All the fans on Twitter seem to think it's Marler or Care so we'll have to see.
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

Certainly looks that way annoyingly. The reference to a helicopter in the video makes it likely to be him. It was always going to be an uphill battle to get him here, but by all accounts we made a good fist of it!

Shouldn’t it be. DC-9? First flight 1963 so about the same age too :smt044

It does seem that more and more often someone on here suggests a player that would be great to sign as a replacement e.g. Marler, there's a bit of chat about it on the thread and suddenly there's articles and websites reporting the rumour. 99.9% of the time they are rubbish.

What is the Marler and helicopter reference?
Is it all because he took a helicopter to Bristol?

Can't say I'm that bothered about Marler, he might be a good scrummager but I've never really liked him. Maybe to do with Ayerza, I'm not sure.
He's also a bit of a card magnet. Got another one this weekend and IMO probably could have been a red.

The Marler thing was always a no no. Why would he leave quins at the end of his career to go to another premiership side for similar money. Don’t actually think that there is anything in the Radwan rumour either as he is still under contract.

If Marler used us to get an extra 50K out of Quins I would be alright with that result.
TBH I do believe we had talks with him how far they went IDK who knows this might be Danny Care re-signing.

Marler is a top prop who I would love to have but at the same time it's not something I have gotten my hopes up for or that desperate to see happen.

If we want another Looshead you have the likes of in the prem out of contract
Boyce, Obano, Hepburn, Goodrick-Clarke, West (I think),

URC
Schoeman (Potentially 3rd year option rather than 3 year deal), Dooley, McGrath, Kebble,
and that's just a limited quick look.

Boyce would be my preferred option young with lots of potential.

Trouble with potential is you never know if it'll be fulfilled. As far as I can see, it just means you're not good enough yet.
I speak from experience, I've always had loads of the stuff!!
I've got a bad feeling about this.

If you don’t have the potential to improve why would Borthwick want you. We don’t have the funds to buy a top class international prop so next best is to buy a good player with the ability to get better.
