As an 8 and 13/Winger seem pretty :censored: crucial.

Manu is always injured/on international duty and if Betham (god forbid) got crocked as well then we really are up sh*t creek.
Not often we agree, but IMO Betham, not Manu, is the key to our centre attack.
Leicester Tigers 1995-
Nottingham 1995-2000
Swansea (Whites) 1988-95
A game played on grass in the open air by teams of XV.

Any news on where to? On loan or on 'permanent' with buy back clauses in their deals?

Last I'd heard their contracts had been expired and not renewed for whatever reason.

Heard similar, although told a couple of reasons why it might be the case.

Ditto. Ultimately, all we see is the brief appearances the academy lads play on the field. We aren't ultimately aware of what happens day to day and other things that may affect their time at the club.

I have heard a rumour that we have an unannounced, big name 15 coming. No names given but strong rumour.
As news goes, that's pretty lame but tantalising.

PS Something very loose about Horacio Agulla returning too

Tim Nanai-Williams??

That is a big name tbf. So big you'd struggle to put it on the back of a shirt.

Tim Nani-williams is out of contract i believe, Scarlets and Cardiff after which we should be able to match or beat.

Seems a bit odd to leave an announcement so late. Unless the deal sin't completed yet that is

Some players might not want the announcement to be made whilst they are still playing for a team or want to focus on internationals etc.

I must clarify that I plucked him out of the air as the full back with the biggest (i.e. longest) name. There is absolutely no substance to him joining us.
