Rugby paper linking us with Samoan loose head Nephi Leatigaga currently with Biarritz.
Stone Genge and Lady Gaga in the front row. Now that would be worth seeing :smt041

What about Symons if Mafi doesn't come? Was on the fringe of the England reckoning a season or so back.

As in the Symons who has just left Wasps?

I’d happily take Symons, but it would mean one of Fitz or Kitchener leaving. Symons does seem more suited to the second row in the premiership than Fitzgerald. Fitz always looked more of a 6 in the prem, lacking a bit of grunt.

I'm hearing Symons to Quins is a done deal

For locks I would be alright with
Spencer, Mafi, Kitchener, Fitzgerald, Wells, as a main group for next season.

As I have said before rather we wanted and targeted a genuine World Class lock after the Rugby World cup than sign a Symons.

We’ve done alright in the later part of the season with Fitzgerald and Kitchener. Mafi and Spencer should be an upgrade on them both so going into next season we have stronger group of back 5 players.

I still prefer Fitzy at 6. Good work rate and carries better one out.

I’ve seen that LI and Wasps have anounced their leavers list? Wonder when we will see ours being published officially.

Not holding my breath that we'll get it any time soon.

I'm hoping we'll get it by pre-season but who knows.

Nick Malouf re-joining Aus 7's confirmed (the details in the article make the BBC seem accurate)

A shame, I think - given his inexperience in the full format I thought he did pretty well, and could have progressed further next season. Still, I can see why he’s made the decision to go back to 7s....I’d wish him good luck.

MoC saying in the LM that he's still looking at a frontrower and back 5 player. Mmmmmm back row looks good to me ,lock still needs one. Is he looking at a Brock,or am i reading too much into it? Mafi?

Unfortunately being old-fashioned, Tigers won’t announce anything until the Premiership is finished
