After a season out at 32 a season in the championship will probably be ideal for him and us tbh and unlikely to go to the world cup now unless others get injured.

Good news !

We missed his scything breaks through themiddle of the pitch!

Goods news to hear this.

In fact it sounds now like bar those announced as already leaving...we are keeping most of the others. Combine them with the new signings and the academy lads..i have hope.

Good to see a bit of loyalty after a season out. He will probably enjoy the coming season

Is Ah You definitely staying? If so that is massive. He will be dominant in the Championship.

We look strong in the lock and flanker department also with the return to fitness of Sean Robinson and Will Welch and our additions (despite losing some good guys) along with our options at 8 makes it a very, very strong pack.

With a fit Joel and co in the back line it could be an exciting watch.

Thereís a lot to be positive about folks!!

As long as we don't employ the kick kick kick tactics....

The kick kick tactics donít bother me to be honest GF.....itís the poor execution we need to work on.
At times last season our decision making and execute of it was nothing short of pathetic.
It can be aa effective tactic when executed properly and at the right time.
As Saracens prove week in week out.

Last year I watched in disbelief as our winger got caught in a ruck, a second rower moved to cover the wing, and Michael put up a box kick. The lock ran for all his worth and was about 30 yards short when the opposition caught the ball. We were not a thinking team last year.
