We wouldn’t be doing too badly by signing the three Du Preez brothers. Robert can cover fly half with the other two playing backrow or lock. All three good quality rugby players with international experience.
Those two will be staying in Sale IMO.

I thought they were only both on short term loan until the end of the season?

Dan du Preez is on a short term deal at Exeter and not playing. Twin of Jean Luc. Bok and covers 4-8 (per Wiki). Big lad and only 23. Replacement for Williams?

Any rumours on the injury dispensation fullback? Is getting Kibirige or Loader on an early release hoping too much?

Seems wasps have signed Andre Dunn.
It was his younger brother Tane who played for Wasps yesterday. Tane was originally a flanker but has been playing centre at his school (Langley) this season. Andre has visa issues and has been playing club rugby recently for Diss RFC (L6) at centre.

This rumour has been regurgitated by Big Jim on the Rugby Pod too. Maybe something in it.

I just cannot see how Ged Glynn can keep his role...when you look at our squad compared to the majority of premiership competition what we must get for our money is awful :smt012

The main thing is no coach is going to fix this (bar the defence maybe ) until we get rid of a good few of the players who are just not good enough imo

All this falls at the feet of Glynn and Cohen who must take responsibility for building one of the worst squads in Leicester history!

I don't know. Look at our back line any number of them could be a marquee player. I can't think of another team with so many front line internationals as their starting backs. Our scrum is also probably the strongest in the Prem. You can see we've spent a lot on players, maybe too much on our starting backs to the detriment to the rest of the team.

True, the actual squad assembled is pretty good, especially starting XV. Obviously we’re lacking a bit in depth but that can be rectified. Think the problem is more the coaching and player attitude than the playing quality.

All three are quality players, would be massively happy with them coming in. Would go a long way to fixing our squad. Assuming they won’t be called up by SA, would be hugely influential all year round.

So theoretically:
Dan Du Preez - Mike Williams
Robert Du Preez - Joe Ford?
Jean Luc Du Preez - ?

Only Jean-Luc will be likely called up by South Africa, Robert was capped in that international vs Wales but it didn’t go too well.
