Can we rename this thread "Bod's list of every signing in the Northern Hemisphere"?

It's very interesting Bod, but this thread once used to be about who WE were going to sign!

Another post about me! What proportion of your posts are just responses to me and nothing to do with Bath Rugby I wonder? I must do the stats...

We ain't signing anyone much has been the message all along I believe, certainly nothing like Gethin Jenkins, Lydiate, Rene Ranger etc.

Ere needs therefore a "who we're not signing and would never have a snowball in hell's chance of getting to the Rec" thread.

Keep an eye on what's going on about you, otherwise if you don't you'll soon be out of the game.

I'm sure we'll have a few more - the loss of Moody and Cararro wasn't factored in to those original projections of how many we'd get.

It's a fair bet that recruitment has stalled until we get a new head coach though.

It does seem a bit of a mess though with 2 SIM signings and the possiblity of a few more signings by the new coach when he's appointed and depending on who's available by the point they get around to making an appointment. We haven't even managed to engage in transition yet let alone upward progress.

Right, because you're not totally obsessed by Bod, not to mention so wound up by his posting habits? Stalking you? I find you a tedious anal bore, someone who has to have the last word and/or correct people if their post doesn't 100% line up with your thinking, stats or warped view of rugby union. You can't let things go, ever, which is a problem when you get so easily wound up online, as you so clearly do.

Guys, I don't tend to go on ERE much and you are just proving why.

The thread is about new signings, not about bickering and willy waving. This is incredibly dull and will, and probably has, put a lot of people off ERE.

Stick to topic.

It would be interesting to know if their first reaction to being signed from Doncaster was "What a nice and pleasant City Exeter is to come and live in", - before any mention of playing for the club?

(Just substitute Bath for Exeter and that's just about what a lot of our recruits come out with.)

Mallett + Catt might work well, but I think Cheika plus Wayne Smith would nail it!
Well.........that's my take.
Cheika is just a bit more up to speed with European Club rugby , and Saafas and ANZACs don't mix!

When was the last time Bath signed a Championship player? Or is it against club policy to scout that division?

Queens recruit a Botica

Why is it that I feel Bath miss out on these kind of shrewd signings - 3 years residency and it's sorted! (Does his year in France count as European based? Anyone know how that works?)

Not 100% certain Bod, but I think Botica already has a UK passport; even better for Quins if true.
