Good stuff. Hopefully he can stay injury free.

I was gong to ask why it's taken so lng to announce, then in the blurb it says they couldn't announce sooner due to medicals and admin stuff.

Without being a downer, I do hope he is actually fit

Why do we keep signing injury prone players?



If at first you don't succeed, Try, Try and Try again.

Great news, welcome...

But I echo Sam Quin: Next time, wear a Quins shirt to the photoshoot!

Good player if fit.

We're still short a lock though.

So the people running the clubs website are incapable of airbrushing a quins shirt onto a player, or just showing his face. I know its trivial in the scheme of things but it just about sums up the sloppy attitude shown throughout the club.

Airbrushing a shirt onto a player is called faking a picture. Credibility gone.

And while (as recently posted) the website does have some big problems, that's a silly criticism, it happens all the time.

Forget the picture. The biggest concern is the following:

"The 28-year-old lock, who joined Wasps from London Irish in the summer of 2016, only featured five times in all competitions this season.[u][/u]"

I sitll think Wasps have had the raw end of the deal here, swapping him for Matthews, 5 games or not.

Photoshopping a fabric item of clothing onto a photo is not the work of a minute, and would look terrible unless done by someone fairly skilled in digital image composition (=expensive). Does it really matter?

Seems like now JK has gone and we have an exciting and capable HoR coming in, some posters are looking to rip into the club on all kinds of minutiae around their copywriting, website content, social media, photography...

...we're surely only days away from posters calling for DE's resignation because the address was misaligned to the envelope window on their renewal letters. I mean, how can we achieve DE's stated aim of being the biggest and best rugby club in the world if we're sloppy about stationery!?! (Sm16)

I don't. Mathews was a good player of used properly. I don't think we ever did. Think of him as the replacement for Danger and he was fine, what we packed was the replacement for Olly Kohn.

I think what people forget is when Olly Kohn joined us he was broken, neck/shoulder as I recall and had played only a few games in the previous 18 months.

He turned out OK shame Wales broke him in the end he had few more years in him I think

D-Quins

He was a success, for sure. But with Jackson, Bothma etc etc, we seem to be throwing the dice a lot.

Me, apparently - I was thinking of the appalling way his ACL injury was repeatedly misdiagnosed but uh it was his shoulder that made him retire, and he injured that in the captain's run before a game against France.

Oops. Sorry all.

Bit of an unnecessarily aggressive response to D-Quins. Seems like every thread on here at the moment has to get aggressive or abusive. I thought it was the injury he got with Wales that caused it. Apologies for the ignorant shite.

It was.

And I don't think you are the one who needs to apologise.

I'm sorry. I was in drink.

However, I do find the expression "broke him" when a player gets injured very irritating and that's what actually piqued me at the time.
