Nothing new there then from our point of view. Fissler tweeted again that he was convinced that Boyce was leaving, which is a shame

I was reading about Varndell a couple of days ago. Seems he's cut short his stay in France after making minimal impact, and Leicester need injury cover. So...

I hope we are able to sign a Hooker, Jack Singleton looks a good option, however, seems to be off to Sarries.

A new lock, ideally someone who can add some grunt to the forwards and be a dominant lineout performer. RG Snyman comes to mind. What a signing he would be, young hungry and huge.

A new hooker is absolute priority as it was last season unless Rob Buchanan is coming back then him plus Crumpton and a youngster would do. Seems to be total silence on Horwill maybe he will go up to Falcons?

RG Snyman would be a quality addition, looks to have good pace and looks for the offload out of the tackle. Would certainly add something we have been missing at Quins.

Why would Horwill go to Falcons? I haven't heard anything suggesting he might - do you have a source?

(obviously I am no oracle, just interested in a rumour that I had not yet heard.)

I wonder if he meant he may be part of the squad for Saturday's game at Newcastle?

I thought I saw or heard that Horwill is constantly injured and considering retirement.

We really need someone to help out Matt Symonds and become another player for the likes of the youngsters to look up to.

The other one that we should be trying to lure away from Sarries is Joel Kopku. He looks a phenomenal prospect. How much game time is he going to get with Super Mario, Kruis, Skelton etc...

I read that Chris Cook the scrum-half at Bath is out of contract. I have always been impressed with him, could be a great signing.

Hopefully, we should get some news soon, especially as clubs are now free to talk to free agents.

Horwill moving? Hed have to be fit to play first - and I reckon the next announcement will be his retirement from injury.

(Just to say I sincerely hope not - but its been a very long time)

I we were looking at someone from Bath, Stooke or Attwood would suit me.

Yep, and an absolute brute of a lock too.

Only problem with Snyman would be that he would miss a fair bit of rugby.  If we signed someone like that we would need another body in as cover when he is away

Rugbyinsideline has just linked us with two young guns. Tom Lawday (no.8) from Exeter and Glen Young (2nd row) from Newcastle.

Watched Lawday a couple of time and been impressed with him, cant say I have heard of Young. Hope hes not the English 2nd row Arniepie was on about 😬

RIL's rumours are frequently total nonsense. Remember he was convinced we'd signed Julian Savea, and that Paul Lasike wasn't signing for us after he'd been strongly linked to us, among other stuff (he has a habit of deleting tweets so fact-checking him is not that straightforward).

He's also a total knob.
