Greenwood struggled at tigers and only did well when he came back.

Ross wasn’t discarded, though, was he? We would happily have kept him, but Ireland basically offered him a track to international caps, on which they delivered.

JJ went off to Sarries and soon disappeared via Wuss

He didn't disappear. He seems to be doing OK at Brive.

I read that he'd gone through some difficult times but is back on track now, thankfully.

Will retired when he left after World Cup!

I meant the first time he left us, for Tigers.

I think you'll find it was the same for Treadwell, capped against Japan last year, so I would'nt class him as discarded either.

I think the current 12 (whoever they are) can be classed as 'discarded' though. Can't help think looking at some of those coming in that 'we're' just book balancing, pay wise though. ie bringing in cheaper options to sit on the sidelines

I think you will always get that with the cap (Book Balancing).  It could be, Cheeseman goes, we bring in Northmore to replace.  One for the future maybe but also  cheaper than Cheeseman I would guess and can still do a job.  The money saved though could help pave the way for us being able to afford better cover for Care (Landajo).  Im not saying Cheeseman costs a lot, but every little bit.  Same could be said if Swaintson/McNulty go.  Is Kerrod just a cheaper option but similar results.  I might be being unfair to Kerrod, but just him as an example

Strettle has done okay
we had to let either Strets or Monye go due to salary cap. Ugo was a Lion later but Strets was not even an England player. So right decision

he left Tigers and came back to us to get away from Deano whom he maintained did not like him. He then ended up the last year playing for him at Quins!

Jono Ross played a few A league games for us, not sure if he was in our academy, but has done all right since he left.

He was in the academy for maybe half a season before he returned to SA. I think he was in the George Lowe/Chris York age group.

Joe Launchberry was in our academy and we released him. He has always said it gave him a kick up the back side when he went back to Worthing and then Wasps picked him up.

Launchbury didn't make it as far as the Academy IIRC, just the EPDG.

I suspect no one got more caps after leaving us (43) than Bruce Douglas.
