I'm told there will be significant change, I have no idea what that could be as he couldn't really say. Hopefully it'll be something significant that will excite and convince me to buy a season ticket for next year.

Couple of experienced old heads signed, that will do nicely.

. Maybe; Maybe not, but it is a start and the very type of recruitment (i.e. old heads) that you went on about, like a dripping tap, last season. Make your mind up.

Really? - a tradition - and on this website - heavens above! Try going to some matches, home and away, you can give them a big welcome there.

To be fair Alan I think it's even longer than 22 years I have been going for nearly thirty years now. I am like you I have only been to three games this season just got frustrated with poor quality of players and almost a lack of passion from management down. Coaches have become stale also

Agree about some of the coaching staff becoming stale. Get toops in as forwards coach and Alex Rae returning to England from Jersey as specialist lineout and defence coach. Skippy in as backs coach. So far the players resigned and the 2 x new additions appear to be heading I the right direction. Would be nice to know who the players leaving are aswell!!

Heard quite a few of your countrymen using that language despairingly at Twickenham yesterday Alan.
