From Ospreys via NZ....


RWC cover I guess.

The Tigers are understood to have offered him a one-year deal and the 23-year-old is intent on accepting it.

He will fill the gap in midfield at Welford Road left by another Welshman, former Ospreys and Scarlets man Gareth Owen, who has joined Newcastle Falcons.

It will be a chance for Thomas to revive his professional career.

Not sure I like the sound of the last bit..... but let's see how it goes.

5 tries in 18 for the Ospreys is a better return than most our our backs. We are light on backs in general, though more wing cover really, so it doesn't surprise me we are looking for more players.

My reaction was "Who?"!!

Another middle of the scale journeyman?

Once upon a time, we might have taken a bloke like this and improved him. Nowadays .......

At the moment, I'm more interested in what fine tuning is happening to the coaching team/a DOR appointment than the playing squad tbh.

Sounds a typical cheap Tigers signing.

Squad churn.

A departure after one year - waiting for it to happen.

Have to say our recruitment to date for next season looks pretty average at best.

That's why my ST will not be taken up this time.
