Toby Faletau has broken the same arm again and is out the 6N!
What is it with number 8s and broken arms. Big loss for Bath apparently he was on fire at the weekend
That's easy for Gatland he will obviously pick Ken Owens now for 6N @ No.8 as he was also on fire at the weekend.

Wasps confirm that Willi le Roux will leave the club at the end of the season.

"Wasps can today confirm that Nathan Hughes and Willie Le Roux will be leaving the Club at the end of the season.

Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said: “It’s always disappointing to lose players of such quality but this is professional sport and there isn’t much you can do about it. There are a number of factors that play a part in players’ decisions to move on and unfortunately these guys have opted to move onto pastures new for 2019/20."

Wonder if he has a relegation get out clause...Luatua and Hughes is some 6/8 combo that is for sure

So with a new No.8 coming in, then I wonder if Jordan Crane will move up to Cockers in Edinburgh?

Sinoti Sinoti has extended his contract with Newcastle. With a lot of their best players leaving this was pretty important to keep some of their best players.

Fekitoa confirmed to Wasps

If they can coax some of his early career promise out that could be a monster signing, line breaks and sickening offloads for days. Nobody's really seen his best for a couple of years though.

Even with all their outgoings, they’re still going to have a really good team. Plus they have some promising youngsters coming through so I wouldn’t be writing them off like most plaudits for next year.

"Will Stuart is leaving Wasps this summer to join Bath, CoventryLive understands, and will be replaced by Hurricanes tight-head Jeffery Toomaga-Allen.

Wasps today confirmed that the 22-year-old Academy graduate, who only signed a senior contract in May 2018, is joining Willie le Roux, Nathan Hughes and Jake Cooper-Woolley and heading for pastures new at the end of the season.

While his next destination has not been officially confirmed at this stage, rumours have strongly linked the 133kg prop with a move to The Rec.

With two tightheads on the move, director of rugby Dai Young has acted swiftly to bring in Hurricanes star Toomaga-Allen."


The 28-year-old has one New Zealand cap, achieved in 2013 against Japan.

Steady signing for them the likelihood is he would never add to his 1 cap nothing spectacular

Obviously everyone has heard about Mike Williams but Bath have also signed Lewis Boyce (Harlequins/U20s), Christian Judge (Saracens) and Will Stuart (Bath), pretty much the rumours were spot on, shame that Boyce has left Quins he is a very good player but perhaps struggled to fit in.

Presumably that means Pollard now unlikely?
