He'd be a great scrum-half, always with a permanent put-up expression with his arms wide gesturing to the ref.

Are we sure Chris Cook isn't Jesus? Is there a silent 't' in there?

I don't think Jesus is the signing for us. He has never been much of a rugby player in the past as he only has 12 mates - not enough for a side. Maybe a 7's specialist?

Also heard he has priors in wearing illegal headgear and gets PTSD when he sees tall posts so not sure he'd be worth fitting into the wage cap in my honest opinion...

I just looked at the calendar, its the 10th of August!

Various people have mentioned dates regarding international rugb calendars, can we still assume that there will be announcements or is that looking unlikely now? When do we give up and make the best of what we have?

TB quoted in the Chronicle this morning that he is confident of more signings (Plural) prior to season kicking off.

Sounds promising....He did rule out Bryan Habana who has been recently mentioned - although personally I could not see why we needed another wing unless MB is going to be switched permanently to centre!!!

What price the Romano rumour started by Malco being right - despite some of the scepticism shown around supporters.

Fingers crossed for news soon.

It really depends no what positions we sign them. I really would be pretty disappointed if we signed another senior 10. I think we're pretty well in other positions as well. Talk about signing wings and second rows leaves me a bit flat as, good as they may be, that's why we've not got a 12 or 3.

Dane Haylett-Petty will move elsewhere to continue his Wallabies career you'd guess.
Pek Cowan can play loose and tighthead prop and has Wallabies experience.
Bill Meakes could be an option at 12 but on the basis he left Gloucester to go back and compete for a Wallabies shirt and has just been included in their wider training squad will likely look to move to another Australian franchise.

Can't really see anyone else in their squad worth taking otherwise tbh!!

Someone suggested on one of the threads that we sign CP on a one year contract prior to him joining Bristol ala Wasps. I thought no way, fantasy however, just seen Ulster poised to sign CL from Austrslia who can cover FH, Cemtre, Wing or FB.

So maybe there maybe a little hope what a signing that would be!!!! Still believe pretty improbable but more possible now.

BathMatt you are right but I only said it was a little more possible than fantasy especially if they expect PJ to be found not guilty. That Ulster back line just got a
little bit special what a signing.

I fully expect signings to come as already stated from WF particularly with a bit of inside info from BT as to who is a good fit..

Still hope for Luke Romano but Dan Evans quoted in webchat unlikely and he thinks signings will be in the back line and possible TH prop.

Shaun Knight injured hopefully nothing serious but pulled from team yesterday with a tweaked neck.

SOS the thought of facing Tigers with KPN as starting TH and an academy player on bench sends shivers down my spine and I imagine the poor hooker who is selected for to play.

Tigers will be loving this!! We desperately need decent cover at TH until HT and ML are fit, anyone know Richard Lee's phone number??

Henry Thomas: “The aim is to make a pre-season game or two," he told the Chronicle. "It will be the latter pre-season games (the end of August).

Hopefully this is still the case, so he should get a run out next week or the one after.

I thought TB stated HT not going to be available until end of September and ML struggling to be fit for start of season may be wrong.

I see Daniel Evans in the webchat last week mentioned he suspects with the injury to Craig Mitchell's injury that TB will be looking for another TH which kind of supports he does not expect either of his top 2 THs being available.

The other problem is no one knows how HT is going to go after such a serious injury, psychologically he is going to have doubts himself.

Not overly convinced Lealiifano is that remarkable a signing for Ulster Ali! Paddy Jackson has to be one of the best 10's in the Pro14 and CL has just returned to playing rugby at all - which by the way is a great comeback story!

I don't think signing anyone for a year helps us tbh and as Wasps have shown over the last 2 years, although it helps with the highlight reels it doesn't win you anything further having a different star come and go each year! Especially if they happen to get injured and miss pivotal games or part of the season like Kurtley Beale for them last year!

It looks as if the story was premature anyway:

Lealiifano say he is "exploring options" in Australia's National Rugby Championship and playing abroad.

Addressing the Ulster rumours, he said: "Nothing has been locked away yet - it is something in the pipeline."

I had not realised the severity of the Paddy Jackson allegations! I hope for his sake it is all a large misfortune of timing/wrong place at the wrong time and not as serious as the allegations suggest!

Would be a sad end to his career just as he was about to come into his prime as a 10 and with Sexton on the decline too you'd have thought he was next in line for the Irish 10 shirt (although Joey Carbery is a more than excellent option)

About 12 years too late to rue that decision! I am actually optimistic that when we have Lahiff, Thomas and Knight all fit at the same time we will have good competition and options at 3 tbh.

It is more the fact that we have not have 3 fit good options at any one time in the last couple of years! Perhaps the strain will be taken off our TH's though with Auterac back fit and destroying the other side of the scrum?

Auterac is looking absolutely monstrous at the moment and I heard somewhere that he's such an athlete he does his fitness sessions with the backs..? Don't know if I've been had on there or not... And Lahiff has an ridiculous six-pack which is quite frankly silly considering his porp nature... we don't lack fitness in that sense that's for sure, merely luck with injuries. The latter does make a huge huge difference!

