He'll definitely be the big ball carrying backrow option to replace Picamoles they need :smt005

Quality player but with Wood and Gibson that's three players who specialise in disrupting at the breakdown and no real power game.

Mitch Eadie was impressive in a struggling Bristol side last season, he is not Picamoles but could well have much more to come in a better Saints team.

Dan carter's current deal expires at the end of the season, so as it stands Piutau will be the highest paid player for the 18/19 season.

He's a good signing and he punches above his weight but at 16 stone (Saints website) he's not going to be a big impact off the back of the pack.

He is a good signing.
I'd liken him to Luke Hamilton who I also rate.
The big bosher didn't quite work for them so it'll be interesting to see how the dynamics of their side blend.
They have a lot of enforcer types so he could often be freed up to do what he is very good at.

I think the big boshers (Manoa and Picamoles) have worked for them.

And Picamoles singlehandedly kept them in with a chance. They were for the most part garbage last season bar him,they have the players but like Cockers West and Voldemort have gone stale now.
