Apparently we are going to sign Cooper-Woolley on a “lucrative” contract. Solid option for a prop.

I would be interested in us signing either McIntyre or Mullan as well if it’s true that they are available. Plus getting McIntyre would add to the NW numbers at the Club.

Academy numbers, as well.

I wasn't too sure on McIntyre when he was starting to graduate from the academy, but it's hard to judge props at such a young age - he's developed into a good prem-standard prop. Would be happy to see him return.


Always been a fan of Mullan.

I'd take Simpson too whilst we're at it! Nothing like a bit of role reversal on recent seasons!

That’s great news if true, I think he’s one of the more underrated props I the premiership, £300,000 doesn’t seem excessive to me for a decent tightrhead

Lots of "rumours" about players leaving Wasps........if there was ever a time to get Tommy Taylor back - it's now!

If they were all there for the taking I would take TT, McIntyre and JCW as a job lot.

McIntyre - would provide a v. good rotation option with Harrison; with Flynn & Pope younger/development options.

Taylor - everyone knows what he brings. I would have him as first choice and would consider letting Webber go at the end of next season. This would then allow Neild, Langdon and Dolly to develop. i would even be tempted to loan on of them to a Championship club to get consistent first team opportunities at hooker.

JCW - Good option and would add to the mix with John as a backup and Jones as a younger option.


Despite previous issues with Wasps having a preference for SS trained players; there must be some issue at that Club if the rumours of all the departures are true. I hope we don't see them jump around location again without ever settling and establishing themselves.

If we could get TT back then we could loan one of Neild, Langdon or Dolly to Wasps perhaps?!

Flynn is travelling with the squad to Bordeaux so maybe he’s nearly ready. Maybe he’ll even play one day!

Of the Wasps tight heads, I'd say the best is Brookes who would have been a nice pickup last year before he went to wasps. Cooper Wooley is a v good player. Stephen Jones is a big fan which always makes me skeptical, but he's suffered with injury for a while hasn't he? You'd think there was more upside for not so much current difference in Will Stuart who is also rumoured to be on the move.

Agree with others on TT.

Macintyre has made up into a very solid premiership player. Cant be sure he's so much better than a fit and firing Flynn or Bristow though.

TT is a fantastic player when fit, he's been broken more times than he has been fit.

For me at hooker, Langdon has moved above Neild, so Neilds place at 2 must be under review with Dolly coming through. Dai young was after Neild a couple of years ago, maybe a deal to be done.

Strange to see us sign a loosehead mid season after the arrival of Bristow and the imminent return of Flynn

Looks a beast from the clips I've seen, though
