Player news for Thursday 25th. Interestingly, looking at the Chiefs twitter page, they have started following Duncan Weir, Edinburgh and Scotland fly-half!!

According to Fissler, Chiefs are interested in signing Mike Haley, the Sale fullback. Could be a replacement for Lachie Turner who is out of contract at the end of the season.
Will Chudley has signed for Bath and Santiago Cordero is on the way subject to a visa coming through.
Tank is looking for a club in Japan and Dave Ewers is close to agreeing a new deal!

Does it suggest how long Cordero might be with us? It sounds like Haley could be the long term option.

Haley is a good player from what I have seen but according to Sale fans is inconsistent, which is why he hasn’t managed to get closer to the England squad. I actually think he is a similar player to Max Bodilly.

New signing announced today at 2pm.

Like the thought of Haley, remember him being almost untouchable at 15 in the Saxons game when Hepburn and Armond made debuts away in South Africa

Will likely be Cordero today I’m guessing

In the announcement above regarding Ewers and Bodilly re-signing, Baxter talks about having the right people in the club. Cipriani, while being at times brilliant, is not the right person to fit in to the ethos of the club.

Completely agree Running Bear. Ciprisni was harranging the referee in our recent game with Wasps.

I wonder if we might see Slade play 10 again next season with Campo coming in to midfield

Whilst he's an assess most of the time, Cips always appears to be in it for himself. Not the team player Rob looks for IMHO.

There's a Youtube vid of a Q&A session with RB where somebody suggests Cips as a possible Exe player and Rob actually lets out an involuntary chuckle at the idea.

Half-backs are the issue to focus on?

As Slade understandably wants to focus on 13 there is no doubt we need to strengthen at 10 when Simmonds is still learning. Weir is a hard-case and certainly closes the 10 channel!

Im not sure at 9 either. White does not do it for me, looking vunerable when kicking, Townsend seems solid, and when does Jack Maunder play for the first team? There is a big step from U20 to Premiership first team. If it were me (its not) I'd be attempting to get Joe Simpson from Wasps who is superb and barely plays for the 1st team currently when not rudely scoring great tries against us!

At 15 Mallinder is an interesting thought, but I like Bodily who had some good games when he gets the opportunity. Dollman is not quite back to himself yet?

Maunder I am sure would be playing 1st team now, but his season has been totally disrupted with injuries, a knee operation will keep him out for the remainder of the season but will be 100% for next season.

Not sure what will happen to the London Irish squad should they go down. But I have enjoyed watch the 6/7 Botha play. Great attitude and work rate. Would be a good addition to the squad.

I think our 9 ‘s are fine with two further good academy lads progressing. Simmonds I feel will be one of the best 10’s in the league going forward he has every skill set needed and Slade will be a centre not a 10 in my view but could play there at a push. Having versatile players is a real bonus. Steeno will still be around for another couple of years and is mr reliable.

He’s caught my eye too, looks a real pain in the proverbial to play against... wherever he ends up .. they’ll be lucky to have him.

Ruck is suggesting Alex Cuthbert could be joining the Chiefs for next season. A really good signing if it goes ahead.
