Looking at the squad, we seem to have replaced like for like the players who have left/retired with mainly younger/EQP players -
Vickers - Logo
Latu - Nagusa
Hogg - Collett/Graham
Lawson - McGuigan
VDM - Arscott
JPS - Williams

Others such as Willis and Mermoz have been replaced by promoting from within the academy with players such as Connon and Penny ready for first team duties

Now that the squad has been confirmed on the Offy, we have obvious depth as long as the academy players impress and and can hold their own when given their chance. I hope that players like Connon or Charlie Wilson aren’t making their debuts against the likes of Toulon. I know it’s worst case scenario but only one or two injuries would mean they wouldn’t be thrust into contention despite never playing in the Premiership

Losing experienced players such as Vickers, Hogg, Latu and Lawson gives others the opportunity to step up as part of the leadership group within the squad but maintaining the continuity within the squad

On the whole the team should be very similar to last seasons which performed so well unless we receive a late surprise
