Does anybody know if he's more of a 12 or 13?

Cool. Most likely him at 12 and Roberts at 13 for the rest of the season then.

Steady on Tigercaspian slap wrists and axe wounds occur when talking about Northamptonshire Police! Knowing our luck the Citroen has broken down & injured Mermoz already. :smt023

Yes it's officially now confirmed that he is a tiger player at least until the end of this season with an option to renew for further seasons. My sources say that he should be in Leicester on Monday and as far as I know he's not required for the French National team so he should be available for the Gloucester match a week on Saturday, He can play both central positions , wing and on some occasions he has played at 15, but he prefers No. 12.

[My bold] Did I miss this? I thought he was a definite to join Falcons for the next 3 seasons. Do we really have an option for his services going forward?

Strawclearer my sources say that the talk of a possible 3 year contract with the falcons starting this summer was exactly that, just talk. Nothing concrete has been decided just the current deal with the Tigers. I've also been given to understand that it wasn't only the Falcons who held talks with Maxime.

I likewise, was told by my pal in the media that it had been assumed that he had signed for Falcons,he indeed has not AS YET! He is though expected to do so.

IF, and it's a huge if, next season we have Toomua, Manu, Veainu and JPP fit (plus the likes of Betham, Thompson etc.), isn't that a huge chunk of salary spending taken up by the backs? While more than happy to have Mermoz as well, would spending on the forwards suffer as a result of having Mermoz?

Yes Dunks 43, my source rang me a couple of hours ago to say that he left home yesterday and apologised for giving me some duff info. Now happily settled at Tigers.
