I'd be disappointed to see Evans leave, when he's been fit he's always played well IMO. Not sure about him going to Quins because of the competition here though as they have Dombrandt, Bothma, Chisholm, Clifford, Kunatani, Robshaw and Wallace already

For some reason I can’t see the Evans rumour being true. He’s either been ill or injured recently, hence why he hasn’t been making the 23. When he’s fit, he’s normally in or around the matchday squad.

In regards to Andre Dunn, that’s his younger brother Tane Dunn playing for wasps u18s. Neither of them regarded good enough by GED GLYNN

From what people have said Andre Dunn was going to be given a contract but a visa issue stopped that.

All 3 Dunns will be at wasps soon. Pascelle Dunn, Andre Dunn and Tane Dunn. Huge loss for tigers

Pasqualle Dunn has been out of the Tigers set up for 5 years now pretty much.
Tane only just coming into the academy set-up.

Andre would be an annoying loss though.

Whether or not I would call it a huge loss i'm not sure, Umaga was an annoying loss but despite being a year older than Hardwick he hasn't really kicked on at Wasps yet.

Some things never work out do they how you’d think. When Umaga left he was arguably one of the most promising young talents in the whole premiership, let alone just our academy.

Yet he hasn’t done anything at Wasps, not getting into their squad or setting the world alight in the A league.

It would be an odd signing for Quins considering the make up of their squad. Hopefully we'll see Evans rotated in for BOC next week so that both are kept match ready heading into the new year.

RB, agree completely on Umaga. Sense of disappointment when Wasps tempted him across the Midlands with more substantial wages. He's not really done anything and is still fourth choice at Wasps. Not making the squad even with their injuries. Hopefully that'll be pointed out to Hardwick and he'll sign a new contract with us giving him more game time to develop.

Anyway out of the list of NZ players leaving I would realistically try and sign Izzy Dagg and Laumape.

Where do the Irish teams get their unknown upcoming stars from? We need Geordan to pop over to Ireland, seek out some of his countrymen.
Leicester had plenty of lads of that potential knocking around, they missed out to often for the connected etc.
Ask folk from Melton about the potential of young Wood as a teenager, lightning quick with footwork to match, overlooked to often and just generally kept down, he was a super talent for full time development in my opinion!
I've seen it with potential front rows as well, the blokes down at Hinckley will tell you how good the young lad was who joined the forces just over a couple years ago and how big his potential was to develop, just turned 18 and they couldn't believe how good he was and how good he could be!
Gone on for years and I could go on, but hopefully that will change!
RagingBull suggested next year will be a sign, and it will, if certain names get it then nothing has changed!
Absolutely. Genre kicked a fuss in Daily Mail about class prejudice in rugby, quoted on FB pages.

With a two-year deal from the Tigers in his pocket, the degree is now on ice.
Wonder if that is his current contract or new contract?

We wouldn’t be doing too badly by signing the three Du Preez brothers. Robert can cover fly half with the other two playing backrow or lock. All three good quality rugby players with international experience.

SC that's trulli awful. The sad thing is after today's result I actually laughed at it.
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!
