Some posters seem very confident he is coming. Have I missed out on some encouraging recent signs since people were worried that it had gone a bit quiet?

Not that I'm aware of. The most positive signs are that we must be planning on signing a TH and he has not yet announced where he's going post Saints.

I am a bit mystified why it hasnít been announced yet. Incidentally I understand Brookes is primarily a tight head but can cover duties at loose head as well.

That would be me, he said it at Saints last home game against Worcester. It didn't sound like he was joking, so I have to assume he was telling the truth.

No idea why the hell we haven't announced it yet, especially after yesterday's news about Carr. For whatever reason this is dragging on, at the very least we are short a tighthead.

Maybe proving fitness / medical? Needs to prove he can play at Wasps pace?

Saw a picture of him on Instagram earlier with a Wasps fan in Leamington, so maybe he's doing something at the club.

Re fitness he seemed to be playing regularly for Saints in the latter part of the season so can't imagine it's that?

he has already openly told both saints and wasps fans how expensive houses are in Leamington compared to Northants so assume whatever you like from these conversations I suppose.

on the Instagram front he also follows Wasps rugby, yet not Falcons or Tigers (two clubs he's played for).

Anyway hopefully we'll hear something soon one way or the other.

Known locally as the Land Rover or JLR effect (the new factory at Gaydon). It is making house prices rocket up. Nowhere is cheap in South Warwickshire, not even the 'village' I live in (Wellesbourne, which was always cheap), but at least it is still cheaper than Leamington.

What is the maximum distance the club wish the players to live from the Ricoh?

They key is how far from the training ground, as they take a coach up from there. Given that all I hear is that they are likely to move to the Old Leamingtonians for the new base, Leamington is a bit of a win/win.

If Kieran is finding the house prices expensive, why doesn't he just swap homes with Hask?

Win/win surely?

He thinks property prices are expensive, seriously ! He should look at the South East, he might change his mind

We said exactly that. Take a look at Beaconsfield/Amersham/Gerards Cross/Windsor, or London of course. It's all relative.

Those are exactly the same areas I was thinking about.

I suppose it depends on how you look at it.

Just because something costs say £500k for zone 2 in London, doesn't mean that £300k is cheap for Midlands.
