Nic Stirzaker signs for Saracens

On a three month deal. As mentioned before this seems a bit odd given Wiggy's early return to action. Only seems to reinforce the notion that he recovered much much earlier than expected and Nic was already here.

Anyway... Welcome Nic!

You never know with players whether they are carrying the odd injury after they return to playing that could flare up. Look at Billy last year carrying that shoulder injury. It's good to have cover given Henry's out.

I hadn't realised until reading that article on the Fish that Henry Taylor was out for the rest of the season! Not even sure what happened to him. Must have been serious as he's been out for months already IIRC.

Signing him seems sensible to reduce the mileage for Wiggy and Ben before April/May, however it's odd that the Rebels have allowed him to miss what is likely 6 matches for them. Although he was Captain last year and re-signed for this season they then signed two new 9s - Genia being one, who will likely start - so he's probably their third choice. Given he's an EQP it wouldn't surprise me if he's back in the AP in September for Sarries or another club.

Thought odd initially, but now seems to make sense. There is a lot more cover at 10, for example, than at nine.

There is a gentle suggestion of a Skelton-esque 'try before you buy' deal, which could see him return in a few months.

I merely question the 'St Albans is a cool place' line. Apart from that, you crack on mate!

I'm sure he'll enjoy the earthly delights of Batchwood Hall....
