There is a rumour circulating which I have yet to have confirmed that Mermoz has
signed and he will be at Welford Road on Saturday but not in a playing capacity as the tie with Glasgow as we know is a European Champ cup fixture and the rules say that anyone registered as a player cannot play for another club in the same season in European fixtures with the possible exception of the final. So let's wait and see.
Is this another of the "Try Line Club Tales" as Mermoz is apparently in the Toulon 23 playing at Saracens kick off @ 15:15, whereas our game is 17:30 KO. Having played, showered etc Mermoz would not make Welford Road either on a Noddy Bike or in Noddy's car, but if you are confident then save him a few prawn french bread batons.
We would not need him registered in this years Euro squad as we are already out!!
Nodders please read the posts, I said Mermoz is "Apparently in the 23" based on a previous posting, BUT you rumored that Mermoz was going to be at Welford Road too despite him in the squad - probably not if he is still tied to Toulon, mind you keep him a prawn baton he may he your guest in the Try Liners.
