Bateman has confirmed on Instagram he has left the club but no info on where he has gone to
He seemed to be implying he was going to do an MBA at De Montfort
He and Guy Thompson were already doing them, maybe he’s going full time.

10th time Huw Jones has been on his way.
3rd hand info but original source is usually reliable

Not sure what I think about the potential of Huw Jones as a Manu replacement, if it was Huw Jones of a couple season ago I'd be excited but I'm not so sure now

You would be worried having Taute & Jones as your senior centres as neither has a great injury record.
The flip side (although potentially disruptive to us) is with a fair wind we could have Scotland's centre pairing playing for Tigers.
He has been linked with us frequently, not quite JMH levels but often.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

I remember when Exeter signed those 2 South African back 5 players, names escape me sorry, everyone thought they would just be squad players, but both pushed through to be 1st team regulars.
That is the sort of signing we should be looking to make, left field players looking to make a big impact.
Do agree about Henderson though, and think Lewis could really start pushing, only as a specialist 6 though.
Jaques Vermeulen & Jannes Kirsten, agreed very astute signings.

Agreed, hopefully the enforced break will have helped Taute to get the required rest to play more than 1 game on the bounce
Jones has age on his side, and players have come back from similar injury issues.

Rob Baxter has said that Exeter will shortly announce a signing that will have "everyone licking their lips."

.....Manu?
I saw Marika Vunibaka play

Don’t think Slade would be very happy.

Well from a Tigers POV only Manu and Taufua would get people to "lick their lips"

Wonder if Jones puts to bed any chance of De La Fuente joining

PLEASE tell me there is no truth in the rumour that Taufua is off to Exeter, we have lost far too many good players to them
