I don't know where you'd find that size and try scoring ability for less. The PI monsters who can play rugby aren't just waiting to be discovered anymore there's scouts over there picking them up from an early age.

His try scoring record is ridiculous and so is his skillset. Having him causing absolute carnage every time he gets the ball flat from Ford will be great to watch. Potential fan favourite, worth the gamble of signing a back at 32.
I'm just tucking into my humble pie because I now realise that the last three or four years have turned me into a cynical grumpy old git. Bring him on!!!!
To be fair you do have reason to be cynical / grumpy. I play Jerome Schuster and raise you Joe Ford.
I see your Joe Ford and raise you Matt Toomua.

Some of the names on here now are frightening - but only with hindsight.
How many of us have either complimented their signatures or praised their early form ?
Toomoua was a hero 'till he wanted to play for Aus again.

Remember though in spite of (certainly not because of) them we remained competitive - even under Matt O'Connor's second spell of 'tutelage' we finished fifth...
Gradual,inexorable decline undoubtedly - but it says something for those running the playing side don't you think ?

oh , and lest we forget ... J. P. Pietersen

I'm really surprised nobody has brought this name up yet, and it may well be a winner, but I raise you Derick Hougaard

Wonder if we’ll have any announcements next week? Also gone very quiet on the futures for the likes of Guy Thompson and Will Spencer.

are the England players back? I would imagine Eddie is well within his rights to keep them in a training camp until the last expected week of the 6N
