Anyone else on the cards?


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.


Yep, I forgot about Hudson. So 7 incumbent with one addition for next season. 8 players covering 3 positions seems about right, particularly if we're going to be playing Champions Cup rugby next season. I think the only player who is OOC in that group is Halaifonua.

I was also wondering about Matt Scott's future. He's not had a lot of game or bench time recently, despite being fit and available. Perhaps someone will know more?

Surprised nothing more has been made about Rohan Janse Van Rensburg. He's only on loan at Sale until next month and hasn't signed with them for next year. Ex of the Lions and apparently close with Ackers Junior (and senior!). I'm sure we have been previously linked with him. Would be a great signing and even better to snatch him from under the noses of Sale.

Also a story on Codero to Tigers short term, who is another we've been linked with.

I may be imagining it, but I thought I read/heard Matthews to Exeter some time ago?

...And, consequently, Munster interested in signing Cordero.

I wouldn't be too fussed about signing either Barrow or Matthews. Both leak penalties, Matthews is lightweight and Barrow, for whatever reason, cannot get into a team that whose weakest part is the second row.
