I wish we had used him better when he was with us.

Good for him - was a top player imo.
Maybe one day we'll see him again, who knows?
He certainly is on a good trajectory, coaching-wise.

I well remember his stealing the line out when we played Salarycens in the final. We’d just scored that try straight from kick off and with a few moments to go we just had to get possession. Their line out, he won and that was that! Brilliant

His lineout ability was phenomenal, came to us as a "nobody" but took his opportunity with both hands, despite TTE's to damage him.

Bondi needs to get podcasting or LTTVing...unless he is making a playing comeback....

Great example of how players improved beyond all recognition during their tenure .Upon his arrival would anyone really expected a Lions call up ?
Well done , well deserved.

Have just seen Maxime Mermoz has retired, thought he was excellent for us in his short time here especially during a very difficult period, looks like he's moving into a career on French TV

Indeed.

Worst MOC side effect was losing McCaffrey. Let’s just get rid of our most consistent player and versatile back row.

Two former Tigers are now plying their trade with Agen in the Top14.

Pearce joined in 2019 and played 17 matches last season and Reid joined in the close season and made his début in the defeat at Pau.

Always liked Pearce,great carrier and his control at the back of the scrum was superb for a convert.
