Are both reportedly leave Edinburgh. Both are Solly players who he rated highly and I could see them both coming here following Bresler and Weir.

Du Preez had an absolute stinker for whatever reason for Scotland,but is usually a massive ball carrier and very good player. Hidalgo Clyne has a brilliant high kick percentage and a like for like with Francois. Both would be great signings in my opinion.

Clyne to replace or compliment FH?

...seems we are getting the SRU through the 'back door'(Sm159) if we keep going back to Edinburgh

Pedants' corner: Complement rather than compliment? Although I am sure that each will admire the other's play.

Duly noted. I blame predictive text.

Hidalgo-Clyne has been offered a deal to stay at Edinburgh.

Be great to see both here. Du Preez is the type of 8 we have been missing, massive ball carrier.

"Hidalgo-Clyne has been offered a deal to stray at Edinburgh."

If he wants to stray to Worcester, he'd fit in well with Bressler, Du Preez, Weir et al and be made welcome.

He has, but the money isn’t good enough apparently.

What's Denton Contract situation?

Personally don't see anything in it, but Palmer is quite good with scottish rumours.

If he goes that is more compensation for us.

He might well go with Spencer leaving...

I would've thought so.

Also to me Denton seems very happy currently at worcester and i'm pretty sure him and Solomons where not on bad terms at Edinburgh.

Does seem strange, given his recent pronouncements, although he was quite philosophical about Will Spencer's move.

That said, he came to Worcester because our style of rugby suited him more and he felt it gave him more chance of getting back into the Scotland team. That's happened, so why throw it all up in the air again by moving?

Doesn't seem to make any sort of sense to me.



Whatever you do, do it safely!

Seems like it's Denton's decision,

Quote:
Warriors Director of Rugby Alan Solomons said: “We’re sorry to see Dents go but that’s the nature of professional sport.
“Dents is a really good bloke. We know he’ll continue to give his all in the Blue and Gold for the rest of the season and we wish him all the best in the future.”

Have to say that if it was his decision to go, then leaves a rather bitter taste.



Whatever you do, do it safely!

Different type of player. Bit more finesse about him, less lineout option, still some bosh.

Denton contract up end of this season. No compensation (Not sure that exosts). Huge loss. Tigers looking formidable?

Tigers should be formidable now! Their players are more than good enough.

USA agree. With will and David that's a great addition don't you think? They have made a difference for us for sure.
