Did I miss that Loan announcement or do you think this is a more, game-by-game loan deal?

Impressed by Law in the Prem 7s last season - we really do have some great young 9s coming through!

I think I may watch the Coventry match - Lewis hasn't had a start since January last year. Try and watch the Tigers match at the same time! Not sure you can re-watch on the Saracens website. Hoping he does well - he must be hungry for a good run out.

No announcement.

Will be interesting to see what we do.
Can't keep White, JVP, Law and Edwards all happy really.
Also have Gelderbloom in the U18.

That’ll be why I missed it!

Agreed, wonder if Wiggy will move more into coaching leaving Lenny, JVP, White as senior options with Law and Edwards as dev.

I read somewhere Law used to play 10 and kicked for goal, given we have no real 10 options in the dev squad I wonder if this is a possibility? Or even a French style 9/10?

Glad to see Olowofela given a chance in super rugby. Always thought he was a talented player, but for whatever reason it hasn’t worked out for him the last couple of seasons.

This could revitalise his career, get his confidence back up then he could return with a realistic chance of getting a spot in the senior squad.

This is a good post RB.

It is important that young players get regular competitive game time in order to develop game skills. Hopefully this post will be able to keep an eye on progress. :smt023

Don't think you'll have a problem. Tigers play on Friday night, Coventry appear to be playing Saturday.

Olowofela is now out of his 14 day mandatory quarantine and got to meet his new team mates for the first time in Sydney today. He also got to see Western Force beat Waratahs in a close game, and featured in a brief interview with the touchline reporter during the match.

Now living in Western Australia and working in Hockey but still watching rugby whenever i can!

He definately has the potential to be very good, just needs to get back the confidence he had when he was a youngster, and also the freedom to take on his opposte wing, the last few games he appeared to be holding back and then getting caught out of position, therefore missing tackles.
