That rumour seems a lot more realistic unfortunately

There's a bit of a party atmosphere around Bath this afternoon - but you wouldn't get that at Leicester if we finished ninth." Richard Cockerill 7/5/16

Does that mean Cips is going in the other direction? Wouldn't much fancy lining up against Cips at 10 and Flood at 12!

Flood isn't a 12 he's looked very exposed there for Tolouse in Europe.

Sale looking to combine Pearce and Beaumont, that's a scary thought.

Willis should be looking to stay at Falcons and get game time he's still young and has got himself into their ten shirt on form. He'd be fourth choice here and we should be developing our own youngsters that far down the pecking order.

Cipriani is according to Fissler looking at Quins or abroad...

Sad to see Bath are going to sign Underhill that guy is going to be a star..

Would be sad to see Pearce go he has really impressed me this year but obviously will struggle to be first choice here..

Willis could be a canny signing as we are going to struggle to keep both Freddie and Owen.

Would be hugely surprised if Pearce went to Sale, he stated hes been a Tigers supporter his entire life and it was his dream to play here, He could easily be our starting 8 next season with Crane looking out of favour and Fonua being perpetually injured.

Underhill to Bath would be a surprise and might explain whats going wrong down there, they already have Louw, Garvey, Houston, Denton, Mafi, Mercer and Fa'osiliva in the back row and Faletau next season, last thing they need is to recruit more back row players

Wouldn't be surprised to see Denton released early given how poor he's been. Mercer is probably set for an exit as well.

Depends I guess if
1) Bell is going
2) Toomua is going to be used soley @ 12.
3) What Owen Williams long term viewpoint esp with "Gatlands Law" *(what ever that is)

In terms of developing our youngsters I agree but our next Youngster @ 10 is Umaga who is only 17 (Bryant can play 10 but he is a 12 IMO).

Would be a nice signing but IMO it is just getting so more money on the contract.


If Denton was to get released I honestly wouldn't mind us going for him.

I don't think he suits Bath's style (Which ATM is hope for the best type of rugby).

IMO we need a ball carring finishing 8 as our lack of tries from the 5M line seem to suggest.

NOW Fonua SHOULD be that but we can't tell until he is fit again, Hopefully this time out injured means he should be very fit (Or at least trimmer) and it looks like he has stayed in Leicester which is a good sign in terms of Conditioning.

Although it seems like it is becoming a regular thing with Bath ATM throwing the speculative pass/offload and it not coming off.

Difference between this season and last is that last season they were coming off this season not so much.

Also have no idea why he is being played @ 6 TBH.

I think Denton is a player that fits playing in a more structured game plan @ 8 IMO.

Like Wladrom now would fit our back row so would Denton IMO.


(This would be if Pearce was to go)

Keith Earls to Saracens maybe...

Would be a huge loss for a club who must now be asking questions as to what is happening...although it does say for family reasons
