I mean we have who can play lock
Barrow, Kitchener, Fitzgerald, Williams, Wells, Kalamafoni and Maksymiw, Lewis in the development squad.

on the wing we have
Veainu, Thompstone, Holmes, Brady, Catchpole, Malouf and Olowofela in the development squad.

The gap between the top 2 wingers and the rest is much bigger than the gap between the locks IMO.

reasonably happy - would have thought that the 2 clubs would just have said even Stevens regarding buying either player out of their contracts as both were under contract but don't know. Makes the back line up look very impressive and if we were to add DMAC or 1/2P would be one of the best in the prem. just can we get them enough ball?????
Hehehehehehehehe

He might not be a bad signing as I think his England call up might start to get less regular after the November internationals, you got 3 lions wings coming back, then solomona( if he can learn to defend) the two young lads who went Argentina. Although I don't know how much ball he'll see unless we sort out centres that would still me my main focus for
Recruitment unless there's an academy player they're planing on bring up.

Would be right in thinking that this shouldn't affect us signing a Dmac or Halfpenny too as Slaters cap would be freed up aswell as Bethams and JPPS

We're missing someone of his speed in the wing. I might be basing this on out of date views but as long as he runs a bit straighter he could be a good signing for us.

As much as I like Slater I do think we're quite well stocked at lock and the squad could cope with one less.

Understand talks taking place tonight. Sources at Glos say it rests with Slates and whether he's willing to move

The Mercury clearly caught on the hop - can't add anything to what's reported in GloucestershireLive.

Yep, and unless we have bought DMac out of his contract........no top line FB and MOC sees TV as wing and Tait as centre.......

A May for Slater swap (refraining from comment on this...) still leaves us with one of the smaller squads in the Premiership - so I hope there is more news coming!

Still think we need to get hold of another full back unless I've missed something over the last 10 days as I've been away, Ok we have Tait and Veainu but the first is getting on a bit and has lost that yard of pace he had when younger and the second has admitted to me personally that his favourite position is on the wing. So any progress in this?
