Sorry QP, I probably did not explain myself.  As it stands, CM is my number 2. Lewis (no offence to the guy) just isnt up to it.  Waters is at Jersey and Saunders, as pointed out is behind CM.  Fast forward a year and all are OOC.  Saunders and Waters need to be kept IMHO.  Care, could be off (ifs and buts I know, but humour me).  Lewis can go.  We bring in a top drawer SH to replace Care.  Saunders and Waters fight for the back up spot.  That gives us 3 SH (maybe enough/maybe not??).  Im just not sure  where it leaves CM (hence the dont know from me).  CM could end up having a blinding season and this time next year Ill be saying "thank god we kept him. 

Re Waters, its a fair point about the "over rating" but having seen him in the 7s, a team and his brief cameos for us I think he is a very good player. He is quick to the ball, gets it out (take note DC) and has good hands.  Add his pace also and I think we have a player on our hands.**  He also had positive reviews from his short time on DR at Ealing

**I will confess I am the man that thought Stanley could turn out useful so make of that what you will.

Re the point about numbers (is 3 SH enough).  I have read (on here or TRP) a quote from Gustard saying next season we will be looking at Quality in the squad rather than quantity, and the academy guys will be expected to step up.  That could be a factor
