Good signing that. I've always thought he's a bit of a beast! So long as they can sort his neck problems out and get him fighting fit, then we've got a good'un there methinks. Particularly with the Lay brothers away at the RWC.

Supporting Bristol since... since... Oh, not enough fingers.

I was very surprised They let him go tbh.

I remember him playing against Bristol last season and he had his shirt ripped off his back after destroying our scrum.
He's definitely a futuristic prop with that build.

Given that Clermont-Ferrand haven't taken him on because of his neck problem I do hope that neither he nor us are taking a risk

As he was a short term RWC joker signing at Clermont, maybe the injury was also shortish term but risky for their needs. No doubt we will see.

Just to clear things up if anyone is worried about past or on going injury.

I don’t doubt it...but I find it interesting that they seem to discriminate between ‘he’s good to go’ and ‘he’s good to go in the UK’.
Presumably France has different criteria for what constitutes a serious neck injury. Maybe from a legal point of view, at a guess.
