Any chance we could tell Bath about Williams? Could be the lucky charm we need for them to go down.

We must be really @#$%& journalists off. Most clubs announce signing together, so they can write one article on them, but we keep drip feeding so they each need an article. Have to say I've been impressed by the London Irish twitter, the gifs and videos have been pretty slick.

I agree the way releasing the signings have not only got irish fans talking but also other rugby fans. We are being talked about as a challenge next year. I also trust the team will be able to get that onto the pitch and have a good year in the premiership. I donít think the signings are over either.

Also very excited at these signings and loving the impact it is having on the rugby world - there were questions on twitter on whether or not we were breaking the salary cap which were hilarious!

Don't want to put a dampener on it but IF there is relegation and IF we were to go down next season would we expect these players to leave and essentially of had a 10 month stint at Irish?

Thrilled at this signing wondering if people would agree that Coleman is essentially our replacement for McNally in the second row? and if that means Albert is more liking to play six or seven next season in the prem. Though I must admit Id love to see Albert playing eight I fancy his chances charging down the blindside off the back of a scrum.

Fantastic recruitment. Would love to see a few final additions:

Goodrick-Clarke.
First choice lock. (Mafi?)
First choice 12.

As greedy as that is. Envious that Leicester acquired Noel Reid, think he'd have been great for us.

Happy with Hepetema at 12 personally. Stephenson or Rona are more than adequate 13s and then we have a host of solid back-ups. Back three and the back five of the pack for me take priority.

We were light on wingers going into this season so with McLean and Ojo departing, we are even lighter.

We have loader, Collins, Nahalo and Rona. Thatís not enough for the three competitons we are in. We have Williams and Fowlie who can cover but we need another I feel.

Iíd still a horrible beast of an 8 whoíll get us over the gain line. We have loads of flankers but theyíre not really the guys who will get you the extra few yards when you need them.

I like Hepetema too, but could do with another specialist 12 and might as well go for gold in terms of quality. Prefer Stephenson at 13, and the rest lean towards 13 or won't cut it in the premiership. Basically, a Hepetema injury would leave us very light.

Would also love a monster 8. An unknown Fijian or South African, maybe. Imagine discovering the next Bill Mata. Would be nice.

Agree completely on another 12.

I know it was mentioned above, but Johnny Williams coming back would be the perfect move for me. I don't know how realistic that is - I suspect if he does have a relegation release clause then he'll have other options further up the league. But would be a good re-acquisition.

I'd absolutely take Williams back. Could do with a few EQP signings now anyway

On another note I see that the club have put out a recap on Twitter of the signings made. I take that to mean they may be done with the high profile singings for the moment and that Mafi probably did fall through.

Will no doubt be proved wrong at 11am tomorrow though.

To be fair they did do a recap just after Kepu: [twitter.com]

Though yeah, now they've done Coleman and Naholo in consecutive days any other big international signing would have to be big, otherwise they would have announced them earlier in the week. Perhaps it's now ex-academy returners or something of the like? Gibson then Williams.

So they did.

I'm personally still hoping the very tenuous Botha rumour is true. Will surely be a lock signing at some point though, so interesting to see who it ends up as

 
Re: 10 new signings to be announced

My guess is they have announced the big top tier internationals this week and tomorrow will be the announcement of the season ticket deals. They will then follow-up with additional signings in due course, with these likely to be the next tier below. To be fair, as good as Mafi and Botha are, neither are "top tier internationals", so I wouldn't rule either out yet.

Now they seem to have the big ones done they'll leave the rest of this week signing free and then announce some more in batches next week (two per day perhaps). Still waiting for the signing of an attack coach.

Only one tier one international left if it's true that a. We were signing 10 and b. One dropped out.

However there's a few other rumours floating around such as the Richmond prop, Williams and a Pirate winger.

Given the club has stated season ticket info will now be next week I'm thinking we could have one more tomorrow.

I'm very pleased with the recruitment so far, some of us are still seeing gaps in the squad, so I would like to point out that our mid season signings seem to be way more successful in the past than end of season signings, although on a smaller scale, with the likes of Freddie Albert Terrance Arno Van Zyl and Ian Keatley. So I'm not that panicked at moment.

He did indeed play against us at home in our 1st Championship season, and I remember being amazed at his Huff-like size and power. If he can get to a good level of fitness sure he's worth a punt, depends what kind of character he is too.

Afternoon all, long time fan - first time posting.

All these signings remind me that when Big Joe Cokanasiga left last season it was described as a "season long loan". So surely he should be coming back to Irish? I realise the fact that there's no news about him coming back means that he's not, but I can't find anywhere where it said it was being made into a permanent move.

I mean, can you imagine a backline with Big Joe on one wing and Naholo on the other?!

No disrespect to WGC, who I am sure will be an excellent signing, but clearly not all signings are the same or deserve the same attention. Whilst, I agree that more could have been made of his arrival, the club clearly couldn't put out the sort of highlights videos it did for Naholo and Kepu.

Come on guys and gals, get fecking real, we have some incoming internationals that deserve the fanfare and there are others that need loud applause, but in due course can become club favourites - and there will be more announcements in the coming days! As a supporters base we should get behind the club and be more positive about what the board are achieving rather than moaning at every opportunity!

We won the championship!
We have so far signed 8 world class players!
We are signing many more players with the ability to develop and become similar!
We are signing / extending academy players!
We are soon moving in to our new world class home ground!
...not to mention we already have world class training facilities!

The club walks 3 steps forward but so many supporters drag us back 2 steps, why?

In the past if the club tried, some supporters moaned when it failed, now they are trying as hard as they can financially and making some bloody fantastic signings, so give them a chance!

If you have a problem, come and talk it out on a Thursday night at hazelwood.

Can we please stick to announcments about signings! I keep seeing "new" comment made on this thread and my excitement goes up and then i get tragically let down when its not a new signing announcement (yes i get the irony that this post is also not about a signing announcement) [:wor kid:]

I know we speculate about Ruan Botha, but does anyone know where Arno Botha is going as he joined Munster last year on a 1 year contract - i'd love to see him return?

Signed an extension

Funny thing is that many Munster fans don't really rate him very highly.

That's not like us to highly rate on of our own players but then that player not be rated highly by other clubs...

Until now, obviously

I'm one of the first in the 'we tend to overate our own players' gang, but Botha was genuinely outstanding and putting out league leading stats for the time he was with us in a poor team.

The more likely scenario is just that it was a purple patch and his form has settled for Munster.

Games I have seen he came on as a second half sub each time.

I think he was great and no one can persuade me otherwise.

Munster have lost their way a little bit, this seasons champions cup showed just how far behind theyíve fallen. They donít have the cash they used to so canít attract any more marquee signings. They punch above their weight but itíll be a while before they see another champs cup final. Itís a shame but the recession hit them hard as the donations dried up and we all know IRFU money goes straight to Leinster.

Hoping with Heyes not being in Tigers list of leavers that might mean he is 100% staying
