suggestion on twitter that contracts signed etc.
Why would we sign Pat Richards?
I hope it isn't. Do we really want a 30yr old who hasn't played Union before (or at least not at a high level)?
Great league player, no doubt, but I'd hope we'd be looking at a quality Union player, rather than taking a chance on Richards.
Still got year(s?) on his contract at the Rebels.
Guys - back on planet earth. We wont be attracting the likes of Beale and O'Connor - sorry that's hilarious. It will be someone outside the international set up. The Saints board think Cameron Shepherd, despite signing for them, is in talks with another prem club and has yet to report to pre season at the Saints.

Thatd be dirty tactics wouldn't it?
makes some sense if its shepherd as to why there are significant rumours that things are signed yet nothing released by the club. could they be trying to agree compo with saints?
only thing I would say is that dimes hasn't often tried to sign players with questionable fitness records and a number of the players he released at the end of 2010 seemed to be released on the back of injury issues (Ormsby, Cox spring to mind and CJ at the later end of his Sale career could have been included in that).
also note the Shepherd was born in UK and has dual citizenship.
So it appears Saints have pulled out of the Shepherd deal. If it turns out Sale are in for him then it begs the question what do we see that they don't?
Sale ignore fitness worries to sign Shepherd
