Still hearing the name of the project prop mentioned a few weeks ago. Just has yet to be announced.

I believe there are a few key people still on holiday right now so I'd be patient for another week or so.

I remain confused / bemused as to what "project player" means. The name you have heard mentioned will presumably give us a clue as to what it does mean.

The same one mentioned on here a few weeks back - Farai Mudariki.

Project in the traditional sense, huge potential, but a very raw talent.

In fairness, that's exactly the term used to refer to the likes of CJ Stander and Bundee Aki in Ireland.

Could a project player also refer to a positional change e.g. Tom Youngs from Centre to Hooker, Matti Williams from Back Row to Hooker?

I thought a project player is someone with no connection, brought to a country to live and play rugby for a number of years to qualify to play for that country.

So a project player isn't English and takes 5 years now instead of 3 to qualify to play for England.

So a project player is foreign and young?

If they lived and played in England they would qualify on residency?

So Southern Hemisphere probable?

Project Schmoject.

Definition imprecise, means different things to different people in different contexts.

Lost interest now.

A number of Olympians have changed sports. Cyclists and rowers seem to do it fairly often. I reckon our last project was the Tomahawk...

All the major Formula One teams have young driver development programs and will speculatively sponsor young drivers through Formula 3, Formula 2 (this is a thing again!) and then F1, if deemed good enough.

I guess that's analogous to A leagues and Anglo Welsh cup.

Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Riccirdo and Max Verstappen are all big names to come from Red Bull

Lewis Hamilton basically invented McLarens - look out for Lando Norris (next big thing) from here.

Charles Le Clerc is from Ferrari.


Many others have fallen by the wayside - Red Bull's notorious for rejecting those that fall even slightly short.

Young foreign player with aspirations to play international rugby

A raw talent 'project' player at Worcester many years ago was a young South African guy who played amateur rugby for most of the teams at WRFC. He came over for a season not having a club.He had left college.

4 seasons later he played in the World Cup final for South Africa at 6.Which they won.

Ruben Kruger!

These will know the answer to the question in the title to this thread:-

Not that there's anything much in the article - which has no doubt been volunteered to keep us interested over the summer break (cynical me).

I suppose to an extent both Mike Williams and Nick Schonert could be classed as project players. Both were young with potential and wanted to play international rugby. Be more than happy with another 2 like that!

I just been catching up on the Warriors social media and there are two players I donít recognise? No idea how to post pics on here but one looks like a prop (not Mudariki) but either a black lad or mixed race and another that looks huge and like a lock but I canít see his face but has a very distinctive tattoo on his left arm. The pic of the two new players I donít recognise are on the latest Instagram pic of the team in training

Noticed that as well AJ, especially the one with the tattoos - he's a beast. Interested to find out who these guys are.

Why do you think we'd sign a couple of players but not announce it?

Instagram go out of their way to prevent you accessing pix without their wrapper - but it can be done. This one?

Obviously more to second row (I used to play 4 & 5) than those impressive stats but he sounds promising!

Thought we had signed a few SA boys with English Qualifications to join Accademy & a SA 9.
That was the talk after Gold did tour of SA just s before Christmas.
I just assumed they were the project players.
Does anyone know when we announce 2018/19 Accademy squad?
Assume some will step up, other released with a sprinkling of new blood.
