What is his contract status? Is there any chance or likelihood he could be heading off elsewhere?

Might be wrong but I thought he was linked with Wasps. Definitely leaving us though.

I thought it was Northampton. But nothing official, which is surprising as I'm sure someone will pick him up and surprised it hasn't been done yet.

I thought that there was a post a few months ago stating that he was off to Wasps but pehaps it was another story from "rumour control".

Which of course has been the problem, it will be interesting to see if different coaches can unlock it or is it really all down to him and his attitude?

I've always thought it's more down to his genetic makeup. He's gangly and his centre of gravity is high. Great for the lineout, not very handy for much else. I really feel it's as simple as that.

I suspect you are correct.

If you look at the state of him after a match it isn't for want of effort. He gives everything he has, but I think he's just limited by his body type as being a line out forward primarily.

I see in the BBC article that Dai Young says that Matt Symonds is leaving and CM is a replacement but he doesn't say were Symonds is going. I guess he is waiting for Quins to make announcement but I guess we have bigger fish to fry at present

I think in the right pairing he will do really well.

Will certainly be interesting to see if he steps up in a new coaching system.

I haven't seen any development in Matthews' game in the last couple of years, but it's always hard to know if that's because he's reached his level, or because he's being coached badly.

Good luck to him either way.
