Maybe being located nearer to Bath suits his RAF career ambitions better? Lots of things could make him want to go. If hes going he's going. Mafi is a better player plus we could get more in. We've got Ben Donnell in the academy who is very highly rated too. No one player is bigger than the club.

Mafi is a better player based on what? his you tube clips?

No player is bigger than the club, never would have suggested otherwise. But keep losing your best players to Bath and it hurts. I certainly does not help

@SixNineOne.
You're new here. Some of us are a little tired of shelling out our hard-earned to provide a stepping stone to BATH Rugby.

You're right,

But my recollection during my 15 years as a season ticket holder is that we co-existed peacefully with Bath until a crass piece of mismanagement on our part sent Toby Booth to Farleigh House, rapidly followed by several of his proteges. Given those connections, it's not surprising they've found our squad to be fertile hunting ground. Rather than blaming Bath, I'd like to see us building an environment where players actively want to stay and, to their credit, the current management seem to be thinking along similar lines.

I broadly agree with that : not sure I'm apportioning most of the blame at Bath Rugby though.

It's a bizarre thread. Could you imagine the Sarries' forum decrying the departure of a player de-stabilising the club?

I hope you're right in the direction of travel, but we'll see.

Josh: excellent player at championship level and good leader. Played relatively few games in the prem due to his illness last year, although did look very good.

Mafi: Excellent player at top league level in both UK and France. Has played in League finals on numerous occasions. Won leagues. Consistently played in top level European competitions for a numbers of years. Also is a regular international player.

I'm not saying josh isn't great for us but if he leaves and we get mafi in, i do think based on current standings we would be trading up. As said previously i would rather have both in the team.

Bath offers a lot to an aspirational player versus what we offer, in my view. Stabler record in premiership, a full stadium, beautiful location, Allegedly better opportunities for aspiring England internationals. Stunning city. The transfer system means contracts are - well, are they materially effectively binding? In the players shoes I would switch uk Bath without doubt, if I was good enough to get an offer. Shame for LI, granted, but as I have said here for years (understandably unpopularly) if a competitor offers your staff a genuinely far better package and prospects, most will go. That's why the move to London was mandatory in my opinion. It's the first step to creating a fantastically attractive stronghold to compete as an employer. Great move, I think.

Well contracts are binding to an extent. He would have gone in the summer by all accounts but had another year to run on his contract with no release clause. Hence he stayed.

Not sure the London move is that relevant. We are already based in London as an employer.

Bath have just announced signings of Christian Judge and Mike Williams. Both 2nd row. Maybe influences this? Although on the Bath board they seem to think they'd still be short with departures taken into account.

Bath baffle me as a club.

Have all the resources, great supporter base, ground, facilities, owner with seemingly unlimited pockets, yet still achieve a grand total of.... Nothing. Just seem content on poaching other teams academy graduates/top players and getting mediocrity back.

Fair play if josh wants to move on. He was never one of our own like, JJ and Garvey were. Wish him the best but if the rumored signings come through we'll be getting more than adequate replacements.

What is really disappointing to me is that McNally moves, and all the guff about K&K, Brentford, making him captain, world class training facilities, club ambition etc etc, had no impact at all.

I don't criticise anyone for furthering what may be a short career, it just worries me that a young, ambitious player doesn't buy it.

I hope that he's moving for cash and that is the only reason

Yeah, fair point. It was pretty lacklustre last year and late leavers like Ransom didn't get a mention at all. Can certainly do better than that.

Indeed, it could start with you not hovering like a bunch of vultures waiting to peck the flesh off of our carcass. I mean seriously, every bloody time we get a player that is half decent your message board swarms like a bunch of piranha about how you should sign them. In the last 2 years there's been Josh and Joe that you've signed, you were also salavating at the idea of signing Johnny W prior to that before you went for Roberts.

Yes I can't defend them on that nor do I speak for them.

It is a sad indictment of our academy set up for many years, that we weren't producing our own youth players up to standard. Hoping this will change soon, with the way our under 18s are going this year.

Anyway good luck on the promotion bid.

I know how you feel about the academy. Ours was producing nothing after its heart got ripped out. We then started investing in it again, it took a while and started bearing fruits in the likes of Big Joe and then I'm not sure what happened to him, not seen him in our lineup for a while.

It's really not Bath's fault, it is down to a transfer system in rugby that is not fit for purpose, yes Bath obviously have more funds, a bigger draw and more suppot than they do in creating their own cohesive style of winning rugby to producing a successful team with a soul, yes I know we are in the Championship and they've yet again taken one of our best, but let's just draw a line (until next season)

Saw the below on the Barf board. Interesting question.

ďThe Irish move to Reading looked a good one for a while and had it's moments but they seem to lose something along the way. Smith, Catt, O'Shea were all big characters, Woodward was also there for a while. It seems to be a club where you learn your trade and then move on. This applies to coaches and players. Why does nobody want to stay there?Ē.

Wondering why they are reminiscing about our past.

Need to stop blaming other clubs, if our players wanted to stay with us they would do so. Hopefully The 2 Ks are building a culture that players want to be part of and so are keen to stay. McNally is no loss imho, not premiership standard and never really bought into the LI ethos.

Need to stop blaming other clubs, if our players wanted to stay with us they would do so. Hopefully The 2 Ks are building a culture that players want to be part of and so are keen to stay. McNally is no loss imho, not premiership standard and never really bought into the LI ethos.

I actually agree with your first point.

McNally is clearly premiership standard though imo.
