If it is 4...

Herron will no doubt be one. I'd like to see us bring in a full back. McKenzie would do. ;D Maybe another LH prop? And a no.8?

I would say. 2 tomorrow and 2 friday (outside chance of 1 more on Friday).  One to be Herron.  The other 3 (maybe 4) based on nothing but pure rumour and guess work to be - Back Row, Wing, ?? and (?? if more).  2 of which to be kiwis.  I think one will be a "name" and maybe a surprise.  Outside chance we could get another FH, maybe if we see Heron (should he come) as a project.  Also outside chance one incoming could be a surprise replacement for someone leaving that we did not expect (lets use Horwill as an example, despite being in contract, although not saying it would be him)

For reference, we have been linked with  -

Lawday (Exeter BR)
Galletier (Montpellier BR)
K Smith (Lions BR)
W Boyde (Scarlets BR)
S Davies (Ospreys FH)
A Forsyth (Yorks Cen)
Snyman (Bulls LK)
Freeman (Pirates LK)
Jon Kpoku (Sarries LK)
Cipriani (Gloucs FH)
Anscombe (Cardiff FH)
Plummer (Blues FH)

The 3 obvious positions with less depth are full back, fly half, prop (maybe still hooker if RB doesn't make it back?) Everywhere else, we have numbers. You could argue a no. 8 wouldn't be a bad thing I guess - although Dombrandt, Chis, Clifford give us options.

Even if Snyman isn't coming, with the addition of Young + Lewies we'll have as many locks next season as we did this season.

Flankers and centres, we have more than enough.

Wing I think is covered tbh. A few obvious guys in the mix for matchday 23 (Earle, Gabs, Murley) and then plenty of versatile guys who can cover there (Chis, Marchant, Campagnaro, Morris...)

Actually a tricky one to call.

Yes I would hope that is where they are concentrating, Horwill still concerns me with age and increasing time out for injury, but maybe he was just unlucky this season.
I'd like another lock but it isn't an imperative and Lewies certainly seems like the baby eating variety at 6'7" and 18 stone!

Plummer (Blues FH)

Out of these, I think Lawday is now unlikely (I think he was only ever mooted as being part of a swap deal involving Clifford).

Sadly the two Iíd be most interested in - Snyman and Cipriani - are probably the least likely.

The only Kiwis on the list are Anscombe (despite his Welsh caps) and Plummer.

Agree about Lawday, was just throwing out the names mentioned.  I think the last couple will be names not previously mentioned

With two new locks now named I can't see Snyman coming which I must admit would be the one downer for me amongst all the good signings

Unless Horwill is expected to play less and less...

That's very true but all the time we're paying him I guess it makes it harder to bring a top quality lock in. Time will tell.
