I thought the club had a possible half open door for Faleafa and Brighouse in November?

Yes, this is what I recall RW mentioning at the most recent forum.

I notice Robbie Povey was amongst the players out and about in the city centre this afternoon. He's not mentioned on the playing squad section of the website, it looks pretty up to date with the new signings included. I think he played some matches for Sale FC in NL1 last season.

It would be awesome if someone could add the players who also remain at the club in the 2nd or 3rd year of their contract to complete the full picture. Thanks!

Ah yes. Started off putting them in all their positions. Changed my mind as it is a bit unwieldy to say the least, so took them out again. Obviously overlooked Nile.
I was going a bit cross-eyed by that point...

Good luck to Tony, and all the very best to him. Being dual registered, does this mean he may be called upon for A games if required by by his parent club?

Jonas Mikalcius Starts on the wing on Saturday, do we know what a ‘short term arrangement’ is? Is that to fill in for Purdey until he’s back or is it a season long deal?

I don’t think we know any more than the words you’ve quoted, but my immediate thought was the same as your first idea.

He's been recruited as backup to our 2 LHs, so I don't think it's a problem that he pops back to Saints for A games. Useful for retaining match fitness and continuing his development if he isn't a regular starter for us.

He was DR'd with Blues at the later end of last year and you may find he will be more than just a back up for your 2 LH's. Bedford were hoping to have him again this year, but Coventry offered more £'s.

Jonas Mikalcius signed for London Scottish last week. I noticed in TRP this morning he scored two tries for them yesterday, and had a look on the LS website.
