Yet you were happy to wish for Tuilagi.... go figure.
Tuilagi is currently a Premiership player
You could have fooled me.
He is at a current Premiership club. The names Scott11 picked aren't.

As Manu has hardly played for us, that's why I picked him.

I didn't think it was that hard to understand!

On current form we could wish for and get any 15 top players from the Premiership and still get stuffed, we already have the players we just do not have the gumption, and that comes from the top, the board were not happy when RC was winning stuff as it was not Champagne rugby!
Now we are playing stale brown ale rugby!
The board is where the confusion emanates from, not from the players.

I would also consider Nick Isiekwe, young strong, keen and aggressive not to mention a superb player who is learning fast
I do like Nick, but I'd prefer an established head.

Nick, IMO, could go very far.

Obviously, it was.

Ok, so not currently in the prem, but they are still playing, so would love to see Eben Etzebeth or Sergio Parisse added to our squad and if I'm being greedy I'd have both! Think either would add more grunt and aggression to our pack atm

Sergio is a legend, but getting on now - if you're going to pick a No8, and an EQ one at that, then Billy is your man. All day long.

TBH sarries will struggle to keep, Itoje, Kruis, Skeleton, Isiekwe and Day IMO.

Also have another lock coming up called Kpoku (i think).
Not sure whether you mean Skeletor - a fictional character and the primary antagonist of the Masters of the Universe and the archenemy of He-Man or Will Skelton - the New Zealand-born Australian rugby union footballer of Samoan descent who currently plays for Saracens.

I'd settle for either! (Or Launchbury, Lawes and I wonder whether Josh Beaumont might push on this season?)

Would have taken Skeletor a few years back, but not now he's sold out to moneysupermarket.com - just another wannabe celebrity.

What about Ben Stokes?

He knows what to do with a ball.
