Ghiraldini to Leinster are the latest rumours in Italy. Note that the comments below link us to Loamanu (as mentioned before in this thread) and Rizzo from Treviso.
I believe I read on this forum that Rizzo was a Lady - Well lets belatedly get a Ladies team going as well particularly the way they played at Twickenham. - Bring it on !!!
That gives us yet another Team for the non believers to criticise. :smt045

I think both parties are happy, we've got rid of a couple of players who haven't fitted in as well as they could have and Worcester have got a known fly half and a 'good' prop to cover their injuries.
....and who possibly will do quite well in The Championship.
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

Rizzo would fit - we're definitely going to be in the market for front line props with Stankovich and maybe Schuster off.

Loamanu also mkes sense as cover for Niki leaving - but he could also be the bruising 8 we're after... depends where we want him.

If dan goes then Campagnaro would be a great signing but if he didn't then do we really have space? It would be him and Loamanu for my money.

Also Leinster would be astrange call - they already have Strauss and Cronin - a 3rd test hooker may not be on the agenda.

Harry Wells has joined Bedford Blues for the rest of the season on loan. Anyone know what this guy is like?

He is a very very good young talent.

Plays Lock and 6, potentially he could be up they with Croft and Mafi in terms of talent.

And for those of us outside the distribution area of the Bedford Times & Citizen, here's the proof.
Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.

I'd love for him to reach the level of a Croft or Mafi although I personally see him as more of a Brett Deacon type player. He might never play for England or the Lions but he could be a very useful player. From what I've seen he doesn't lack anything physically although he will probably end up at 6 because he isn't the tallest. He could be a very good player for us in the future if he can get past our current 6's. With Croft, Mafi, Gibson and Matera to an extent he might find it difficult to get game time.

I reckon he could go to quins.

Kelmat, Burns has pretty much all been confirmed as coming.

Didn't Cockers let it out the bag recently & I'm sure I heard Simon Cohen doing the same on RL!

No relation to John, if that is what you are suggesting, but is a local lad. Harry's Ma & Pa posted on the unoffy a couple of times a while back - http://www.rugbynetwork.net/boards/read ... 6,13797859
