First topic message reminder :

With a few players announcing their departures, and few named to replace them, I thought it'd be useful to have an in-out list.

Also a good place to post any rumours or rumours of rumours.

Let me know if I'm missing anyone?!

I'd say scrum half is weak for Edinburgh. S-H-C is a clear front runner with a significant drop in quality to Kennedy, Fowles and Glashan (although they may obviously improve .

Really don't know why Hart was moved to Glasgow given the above, plus the fact that they already have Pyrgos, Blair and Price. If Hart had stayed at Edinburgh I think both teams will have had the right balance at 9.

I thought Glashan had been released, not in the Academy line up and no contract. Never quite made the grade.

OK,  EDP signed 2014 played through age grade, but not U20s, been down South for a while. Young but obviously promising, basically a Glashan replacement.

Shame about Glashan, I had heard good things.

Maybe we can convert Andries Strauss into a scrum half.

Another question for Edinburgh is what has happened with Cochrane, Hilterbrand, Leonardi and Dominguez? Their contracts were all up this year but they weren't named in the leaving dinner and there's been no mention of new deals.

Looking at the squad list the only one still there is Cochrane, which is fine by me - he's the only player I would have kept! He'll do a good job for us if Ford and McInally are away at the WC, George Turner on the bench.

Also, atiga is no longer listed as a 'player'! Yahoo

Dominguez has signed for Cognac in the French third tier. Ambitious club who have made a few big signings and a lovely part of the world.

A rather opaque Tweet suggests that Colin 'Budgie' Gregor is retiring from rugby.
Or Sevens. Or something. It's really not clear.
Perhaps he's going to stop buying children's clothes to avoid the tax. Allegedly.

Glasgow have announced some temporary signings to provide cover during the RWC.

The GUINNESS PRO12 champions have signed stand-off Rory Clegg and Scottish club props George Hunter, Gary Strain and Steven Findlay on short-term contracts to provide added depth and competition during the Rugby World Cup.

http://www.glasgowwarriors.org/news/15/07/17/four-players-signed-ahead-new-campaign

Not desperately exciting, and I won't add them to the above list unless they sign full contracts, but it's potentially a good opportunity for these club players and hopefully Toonie unearths a gem or two in the process.

I suppose that's slightly unfair on Clegg who has played at a high level. Sadly already tied to England.

This is the most interesting quote:

Gregor Townsend wrote:"We’re also close to adding further depth to our squad ahead of the new season."

Though 'depth' makes it sound like more of the same. Got to assume all the major signings are done now.

That would be quite funny. Poor Blake came to Scotland to get a chance at a 7 shirt, yet Hardie may block him here as he did in Otago.

London Scottish have signed World Rugby Junior Player of the Year James Chisholm on a dual deal.

Normally these things wouldn't be of note, but this guy is tipped for the very top.

We could do with one (especially if SQ) but we do have solid enough options currently.

It certainly isn't as desperate as the Glasgow tighthead situation!

Solomons has said as much in several different interviews, but I suspect it will come down to how his knees hold up.

If only he could have a Russell/Bennett breakthrough season for us, that would be good!

He’s listed as an Edinburgh player in the Tonga squad listing here

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_World_Rugby_Pacific_Nations_Cup

Can’t see it being overly popular with the Edinbrugh faithful give

A – we don’t really need another back 3 player
B – He is NSQ
C – His appearance will mean less gametime for Hoyland/Brown etc.

I spotted that too. I'm pretty ok with the signing to be honest. While I absolutely hope it doesn't mean less time for the likes of Hoyland and Robbins, I hope it does mean we see more of Tonks at 10, Helu and Allen at 13 and less of Cuthbert altogether.

Sadly if this guy signs it isn’t becoming overly difficult to come up with an (almost) entire NSQ Edinburgh backline:

9 –
10 – Burleigh
11 – Helu
12 – Strauss
13 – Beard
14 – Allen
15 – Katoa (if he’s coming)

I don’t think Glasgow would even come close to a full NSQ backline. Which is a fair point actually – surely Glasgow’s need for a winger is greater than ours?? Even if Big T does come!

Compare that to an SQ backline

9 – Hidalgo-Clyne
10 – Tonks
11 – Hoyland
12 – Scott
13 – Dean
14 – Fife
15 – Cuthbert

I know which one I’d prefer!

Combined backline of

9 – Hidalgo-Clyne
10 – Tonks
11 – Helu
12 – Scott
13 – Dean/Beard (no idea what to expect of Dean)
14 – Fife
15 – Cuthbert

The problem being that Burleigh isn’t in there, but to accommodate him you’d have to move Matt Scott (12) to 13. That may still be seen as a better option than Dean or Beard just now though. I personally don’t agree (Matt Scott needs a good run of games at 12 to get his form and confidence back) but what do I know!

