Sterling work! Liebenberg out for the Bulls injured after coming off at HT last week. Not sure on the severity of the injury yet.

It’s on the rumour list but I think it’s very likely.

Some decent looking signings.
Fitting it together will be the difficult bit, many hours required.
Lavanini will need strong leadership around him, time to make Spencer and Thompson skipper and VC, the forward pack needs to be given back ownership in my opinion!

it doesn't matter how many new signings we get unless we start to play as a team . We need to have a playing style and skill levels that are coached from Academy level through to 1st Team - one day we might then become a Saracens or Exeter again .

When and where was McGuigan linked with a return out of interest? (Genuine question)
I saw Marika Vunibaka play

I've seen rumours that he has a relegation clause he's keen to activate. Can't see him coming back here unless TPN decides he wants to go a season early.

Seems unlikely doesn't it? He barely played when he was here and didn't set the world alight. Would be very surprised if he were to return.

If I may,my Dad did hear during the commentary of our game v Newcastle that he was on his way back. I queried it at the time because I didn't watch it live.

I am not sure he will. GF giving him a lot of praise this week and saying how he displays the spirit the team needs. Not heard he is going anywhere other than rumour on here.

Sure. I just haven't heard/seen anything from Tigers or elsewhere other than on this Forum so I wonder if it is one of those postulations that has gained currency and now appears as fact.
