Most likely someone signing on for another year.

That said, its possible that the money we will have from North has been spent and we might have something to be excited about.

One likely to be Marcel Brache who played for the Stormers and plays for America.

He was with Nic Groom/tweets him last night at the game.

Or Ofc could be pure coincidence and iam doing 2+2=5 LOL

Would be an interesting signing Neil. Another Centre / Wing. Albeit not highly prolific for the Force, 30 years old. Scored 3 tries in 37 apps for Force, and that was a first half hat trick after 30 odd games. Iíve no idea what position he usually plays there though.

Remember that much of Georges Money needs to go to pay back the loan?

Kevin the Kitman's contract must be up for renewal soon......

Or maybe it's the leasing contract on his Kitmobile?

It wouldn't surprise me if Marcel is on a trial rather than signing him up now, unless he's been with us for a while.

Am I right in thinking that Hartley and Lawes signed new contracts around this time in 2014? I'd imagine they were both on 3 year deals.....

I'd be happy if they've both signed on again.

How about Ross Moriarty or is he ineligible for some reason??

Must be Lawes. Considering his form, he will be hot property. Patterson as well? I think his deal expires and he's been playing well.

Ok. Wouldn't have really thought they would move on if I'm honest so I would say expected news.

Alex until 2021 and Haywood until 2020. Is the club reversing its policy of not publically stating contract lengths now?

Happy with that, though I do think Waller needs to be given more of a rest so we can get the best out of him. It's not like we haven't got a Fijian international we could swap into the starting shirt from time to time, for instance.... thumbs down

Mine too given I thought it was a year ago, not a few months!

Solid club men who give their all. Good (but not earth shattering) news

Poor defence, poor ball player, probably expensive, average rugby brain and one dimensional in attack. We should look to Horne, Hutch and Stephenson for the centres.

Can we have a sticky thread with all the contract lengths that come up on it
That way it stops half the guess work that goes on.

I know Gloucester had of on their thread.

The BBC are reporting it will be Alex's 150th consecutive league game on Friday (if picked (Sm100)).

Good news for Alex and Mikey - well done to them both. Wallers achievement (150 consecutive) is pretty remarkable in itself and based on 3 more years that could easily be 200 consecutive games..

Mikey is a great stand in for Dylan and will see more and more game time over the coming years I am sure.


Congrats to both.

Marcel Brache? Donít rate him, would clog up local talent IMHO. Iím sure heís a good lad just going on resource allocation.
