The argentine press are reporting we are having talks with him.
They are one of the most reliable sources in terms of rugby news.

That said only talks but would suggest lock is an area we are looking at.

Alemanno, Green, Lavanini, Spencer, Wells with Lewis at 6 would be rather tasty!

Only if Green and Spencer extract their digits, or that nice Mr. Borthwick can work some magic

Also more than likely a replacement for Spencer. Most premiership squads only have 4 senior locks.

Do they? Last seasons top 3 going into this season have;

Saracens; Itoje, Isikwe, Kpoku, Kruis and Skelton.

Chiefs; Hill, Witty, Kirsten, South, Price and Lonsdale.

Gloucester; Slater, Grobler, Mostert, Craig and Clark (admittedly Freddie Clark can play both backrow and lock).

If you're going to have international call ups you need to allow for some extra cover. If we have the two Pumas then there's a good chance they'll be called up at various times so giving us some options would be handy. A Green and Wells second row lacks a little beef so it would be nice to retain Spencer, maybe on a one year deal with the option of a second if he proves he's able to stay fit. Unless of course the club feel that Jordan and Martin are going to be ready for more action next season, I'd have thought it'll be a bit to soon for Martin.

Facundo IsaIs out of contract
Would be a quality acquisition, can we afford him? I’m sure his Toulon wage is bigger than that we can afford him within the cap.

With Mourad leaving they might change their way of signings etc.

Good news, Bristol already potentially have Sinckler on the books, Woolmore and Thomas are dependable props and James Lay is a Samoan international whereas on the tighthead they will be weak when Afoa hangs up his boots.