You have a point, but I'd rather Edinburgh have a squad that is equipped to compete throughout the upcoming season that worry to much about the current SQ blend. The next generation is champing at the bit according to Solly (http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/sport/rugby/latest/alan-solomons-young-guns-hungry-for-pro12-action-1-3845630) and the squad could look very different pretty soon, with the very real prospect of the following back line in 1 or 2 season's time:  
9 – Hidalgo-Clyne
10 – Kinghorn
11 – Robbins / Hoyland
12 – Scott
13 – Dean/Beard (like you say we have no idea what to expect of Dean, but Sam should be qualified by then)
14 – Fife
15 – ???

I don't like the idea of us signing Katoa. Players like Hoyland, Robbins and Farndale will not simply become good players by virtue of the passing of time. They need to be starting games this season in order to improve and learn the game at that level. They will not get the skills by sitting in the stands watching a couple of Tongans running about.

We need a 10, not a winger.

Hoyland is absolutely ready, but farndale seems to have completely disappeared from any discussions and Robbins is very young still.

I agree with you though on this guy though. Unless he's being signed as a 15 only, in which case it makes a bit more sense.

Well remember we also have Nick McLennan (NSQ I believe) as cover at 15, unless we are letting him go. Aren't Cuthbert, McLennan and Brown sufficient?

As a 15 the signing makes a bit more sense, and I agree that Farndale and Robbins have a long way to go, but this guy would need to be pretty special to justify the signing in my book. With Helu and Allen both signed up and NSQ, I don't think we want to have the dubious honour, as you note above, of having 11 of a potential XV being NSQ.

1. 2. 3.Andress 4.Bresler 6.Coman 7.Du Preez 8.Manu 9. 10.Burleigh 11.Helu 12.Strauss 13.Beard 14.Allen 15.Katoa

Farndale isn't listed on the updated ER website or as an Academy player.

Robbins has been playing full back in NZ. Scoring trys and primary set place kicker.

McLennan is SQ whether he is good enough has yet to be determined. http://www.scotsman.com/sport/rugby/latest/edinburgh-rugby-tie-up-scots-qualified-trio-1-3309172

Is there also not a young guy from Ireland on the wing? McFarland or something. Is he anywhere near the first team?

Rossouw de Klerk allegedly stalked a young woman:

Hope he didn't forget his binoculars on his way out!

The real revelation is that there is young women in the Glasgow area laughing

Thanks for the correction. Still, I don't see Stuart Hogg losing too much sleep over his Scotland Jersey.

That's Nasi Manu arrived in Edinburgh - very much looking forward to seeing what he can do!

Hopefully he's still got some motivation left for his career - must be a hell of a come down from captaning the SR winning team to playing against zebre in front of a few thousand people in the rain...

He's only 26 so I suspect he'll have plenty motivation to make this move work. If it's true that Hardie is going to join Edinburgh, then we could have a pretty tasty back row during the World Cup:

6.Du Preez
7.Hardie
8.Manu

That's a serious back row.

26?? He's had a tough paper round!

I'm.assuming he'll start his own pre - season now and we might not see him until after the season has started.

We're not exactly short of back the options so there's no immediate rush.

Didn't realise Edinburgh (and Scotland) have got former Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at the Crusaders and S&C for both Wallabies and All Blacks as their Head of S&C.

True. Captain Coman, Roddy Grant, James Ritchie and Magnus Bradbury can provide ample cover until Manu has completing his Solomons-esque induction. I haven't seen photos, but I assume the Edinburgh squad have been forced to give Ben Atiga a piggyback up Arthur's Seat this summer, or something equally gruelling.

Edinburgh could actually be quite useful next season.

It says he's also been working with the Scotland squad as well ahead of the World Cup. Good pedigree. Whisper it quietly but the SRU are making some really good hires at the moment, Scott Johnson aside.

They've had a besting by all accounts.  So has every other team though.

We could be, if Solomons realises there are positions on the pitch outside of number 10!

Freudian slip there, old chap, since most teams bested the MFL last season.

With one or two rather odorous exceptions....

London Scottish have announced the double signing of Will Carrick-Smith from Exeter Chiefs and Tyrone Moran from Leinster.

Carrick-Smith is currently the tallest player in English rugby at 6'11, so shouldn't have many problems in the lineout!

Here are some highlights of hooker Moran

Apparently Hugh Blake has resolved the Kramer vs Kramer dispute by choosing the more successful parent who will give him lots of shiny trophies to play with as he grows up.

Glasgow now have 5 specialist opensides. Edinburgh have 2. 3 if Hardie joins as rumoured.
