On a more serious note, I see that Gloucester and Bristol are involved in a year long babysitting deal with Sarries for three players, these clubs are the ones involved in duel registering players to Hartbury to ease the salary cap for injury cover I can only see the loop holes getting bigger.

Supposedly made contact over a loan for Nick Tompkins according to The Rick. Not sure how far we got with that.

don't see the logic in that one - will be unavailable for large parts of the season, though right position.

Not in our interest to do loans as we need to crest a permanent core rather then helping the cheats.

Callum Clark???
Just read as a potential leaver for saracens on the ruck with London irish as the club named.
Any ideas how true?

Clark would be an odd signing given we've got fairly decent back row resources (plus lots of prospects in the academy) and it probably isn't a priority area to reinforce unless we are losing one of our starters.

On a personal basis, I'd also be very much against signing him given his assault on Rob Hawkins a few years back which should really have resulted in a life ban.

He seems to be a bit of a thug, it may be that he has turned a corner as far as seeing himself as a bit of an "enforcer" and has grown up, but at 30 he seems to be a bit passed it, as Lazyboy said, being well stocked in that department doesn't make him a wish list topper.

Utter thug and we have better. No thank you

Agree with the above. The Hawkins incident was possibly the worst thing I've seen on a rugby pitch, and it's far from his only faux pas. Would be very disappointed to see him play for us.

I can't imagine any signings are getting made in the current circumstances? Or maybe some thrifty execs are scrambling to make signings during the uncertainty? Suspect it's the former, but you never know.

Totally forgot about that and hope he gets nowhere near our club.

Definitely not someone I want at our club. Thug.

I really hope we dont sign Clark never mind the "misfit brothers" we could be labelled the "asshole brothers" with the roster we are building

LI are described as the “misfit brothers” because they come from all over the world.

It's really sad that people are defined by their past mistakes. He was certainly a thug and an ar*ehole in his early career, now he's using those experiences to help young offenders.

It's a shame our main media outlets only really ever publish the negative stories (outside of match reports).

Misfit brothers are also an American Punk Rock band. [:wor kid:]
