International Centre has Signed?

Ok ok ok. This will be met with the usual amount of scepticism any news of a potential new signing is. However there have been rumblings around the club that we have signed, and I quote, ‘a South African Interntaional’ centre. Now unless this is some cruel trick and it was Wynands retention they were talking about, i wonder who this could be? Any ideas?

It was Wynand re-signing.

I got the impression it’s a new player. Could be wrong though. Jokingly mentioned Kriel, got told he was way beyond the ‘budget’. Lol

Given Rory Duncan you’d think Venter is logical.

I steal all my rumours from AJ to be fair.

Venter looks a good player! Makes a lot of sense as well.

If true this would almost certainly confirm that Teo is off...unless he’s signed a new deal haha!!

Think T'eo has a year left.Common knowledge! But we know how fragile contracts are.

Compensation as per agreed Premiership rules.

It has to be done to stop poaching in the future.

Don’t see why Te’o should be off if we have signed someone else. This year we have at centre

Millsy
Te’o
Olivier
Willison
Stelling

Stelling and Willison are off so if we sign this new centre that would leave us with

Millsy
Te’o
Olivier
?

Someone please explain how that would mean Te’o is off? It’s standard for teams to have at least 4/5 centres

No but I assume he will with Will Butler coming through followed closely by Ollie Lawrence. Can see Will getting a pro contract and Ollie getting a senior academy contract

Yup, fully agree AJ.

Expect it's a year or so too early for Ollie, although he will be top quality.

Where would Teo go though? I thought he’d be off to Bath but with Jackson going there that’s not happening. I don’t see any of the other top sides needing him unless he takes a punt on Saints.

Bath was the main rumour. They're losing Banahan and are short of centres so could still see it happening. Money will be the deciding factor though.

Tbf, wonderful player that T’Eo is, can only see him hanging around in the English game until the World Cup in 2019. I reckon he’ll see his final year out here considering how easy he gets it then clear off to Brisbane in the NRL. If Tuilagi can prove his fitness, big if, then England have a ball carrying centre to move forward with.

Teo isn't a particularly young guy anyhow so this will be his last shot at a World Cup, you'd imagine.
