He is in contract still so would have to be brought that is if Glous are willing to let him go.

So, assuming Pietersen and Betham were two of our bigger (non marquee) earners, you'd have to think their exits leave a decent pot of cash with which to go shopping.
As much as the upheaval isn't ideal, I am actually quite pleased that the managemt are being so decisive and working to shape the squad as they want, rather than just make do and try again next summer.

Totally agree - there must be a lot of wriggle room now within the cap for 2 or 3 top signings - again the rumour out here in NZ is that Fekitoa is on his way to Europe. Didn't over impress me in the Lion's game but had received a bang to the head early on
Hehehehehehehehe

Let's hope so. It's not like we would get rid of all of our players in one position In one fell swoop and then forget to replace them is it?
Seriously, though, I will wait and see with interest. I have jumped to conclusions about signings before and been massively wrong. Goneva, Slater, Thompstone (and Fonua for opposing reasons).
It's just possible that coaches and scouts might be a better judge than I :smt002

Apparently we're looking at Mark Wilson, Falcons back row. If Lachy is off to make way for Wilson, I'd be...
Just remembered my last post!

Mark Wilson is under contract for another year. Allegedly, we're interested in him after that - not this season.

Mark Wilson is one of the best back rowers in the premiership for me...was brilliant for Falcons for the last couple of seasons and scores tries...England should of looked at him a lot sooner I would be very happy with him :smt023

After dispensing with Betham and Pietersen we sign Dominic Ryan and now Gareth Owen its clear we have a coherent masterplan to get back to the top of english rugby.

Why not wait till start of season before bemoaning signings.

Or do you really think that Ryan and Owen are coming from Betham and Pietersen's cap space?

Do not know where you get that notion from and I will bemoan any signings if and when I want to. I have no idea how much we are paying Ryan and Owen other than to say that money is now spent.

So why mention Betham and JPP with Ryan and Owen if that wasn't the notion you where leading to?

Not like they are like for like signings in terms of positions.



Although on paper it does look very much like another pointless journeyman signing.
