Have watched Mermoz playing for Tigers on TV several times and live at Welford Road yesterday and so far he hasn't shown anything like the performances he displayed a couple of seasons ago when he was a French international I hope next season is better.
Mermoz is a far better centre than anything we currently have and I'm excited that that calibre of player is willing to come to KP. Yes he hasn't set the world on fire but in 6 games only 4 starts he's scored 2 try's and in an unfamiliar side I'd say that's pretty good.
He seems to be a 80 minute regular in the Leicester team which says a lot given their cash and squad so can only think he will be an asset.
Our progress is slow but we aren't staring at 11 th place this year and TBH have had a pretty tough recent run. Hopefully get a couple of wins coming up and then look forward to improving on our position next season.
