Re Gopperth from what I gather attack is very much a committee thing
Wigglesworth
Smith
Sinfield
Ford
Burns

All tend to work together in that regard.
Wouldn't surprise me if Gopperth is filling in for Ford in terms of the brains trust side of things.

Nabbing Gopperth is a pretty smart move if it happens IMO, like Wigglesworth just one of those players you always think would move into coaching and be successful just look how much support he still brings to the likes of Umaga and Atkinson at Wasps.
Yes agreed I think he’ll be a good acquisition and he’s a key element of an exciting Wasps back line, and he can bring in that experience. Harrison….I don’t see it, even as a rumour.

Gopperth would be a good signing in view of a potential backs coach going forward.

I must admit I don’t see the sense in the Gopperth signing. With the arriving Pollard, Hegarty, Burns and Lancaster we have cover at 10, and cover in the centres too even if Socino is off and assume some cap being made available with Kobe’s van Wyk off.
My worry would be does it signify Wigglesworth moving on and Gopperth is coming in as a player coach
Maybe we only gave Burns a 1 year contract?

Anyone else been watching the Malaga Sevens? Browning looks big. Not as fast as was maybe promised, not slow though, but looks powerful.

I think he was quoted as saying he’s going to France to try and improve and then get back in the England squad obviously he can’t do that over there so A move back would be sensible if he has high ambitions with England

With names and rumours swirling and other clus beginning any announcements, are we expecting any official announcements this week?
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.
