Would be a decent signing which would add to the squad.

Sounds a good prospect. Another Saint. Stocking up in the centers I presume.



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

C'mon the boys in Green!!

Center/winger.

Link above says can play both.

A very talented winger at that. I seem to recall him scoring some cracking tries.

I recall a match at FG a couple of years back when he nailed us, scoring 2 or 3

Looks extremely quick, sort of in the Ransom mould

Has he been injured or just way down the pecking order at Saints? After a good start to his career he's not played a game for them since he did his shoulder 18 months ago.

Assume he's played some A league?

Edit - Injured this season, I mean

Very good player who always used to score lots against us. I'd be very happy to have him

Another proven Prem quality player which can only be good to have on the books.

In fairness to K&K with the rumours of Mercer, Elliot & signing Stephenson/Myler they are building a squad capable of going up and staying up.

I remember Elliot begin very impressive about 2-3 years ago. really nailed down his spot on the wing for Saints and scored some very tidy tries... but i completely forgot about him until this came up.

could be a very good signing... very understated but very effective

Ransom > Elliott

was throughout the age groups and nothing to suggest much has changed on that front. Hope he gets more time - has always played well when called upon, but not given opportunities

Not a fan of the Elliott signing myself as I feel there are other positions that require more attention and don't think he's much of an upgrade on what is already present.

From the 2018/19 thread

Wing
Nalaga
Ransom
Ojo
Loader
Hassell-Collins


We might be a little light out wide, depending if Loader and OHC are able to step up or not. If they are, then 5 wings plus the likes of Fowlie and Parton able to cover should see us through at least this season. Are they good enough for the GP? Nalaga and Ransom I would say yes, Ojo I would be hesitant about as he'll be 34 should we return at the first time of asking (although he seems to have gotten quicker with age),the academy boys we just don't know. I can see the logic to this, but still hoping we've kept money in the bank to find a grizzly 8

They are probably being cautious about signings like a big 8. With World Cup year next year Iíd imagine theyíre holding back some cash to go in with a decent offer on a prem quality 8. Itís risky but no point wasting dosh on a multi year deal for an average player in a key position.

Agreed no need to sign too many now - we need enough of a squad to comfortably gain promotion but don't want to be signing guys who can't contribute in the premiership. Would expect a lot of southern hemisphere internationals may end their international careers after the World Cup and be up for grabs. I'm guessing we'll be sniffing around premiership academies offering better game time prospects to people.

Elliot's agreed a move away from Bedford to an unknown destination

Injury cover for us with a few backs struggling at the moment?

According to rugby inside line he is going to Zebre

Sounds plausible. A loss for Bedford anyway.

With Loader out for three months, Parton for the season, Bell still a while away Nalaga not seemingly favoured, would make a fair bit of sense.

He used to be a bit of a nightmare for LI, and was still looking useful a couple of weeks back for Bedford

Still mildly amazed that Ransom wasn't given more of a shot

He would be an excellent signing for you if you could get his signature on paper and would probably relish the chance to play in the premiership again next season if possible. Always remember him running the length of the pitch after intercepting a pass against Leinsyer which won the match for saints that day in Dublin.

Would be a welcome addition that's for sure
It was criminal not signing a couple of back 3 players given the fact that we lost Joe, Lewi and Ransom this year

He's going to Zebre and to be honest it is not a loss to the Blues. He didn't add anything to our backline, so frees up funds to get someone else in if wanted.
