Noticed Ben Sowrey playing for Yorkshire Carnegie - thought he was outstanding but retired through injury?! Also I appreciate Davey Wilson isn’t with us anymore but does anybody know where he is?

My understanding is Davey is studying to be a physio

Hi Andy Mac,

This falls into the usual category which we annually get criticised for. And yes, it's frustrating. Out of my hands, unfortunately.

Out of curiosity, and of course no obligation to answer, but is it the player, the DoR, the owner that makes these calls?

Hi Andy, I'll plead the fifth on that one, but rest assured it's a subject I raise every year.

No worries.

As supporters, we always want a chance to send a player off with good wishes, but clearly you know that already!
