Is he? Charles won a handful of caps during a dreadful period for Aussie hookers.

His 83 Super Rugby caps possibly more impressive.

I get the impression that it would not matter who the club signed, he would not be of the right quality and we would have taken too long to announce it!!! Without seeing either play yet for their new sides, I will give Mayhew a chance. Charles (International he may be, does not seem to have played much rugby recently, just a short spell with Clermont and Bath last season).

(and I am not a JK in, Quins can do no wrong kind of bloke, just need to see how both pan out first).

He's played as much rugby as Bothma..........

My point is quality is out there and available as Wasps are proving with their 2 recent signings. The answer doesn't have to be the Championship.

We are not talking about Bothma though.

I agree that there is quality out there, but just because a player is a "big name" does not mean he is the right choice. Charles has hardly played recently, Wasps have not signed a superstar current aussie international. He was injury cover at Bath last year.

he may also have already have been in the process of being signed up by Wasps so not available to us.
Don't forget there are other things to consider when signing injury cover, e.g. the experience must be comparable or less than the injured player, salary comparable of less than the injured player. So we can't just go an bring in a big name to cover an injury.

Not if you watched them. There's a reasonable amount of Aussie forwards with lots of super rugby caps who aren't much cop.

He's about the same standard as our injury joker from a little while back, Beau Robinson. Same sort of profile. I'm sure he'll fill a shirt for them but he's not exactly top quality.

I guess time will tell if experienced soup hooker is better than surplus to requirements champ hooker.
