He's not had much success in Japan - I think I read that he's not played a senior game whilst there.
Gives us a year to find a Test-level hooker after the World Cup
My thoughts too - though I don't think we will have considering he'll be missing for world cup/world cup stand down and he's a bit in the lurch after his deal in France fell through
Does that mean Arundell is hacked off with England selectors already? He shouldn't be, so far has only shown potential. Or, will LI players get some relaxation of the rules like Wasps and Wuss players did for a while?Bronzbronx wrote: ↑Fri Jun 16, 2023 9:10 pmhttps://www.rugbydump.com/news/london-i ... confirmed/
They reckon Racing have Arundell
No certainty of release by their clubs?RinTin wrote: ↑Mon Jun 19, 2023 8:23 amRFU cannot hope to maintain the ignoring of players in other leagues for the coming season. It simply isn't possible with the number of players being forced overseas increasing.
Personally I have always supported the rule - keep our best English players in our league. It always made sense. BUT everything has changed with 3 clubs failing and around 120 players having to go where ever they can to simply work. This season needs to be an exception.
2023/2024 season should not impose any restrictions on players Steve can select pure and simple.
No criticism intended RinTin, just an observation. Apologies if it came over that way!RinTin wrote: ↑Tue Jun 20, 2023 8:46 amIt could be this thread, the Training Squad thread or the Players Leaving Premiership Clubs thread I suppose.
Sorry, i was only replying to the previous 2 comments which were discussing whether LI players moving abroad could get picked internationally. Didn't feel I was shoe horning a topic in.
That's the one - just googled his name and he was 18 when he signed a long term contract with us in December, bit young to be pressing for first team honours but should be getting some game time in the prem cup
I think that this is possibly too light/junior. The early Prem Cup games will in essence be the pre-season games so I can see us playing a team which has a greater balance between Jets (e.g. Woodman), fringe (S Bedlow) and gun XV (a du Preez or two).Halifaxshark wrote: ↑Tue Jun 27, 2023 8:47 pmCinti is a brilliant player and he will be great at Sarries!

Anyone else dare to predict a prem cup team?
Surely you want JLDP starting, even when Wiese back? He's arguably our best player, certainly top 3. But I agree with eveything else, some cases to change the bench but not much in it.Halifaxshark wrote: ↑Tue Jun 27, 2023 8:59 pmPrem team prediction
