Sterling work as always RB! So will we see a new attack coach and Mike moving to defence?

Or maybe a new defence coach? IDK.
Will be interesting to see how it shapes.

Will Borthwick have someone in mind? Who has he worked with before that might be free?
Joe Worsely played with him? Linked with Wasps.
Daryl Gibson still regularly stays with Murphy I believe, he failed as a Head Coach but he helped create a very potent attack as a backs coach under Cheika.

Where do you get your information from RB, there are a number of players on your lists that I have not seem confirmed, how do you get those details?

Another large crop of leavers, its good we are seemingly backing Borthwick but we really do need to cut the squad turnover down at some point. Not really many surprises in terms of leavers in the senior squad but its a shame to see Eveleigh leaving the Dev team already, with him and Jordan leaving isn't that both of our Academy winning captains gone?

Yes.
Although during Eveliegh season we had Whitcombe, Martin, Steward all captaining the squad as well.

Wonder if we are keeping Ilione, Smith and Muncaster though?
Muncaster signed from what I gather
You would assume Ilione is nailed on unless he wants to go somewhere else.

Reckon we might be bringing in another Winger in the development squad not from the academy we have 2 England U17's in the academy squad that will most likely be brought up. Gilliand will prob be off to wales.

I feel the club needs then
Backs Coach
Loosehead
Lock
Back Row
Back 3 x 2

Bring up
Vanes, Rowntree, Ilione, Muncaster, Kit Smith, Ollie Smith and either Sam Edwards or Harry Glynn.

I have the feeling if Edwards moves up either Simmons might go to Fullback or Law might be looked at as 10 cover.

Now that a list of leavers has been formally announced, and in line with what Murphy said last week, I'm sure there will be some annoucements this week on more incoming.

Thought we might have hung on to Batley and perhaps Boladau but await the announcements this week with some excitement. That is a lot of salary space for SB to work with. 8 confirmed ins and 15 outs, but it does seem to me that we are going to need 2 or 3 more back - wingers essential - and at least one more lock. 5 hookers and 4 locks looks distinctly unbalanced. As I say roll on further announcements
Hehehehehehehehe
