I think it may be re-signings rather than new signings (hopefully, I am wrong).

But I think it will be the academy players coming through - Lawrence, Hill and Kitchener/Butler - signing their first contract as a 'professionals' hence the 'next chapter'.

Having Butler, Hill, Kitchener and Lawrence (alphabetical order!) signed on long term contracts would indeed be good news.

AJ Warriors if Schonert it will be a further extension, as I thought he was already signed for next season.
USA I think you are correct about youngsters, also signing and on longer contracts than previously . I believe that Weir is close to another one year deal, the length being determined by our new medical tests which are to be more stringent in line with what happens in soccer.
Positive news I think.

I thought he was up for renewal this season Rollo? If he does still still have another year then that’s even better!

Great news that Hill has signed a contract, he still has plenty of work to do on his game but he has plenty of ability and talent and a great attitude so I only see him going forwards.

On Cosgrove a good injury cover signing but that is it.

We need to at loose head for Bower and Jack will be fourth choice, but will be motivated to do well.

I like the idea of getting someone in who has an affinity with Worcester. Had Bower's injury not been so severe I'd have love to have seen us tempt someone like Steven Kitshoff to spend his off season with us, but I can't imagine the Stormers would be happy for us to have a player for so long.

I seen to remember that Dean Ryan was a bit put out when Jack moved to Scotland. Lets hope that a move back resurrects his career which like Alex Grove's move north of the boarder didn't work out.

I'm of an age now when "Bah! Humbug!" is allowed. Christmas seems to start in August - only a slight exaggeration - but something else which is getting earlier every year is the recruitment roundabout with all its rumours, whispers and speculation.

I recall a recent post which suggested that January 1 is no longer the starting point for the annual jamboree. It may still be officially but blind eyes are now common.

In many ways reading the hopes and fears about players who might be coming to Worcester or, sadly, leaving for other clubs is quite entertaining but there is a serious undertow. There do seem to be, out of sight of course, auctions for certain players and all of that will add even more fuel to the fire which is salary inflation.

Nothing can be done about it, it's inevitable, unless the system can be changed. I don't have a suggestion. The mechanism which is meant to control it all is of course the salary cap but it is something which is very difficult to police.

Anyway, on with the rumours. At least if serious players are talking to Worcester it might mean that we are no longer considered a relegation risk. But again...

So many loopholes to it, it's basically now Jan 1st is when other teams can announce signings from other clubs. When Gloucester announced the Signing of Owen Williams on the 4th of January no one

From what I gather clubs can still get a slapped wrist it if they or the player are extremely stupid about it though.

Are any other clubs talking to Ben Teo?

Hope so!

For his salary we could get a good lock and another back rower.
