Shouldn't J.Olowofela be on Seniors List following his bench stint last week?

Excellent work as always, hoping that Head Coach placement will be changing very soon :smt023

Don't think so.

Development players can play for the seniors it's just the contracts are usually different.

This will be interesting, with everything around MOC.

Just the one confirmed out, so far - Toomua.

Agreed, always felt a bit sorry for him when he got sacked by the same people who probably promoted him too quickly

Josh Fenner started for Wasps A last night. Wasn't he the lad that was supposed to be joining us last year?

Last I heard was that he went back to Aus last season.
(Was in the Queensland Colts team in August but had an injury)

Hardie looking for a team now, hasn't got a deal with Clermont.

If BOC is out for a bit and Evans is still a while from full fitness and with Williams looking more of a option for lock, might be a good idea to try and get Hardie in on a short term deal.

with the world cup coming up he should be looking for any type of deal with a top flight team (Prem, Pro 14, Top 14).

Offer him a trial. If he can show he's fit then give him a contact until the end of the year. Evans and BOC seem to be struggling with injury and openside is an attritional position. Currently Kalamafoni and Denton are having to play a lot of minutes, be nice if they could be rotated with Thompson a little more.

Harlequins loosehead Lewis Boyce is being linked to a Midlands club according to Goode and the Rugby Pod, would be great if he came here. In my opinion should have been signed as injury cover for Genge instead, very much a Genge 2.0.

As Joe Grey has joined Saracens from Northampton Saints then Saints may well be the destination of Boyce.
Incidently Dom Barrow has yet to appear for Saints, has he been fighting in the pre seasons?

He said BIG midlands club though, and anyone who listens to the pod knows that Jim and Goode do not think of them as a big midlands club.

(Could be wasps though, although with Mullan, this georgian prop, McIntyre and west they are pretty well stocked).
