If you read the report on Dean Mumms Signing (here) RB says

"The arrival of Dean will takes us to four, but I'd say we're still a little light in terms of the back five, so we may well add another couple of people in that area."

Its definetly a possiblility..

I actually thought when he announced he wasnt re-signing a few weeks ago that he might make a nice addition to our squad. With him being avaliable and us needing a back row forward, Iam not going to say iam surprised.

I be just been onto Wikipedia (so what I'm about to write must be truesmiling smiley). The entry about Kai uses terms like "talismanic" and "a great leader" (I can't put a link at the mo) , sounds good to me.

Thoughts are like arrows: once released , they strike their mark. Guard them well or one day you may be your own victim

Many wuss supporters feel letting Kai go is a big mistake, he will make a fine addition to your team if true. Look after him

I just wonder how RB & co feel about these leaks of who we may be signing. In the past we have not heard anything until the club has released it, but this year we have heard about 1 definite, Mumm, and 2 probable, Horstmann and Votu, signings before any official announcements. Difficult to control the situation I know but just wonder what the club thinks about it.

50p, I guess it's difficult, as you say, to control every situation, particularly when, as in the cases of Votu and Mumm, a story comes out on the other side of the world - in this day&age, with communication so instant, I think it's inevitable that information comes out ahead of what the club would actually like

[quovte clalan]An improvement player to what we [www.rugbynetwork.net] have?[/quote]

I would say more of an extension to the squad to cover the Premiership and HC.

I just hope James Phillips stays he looked really lean on Saturday during the warm up. I really rate him as player and is always incredibly strong while Richie Baxter is the present i see JP as our future number 8.

Kai is a decent player and if he joins will make an addition to your squad.
He can play 6 or 8, dosn't have great pace but is a steady player.
With Abbot, Best, Betty,Kevesic, Cowen and a couple of additions we could not afford to keep him. Plus Chris Jones who can play backrow.
If he signs good luck to him and Cheifs, but I would not swop him for anyone we are keeping.
He apparently told folk after the game the Ex was his destination.

That is my point, if he brings nothing more to the table than another body to make up the numbers, why have him.
No dis respect to Warriors, if he's not good enough for them, why is he good enough for us.

That's what Rob does - takes players who are discarded by other clubs with a point to prove. Look no further than James Scaysbrook who was deemed surplus to requirements by Bath and yet for me has been our player of the season and one of the best 7s in the league.

I think Bath pedigree at the time was a tad more impressive in squad strength.

the Chiefs are now high profile and trying to control the internet and world wide media is totally impossible unless you live in China, Burma etc but even they give up sometimes.

Let the rumours keep coming.

The reason Kai is leaving us at Wuss is down to cash not class. I for one would have loved Kai to stay but if the money isn't there then I think he will be a great player for you.

What I actually think is rather rude is that the club tell the Express & Echo before they tell members! When they are able to say we should be the first to know. All it requires is an email news release. That would prevent all the unnecessary speculation. Possibly one for the member’s forum tomorrow.
