Another hooker to Wasps
01 November, 2017 14:41
Nathan Charles is off, following Gabriel Oghre.

Do we have enough with Dunn, Walker, Batty and VV?

We haven't seen him loads, but the impression on COML has been almost universally favourable.

However, I wonder if the AP attrition rate is going to see the creation of a pool of players who are drafted to where they are most needed for a few months, a bit like supply teachers.

This is a tragedy as Nathan has shown in his few opportunities, he has the talent and physical attributes to make it at the highest level. Unlike VV who has done diddly squat...

A tragedy? We have Walker, Dunn and Batty ahead of him. So I wouldn't class losing your fourth choice hooker as a tragedy.

He's a good player. Played well when he's come on for twenty minutes or so, but if he was still Aussie quality our coaches would've picked him to play. Truth is, he's sat behind Dunn and Walker all year.

Sure he'll be a fine squad man at Wasps.

Good to see BoB being as respectful as ever.
Has Charles actually been on our payroll this season? Hasn't he been training with us to keep him fit whilst he hunts a contract?

Good. Charles seemed too good to be waiting round for us to get another injury. Happy with our 4 hookers now Batty's back, though an academy option would have been useful for AWC/United fixtures.

We do have a surfeit of LHPs in the academy though, maybe one of them is converting

Shame - he was really lively whenever he played. Decent darts too. Agreed that he is better than VV, but you can't have em all. Good luck to him.

Charles has looked good, always surprising he didn't get more of an opportunity. Whether you agree with them or not (and MVV certainly has the jury out) we have four hookers on contract and a sensible contract just doesn't make sense. Good luck to him at Wasps.

Best of luck to him. Seemed a good bloke and was always quite solid when he came on - not bad around the park either! With Dunn, Walker and Batty though I think we have 3 great options and as someone else said he is too good to be sat waiting for injuries to happen before he plays for us. Best he gets on elsewhere!

Best of luck Nathan and thanks for your time here!

Compliments on Dunn from EJ, in the Telegraph:

*Eddie Jones likes what he sees in Dunn. He is doing exceptionally, said Jones, a former hooker himself. He is one of the most driven guys in the squad. No flair, just hard and nugget.

He looks old-fashioned and plays old-fashioned.*

Looks like Hartley is now fighting it on two fronts.

I attended a Bath rugby evening a few months ago where Batty said Dunn had the potential to play for England sooner rather than later. This surprised me but I'm really pleased he is doing so well in camp, we can only benefit from this unless he gets injured...

I see Gabriel Oghre made his debut for Wasps at the weekend - good luck to the lad.
