Yeah me neither. Seems like an anticlimactic shame.

Welcome, Luke Northmore, to our wonderful club. I hope  you prove the grumpy old men on this board wrong. Be assured we are not all like that.

Well if he's anyone near as good as Dombrandt then he'll do fine.

You'll spot The Dominator in that highlights reel. Northmore looks handy.

I'm not grumpy ffs. I'm just a bit disappointed they didn't end the week on a big name signing.

I think we've done pretty well, cannot complain and I'm sure there's a three year plan based on the finances. he says with fingers crossed.

Donít know why you want a big name they rarely work out and cost far too much money, this guy is someone to grow with the team and we all know that that is the way to success and players staying at the Club.

Bit of an oversimplification. I'm sure Hogg at Exeter will be a roaring success. Cips at Gloucester and Piutau at Bristol both spring to mind as big names that have done the business in a pretty impactful way. Naiyaravoro at Saints, Faf at Sale were both household names in Super Rugby and came over here and repeated those exploits from the off. I think we'll see big names when some of our older, higher paid contingent start to wrap up their careers - Horwill and Visser leaving end of next season will free up some cap and I'd hope to see some big names this time next year.

Watching that video, he's a strong and powerful upright runner that doesn't mind bish and bosh (no relation), steps off both feet, likes the inside pass, tackles well and turns over, scores tries and can kick the ball. OK, its 7 minutes of highlights and its lower grade rugby, but he looks like he has the skills.

Wonder if Dominator pushed his name to the scouts...

Yes, quality players rarely do well.
