Charlie Thacker although I appreciate he is hardly development and Tait has hardly played centre therefore Worth and SAR

IMHO it would be a waste of resources replacing 2 players who have become squad players with signings, this is where developing players should be used

Worth and Thacker are already in the seniors.
I used development incorrectly I should have said less experienced.
Either way I don’t think players should be brought in to replace Smith and Tait these should come from existing squad members
But as has been said our numbers are already short.

I don't think it would ,let's be honest it was a relatively easy group and we got a plum QF draw v SF.

Are there any Tigers related rumours in the Rugby Paper today?

Plum as it was, still a very fond memory that quarterfinal.

I’m watching the Italian game, Jack McGrath doesn’t seem to be in favour with either Leinster or Ireland at the moment, his World Cup place doesn’t seem secure. Worth inquiring?

Quality player but props aren't an area of concern. Nasty locks and bruising backrow players please.

Currently sorting out the centre situation would be my priority.

The locks need to be a couple "beasts".

If Reid and Taute are signed then we are only needing a replacement for Manu if he does indeed go.

Pack needs an overhaul between 4 and 8. Power, aggression and nous all sadly lacking.

Spencer, Thompson and Denton fit the bill. I fear for Denton though, is that 3-4 months out with concussion ? Not good.

Jordan Taufua gets runner up spot for blindside in the Championship team of the week. Interestingly enough, Lachlan McCaffrey gets starting No 8 spot!

There is a deafening silence on this thread. The club is keeping very, very quiet. We must have made some mouth watering signings. :smt045 :smt017

Well what do we have to talk about? Not even any good speculative rumours heading our way to spice things up let alone any actual signings.
