His defensive work is still strong too, he might not have the explosive pace to burn wingers in attack but he still uses the pace he does have to get through a lot of defensive work.

The rumour coming from Fissler is that MOC wants to bring in some of his own players and a few of the current squad will be cut to accommodate it. If Croft is one of those cut then he better hope that the players he bring in make the grade. Injuries have taken their toll but he is still one of the most popular players with fans and rightly viewed as a Tigers legend. If he's cut to accommodate a project player that doesn't come off then it won't go down well with fans.

If Tom does leave Welford Road then Japan would be an excellent destination for his skill set. In French div 2 he could still have a very positive impact on most sides.

Harrison is the other rumoured name. Croft people might understand, particularly if he heads off for a nice pension top up (dome of the Aussie Super 15 sides could with him organising their lineout). Harrison well I'm not sure many fans would forgive that he's a local lad that puts his body on the line every game. He's a bit of a cult hero who is good enough to start for some teams in the league.

Manasa Saulo from Toulon to London Irish being rumoured on Twitter amongst other places online. 

Would suggest if true that Petrus du Plessis is also following the Jim Hamilton route and retiring rather than coming to us as planned.

So that's Hogg, Seymour, Sarto and Masaga competing for back 3 slots with the likes of Rory Hughes and Lee Jones very able deputies. I like it. Very Happy

...but we do need more full back cover.

Looks like Rennie is preparing for the international window - I think Glasgow are going to do really well under this guy.

Petrus Du Plessis rumoured to be joining Dragons. Ianto has had to retire unfortunately, so we're trying to get in touch with Etzebeth.

No luck with Etzebeth unfortunately. Du Plessis is keen, however as he is England qualified he is waiting to see if he is called up to address England's TH crisis. Dragons now rumoured to be in talks with Pierre Spies.
