Bismark is definitely not coming, he's asking for 500,000 a year, I have heard that a fellow South African might be coming, someone who already plays in the Premiership. I'd be pretty surprised if Mears does go. I think Dixie will be off and Batty might be too.

So was Hipkiss. If he doesn't want to play second fiddle and the club want to use his slice of the cap elsewhere, it's quite possible he'll be released. There have been rumours of the same with Classens.

Claassens is definitely staying, there were rumours about him going to Irish but that was just Fissler chat, Bath have never been interested in Jimmy Cowan either.

Not as far as I know. Still got this year next and hopefully more.

Now that's the kind of rumour I like - hasn't he got another year at his current club though?

Read yesterday that Morgan was playing in Wales prior to the agreement with England players playing abroad. Sounds like he's going to be in the 6 Nations squad anyway.

huzzah! his best position IMO, and would be his best fit in the future Bath backrow with Louw, Mercer and Ovens (and Skuse)

More noises of Morgan coming to Bath, I suppose it means that Taylor could move to second row. I'd still be surprised if we got him, I really don't think we need him.

Waren Fury signed as cover for McMillan - 3 month contract
IIRC this is the first confirmation we've had that McMillan is even injured - was speculation before; but I may have just forgotten/missed something.

Eastmond withdrew at some point before the game. Scott was on the bench, saw Eastmond limping onto the bus after. Might be a recurrence...

What we need is a big aggressive loose head to take some of the pressure of our tight heads.I believe in Wilson and Perenise we have the tight head side secure for a few years.
Catty and Beech are not going to put enough pressure on the opposition tight head,always giving them a secure scrum.
Caldwell is a great player in the line outs and the loose but we could do with another giant like ATtwood for shove add to this a hooker like the Kiwi above and we would then have a pack to compete with any.

I believe Mearsy is a possible for Montpellier but more likely Glasgow. Moody I think is fairly soon. Fearns I have no idea but hope its soon because he was every bit as impressive before he got injured as Louw has been since. Hopefully one day we will see both on the pitch together...and maybe even Moody in the squad too!!

yep, last week they were saying that Mears could have benched in an emergency, and he's not had cover brought in for the 6tN squad.
As he's in that EPS, he'll be desperate to get game time, and hoping like hell he can find form quickly; would be good for him if the team are turning a corner now.

I like your name, No Idea,
Do you think players would hang about waiting for a offer,the better players would be gone,the third and forth choices might hang about.
I would say the player are performing to a very good standard and it's just not clicking for them and they are not gelling YET.
We have problems, Caldwell playing really well, keeping out our best line out caller and Captain.Losing to much ball at line outs with our third choice hooker.
At this level of rugby you need all parts of your game working or you get beat.
Worcester was a prime example.the only reason they beat us was lack of ball from the line out,with our 5/6 choice hooker.
