IF Worcester go down would like to see us try and poach Christian Scotland-Williamson.
I'd be surprised / disappointed if he hadn't appeared on our radar from his days at Loughborough Uni.
Happy days clearing straw from the pitch before the Baa-Baas games! KBO

Would be great but I reckon all of the top four and maybe even top 14 will be after him since he has been levelling people weekly :smt023
I wouldn't mind us acquiring Ryan Mills or re-acquiring Perry Humphreys either. Big fan of Mills he has a good all round game, likes to attack and doesn't lack physicality. Can play 10 and 12 as well.

How about Te'o and Heem!
That young bench lock is a prospect, needs to learn to play with a bit more control and could be a top player.
Look at us looting Wuss just a few games in! :smt005
I think Wuss will become more dangerous when Hougaard and Arr return.
I wouldn't want to be hanging around them in the league too close for too long anyway, they can only get better!

Te'o will be on pretty big money, I doubt we'd want to or could offer him similar whereas others in the league would.

Agree that Wuss will be delighted with Hougaard being dropped by the Boks. Given the extra space scrum half's are enjoying and his attacking instincts I can see him kick starting their attack up front and Mills was running the show well from 10 against Glaws. The LI vs Wuss dogfight might be back on.

Yes Te'o wouldn't be cheap no doubt but you know when you get that impression that a player would just be such a good fit for you and help take your team onto the next level, and I get that with Te'o!

If we were looking at Worcester players I wouldn't mind getting Kevin Bryce.

Simply a good hooker who does his basics well. Scrummages well and actually hooks, hits his line-outs and has very good range on his throw without losing accuracy.

We could do a lot worse if looking to strengthen depth and set-piece.

I just don't see what's wrong with getting Rizzo back and using Bateman as a hooker plus we've got the American kid too plus Thacker and TY and McGuigan and Kerr,how many hookers do we need?!
