He can help run the massages at the Spa!

More realistically, I wonder if they have employed him as the team doctor, thereby saving a salary!

Seriously though, from what I have read he is still studying for his MPhil at Cambridge. Or is that old news and he can do it with distance learning?

Yes he ticks many boxes with regards to experience and possibly acting as a defence opener and wrecker, but his lack of pace and a kicking game doesn't make him an ideal 12 IMV. He is a better distributor and tackler than Banners and obviously a better centre, filling the gap of a big ball carrier lost with MB going to Glaws.

And I do think Annie is right, with his pedigree, about putting bums on seats and attracting sponsors which we desperately need in the coming 2/3 years.

I suppose as not many of us thought this move was on, it has come as a surprise. If we can get him working with his fellow backs and he stays fit, it might be the man we and Todd has been looking for.

Welcome Jamie and I reserve judgement to see what effect he has on the team next season.
