Coventry Live reporting that Wasps are interested in signing Zach to replace the recently departed Christian Wade as a new winger with the X-factor. I hope not!

This was mentioned in the Rugby Paper a few weeks back by Fissler
Letís wait and see what happens

I hope it's not true. And yes let's wait and see. For our part we need to be more progressive and retain the talent we invest in. Build the club around these local lads. Sale are doing it offering long term contracts to their academy graduates.
The likes of Goneva and Sinoti are not going to go on forever and we need some forward planning . Having said that, I like the look of Morgan Passman and hope to see him getting some game time next season. Looks quite a unit for a winger.

Is there only room for one of Radwan & Kibirigie - in their eyes perhaps.

Also doesn't say much for Marcus Watson who I thought ticked most boxes for a winger and wouldve happily still had at KP.

The way Zach has played recently it would be fair to say he could be in on merit with Sinoti being the one to sit it out on the bench

I'd agree with that

If it reduces Sinotti's workload that's not a bad thing, plus imagine trying to keep Zack quiet then Sinotti comes on!

That's what Deano said - hope so.

Zac has taken some time to break through, due to various reasons, the bad injury then the court case.

But for whatever reason he's not been seen as a definite starter, until recently.

Radwan seemingly falling in to the same category.

Passman does look like a big fella on the wing, and he is scoring tries for fun with his club. So it will be interesting to see his development.

Im sure they have their reasons and full knowledge of what they want in the management team.

Well maybe Zacs form has shown he is ready to be a starter, or certainly share it with Sinoti and Goneva, with Radwan and Passman and Arscott supporting.

I would be happy with those options.

I was disappointed when Watson left, but if he hadn't then Kibirige stays down the pecking order. At the present I'd take Zach over Marcus Watson any day.

Marcus has been another example of thinking that the grass was greener elsewhere.

He only gets game time when their so called star players are unavailable and i really do think that if he had stayed with us he would have absolutely flourished.

I rate him very highly, but think that his development has not progressed as well as it could have done with us as i am sure he would have had much more game time.

Zach is developing nicely now and i do not think that he will move on!

I think Marcus was injured a lot which also didn't help his cause but I agree I think his opportunities have been limited

Hope we don't get rid of Kibirige much better option than Arscott. smiling smiley

I would think if Zach wasn't here next season it more a case of him choosing to leave rather than us sending him on his way.
