Jackman really can't settle on a hooker mind.

Just saw Simon Thomas tweet Leon Brown has suffered a second concussion. If that's so, I wonder if that means the first wasn't really dealt with properly?

Are you sure ? I've read it that he suffered a concussion so he hasn't been picked INCASE he suffers another.

North's heading East, I hear.
Does that mean the South becomes West?

Good question.

Robin Davey has said we are announcing somebody Friday, so
I assumed it was him all along. Can’t imagine who else we have signed at the moment.

Interested in this 16 team prem suggestion. Think i've had it with the pro scene. Dominated by politics and property developing.

I heard we've signed a prop, but that might be an emergency loan kind of thing.

Every time we get somebody from Worcester, I wish it was Josh Adams or Sam Lewis Very Happy

I thought they had a Georgian prop who was half decent, but there was no sign of him on their website.

'Head coach Bernard Jackman has described Harri Keddie’s decision to sign a new Dragons deal as a huge boost for the Rodney Parade region.

'Back-row starlet Keddie, 21, put pen to paper on a fresh contract that will keep him with the Men of Gwent for the next three seasons.

'Keddie joins Joe Davies, Jack Dixon and James Benjamin as well as Welsh internationals Leon Brown, Elliot Dee, Ollie Griffiths and Cory Hill in extending his stay at the Dragons.'

Great news about Keddie.

Was just about to look at their props, funnily enough.

Just read the Argus write-up of the Bordeaux game, sounds like we played well, albeit in defeat. And Chris Kirwan wouldn't say it was a good performance if it wasn't!

Yes, when he played for Ebbw, I never thought he would make it to this level, but fair play to the kid, in all honesty though he did not get much of a look in at Bath, but he was always better than his peers at Welsh prem/championship level. He also helped Ebbw Vale win the prem, and he was picked up by them whilst Merthyr were down the division.

Put it this way, he is better than Dorian Jones, in my opinion. Very Happy

Never heard of him to be honest, it seems like another wasted signing. After a lot of talk of improving the squad depth, the front 5 in particular, we sign another backline player who is third/fourth choice at their team - at least he's been playing pro rugby I guess unlike some others. If we don't get serious about improving the squad then next season we'll be right where we are now.

I see Scarlets have also said they are actually interested in North. I never did believe Pivac when he said they weren't in the market or something along those lines. I think he'll go back there. Good choice for him and Scarlets.

The fail are linking Josh Adams, with a contract buyout, with a move to the Dragons for next season.

Josh Lewis is a pretty tidy player, from what I saw of him at PYS during his time with us. He isn't going to be a quality Europe level player, but he is not going to let you down in the Pro14. Id say he is probably on a par with O'Brien.

I can see one of the pro teams doing that, given the new ruling and if he gets a Team Wales cap, I suspect he will be keen to move too. Maybe Worcester would be willing to not hinder his international ambitions, but if not I’m sure we could offer Pat Howard in exchange.

Good team from us, for sure. They seem to be a little weaker too, so we have to target the win. I am not holding out much hope for the BP we need, nor to beat them by the required amount. It will all be moot anyway, as even if every other result went our way, I can’t see London Irish losing in Krasny Yar (or however you write it).
