THen all we have to do is concentrate on getting the forwards right, Incidentally does anyone know how soon Veianu and Petersen will be back?
A month-ish for each. Not too bad considering the next few weeks are a dead rubber and the Who Cares Cup.

After the timing of last weeks announcements of re-signings, expect something on Wednesday
Why Wednesday?

After the rumours of Magic Monday today...
I'll try to explain.
There were rumours of a magic Monday last week.
Then, we got announcements on Wednesday.
This might happen again.
I find your lack of faith......disturbing.

"He's one of the players we are interested in" Aaron Mauger on target Maxime Mermoz.

Seems like nothing is settled and, currently, he's only being considered as a solution to this season's injury problems...

Is it going to be Sh.. Saturday all round? What price we end up with Tom Arscott on a gagging contract? :smt004

Perhaps not??????? Martin Gillingham has tweeted this today;-

Immediate move of @MaximeMermoz1 from @RCTofficiel to @LeicesterTigers taken a bit of a twist. France centre is in Toulon squad for Saturday
Without hope we are nothing, keep the faith, a Tiger for eternity

Why does this seem to be an echo of recent attempts to sign Top players? Gazumping seems to have taken over negotiations big time, love to know exactly what the wage bill is for some of these clubs!

Unless he's travelled with the squad as they'd only have to buy a one way ticket?

I had it on good authority a deal was signed. This could be interesting.

All just speculation at this point though.
