Marquee Signings

Marquee Signings

With the loss of both of our marquee signing in John Afoa and Jeremy Thrush, who will be our new ones?

I wonder if Jaco Kriell may be one of them (although they didn't say as such).
Danny Cipriani can't be a marquee signing as he has come from another premiership club.

I'd be surprised if Kriel was one of them. Assuming we've signed Grobler, but are yet to announce, I suspect he may be one. Although it would seem odd, if it is true that we agreed to sign him a long time ago - as it would suggest management knew all that time ago that Thrush would not be staying. Though I suppose it is perfectly possible they made that decision a long time ago. To summarise, it is a mystery to me. Could be RJVR or Dreyer?

I’m sure Kriel was originally off to Japan so wouldn’t be surprised if he is a marquee signing. Hopefully a new prop will be the other.

If we are signing Mostert and RJVR I'd imagine one or both would be a marquee player. If our prop is as Andy Deacon suggests, JCW then like Cips he can't be one.

It will just be the two highest earning qualifying players, whoever they may be.

I'm not sure RVJR would qualify as he plays for Sale.

He was on a three month loan, we've technically signed him from the Lions I think. Assuming we have signed him of course.

Can someone link me to the JCW rumour?

It was speculation by Andy Deacon, ex Gloucester tighthead, in his latest column on Gloucestershire Live.

Doesn't the ruling on marquee signings also state that the player concerned cannot have played in the premiership for at least a year, if so than this must discount RJVR.
