Who’s Edwards the new 2nd row! I must have missed that one
BJ Edwards, played in one A League fixture but I’ve seen him on players social accounts so one could assume that he has signed a short deal or something like that
IIRC that was around the time we signed Voss, so I don't know hold long term it was. Edwards is a 22-23 year old Aussie.

Great work once again, RagingBull, but is there the possibility of Fitzgerald leaving too?

Shaun Knight scares the **** out of me!
Surely we'd only sign him if he agrees to play for free, and pays a fine for every penalty he gives away. That might help the club break even next year :smt002

Leatigaga looks like a great replacement for Logo if we can get him locked in.

Where is Voss rumored to be off to?

According to people on facebook Ged Glynn went over to sign him last Wednesday but they couldn't agree terms so he's not coming.

A quick google search, highlights video etc, looks like a Ben Tameifuna type prop. Looks like he plays loose or tight head, very much like a raw Mulipola replacement.

Need to replace Logo, and also Rizzo (assuming he goes), so two props required. Don't think we need to replace Traynor, Betts and Baumann, utilise Grahamslaw and Heyes. Players like Bateman and Mulipola (and Leatigaga) who can play both sides help our flexibility within the squad.

Shaun Knight posted on twitter today:

"Massive thanks to all @bathrugby been a great 2 seasons in the 🔵⚫️⚪️ met some great characters and some good friends. A bonus point win in my home town will be my last memory of the club, great way to finish. Thanks everyone, now for a new adventure in july" - which he followed with the French flag.

I think people have made up that Voss is leaving, he has only just arrived!!
