Just over two hours after the last announcement but still more recruitment needed

Assuming no more unknown leavers we need

Two second rows of international class to replace Spencer and O'Callaghan
A high quality back up scrum half for FH ( Sam Hidalgo Clyne would be good)
An international fly half ( Weir would be good) and a back up

Surprised we haven't signed any Cheetahs or maybe they are next after the Edinburgh raid

I hope that isn't it

I would say 1 x international lock & 1 x Premiership standard lock would suffice. Somebody in the mould of Elliot Stooke, good player but won't be lost to internationals.

I agree we need an international standard fly-half and Weir would do nicely, but I think Shillcock is coming along very well and will be number one in a year or two.

Iíd say thereís still quite a bit of work to do. To say Iím disappointed with Denton is an understatement. I was really hoping to see a back row of himself,Du Preez and Lewis. For me though we still need

Tight head prop x 1 (Biyi is leaving)
Locks x 2 (replace DOC & Spencer)
Iíd still like a big ball carrying 8 and play Du Preez at 6
Scrum Half (SHC) x 1
Fly Half x 2 (replace Lance & Heathcote)
Full Back x 1 (Ben likely to leave)

What AJ said.

Cox was very, very good on Saturday when he came on, as was Bresler. Both really upped the intensity and could fill those voids at 6 and 4.

More recruitment needed and, no doubt, still more to come.

Darren Barry is beginning to flower, and if he can bulk up a bit over the summer could well become a regular starter.

Why do we need another 9?

Otherwise I agree with a tighthead, lock(s), a 10, another centre and a fullback.

Because two might be leaving.

I thought Dowsett signed on earlier this season/last season?

Bresler has played well but I would like us to sign a 4 to help to beef up the pack.

We need premiership quality depth at 3, 4/5, 10 and 15 to climb up the table

Contract length is the question I suppose.

Not convinced on Barry I'm afraid, too many missed tackles (awful attempt to tackle the replacement front row for Exe in the AW game) and he doesn't break the line OR offload.

Very daft penalty for in at the side early on as well. Also not convinced.

Havenít seen enough of him to be convinced or otherwise .

Fair enough to comment on individual incidents, but have we really seen enough to make overall judgements?
