By that logic, we should have offloaded Robshaw about a decade ago. He's slower than Wallace and breaks the defensive line so rarely that the look of astonishment on his face is always a treat.

He's a pretty good carrier into heavy traffic with good passing ability and vision. Wallace, uh, isn't - he's likely to get munched in the same situations and less likely to create something.

Hence one having 0 international caps and one having 66 international caps (with 43 as captain)

This. Robbo's a different kind of carrier to the likes of UniRig/Chis but much more effective than Wallace. Wallace is better over the ball - and that's about it unfortunately...

Don't get me wrong, love the guy as someone who's put his body on the line for Quins (and it's taken some serious blows) and will thank him wholeheartedly if/when he leaves, but letting him go won't see us losing a huge amount of natural talent/ability that we can't replace. If the rumours are true then in Evans it would seem, at least on the surface, that we're getting an upgrade - younger, more physical and plenty of development left to come.

Wallace tends to make more tackles than anyone, possibly bar Robshaw, and misses few. He's right up there as one of our best breakdown forwards, especially helping ensure quick ball. His turnovers do seem to have dried up somewhat but he's still getting more turnovers per game than the other back rowers bar Dombrandt this season. He's missed a lot of games through injury this season and last and I find some posters low opinions of him a little bizarre. Anyway, it seems he's on his way but I'd love him to stay.

We'd miss both Wallace and Clifford. They both work hard. I'm sure others know best, though...

Id be tempted to stick Wallace in a number 2 shirt and let him learn the ropes there. Hes tough enough, physical enough, and young enough to adapt. Hes just not got the beef to be a serious contender in the back row. I suspect, given his overall athletic demeanour, that he may also be able to throw a lineout ball reasonably straight. With a couple of A-grade props on either side to look after him, it could be an interesting experiment.

Interesting idea but too late in the day for that kind of experiment unfortunately.

Fantastic he has huge potential I think as a seven in the 6.5 mould

If Clifford has signed, it would be outstanding news.

What do we make of the fact that we are losing 12 players and there is almost no news of inbound ones a midst all sorts of news for other clubs; Gussie playing his cards close to hus chest?

Hopefully it is correct and if it is that is great news, having him back playing is like a new signing.
