Great work RB. :smt023 Lewington has now signed an extension with Saracens so can take him off the rumoured list.

Crikey, thats a stunningly ( ???) backline when Nadolo gets injured and Fordy is off playing Internationals.

We need at least 4 more TOP QUALITY backs.

Or am I the only one who is concerned ???

Yes let’s hope McGinty is on the case. Minimum we need to bring in starting quality for 13, 14 and 15. Probably another prop too but only for squad depth. So we’ve had 5 departures and could do with another 4 signings. I’m sure there are plenty of pickings from Argentina, South Africa or Australia.

Would love us to be looking at Naholo given his contract dispute at London Irish.

Fingers crossed but Nadolo's injury record is pretty solid. Retiring from internationals will have helped with that.

9.White 10.Hardwick 11.Nadolo 12.Scott 13.Taute 14.Olowofela 15.Steward

21.Simmons 22.Henry 23.Worth

Obviously short of experience at winger/fullback with May, Veainu and Thompstone gone. Also short a starting centre with Manu leaving. Hardwick and Worth covering the hole that Reid/Eastmond leaves wouldn't upset me though.

Scott and Nadolo are excellent signings. I'm also excited by the young half backs at the club.

As for being concerned, if we were heading into the 2020/21 season with this squad I would be, yes. For the conclusion of the 2019/20 season though I'm happy with the prospect of the younger players, many of whom have just extended their contracts, getting some game time and Borthwick just putting some structure in place.

I'd still take Taufua re-signing and a top quality lock joining us over signings in the backs to be honest. The last few years have shown that having brilliant backs is pointless if they have no platform.
