We've announced the signing of Henry Taylor from Sarries, a 25 year-old scrum half.

Interestingly he cites the coaching staff and the grass pitch as reasons for the move!

Sarries rumoured to be signing Alex Day as a replacement for Taylor

Does anyone know if Charlie Davies is still with us next season? If so we'd have 4 senior scrum halves and Toops Jr which seems a lot.

Always liked Alex Day when he was with us but being in a specialist position he was very limited in his on pitch time. I saw him the other week playing for Pirates and thought he looked very sharp indeed.

The official link I saw about this signing mentioned he adds to our scrum halves for next season and didn’t mention Davies

The Chron & Echo report stated the following.."The move appears to signal that Charlie Davies will not be sticking around beyond the current campaign"

Merely a squad replacement then and not likely, barring injuries, to get many chances assuming Reinach is still with us next season.

Sarries fan in peace (as always). What you've picked up is a player with some good pace and an eye for gaps who looked like a really good prospect but was set back by a serious of nasty injuries. Seemed to put it behind him but the emergence of Tom Whiteley has meant even his game time in the Cup or off the bench in internationals has been very limited. Really want to see him do well, so hope he shows his full potential with you!

I would think it’s cover for the World Cup as well. Cobus will be away and there will be the cup and first part of the premiership to negotiate
So two experienced and one youngster?

May well suit your style of play. Quick, loves a break. Average pass. Weakest element of his game is kicking.

If Cobus doesn’t go to the World Cup it will be this cups travesty to match or top the Sam Burgess farce. I did see comment on here earlier this year from people far far better qualified than I to comment that Cobus may miss out on shall we say non rugby issues.

I was kind of hoping Conor T Would be our No. 3. I rate him. Might still be if course.

A shame he didn't say that there was something special happening at Saints and he wanted to be part of it. That would be a lovely bit of trolling...

Is there any substance to the rumours of Cobus to Irish by the way? Was mentioned as a throw away comment on Rugby Union Weekly pod when the lads were discussing players going to Irish. Was the last name mentioned hastily before they changed topic. The others were relevant, paddy Jackson, Sean O’Brien etc. Also tommy V posted a tweet today about an interview with cobus and maybe I’m being paranoid but there were a few questions relating to cobus’ future, including a line saying ‘Saints fans would love you to stay’ etc. It also indicated he had a year left on his contract, however, but an interesting rumour and would be gutted if there is truth to it.

I read the interview with Cobus, and for me it seemed like he was happy here and was settled. Would be shocked if he left before his contract ended, and surprised if he moved to LI afterwards.

Given he'll be up for Saints player of the season, and probably for Prem player of the season, we'd be mad to let him go!

Such awards didn't stop Picamole from leaving.

I think Louis’s circumstances were totally different. We will never know about how he felt working with what was a failing regime plus he was wanted back by his first club.

Having read the comment about Cobus and Irish with some concern I had a shufty on the Irish’s board. On their signings and rumours thread there is a comment that Jamie Gibson signed for them months ago but no signings are being announced until after the last game of the season.

And a huge difference in allowing someone to leave to play in a different league to playing for a rival. It won’t happen, he has another year and if he has another good one expect his contract financials to be upped accordingly to re-sign him.
