Does anyone think Kruis might feel threatened at Saracens and could move? He’s got Isiekwe, Itoje and now possibly Kpoku in his way. No wonder Brian Tuilagi moved he had no chance!

Not for me,Kruis is still a very good player and Krutoje is still there best partnerships. Iseikwe can play 6 too.

From an England point of view I’m really happy to have Ashton back. Class finisher who we could’ve done with in SA.

Finishing wasn’t a problem on tour.

No but we had to play Brown on the wing because Jones didn’t rate the other options.

Strange that Daly played on the wing in the 6N and seemed to play significantly well enough to then get pushed to fullback for the SA tour. Very strange

Adriaan Strauss will hang up his boots at the end of the season, a great player for both the Boks and the Bulls.

Imagine the uproar if we signed cashton, he wouldn’t be cheap and people would be fuming that sort of wedge was spent on a winger and not the forwards.

Happy for England that he’s coming back to the premiership. However, we have Holmes who looks class at premiership level with a great finishing record.

May is a great finisher, TV can score from anywhere, Thompstone has ever been the reliable option for us, Owolofela looks like a great prospect, Aspland-Robinson I don't enough about but there's options on the wings there, more than enough to serve our needs next season.

If we've got cash to splash than I'd prefer additions to the front five, particularly prop.

No I don't. You'll have to enlighten me. Our backline looks one of the best in the league.
