Nalaga, didn't he break his arm? PDP and Franks are regulars, Luke Mclean did under perform at the begining of the season but was playing to early, probably because of injuries to the centres, you are right about Shontayne and Coventry a big well done to you! But maybe we had a few dodgy signings in the 70's you can dig up, to validate this optimistic view.

I think you've missed the point.

Probably, just thought you were trying to name some poor recruitment tendencies of ours, again.

My thoughts on Haskell are, although to most people, we would be lucky to have him, I would rather have Arlo, in as much that Haskell is coming to the end of his career, does not fully understand the laws (Italy) and we would need to strengthen the squad (spend money) in other areas.

So you prefer someone that has played against wasps kids + invitational and an understrength Cardiff Blues side to someone that has been playing in a side that's been top of the league for a few years now? Interesting choice.

As to Haskell not knowing all the laws, specifically the Italian no ruck; show me someone that did. He'll, even Connor and Venter didn't understand it fully, hence they had to adjust it after having a meeting with the ref. The sad fact of the matter is it wouldn't have been an issue at all had Eddie attended the ref meeting. They would have either said what they were planning and EJ would have warned his team and instructed how to counter or they wouldn't have raised it and would have got pinged off the park.

For the record, I like the look forward Arno, he seems the real deal but let's see how he gets on against tougher opposition before labelling him the Messiah. Also, let's remember that he and PvZ are both on short term deals and both may decide they're not keen on the club / league at the end of the deal.

My feeling is I do prefer Arno, because he's here and seems to be playing okay all be it against weak sides, he would not cost as much, I think that Haskell is a fine player at the wrong end of his career but comes across as a Jonny big Potatoes ready to show the torso at the drop of a hat, the reason I mentioned the Italy game was in my minds eye I can see him on a refcam along with Hartley asking the official what to do, true not many knew what to do, but he, along with Hartley came across (to me ) that little bit worse, now Launchbury knew what to do and if he (in another universe) was coming to us, there would be no bickering from myself.
