Would be the perfect signing, and if South is leaving too, and Horwill retiring, even with the new locks we are one short realistically.

Would give us a squad (unless we lose others) of

Marler
Baldwin
Sinckler
Snyman
Symons
Robshaw
Clifford
Dombrandt
Care
Smith
Earle
Taps/Saili
Marchant
Morley
Brown

Botta, Crumpton, Collier, Lewies, Bothma/Kunatoni/Chisholm, Landajo, Lang, Campagnaro

With cover of Auterac, Buchanan, Young, Evans, Luamanu, ? Hidalgo-Clyne?, Catrakalis, Heron, Lasike, Ibitoye, Morris etc and maybe Busser/Walker if we are keeping them.

That would be strong, and rumours of the Barretts would make that league winning strength

Hate to be a spoil sport but NO such thing as ‘a perfect’ signing that is cloud cuckoo land!

As in a signing that perfectly suits our weaknesses and strengths and style of play of a high class

I suspect Owen Slot picked it up from Fissler and is just regurgitating

You think Slot decided to reference a six month old rumour from a rent a gob poor journalist on a rugby paper no one reads?

Nothing angry about it, just observing that it's highly unlikely.

... a rugby paper no one reads?

Back in 2012, it had ~ 18,000 weekly subscribers (excludes people buying from newsagents). As 70,710 attended games last weekend, the % of potential fans reached is ~ 25% (if their readership has held up or even extended).

Just imagine if the Torygraph/Grauniad/Smite could attract that percentage of their target readers (approx 13.5m Tory Voters, 12.9m Labour Voters 2.3m Liberal Voters at 2017 election) with their Sunday editions (278,500/163,700/712,300 respectively): they wouldn't be worrying about circulation figures if they could match The Rugby Papers catch.

But your point about the Slot Machine is valid.  ;)

I'm impressed at your attempts, but that's not quite logically right as a comparison.

Sport England puts the number of people actively taking part in rugby once a week at 199,000 (2015), there are more than 340,000 registered rugby players in the country, and BT sport averages 345,000 viewers per match, not to mention the peak of 8.9m who watched the Wales v England 6 nations match on the TV.

So even we take a very low estimate and call it 250,000 people who might care about rugby every week - they're selling to less than 7%.

On a similar measure the Sun (1.4m), Mail (1.3m), Times (500k), are therefore hitting 23% of those Tories daily. Much more weekly.

But let's not even consider the fact that in the last election, 19% of Mirror readers were Tory voters and 30% of Sun readers voted Labour because it all gets too confusing....

Every time someone posts on this thread after a day or two of no posting, I get excited that there's a Snyman update. Then I remember I played an active part in making this thread more about publishing figures. D'oh.

Many rugby clubs have a stack of "free" copies of the magazine in their clubhouses. and many may be bought in shops, so 70K is the low end. However, if you include the Mail, Sun etc, then the figures are still roughly the same ~ 25-30% of the Sunday papers reach their target audience which is roughly the same as the Rugby Paper. My admittedly crude effort to highlight the figures was mainly to point out that rather more than "no one" (i.e. ~70,000) reads the paper.

There are more "rent a gob poor journalist(s)" working for the Sun/Mail/other tabloid than I'd care to imagine - not sure they are newspapers; rather loudspeakers blaring out coprolite.

Apologies, TomBQ, if this breakout session has failed to excite you. I too, hope that Snyman arrives and that certain fans on this board donate many babies (*) for him to eat.

Why is it a “baby eating lock” ?  A lock that eats something much bigger and scary like a polar bear or rhinoceros would be more intimidating.

See the spelling police missed one.   :o 

Would be a great signing though I still get the feeling we’ll announce 1 or 2 more.
