As far as I am aware James Haskell has not committed a crime. He may have an ego, he may be a gob on a stick. So what? Nobody is asking the nay sayers to have him as a best mate.
You do not win over 70 caps for England and be a British Lion if you can't play. He has been signed so far for 1 year only, on reduced terms so for me, no big downside but potential huge up side.
I think a reality check is required, we came ninth and given a slightly different turn of events we could've been 11th. If it were not for Irish we would've been in a full blown relegation dog fight. Bristol are coming up and spending tons of money, they will be a different kettle of fish.
First and foremost we need to make sure we are not in danger of going down before we move on. Ambitions of top 4 again are pie in the sky at the moment. If it happens, great. I do not believe We could get a player of Haskell's quality for the apparent price and only for one year.
Also with regard to Boyd, he appears top class give the man a chance. Even he won't turn it completely around overnight.Perhaps we need to manage expectations.
