Few rumours now about starting 10s we're after. Don't understand that given that Smith is already a very good 10 and Lang us decent back up

I particularly like every time someone says “Smith can learn from xxxxx”

Yeah coz that’s what he needs. We’ve only got the widely acknowledged best ever foreign signing to the Prem for him to learn from now so you can see we’re lacking badly.....

Marcus also can’t play every match particularly if we are in the Champions Cup or he gets a call up

Lang is not decent back up as a 10. He's one of the famous utility backs we've tried to make work over the last decade or so.

We have one good 10.

I agree with you Blucherquin , but would add that its not the same being coached and advised by a great player , as it is watching a great player in training for a match with you and actually seeing him perform / close out games with your regular team mates
I think both actions complement each other .
I watch how Exeter use Simmons and Steenson and think we could benefit from something like that
In the current context Im sure Brock James would be more useful than Quade Cooper.

I wonder if we'll ever experiment with Ross Chisholm at 10. He seems to have played a few A games there. Different level, I know. Just musing.

I think to say we don’t need a 10 because we’ve got Smith is a little, even more to say he won’t learn.  I think Cooper could be good as I said before a few years back no one would touch Cips with a barge pole.  TIL he re-signed with Glos we wanted him.  I think if Cooper can rid his immaturity he could be a great Quin.

Who else is there that wold benefit our club and the current 2 fighting for the 10 shirt.

One OK 10

Ridiculously harsh. Marcus Smith is not the finished article, but he’s a lot better than ‘OK’.

His performance against Clermont was excellent. We just need to see him controlling a game like he did then more often.

This may be controversial, but I actually think Smith has looked better when paired with SHC or Mulchrone than he has with Care. When Care plays, he runs the show, which has its pluses and minuses IMO.

One of the drawbacks is that Smith gets less of an opportunity to control the game from 10 and then tends to try to force it when he does get the ball. That’s partially immaturity from Smith but sometimes Care needs to remember he’s not playing 9 and 10.

Lang is OK, but I agree with others that he’s a decent utility back rather than a genuine 10.

Lang is a good player , he has a cannon of a boot , tackles well and runs hard , all the attributes of a full back really .When he played at full back for the A team (apart from the lack of speed of Morris or Chis ), he did a good job - maybe with work on his speed he could be a long term replacement for MB .

Townsend picked him for Scotland last summer at centre saying he was an excellent ball carrier and tackler and felt that was the best position for him in his side ( with Hidalgo Cline at 9 and Adam Hastings at 10)

We usually play him at 10 /12 ( and I think once on the wing when injury forced it)

As a young man he will just be keen to get over the whitewash at the moment at every opportunity regardless of where he plays, but soon he needs to decide his best / favoured position and work on it , or as mentioned above could end up permanently on the bench as back up for several positions .

I’ve just seen that Quade Cooper has 12 try assists this season, he’s currently at the top of the try assists leaderboard. Now the Cat has been confirmed as leaving, I’d take Cooper in a flash.
I get that SH rugby is all about attack and a very open game, but still think he would teach Smith & Lang a thing or two.
