Like the Chris Harris one, im not actually bothered about it...i think we have better coming through.

Hammersley's kicking is aimless and put us in danger more than not.

Hmm, slightly disappointed Tigers couldn't put something together to bring him to WR. We need a bit more cover in the back three, particularly at 15. Murphy has a good track record improving fullbacks as well so could have worked out nicely.

If Sale keep recruiting, perhaps we can pick up Sam and Luke James Smile

To be honest i think you can find a better FB Sam. Ive never hid my criticsim of him or Harris. I firmly believe and have always stated Alex tait is a way better alround premiership full back.

He may well do ok with his running in the Sale backline, but its his alround game thats an issue, and i dont believe can be improved. Especially his one on one tackling.

Sam James is one of, if not the most, underrated player in the league. I'm a big fan of his and would happily have him slot in at 12 alongside Manu. Luke is a good young all rounder as well and I'd happily take him at WR. Sadly I think they both have long term deals at Sale.

As I said Geordie is great at bringing on players as fullbacks. Just look at TV, he's gone from a live wire winger who struggled to get a Super Rugby contract because of his all round game to one of the best fullbacks in the AP. His kicking and work under the high ball are unrecognisable. We could have done similar with Hanmersley.

We have got a good young fullback on the way through who could push on and be a future international but he's very young at present and still with England under 18 s.

Sounds like cap space is the issue there.

Apparently Blommetjies wanted to stay but there just wasn't budget to bring him in. It's a shame as he played well in his brief time at Welford Road.

Tigers still need back three depth with Veainu and May at the RWC then inevitably needing significant rest and/or rehab time.

Depends whether Scarlets wanted a fee for his release as well. He's still a got a year left on his contract there.

Scarlets will lose Halfpenny and possibly Steff Evans to the RWC but they have a few wingers. Could be in both parties interest but time will tell.

Blommetjies feels like a throw back in some ways. From one angle he looks too skinny to play modern rugby then from another he looks to have a slight pot belly that indicates why Scarlets told him to improve his conditioning!  Laugh

He showed good feet and commitment to defensive work in his brief outings though.

Either he doesn't have any offers or he jumped ship once and regretted so is staying. You never know he might have the club closer to his heart than you think. He should tear it up in the Championship.

Mcguigan would have had offers imo.

He could do a job in plenty of Premiership squads.

Blommetjies didn't seem to feature much for Scarlets. On the whole both their new South Africans have been underwhelming although Cassiem seems to be coming good now and will be a handy guy to have at the beginning of next season. If Blommetjies has improved then same for him.

Ruan Botha is a good signing for LI. Dragons were close to signing him, a shame we just about missed out... Looks like LI have quite the monster pack next season and they could approach the top 6.

Yeah very true Sam on both counts. Maybe his move to you guys has shifted his thoughts a little and he's decided this is the club he wants to be with having come through the academy.

Well, fair do's to him...and yes he should be very good in the championship.

It's not really transfer news per se, but since it does involve squad news I'll chuck it in here.

Wasps have promoted seven from the academy to the first team squad for the 19/20 season:

Tom Willis (20) - Jack's younger brother, also back rower, Eng U20 capt.
Gabriel Oghre (20) - Hooker, also Eng U20 player
Will Porter (20) - SH, Eng U18 representative
Tim Cardall (22) - Lock, Eng Students representative
Callum Sirker (21) - Wing, Eng 7s
Owain James (22) - FB
Sam Spink (19) - Centre, Eng U18 / U20

Some exciting talent coming through. Hopefully alongside the big name players they'll shine!

Is it true that Tom Willis is potentially better than Jack? If thats the case...thats some statement.

Dunno about Tom being better than Jack but I know the hooker Oghre is rated very highly.

Tom Willis is primarily an 8, he looks a bit thicker set than Jack, but from what I've seen plays very much in the same mould - although maybe more powerful in the carry.

We seem to be doing something right in the hooker department, with Oghre coming up this season, and Alfie Barbeary tearing up trees (https://www.therugbypaper.co.uk/features/young-gun/32383/young-gun-alfie-barbeary-wasps-england-u18-hooker/). Hanging on to them might be the challenge, I think.

Mike Delaney Highlanders defence coach to Scarlets, kinda old news now though. A coach that I guess will suit their style of play, good attack and a sort of leaky defence Smile.

