This article is an interesting read and raves about our recruitment, predicts us at 6th with a bigger push for something next year and I reckon I agree, thoughts?

A couple of points:
- because we've recruited well on paper doesn't mean the team / squad will automatically gel, it may, it may not, only time will tell.
- comment has already been passed on Ruan A and his performances as last season went on. Having a large number from the southern hemisphere means they need managing - the Premiership & Euro Cup rugby is as physically demanding as any, if not more so.
- other clubs have also recruited, no-one has stood still

Agreed.
The list shows other clubs have recruited well and or kept some good stability. We are stronger on paper with the like for like changes but to move forward we need to be. We will again need some time to bed new players in and the SA players will need some rest before they are up and running. If we can hold our home form and get some away wins then that would be a good result. I hope SW can be patient as it will still take time ....
