Presumably we won't be getting 2 per day? Care and Chisholm were joking about back row competition in their video I think. Presumably someone will come in to replace Wallace and Luamanu?

I dont think it is out of the question to expect 10 new in comings announced (2 a day).  RIL suggesting we have signed the Lock (Toby Freeman) from Pirates.  As for the back row, Will Evans and Tom Lawday have both been linked, I think Lawday went quiet when Clifford signed on again.  Keep being linked with FH, Cipriani/Anscombe in recent weeks, so we could well see a new FH coming in then???

What a difference a day makes, 24 little hours.

Two very good signings! Looking forward to the rest of this week with a few more on the way.

Keeping my fingers crossed we get Cipriani!

Exciting times!

I like the nickname “Guitar Tin” for Martin Landajo too, courtesy of Marler

I still think the only FH signing we're likely to get will be Brett Heron from Jersey, who we've been linked with for a little while now.

Seems like another FH as well as him would be one too many.

I don't think it is guitar tin but Marr tin. I think that is a photo of Johnny Marr from the Smiths...

Initially, I would have agreed, but the rumours of a new FH keep floating around, which makes me wonder if we were/are looking still

He also said no signing announcements until the end of the season according to the Chinese whispers on this board - so many of them flying around on here that I'm choosing to go with Fiss and the rumour mill gang - who seem to be on target so far...

Very happy with the first 2! A massive improvement in scrum half quality after DC, and an improvement on Boyce at 1! Real quality backup to Joe M. Excellent. Baby eating lock required and a decent 7. Snyman? Will Evans?

I cant remember the exact quote, but wasnt it that we had 3 on our books currently (MS, JL and The Cat) who are in contract for next season??  He might currently be in contract next season, but I would still be surprised to see the Cat here next year.  The rumour was Japan (The same side that Reid and WLR have just signed for, Toyota Verblitz)  Jake White is coach there.

Agreed. I’d be very happy with those four.

I’m not so sure I’d put Botta that far ahead of Boyce though. I can’t say for certain that I’ve ever seen him play and he is a 33 cap international, but when I think of how underwhelming Noguera Paz (who is more highly rated in Argentina) has been at Bath, I’m a touch cautious.

Boyce is still raw, but has lots of potential and I’m frustrated to see him going when I really don’t think he’s improving his prospects.

No his name translates directly as “guitar tin”.

His nickname is Fender.

Well the third clue is pretty straight forward, a certain Italian centre me thinks
