Unless he is coming in for Wallace if he is on his way.

"Care also revealed Harlequins are set to announce a few high profile signings in the next couple of weeks."

I don't know about you but our spangly new tie up with the AB's seems about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike...

McCaw thinks just playing for the AB's should be enough to stem the player drain..

“it’s quite a hard team – when you’ve had a taste of it – to turn your back on.”

Doesn’t seem to be!

If the likes or Barrett and Retallick are on their way out (even if only temporarily) then the path is becoming easier.

Our tie up with ABs as we were told at the time is not to do with our senior squad more to do with coaches and developing young players.

I agree Monte , I don't think anyone expected established AB's to come this way , in fact it was more likely that younger players like Marcus Smith , Gabs Ibitoye etc would go the other way and similar age players come to us .

see this article from last march

"Harlequins are not expected at this stage to instantly bring in a number of high-profile All Blacks, with the partnership instead seeing younger New Zealand talent making the move north to gain valuable experience in Europe at an important early stage of their careers "

Nev went down to NZ but with Gussie coming in And the World Cup in Sep Inthink we have to wait and see if it is a damp squib or a live squib!

I think the squib will make more of a sizzle and bang than a squid .. ( unless you put it in a frying pan )

I think we're getting into the realms of the news item that was widely reported this week of a driver who crashed & told the attending police he'd swerved to avoid an octopus on the road:

The officers said he'd left some squid marks...
