Article in today's Britsol Evening Post on Ovens. Bath have given assurances that he will be available to Bristol for the whole of there playoff period, clearly shows that we expect to have enough depth in the backrow for the rest of the season without him.
[www.thisisbristol.co.uk]

Good luck to him. I couldn't understand why they didn't bring him on earlier against Glaws. I minute from the end hardly sends him a message he will get game time next season! Really hope we don't lose him.

Not a rumour as I have no reason to believe there is any truth behind it.

But, assuming Matt Carraro is off to Montpellier then Jonathan Davies' contract is expiring this summer. He would be a nice signing. Apparently Northampton are after him.

Although, he would be away for large periods of the season with Wales.

With Barkley, Hipkiss, Williams and Banahan options at 12 and 13 I wouldnt be concerned about having an international player sign who was going to be away for chunks of the season, he would have to be top top player though, otherwise I wouldnt see the point of adding to the centres from outside.

Are Saints looking at Davies as a 12? As Pisi isnt going to be displaced from the team easily.

Northampton are very close to getting Davies, they've offered him 200k. With Downey and Clarke going, they really need a centre.

Why would Carraro go to France a year before the end of his contract!? He is likely to go back to Australia to have another crack at Super Rugby, but he'll be with Bath next season, I'm certain of it.

I take this back, I think it's bad news...

confused - what's going on

we don't want J.Davies IMHO, I think he would not be value for money, personally I would rather have Williams in the starting role as a direct ball runner.

I was with a group this week to whom Nick Blofield spoke and I asked him about Josh.
He said he was fairly confident that Josh would be a Bath player next season

Josh will be a Bath player next season, had we signed Morgan this off season, he wouldn't have signed, but I think we're looking at getting Morgan next summer.

That makes sense Marshie as Taylor will be looking to retire probably.

How ever I think it will be too late as Glaws need to replace Narraway earlier and have the dosh to do it! Hope i am wrong - again!

That's the crux of it Bob, Gloucester have offered the Scarlets a take-it-or-leave-it offer, and no news is good news for Bath. I don't think Taylor will retire at the end of next season, he's 32 now and I think he'll probably sign a one year extension at the end of next season. He's missed so much rugby through injury that he's probably got quite a lot left in the tank. He certainly plays like he does, he's an absolute warrior.

Agreed with that, though Moody's unlikely to continue; and Beattie likely to leave this year, unless he finally decides (too little too late) that lock is his position

Very true marshie10, didn't see a lot of him yesterday - a bit like Taylor, which meant that they were doing stuff in those dark places that go unseen.

Nick abendanon has just tweeted that he has just started running rehab, im no expert but id guess he'd be back in 2 to 3 weeks then. Sadly for him that would mean in time for Leicesters trip and getting smashed by atleast one Tuilagi like last year!

Eastmond
Williams
Hipkiss (hopefully his learning to pass rehab has been a success)

Williams is back into full training. Hipkiss was the 24th man against Exeter, Eastmond is 3 weeks away and Donald is similar.

Matt Keyte,Offy said on loan to Bristol but doesn't seem to be playing,recently played I believe for English students and was scrum half at England 18s a year before Cookie,so why did we sign Fury?
Tom Baldwin a back row player is on loan at Chippenham I believe anyone watch them and if so how is he doing?
Paul Roberts, England students is starting for Plymouth each week,would be interested if anyone knows how he's getting on.

Just got a tweet from James O'Connor saying he's 100% going to come and play in the NH, I'm going to make sure that's at Bath. Oh yes!!

9. Cook
10. Heathcote
11. Eastmond
12. O'Connor
13. Williams
14. Banahan
15. Abendanon

If Carlsberg did Bath back lines in 4-5 years time...

It would only include Banahan if it were pi$$ed out of its tree, and is missing Israel Dagg. Aaron Smith at 9 as well on current performance as well.
Are you happy to wait 4-5 years?
You sound like SIM's PR gopher.

DBF, I think Eastmond could go 12 but I don't want to waste O'Connor. And I like the presence of Williams in the centres.

Stuart, indeed he did. He said that he's 100% keen to play up here, but has many things to do in Aus first. I'd guess winning the Super 15 and playing the Lions are the two main ones. But when he comes North, he's exactly the sort of player Bruce Craig will go after.

Only France will afford JOC, or Japan as they prepare for RWC 2019. As much as I'd be happy to pay extra money to see him play for Bath I don't think a capped system like that of PR will ever afford his fees.

Bry, once the capacity is increased, he will need to have big names to fill it. Despite the fact it's only being increased to 17,000 - O'Connor would help boost that. I can't imagine O'Connor would demand much more that 300,000, so it would probably be worth it.
