Has joined Gloucester shame we didn't bring Fraser back home. Good, young prop

Indeed FT, seemed to be playing a lot last season but has had little game time this season. Got a good work rate as well.

Wonder if he is not a player liked by Mauger. When Cockerill was in sole charge/with O'connor, Balmain was arguably preferred to Cole for periods. Now he sits behind Mulipola on the tight side.

He is a good prop, but I think our tight head side is well covered with Welsh and Wilson x 2.

Good signing for Glaws though. Wonder if Humphries will still be their DOR next season....? They have not really kicked on under his stewardship despite some big signings and good academy players. There is also the take over happening too.

I would go for Ethan Waller the young loosehead prop from Saints, I know it sounds like he is going to Worcester. smiling smiley

Maybe not if he wants to play in the AP... these things are the sort that agents and clubs will say to turn a prospect in their favour.

Exactly KWA444, would Fraser want to come to KP to be 4th in line....I think not...and do we need Ethan Waller?
There has been a major change in the 'transfer market' thanks to our performances this season.
It appears that agents are coming to Falcons with their players who want to join us, we need to keep the majority of our squad and add in key positions.No longer are we scraping the barrel.All credit to Semore, Deano, the players and supporters- in fact all credit to 'Newcastle Falcons'Our target now is the big European Competition -and it is achievable.
