wouldn’t want our club to sign the current starting B&I Lions and England TH, who was (arguably) one of England’s best players in the tournament? I would argue he’s probably the best TH in the World.

Needs to be a big news release tomorrow now to cheer me up. Is that 2 from 11 or something now?

Signing a prop wont win games like that one today, there's plenty of other things wrong at the moment.
The only problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you have finished.

Camel, your estimation of Sinckler is a tad over the top. Our props we already have are good enough, don’t believe everything you read in the Sun. :lol: :lol:

I respect your opinion, but don’t agree and neither does Gatland or Jones, both of whom have selected him as first choice for the Lions and England in the last 2 years.

Whilst I think we’ve got decent options at prop, none of them are World class. If we want to be in a position whereby we regularly competing in the top 4, then we need some better players in such pivotal positions.

A prop and 2nd row would be nice.

Val and Dreyer are very good but I doubt we’ll really see Dreyer. Sinckler is on another level though and would be an incredible signing, just can’t see it happening.

Balmain and Hoeneck look a shadow of themselves at the moment.

I’m with you on this 1 Camel. Sinkler is class. Definitely the type of player we should be looking to sign. However, I don’t think he is coming to Gloucester

They certainly haven’t yet reached the highs of last season. I’ve heard that neither came back in great shape to preseason. With that in mind, it looks like the coaches should’ve given them gametime in the prem cup to get their fitness levels back to where they need to be. To me, they still look unfit.
