Especially enjoyed "oh, he's the seasoned international ready to strike fear into opponents"... Who from the list of rumours could this be? I don't know if you'd call Snyman a "seasoned international" (although he certainly falls into the fear-inducing category) and with coaches finding him so marmite I don't know if you could call Cips an international veteran either. Maybe it's Landajo. Hoping it's someone not even mentioned and who will completely outdo all expectations...

Exciting!

And everyone's favourite saying there will be "a few Kiwis by all accounts": https://twitter.com/RugbyInsideLine/status/1107241450260054017

Haven't seen any rumoured. Which makes the possibility (however remote) even more tantalising. I love this stuff.

All 3 would be outstanding. And like you say someone of good quality who hasn’t been mentioned yet would be great.
Do we dare dream!

I know there were some doubts earlier this season when the topic was brought up, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a past All Black or a young and up coming All Black and current player from a Super Rugby team to sign for us.

My main wish is to see Cips at Quins tearing it up with Care at 9&10. Exciting stuff and funny video, look forward to see how they announce the signing as much as the signing reveal itself!

"I don't think the Quins budget will stretch to jet skis, and bongos, and girls dancing, even though we'd like it to."

Topical.

Love it! I think, and hope, Snyman is a signing.

“Seasoned international” sounds like Campagnaro to me.

Looks like Bath are swooping to steal Anscombe but I’d be surprised - and delighted - if that meant Quins stumped up for a season or two of Cipriani. No more than that, as Smith will soon be running the show. But Cipriani could win us some silverware in the meantime.

Really excited to hear who we’ve signed.  Cips would be great but just imagine what MS and JL could learn from him about game management.

Saw a suggestion that the different ways of announcing players on that chalkboard could be a hint at the players being announced, with lion king obviously being Scott Baldwin.
Anyone got any ideas who the others could be if it's really that, fireworks - cips maybe?

They're actually just the ways other clubs have announced their new signings. They've re-edited scenes from famous films, generally overlaying players' faces to introduce the new signing. For example: https://twitter.com/WaspsRugby/status/1085491919940128768

Only a rumour but RIL tweeted saying we've signed Cornish Pirates second row Toby Freeman. Not sure if this could potentially be one of the signings? Or may not even happen at all, only a rumour.

I enjoyed seeing George Robson's name on the "not funny" list

Judging by the first set of clues, todays announcement will be Martin Landajo. Confirmation at midday.
