Fissler reporting in TRP that Glaws centre Andy Symons will replace JPS who is joining Edinburgh.

Very similar players but considerably different in stature

Scott is about 3 years younger and EQ too. Not sure what Glaws fans think about him.

Iím guessing given our performance this season, the corps díesprit amongst the players, overdue international acknowledgment and the North Eastís excellent night life and welcoming fans a lot of players will now be looking at options further up the country.

Can we have Huw Jones please!!

To be honest I would rather have JPS and Josh with options for Mermoz and Flood to cover inside centre.

I would prefer to keep the player we know, and he knows us. It works.

I would like to keep Socino as well, but Harris opting for Scotland might mean to Falcons need a centre who is EQ.

So we lose JP an international class player and bring in Symons?? No offence to the lad but he's not the type of player we want if we wanna make the step of premiership challengers?

There's obviously a reason that the JPS rumours won't go away and also obviously a reason he wants to leave if they are true.

Sometimes the club decides to move on, sometimes the player just wants to leave.

It is of course no more than a rumour from Fissler's gossip column. It could be true, it could be cobblers.

Not yet that I'm aware of but since when it comes to rugby transfers, Fissler walks this Earth like a god, you can bet your house that it'll happen.

Wouldnít say it was a big step backwards, JPS hasnít been a guaranteed starter over the last few months, I think Dean will have another gem up his sleeve to fill the gap

Sounds like he was just going to be too expensive with Mermoz, Harris, Matavesi locked down.

He's 29 though so I would hope we get someone in who is early twenties and we get 5-6 years out of them

We will agree to disagree on this one. Has he not been Falcons players of the season twice in four years?

Agreed Benpj17 as i also do not see this as a massive step back.If Santi also goes then so be it...... Players move on for whatever their reasons, but i am sure that Deano has it all under control.

He wasnít last years player of the season and he wonít be this years, yes he has been a great player for the falcons but at the age of 29 and not guaranteed a place in the match day 23 I just donít see it as a step back

JPS is a crackin player...

However Matavesi has finally settled in and has been top class...and is an absolute man mountain to go with it. Mermoz is finally fit, and theres Matavesi Jr coming through aswell who is huge also.

Flood can play 12 as well.

Maybe it was felt JP was the one to move on.

Totally agree, it's a shame...... but not massive and certainly not a step backwards.

JPS has been a great servant and I wish him well

If Santi does leave and McGuigan signs then I think we're slightly up on the deal.

Mcguigan coming back...? Is that looking legit?

Mixed thoughts on that one.

For me McGuigan is just an inferior version of Cooper, plus he's been injury prone at Leicester. Santiago offers something different with his pace and offloading game.

Been impressed with Copper's form- was about to say a real tiger but THAT would be bad form!

I'm not sure being an inferior version of Cooper is a bad thing. Maybe he'll learn from the great man and develop to be a carbon copy. I was very impressed with Copper' s performance at Glaws.

Several pundits commenting that he is the best hooker in the Premiership this season.

Can,t disagree on the form he has shown!
