Rugby Inside Line have just tweeted that Ellis Genge has recently visited the club from a reliable source. All Ill say is in a heart beat would I have him here.

I was told only yesterday from a tigers fan that he wanted to leave Tigers because he thinks hes underpaid.

I agree itd be great to have him on board but RIL are about as reliable as first great western so im gonna back the fact that this is just more utter b*ll*cks from them.

I thought that there was a comment on the Bristol board about him returning to them, so may be leaving Tigers . Not sure he would want to return home.
It would be nice to pinch a Tigers forward though.

I think theyre pretty good with their rumours to be honest Sauce. Their accuracy is pretty good. In response to their tweet another guy who is in that field replied to them saying hes heard the same

I dont think he will go back to Briz. Remember him saying he had to leave there because of how much trouble he was getting in being in the city with his background

he said on rugby tonight that he would one day like to go back to Bristol.

He's 100% in contract next season though so we will see.

I take it back then...he can go back to Briz after hes played for us until hes 35

Great I love me attitude, wouldn't touch him with a bargepole. Not because of skill level, he would damage the dressing room.

Perhaps he got caught short whilst on the M5 heading for Bristol

Must be true because I just tweeted about how good he and Nick would be and Nick just liked it ha ha!

In all seriousness though he would bring a much needed steel to our pack that we seem to lack and a huge desire to win...thats just my thoughts anyway

I think he's a really good prop and could be the best in England, I also think it's harsh to say he has an 'I love me' attitude without knowing what he's getting paid.

He would improve our pack but I still think our second row, followed by our backrow is more of a concern than our stocks at loose head.
Then again I am a fan of Ethan Waller.

If we are going off rumours started by Rugby Inside Line then he should be turning up here with Manu Tuilagi, but then again according to them we were going into administration last summer. As I said, as reliable as First Great Western.

A more accurate headline would probably be "Ellis Genge's agent persuades him to visit Sixways in order to bolster his hand in negotiations with Tigers.

Our pack certainly needs beefing up.

I didn't think that we could talk to other teams' players until Jan. Or is that policed in a similar way to the salary cap?

Most players talk way before January with other clubs,but clubs cant approach until then.

Genge carries hard and would be a welcome addition to our front row which is probably a bit lightweight

Genge is one mean bigger who enjoys hurting the opposition. Have him? You bet......but he would be expensive - just kike Mr Teo - although he would want to play for us I presume.

Ethan Waller? He must be given the opportunity to show what he can do with regular appearances. PErsonally, I think Blackie has yet to start firing properly.

I think we are seeing the best of Mr Black, he is not much more than waller.

Genge has confirmed that he didn't visit the club. Another false rumour to add to Rugby Inside Line's growing tally.

Not actually what he said though was it...

Apparently stopped at David Lloyd for a cheese sandwich on Monday morning. As one does...

Haha USA, if youre going to be pedantic and say its not what he actually said though was it? You could at least follow it up with the whole of what he actually said rather than a cryptic message which makes it seem like he may have been talking to someone at the club...

Genge grew up in Bristol and plays for Leicester. He says he popped into David Lloyd as the M5 was closed cause of an accident (this is true as i was in said traffic). Putting 2 and 2 together hes obviously just been driving back to Leicester from Bristol, got stuck in traffic and decided to get off for some food. So in the circumstances it pretty mch is what one does.... Hes also been winding everyone up all afternoon on twitter implying hes signed for all sorts of clubs... fake news that hes signing for us...
