According to the Chron:

Freuan - to be announced by Edinburgh as a signing in the next few days

Grant - we are trying to keep him

Marfo - no contract offer

Brooker - no contract offer

Charles - no contract offer

Sisi - leaving, suggested he has an offer from another club but not yet announced

Mention also made of the expiry of current contracts for Guy Mercer and Jeff Williams in the coming months.

If that turns out to be correct, I'd say we are right in letting those who are reported as going, go. I personaly like Grant, so think trying to keep him is a good idea.

I mentioned this else where but Dan Evans confirmed that Guy Mercer has signed a new deal but it just hasn't been announced publicly.

he obviously has no ambition to play regular rugby which I find a little odd. Also I would much rather see an up and coming youngster on the books rather than Guy who has proven that he is not up to premiership standard.

I don't think that this is accurate? It wasn't mentioned in the latest Chron report only that he was out of contract. Besides which, surely if the club captain extends it would be all over the website?

A relative of a player accidentally corrected that article on Facebook saying, "I thought Guy Mercer had already signed up" and Dan said yes but that isn't public knowledge.

Perhaps it is not public knowledge yet as there are discussions to replace him as Club Captain and they will announce the two together?? Like a 'Guy Mercer steps down as Club Captain but signs a new contract to remain at the club' sort of thing...

Please be Attwood for Capitano.

Love it! I think that its strange that we would announce some contracts but not our club captain...

Bath rugby are pretty useless at announcing signings, M. Ford said on radio that we had signed Kahn about a month before it was officially announced.

In respect of new signings, we've had our fingers burned on more than one occasion by announcing signings before the ink was dry.

There was a proper cockup with Mark Connors in the early 2000's when it was all announced, and then something went wrong and it turned acrimonious; then there was Duncan Bell, who we were told was signing from Pontypridd only for them to say he had to see out the final year of his contract. Just as I thought we were becoming a little more professional, along comes Kyle Eastmond's contract embuggerence!

Would love to see Charles given a year to properly see what he can do.

Be more than happy with him, Batty, Dunn and Walker. Unless we've got a superstar signing up our sleeves, I think that lot would have a great battle amongst themselves for the starting berth

+1 tons of depth and a mixture of experience and youth

Does anyone know why on Earth Brooker was starting ahead of Charles? Anyone? Bueller?

Could it be to do with the number of foreign players in the squad? Although I can't think who else wouldn't be covered under EU/Kolpac rules, Fruean maybe, but thought you could have two. Could also be to get our average English qualified player number up, but hard to believe that is a problem for us.
