shipwrecked - I am writing about the young backs we have brought through the academy and who have been successful in a Bath shirt. The intake is always good but we don't develop these guys into top quality players. That is the problem.

When was the last time we developed a star 9 or 10 from a junior age? Maybe Gareth Cooper who last played for us in 2002? We rely on taking in young backs from places like the Irish academy and then bringing in older players whose best years are behind them like Priesland, Chudley and Roberts. Let's bring on players of our own and combine them with top quality signings of players in their prime.
