Off too Ealing it's a bit of a worry that all our players leaving or rumoured to leave are in the front 5

Was always going to struggle for game time with coleman, botha and franco ahead of him. I'm sure he'll thrive at ealing

Bit sad the club haven't mentioned anything yet

Club said they would not announce leavers, that was left to the personally or their next club announcing. That was Declan Kidneys policy

Oh, wow. That's a dreadful policy.

I understand the policy and appreciate the respect it shows to the players. Maybe at beginning of July the club can announce the squad for next season and then with our powers of deduction we will know who has left

They've wished him luck on Twitter after it was announced.

Not sure there's much more than that expected really.

Shame, he would have been good to keep, but I'm guessing there's a bit of a squeeze on middle earning squad players and Ealing could perhaps offer a longer contract and the opportunity of more rugby.

Can someone remind me why Ealing canít win promotion at the end of next season? Is there some technical reason or is it simply an assumption that Saracens will dominate the league?

Sarries will win that league just like we did and Falcons this year. Ealing are nowhere near Prem side and sooner this is recognised and we either ring fence or inject money to the championship and make it pro the better. Even before the financial RFU collapse the first option was always the most likely now it must be a racing certainty

I thought Franco announced he was leaving too on the supporter Zoom chat.

Hear hear!

Yes, Franco did announce he was off on the forum. Another thing we learned there was that the club has furloughed all but 4 members of staff (Brian Facer, Declan Kidney and two others) which would explain the lack of effusive info on leavers.

Is there a policy of not announcing signings as well as leavers?