Saracens have signed another Welsh prop, 21 year old Sam Wainright from RGC. Are Sarries set on developing good prop forwards for us, or do they just need big lumps to hold tackle bags for their even bigger lumps?

Graham Rowntree rumoured to Munster.

I'd love Wig back at Tigers and was hoping it might happen after spending the RWC with Georgia.

I'm unsure on Wig. I mean as a player he was phenomenal. As a coach last time out at Quins though, that didn't look good. Time at England was a mixed bag. A stretch at Munster might be better for his career, Van Graan and that mean Munster pack should be quite instructive. Going to Munster now and Tigers later might work out better for everyone.

Flannery if he hasn't picked up a new job already would be very welcome at Tigers. Ford Snr looks likely to stay so he can take on defensive duties. Bakewell should go as well and Flannery would be a good choice to add some steel to our 8.

Sounds promising. Glynn is an asset to the club he's just an asset that has been given too much to do. Some of which isn't really in his key skillset. Get him back to scouting and remove the operations burden, a good choice.

I'd be pretty happy with that, he's looked quality when I've seen him. I've been saying we're still a player light in the back three, and this addresses that. Obviously bad news for Newcastle, but unfortunately it seems he won't be the only one leaving.

In other news, Wasps have re-signed James Gaskell on a new deal. Which is nice.

Well we have another young lad 19yo Morgan Passman who is breaking try scoring records for Blaydon, so hopefully  he will get blooded next season...

BUt it would be nice to actually keep and play some of the talented kids we produce!

Dean is slow at giving kids gametime....its almost like a trust issue.

That's likely to be the case wherever he goes after Glaws. Possibly be worse after another year of twiddling his thumbs on the bench behind Cipriani.

Will Skelton is looking at an arrangement which will allow him to play in the World Cup. Currenr rules mean he will need to sign for Super Rugby, so Saracens will lose him for at least a season, unless something else can be arranged.

Nothing on the Owen Williams front, but rumour has it Callum Sheedy is to drop out of the England squad and move back to Wales....

He is a good club player. Not likely to get capped ever but the kind of club player that is popular with fans. Mobile, physical and decent skillset. I wouldn't have minded Tigers picking him up.

That’s the impression I had. Anyway, Tovey did go to Cardiff. RE Sheedy, he dodged the game against France U20 so was keeping his options open. I think he is the type of player we should be targeting seeing as we don’t produce that many good fly-halves these days, unless he has no wish to ever play for us of course.

I think he is the type of player we should be targeting seeing as we don’t produce that many good fly-halves these days, unless he has no wish to ever play for us of course.

You've got Sam Costelow on the way through. He's very highly thought of here in the East Midlands. Exciting player who we should start to see appearing in and around the first team squad next season.

Not sure about Costelow, he seems a bit of a luxury player and we already have one in Matthew Morgan. It’ll be difficult to lure some of these guys back from big English clubs though.

Ospreys needed 8 cover. Is he any good? I think Boyde would have been a good signing for you too.

He is a good club player. Not likely to get capped ever but the kind of club player that is popular with fans. Mobile, physical and decent skillset. I wouldn't have minded Tigers picking him up.

Sam, thanks for that, if what you say is accurate, and that has been backed up apparently from Gloucester fans, that is exactly what we need, our 8 for the past few years Dan Baker has been out all last season, although he was expected back for at least the last month of the past season. A bit of competition for that position is exactly what we need, King did a decent job, but his best position is 6. A couple more signings in back up positions has been alluded to from Ospreys staff with 10 and 15 my hopes. We've been very fortunate with Dan Evans and IMO Luke Price is not the answer when Anscombe is away, unless Ieuan Evans's son Cai can make a meteoric rise, but I think he's going to be a better 15 than 10.

Anyone know where Flannery is going yet?

Tigers aren't big on luxury players. Plus he'll have Ford as a mentor so we should see his tactical game develop nicely. He's got all the attacking skills to unlock a defence and his kicking game off the tee is good.

Why do you say that out of interest LT?

Flannery wouldn't be my first choice forwards coach but wouldn't be upset by him coming in either.

KC,

Having come into contact with him at charity dinner and a coaching conference I have a little disquiet about him being able to settle within the area.
