Hodge has gone to Titans

Didn't really make much of an impact though did he?

I agree, not much of a loss based on last year.

Was one of the poor signings and there were quite a few of those last season. Onwards and upwards, lol

Looking at the club twitter feed I think we safely say that Jacob Field is still with us as he is in the pictures of the first preseason sessions.
Also looks like we have signed a guy called Ollie Brown as he has re-tweeted the pictures and his profile states he is a Bedford Blues rugby player. A bit of digging shows he is a utility back formerly of Wasps Academy and Ulster A team.
There is also Jacob Turner but I think he was part of our academy last season and playing at Bishops Stortford.
Lots more still to come I am sure.

Updated for Fields and Spelman. Desperately need some decent back row players.

The latest club communication on signings puts the number in the squad for next year at 27, which is also the number shown by TryBlues on page 1 of this thread.

The Players page on the Blues website [bedfordrugby.co.uk] however shows 28 players - the extra player being Dan Lewis.

Still short of a quality number 8 and turnover winner in the back row.Need at least two more centres. I'd say we're probably about 6 players short at the moment + the addition of the DR's. It would be nice not having to rely on them to fill the numbers. I'm told the young Northampton lock will be back in a Blues shirt this year which is good news if true. Surely most clubs by now have almost finalised their squads ready for pre-season, so not sure where the addition of some further quality is going to come from.

I think that I am correct in that this season clubs will be rewarded on their performances.....perhaps the saying .....'you have to speculate to accumulate' comes to mind.....

Agree with WB we need six more good signings....

Mrs S and I on our hols.....back soon...

No idea about Captain but first name on my teamsheet would be Dean Adamson.

Personally the captains job should be made easier with some much needed experience added to the squad. With Rae marshalling the forwards and Dicko the backs the captains job shouldn't burden anyone too much as in the past couple of seasons.
Not too bothered about this announcement, but more bothered about announcements on the recruitment front.
Lets hope our new captain hasn't signed yet and is one of the six players we still need.

Yep, need some centres and a ball carrying 8. Perhaps the DR players will fill these gaps?

Le Bourgeois is and will remain our captain I think. I've yet to see the new signings really, so can't judge them, but he's our best player from last season for me

About six weeks before the first of the friendlies, then straight into Championship fixtures and we are still 'several sandwiches short of a picnic' in terms of a competitive squad. Surely someone on this site knows when (and who) we are going to make some announcements. C'mon, let's be hearing from you.

Tim Streathwr has left Sarries and yet to announced anywhere else yet. We are short of centres and he is class at this level, too much to hope?

Quite possibly, although the reality of the captaincy is very much reality.
