Rugbypass seem to think that Wallace is also off at the end of the season.  No real surprise if it is true

Happy to boot Wallace out, heís obvs not the right player for us - for a while there he looked superb but sadly just hasnít happened for him.

Interesting posts. In my humble opinion, there will always be ebbs and flows in players but what makes this January more interesting than usual is the resurgence of Quins under Gussy. If a player is pondering on leaving us now, I have to wonder why. If I can feel and see the change in Quins from the stands then surely they must have a keener sense than I. The reasons for moving may well be varied and understandable and some will be missed, but from the academy we have had Smith and Ibitoye to name but two, newcomers like Dombrandt, Earle and Auterac plus other academy players bubbling just under the radar gives me quiet confidence. And our galvanised stalwarts. The futue is bright, the future is quartered!!

AT first glance I thought you meant CAW... then I noticed you didn't say "whingers"...  ;D

If true, he could be a replacement for Wallace or Clifford.

I would hope that it's not for Clifford.

Physically he is more in the Wallace mould. Not sure about his playing style though.

Surprised at the anti-Wallace sentiments from some posters. Welcome to your opinions of course but I think Wallace has been fantastic for us and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he goes to somewhere else, gets a load of game-time and plays back at the high levels he once did.

He dislocated his leg from his hip playing for us and has had minimal opportunity to show what he can do since coming back, so it's really not his fault. He's a great player and I'd be sorry to see him go.

Not sure me saying Iím happy for him to leave is the same as being anti Wallace.

I personally think regardless of injurry heís been overtaken by other players and his skill set is a little out of date for the way the game is now.

Doesnít mean Iím anti him - just looking at squad donít think we need to keep him.

I think reference was being made to your 'boot him out' comment, which came across as a little harsh. As a physio friend told me at the game when he dislocated his hip, it was quite possible that he would never fully recover. Under the circumstances, I would hope that some kind of community/back office role could be found for him. I always felt he was fully committed whenever he played despite the tiresome digs of him always being out on the wing.
