Just read in today’s TRP that Ben Franks looks set to join Northampton Saints at the end of the season. That a big wedge of money we will save if this true.



I'd rather be a Paddy then a Quin!!

C'mon the boys in Green!!

TBH It was nice to have a RWC winning all black in the squad but I don't think it has counted for much in the end.

He was superb for us last year to be fair. Player of the season for me. Not what we signed him for really but welcome all the same.

Was always likely to leave at the end of this season when his contract was up. Thought he may retire and pursue other interests, but good luck to him if Saints is where he ends up.

Yep agreed he was fantastic last year and wish him well wherever he ends up. Thankfully we look okay at tight head with Hoskins playing some good rugby at the moment

Don't forget Saulo also primed to make an impact towards the end of the season.





He's not really here is he...

His defensive play last year was fantastic, never seem better.

But he’s been pretty disappointing in the scrum all his time with us. At best we only get parity, and you should expect more from a 50 cap AB.

He’s only 33 so has a few years yet until he retires.

Hopefully Danny Hobbs will be fit next season to.