I believe Auterac began his rugby as a centre which explains his good running lines and soft hands in open play. He is still v young for a prop and I worry his body is taking to much to soon. Flats talked about his experience in this regard and his persistent shoulder problems in later years. I hope he is used wisely this season...

Well in an ideal world we could rotate Auterac and Catt as starters and allow Obano experiences off the bench so that he isn't so green. The problem is that both Catt and Auterac have been unlucky with injuries meaning that when one gets crocked the other carries the team for that position for a while and it then increases their chances of getting injured down the line!

I am hoping Obano will come on further with more gametime this year and we will then have 3 strong options at LH to pick from who can all play a bit as well as scrummage!

Now if we just brought in one more TH option we would have some good stock in the front row with Lahiff able to move either side to cover injuries if required!

Auterac looked to me like he went into tackles with his head held too high. Especially when carrying the ball. It's odd because he doesn't really offload either. Thomas was much more, head down and bulldoze through.

Well if he started off in the backs he would be more of a heads up player so that would explain it perhaps.

Yeah, i thought that but then the lack of passing or offloads kind of negates it.
Also, i'm not sure being as back means you don't know how to carry a ball into contact.
Maybe he's just not very good at it and will hopefully improve.
Would be great to have a prop who can carry the ball like Tom Dunn.

I've seen Auterac offload numerous times. In fact at Welford Road a couple of seasons back he and Thomas were guilty of trying to overplay the ball and not just take the tackle beyond the gainline so we could win quick front foot ball. Several times they ended up fluffing the offload or taking one pass too many. They weren't the only ones of course, something of a feature that afternoon.

Auterac should base his game on Mako. Offloading isn't as important as being able to play a receiver role who can pull the ball back for the second wave of the attack.

You read it here first. Bath's inside centre conundrum is about to be solved with the signing of Ben Te'o. International commitments aside, I'm delighted with that fit. I thought he was exceptional in NZ for the Lions and him and JJ could be outstanding together IMO.

Has anyone got any genuine ideas on the 2 backs we're after?

I know lots of us are assuming they're SH players.

If so then i believe (as someone else pointed out) that the NZ competitions finish in October sometime.

Any ideas when the SA/Ozzie/Arg leagues finish?

Surely if they were NH players we would have sorted it by now or is it common for signings to be made this close to the season from British/Irish/French clubs?



I probably don't know what i'm talking about.

Fissler is, of course, being an obnoxious tool about it, but this does seem highly unlikely.

Not a very engaging individual who implied that we all swallowed this story hook, line & sinker which is rubbish.

Is it me or does he look like the offspring of the kinder egg man and Gregg Wallace from masterchef?

The problem with Auterac's tacking having watched him is that he is trying to make an earth shattering hit every time, as such he is often putting his weight all forward throwing his head into the opposition and this means he has taken too many concussions.
So is the Teo thing a spoof?? he was very disappointed and unhappy at Worcester last season and playing with JJ could make then a nail on partnership for Eddie Jones.

Doesn't seem outrageous given Teo's comments last year and being ambitious.

Who knows!! Stranger things have happened, remember people on this site last year saying similar things about GF going to Tigers.

Does anyone actually pay any attention to Fissler, he seems to have zero knowledge of rugby.

I never quite understand why people would make stuff like this up? I'm saying they don't, they clearly do. Loneliness?

Rumour probably started by an attention seeker with low intelligence.

Not overly convinced Lealiifano is that remarkable a signing for Ulster Ali! Paddy Jackson has to be one of the best 10's in the Pro14 and CL has just returned to playing rugby at all - which by the way is a great comeback story!

I see that Brett Herron played at FH for their friendly against Wasps a couple of days ago. He could have quite a bit of pressure on him this season it will be interesting to see if he is ready.

BM53 - on the same theme, I watched Daniel Bowden v Stephen Donald last night. 1 at standoff 1 at inside centre. Two that got away - (joke)? The latter came out the victor, where he helped neutralise George Moala and Mr Fekitoa.

That Bowden played a game and didn't get injured before or during it has to be an improvement for him irrespective of how he played? The guy has been ridiculously unlucky.

Good to hear that Beaver is still going strong at 34...

Rich coming from you.

Fissler is an obnoxious prat, but he (or should I say his sources) are right more often than not.

I don't have / can't work twitter but it looks like Fissler was apologising last night for being stressed out hence sharp in response?

(Agree with both thoughts that he is a tool but that he does seem to hear about the rugby gossip a few days before others in the public domain)

Don't see the value of Twitter, just seems to cause people problems with comments made without giving any time to think

He semi apologised to one person, but his (over) reaction was fairly in keeping with standard behaviour. He's got the ego of Stephen Jones without even the circulation to back it up?

Are we going to hear no more from dumbcara regarding his rumour or is he just waiting for it to be confirmed on the one hand or just can't stop laughing at having rattled our cages on the other (Sm31)

Maybe he's off down the cashpoint drawing out his £1k? Looking back I can't see anyone who believed it so not sure that there was too much cage rattling.
