Recently been looking at the Irish Twitter page and always look at the followers as it is always a good indicator to who has signed for next season. I noticed recently that Gordon Reid, the Scotland international loosehead, has followed. Maybe looking too much in to but if he has signed could be a good addition, sure up loosehead for a few seasons and at 31 is reaching his prime.
Some clips of him in action:

Out of contract in the summer by the look of it.

That's as good as an announcement for me. Good work

Good lord. I've never seen the guy play but if this turns out to be true, credit to everyone behind the scenes for what would be a cracking signing considering last season's nightmare and our current Championship status.

EDIT: Looks like he starts most games for a Glasgow and over 100 caps for them so one of their more experienced players.. if true this is fantastic and would show that as a club we still do have some 'pulling power'!

How do you tell if someone has recently started following someone else? I didn't think you could do this on twitter. Anyway, not convinced by this evidence but we shall see!

Would be a good signing as court is reaching the end of his career, him along with a tighthead and that's the props sorted

If true a canny signing and with rumour of du Plessis our front row stock for next season would be healthy:

Danny H-A
Court (if still in contract)

Du plessis

Looks like management have identified in the wetter moths we generally suffer against bigger packs and are doing something to address that i.e. big lumps and a 10/15 that can put us in the right areas of the pitch.

How long is Ben Franks contracted for?

For those of you who have SKY, you could see him in action against Munster on Saturday.
I regularly watch the free-to-view Celtic matches, and have seen him too in a Scotland shirt.

A potentially great signing albeit he's going to be on international duty, unlike Court and Franks. He's 30 years old in a couple of months.

I believe Ben Franks is on a 3-year contract.
