My mate in Leeds messaged me to say that he has played about three times for Carnegie and looked totally unfit. I hope that some of our other promised international signings are more impressive than this announcement.
Odd. A prop who lees shire forum are nt raving about and another with a similar background To o Connell who has nt been able to break thru . Looks like champ development planning ... Imagine Tonga o Connell peri nese hall etc may all be on way ... Tray or perhaps to stay for the champ alongside gaston n bevington ?
Think we are gonna see a whole lot out of the door generally ...
Only real keepers for me: gaston as back up , tuohy as squad player, olly and lam , Mathewson as back up, sheedy for development , Hurrell woody and varndell until we find a winger who can tackle as well.
Rest sadly, will not be any help in the prem on bounce back. Imagine crane ll stay for the champ then be peripheral.
Big overhaul ahead...
Irish fan in peace, saw the Tongan prop last weekend when we played Leeds. Huge guy but as said above looked unfit and our academy prop certainly had the better of him. If Lam sorts out his fitness however he could be a handful
You are correct PeterB the same school as Jim Hamilton.
He went to Hartpury then Wuss academy and then Edinburgh. He has recently been on loan to London Scottish.
I recall that DR was a bit miffed when he moved to further his Scotland career, which clearly hasn't happened. He certainly had some potential, I wish him well.
