Hills being promoted could mean that Bateman will play at tighthead this season?

Looseheads:
  • Genge
  • Gigena
  • Hills
Tightheads:
  • Bateman
  • Cole
  • Cortes
  • Heyes
Then hopefully Fe’ao will be added to the mix 🤞

Presumably with Genge injured Bateman will start at LH?

I reckon with two THs leaving, we’ll replace them with another two. Cortes being more of a Baumann replacement. So hopefully we’ll be getting Ryan and Fe’ao.

Looking at the squad reckon we are missing at least 2 Props and a centre or two.

Bristol fans really rate Cortes, just struggled with injuries. Could be another Schuster , but equally could be the middle ground we need to bring Hayes through, especially if we sign Fe'ao as well.

Eastmond would be a brilliant signing, especially if Toomua is due off with Australia this year and for the RWC!

Eastmond and Macken would be quality backup centres. Eastmond would be pushing for a starting berth I’ve no doubt. He always looked good with Tuilagi in that summer tour to NZ.

The only thing that worries me about this is adding it together with the Toomua rumour

Tigers have never been put off by previous bad behaviour, just as long as they can park it at the door once they are here.
