[www.telegraph.co.uk]

Telegraph rate him as the best non-All Black 2nd row in the Championship. Internet also says most teams in the NH are chasing him.

I guess he's our fall back if we fail to bring in Whitelock or Retallick ><

I've noticed him playing for South Africa and the Lions and he's very good for sure.

Also linked with Glaws. That's plausible given their Saffer connection

EQP is what we should be exploring

Ackerman was his DOR at Lions so if he liked and rated him as a DOR then Glaws would seem favourite.

Do we need another lock? We have quite a few and of decent quality. More concerned about props at the moment as I'm not sure we have the depth for the prem.

Agents just putting the Bristol name in the mix to push up money and interest. Believe what you see not what you read imo.



My glass is again full now bring on the rugby.

Yes but he's a class above. He's also a skillful player with good hands, fitness and speed - which would fit brilliantly with the PT game plan. There was a discussion on Scarlets here in the summer and to me and others the reason they have done so well in the last 9 months is primarily due to the ball playing skills of their forwards. yes they have great backs but these days having 7 skillful ball players Is not enough - and that is why Scarlets won the pro 14 and why New Zealand are the best team in the world.

Remember, if we do go up we will be playing teams with the likes of maro, kruis, launchbury, etc etc at lock. We will need strengthening at prop and lock and possibly in my view at scrum half

Before Pat Lam arrived some of our locks were half way through contracts.so some of our locks have a future contract some don't.
