Dean Brooker is now at Gala in the Scottish borders...

Sam Nixon is clocking up the game time at Bath. He's figured in all three PSFs so far - and is off to Ireland this weekend for another with Leinster.

He's doing something right up at Bath!

Sam Nixon has certainly been getting some attention:

Bath Chronicle

He could be mixing it with the (even) big(ger) boys on Saturday...

Thought for a while Gully might have hung up his boots...

He's back on the starting team sheet for Ampthill this week, so he must still be going strong. Might have been injured, of course.

Tom Arscott played 2nd half of last season [from Feb] for Leeds Carnegie. Not sure if he's still there.

He's not. Now with Stade Rouennaise under his old Bristol bosses Richard Hill [Bristol were heavily fined for Hill taking him and Ed Barnes from Albion contrary to transfer rules] and Martin Haag.

Found on rolling-maul (Old Nick on whether the Cov train could be derailed):

"One wheel off the track last night at training. Broken leg for centre Heath Stevens who was set to make his 99th Coventry appearance tomorrow, and has been captaining the team for the last few weeks.

Counterbalancing that to some extent, loan Tom Kessell (Saints - Official) coming in at scrum half for a couple of months while Coventry's two regular scrum halves Pete White and Dave Brazier are out injured."

Bad luck for Heath and best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery. As for Tom in a few weeks time...

Sam Simmonds got a brief run out yesterday in a red rose shirt against Oz.

After Jack Maunder in the summer, which of the current crop of loans/DRs could be in the running for a call up from Eddie Jones?

Finally, after all the bench-warming Sam Nixon gets a run-out for Bath in the Champs Cup:

BBC Rugby

A win, but sadly no progression to the quarters... Bound to be more to come from him, though.

Reviewing this thread, there's a worrying trail of season-killing injuries in Aug "friendlies"; Dave Fisher, Robin Wedlake...

Latest is Nile Dacres doing his ACL in Cov's PSF with Moseley last Saturday. Best of luck on a 100% recovery, big fella!
