I’m a huge fan of May and hope we can keep him. We have made him an offer and I hope he accepts. Can’t see why Gloucester would beat our offer with what they have though,Thorley and Zammit, why go £300k+ for May too.

As much as it hurts and May truly is world class,if we were guaranteed Lam as well as Nadolo I would let him go. The reasons for that are quite obvious.

Nandolo can cover in the centre as well, which is a huge bonus.
I would like May to stay, but worry his style of play doesn't really fit the game we try to play, we don't really get the best out of him.
With Nandolo you have to run support lines to get those off loads, something Taufua knows & Holmes has shown a good ability to do.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

Yes from what I've remember he's a very able kicker!

Be shocked if May went back to Gloucester, they’re stacked on the wing so highly doubt that. Still hoping we can keep him on reduced wedge.

Ryan Mills confirmed to be leaving Worcester. Would love to see him in a Tigers shirt, guy is seriously underrated.

I believe Mills is off to Wasps

From the BBC's report of the Worcester game...
Geordan Murphy afterwards confirmed the club's interest in signing Fiji winger Nemani Nadolo from Montpellier for next season.

On Nemani Nadolo: "We have been linked with Nemani. He is a great player and if we can get him across the line, then great."

No doubting Nadolo is a great player. My only concern is that he will be almost 33 when he comes to Tigers and that this is maybe a signing 3 or 4 years too late.

Dont fret.
At 33, he is streets ahead of any of our wingers apart from Holmes Veaninu and May..
I re-evaluate----- a full Motorway ahead .
