Rob Cook signing very odd - lots of cover at 15. And Tommy Bell looks an excellent place kicker as is Macloed. Don't see the gain here.
Great to see Danny sign. A risk - but if we are to break into top 4 in next 2 seasons, we have to take risks.

I think its clear that if Cipriani is at 10 then whoever is at 15 will be required to kick penalties and conversions.
No they won't, as Cipriani is a good goal kicker (Sm154)

Suppose, but the same could be said about any kicker.
I know it's a while ago, but in that game vs Ireland, he had a 100% kicking rate, on his first international start, and was preferred over Flood (who was starting 12) and then still kicked when Wilkinson came on.

yes but with the better ones you say it more often than not. your just giving isolated examples olyy. what I can say is that irish game he was flying, full of confidence. would like to see games were what he tries doesn't come off, as it sometimes doesn't, and nail his penalty goals.

the wasps fans are clear that he was somewhat hit and miss when he played for them and that Walder always took on the kicking duties when they were both on the field. not sure if thats true but certainly what I have read.

don't get me wrong, good signing, potentially brilliant signing but I am yet to be convinced that he can be our clutch kicker. time will tell.

disagreed with me!

What's clutch ever done wrong to deserve a kicking?
