It makes me laugh, it really does!

People just aren't happy with whoever we sign! We are bringing in an injury replacement for Genge, it's not going be a world class prop or a prop good enough to start at other Premiership clubs because if they are starters at other clubs, they will stay at that club and not come to us as an injury replacement.

Also, in regards to Kyle Eastmond, he hasn't really got massive attitude problems and if any club can sort him out, it's us.
Oh yes we did a marvellous job of sorting Opeti Fonua!!

Some work some don't what's your point?

Fonua was more his off field discipline rather than a "Attitude".
Fonua's skills weren't outstanding either

I'm thinking and praying Maafu was already coming anyway and now we are looking for another LH.

Please. If you think that debunks a point made with a much heavier weighting of examples then you're mistaken.

I assume that in Genge's absence Bateman will start as he did many times last season, we have a couple of young players for the bench and one even younger also available. The addition of an experienced prop at a reasonable wage will help and not be seen as someone who will be a long term block to the progress of the youngsters who may well learn from him on the training ground.

Who covers Cole in the AI and 6N? Bateman can't do both.

While I am less than enamoured of MOC, and so not massively expectant of great things next season, some of you do take the biscuit in the miserable stakes. :smt005

The stating the inevitable then claiming credit for a 'prediction'. I predict it will rain. Watch whatever space you want.
