Squad coming along nicely,but I for one would still like to see a couple of what I would describe as " traditional second rows " to compliment Brett.I know the guys who have formed the 8 for the last couple of matches have preformed reallly well,but I just feel we have been losing out in the line out,just my personal feelings.
No doubt Mr Paver and Mr Cattle have had their feelers out,and whomever are brought into the squad will become firm favourites

Squad updated after today's announcement,it certainly seems that our policy so far is based on recruiting experienced and proven Championship players.

The process starting to take place and hopefully with a few more arrivals will be stronger than last season. Good plans for the future.

I`m sure i`ve read somewhere recently that Premiership A teams will be playing more matches this comimg season. Point being, if so, will that reduce the amount and availability of loan players from the Chiefs in a Pirates Shirt? Does this mean that we may have more new signings?
On the back of that, I think the four centres we have signed up could be a real handful. Really looking forward to see how they shape up.

There was talk by PRL of the 'A' league fixtures being doubled from 5 to 10 but this was at the same time Nigel Melville was talking about increasing the number of D/R players in the championship. Now that idea appears to have been shelved there is a suggestion that maybe these games won't happen.There is no doubt that any increase in 'A' league games will impact on the availability of D/R players.

Does anyone know if we'll be getting any DR's from Chiefs this season. It's a long time to go with a squad of just 28, given the rigours of the modern game and the likelyhood that we'll pick up a number of injuries along the way.

Squad updated after last nights announcement of 2 D/R players joining from the Chiefs with more to come. Alan Paver siad last night that it was very important that we look after the players physically and mentally as we would be operating with quite a small squad of 28 with a few D/R from Exeter.
