Silly Season Transfer Rumours 17/18

First topic message reminder :

Rumours are that I want to move to another company because my boss is an @rse.

And there's something to those rumours, I can assure you.

Been an ongoing rumour since he made his debut for Wales. Be a bit of a surprise if he left the club that made him. Not like Wales are likely to drop him.

If his contract is up, does he not have to move to Wales to stay eligible?

As he is second choice at Exeter, I can see him moving come the end of his current contract.

Define second choice. He's started as many games as Williams this season hasn't he? Baxter is very good at rotating his front row resources.

Good point on the contract though. He could be one of the exceptions and picked anyway. Quality tightheads don't growing trees and keeping him at Exeter where his game time is carefully monitored and where the coaches have a reputation for developing front row players might be a smart move.

So Tigers signing a Argie 9 as injury cover.
Felipe Ezcurra

25 year old, former U20's captain, but just seems to be on the fringe of the Jaguares squad though.

Simmons and Harrison injured atm? if so with Lenny's niggle and likely England absences this is probably needed.

Think Harrison is nearly back though.
But yeh it's needed.

Cheap injury cover for a couple of months I'd have thought.

Rumours are that we have signed Fly half Tom Swiel with immediate effect.

And that we are due to sign Ealing Prop Tampin for next season.

Tim Swiel is a real good prem quality flyhalf or 15, not sure about his brother Tom.

Quins are probably a bit guilty of under utilising him, he is seriously rapid, good passing game, needs to work on his kicking game and game management. But a good Prem quality option to have.

Joel Hodgson just isn't coming on so I guess he'll be away and Swiel will be a good signing for us.

Im seriously underwhelmed by Flood aswell

Hodgson is a good option GF, he's just had a few off games. Swiel is ok but not exactly sure why he'd be a target apart from having a genuine 3rd choice option. We should really have kept Willis tbh.

We've been saying that for years Sgt. Hodgson just isn't going to be what we want...though I appreciate budget restrictions mean he is there.

Whats happening with Connon aswell?

Yeah losing Willis was a big blow. I still don't get that one.

You can't have 3 front line FH's though GF, there needs to be lower options in the squad. Hodgson is an able backup for me. He provides good impact and generally plays well when called upon.

I've not seen Swiel play for a while tbh, he looked ok in patches a few seasons back.

That's a good move for them, to finally get that off their backs.

Yes, great to have finally sorted out a buyer - hopefully it might bring some additional investment in players and stability to the club. Lots of unrest amongst the Worcester fans though about McCrory and his motives.

Since my last post the speculation on the Worcester message board has reached fever pitch with many posters  already completely disillusioned with the new buyers and the lack of any statement from them as yet. Some posters have been through publicly available records which seem to suggest (from what I can make out) that loans to buy the club have been leveraged against the P shares and that there is a clause in there that, if Worcester are relegated, the P shares can be sold. It has been further mooted that, if relegation transpired, this might be an opportunity for the other 12 P share holders to buy Worcester’s shares and ring fence the league. At that point Worcester become a Championship team at best and Sixways' assets are stripped and further profits made for the investors.

I hope that this is all just paranoia but it does seem to have a certain convenience to it.

Time will tell I suppose but supporter morale is very low already. All the team can do is try and win and therefore stay up. This starts with a massive home match against Bristol tomorrow.
