Yes good for the lad that at least he will be playing some rugby.
Astonishingly I thought he was the top 10 in the academy but has been eclipsed this year by young Heathcote.
Does that say something about how good Heathcote actually is?

IIRC Roberts was on the bench not Heathcote for the first few games of the season.

Heathcote is incredibly highly rated by both coaches and players. His age group coaches have all ear-marked him to be great as well. He's quite shy, in my opinion this is the one part of his game that Donald will help him on, certainly not kicking...

This time last year we'd had a flurry of re-signings prior to the January deadline where other clubs are free to talk to players. We've not had any so far this year and, granted there are few players who are likely to be retained, one notable exception is Bendy.

Is this silence an indication that Nick is off at the end of the season?

Abendanon got on very well with Meehan, very well indeed. He's been messed around positionally of late and his England prospects have gone a bit cold. It wouldn't surprise me if he left, but it would have awful if he did.

Do we have a up to date list of players out of contract including the Academy.
Would hate to lose Nick,you either love him or hate him,for me I love him.Never know quite what he's going to do but exciting to watch when on the top of his game.

With Bismark Du Plessis very likely to stay in SA now that Jon Smit is here, I think we might go after Schalk Brits. I get the impression that with Smit, Brits and George, Saracens might be a quality hooker heavy. We're undoubtedly going to go after the best, and Brits falls into that category.

Because unlike you, he sees potential in it. He'd probably be pretty well paid too. It's also a very nice place to live.

Have you got evidence that he sees potential in Bath or did you just make that up? He's probably pretty well paid at Saffacens as well and is under contract as far as I'm aware.

Try the first post of this thread - that's where I try to consolidate what gets put up here.


Edit: Batty just taken off the injured list.
Are we adding Williams (hamstring) or does it look the sort that will be fine within a week or two?

Whats the matter with Williams? He is always injured. If he cannot stay the match he must be toughend up or go!

Flats I am not concerned about as his contributions are very poor recently!

Ben gets injured because he is the sort of player that gives it his all.
He is one of the strongest impact player in the squad,
He is learning all the time and if Quins had him everyone would say he should be playing for England.

Just heard all good with Williams

Ben has had a few injuries and I expect every knock he thinks might put him out so best to come off.this is a mental thing,As he gets more game time these jiggles will become nothing and he will just run them off

Whether it is conditioning or just a lack of confidence or a mental thing, We must only play guys that are on top of their game and are fully confident and fit. Those who suffer these sort of 'niggles' need to gain strength in the gym and on the training field before starting a game, and could be used as impact players to help build confidence and fitness if that is the problem.

I wish ALL Bath players well but we are in a mess and need only the fittest on the park at the moment and help build some team spirit and familiarity between the team.

Bob, when we only have 23/24 who are match fit (ish) then we can't really be picky. Hence why Taylor was carrying an injury at Leinster, hence why Williams wasn't fully fit at Northampton.

What has happened to Chris Biller? Granted he didn't set the game alight when he appeared just after his signing but is he injured now?

Surely not out of contract already? If not it seems odd to have signed him and then not even have him on the bench.

Sorry if this has been explained elsewhere, it's just that there seems no mention of him anywhere, now?

Mearsy may well go to Glaws as they have been talking about it on Shedweb for some time. It would be a great shame but SIM always likes big physical hookers and Webber is a Wasp so knows SIM. Could be true but I would much prefer a SH hooker like Rismark and if Mearsy has got wind of such talk, that is the reason why he is going more than anything else!

As much as I want to improve our squad I also feel Mearsy has been exceptionally loyal and a good servant and would like him to become our back-up/ alternative starting hooker with Bismark!!! Must be getting soft in my old age!!!
