Biyi Alo. 6'2", almost 22 stone.

Decent pedigree, with Sarries and Worcester on his CV, and you certainly get a lot of Biyi for your money! smiling smiley

Look forward to seeing him play.

I think he played against us Lboro Students 3 or 4 years ago. Assuming he is I seem to recall him doing a job on our scrum.

We were wondering who he was in the warm up Saturday. Built like a big 8. Will definitely increase our raw size and sounds like hes got a good foundation already at only 24!

Unsurprising really by now that Rowland had identified an opportunity to presumably solve an issue before wed noticed it.

Sounds like another step in the right direction.

Yes, I'd seen him around for the last 2-3 weeks and been wondering the same thing. I had a quick chat with him on Saturday. Seems keen.

If you want to see him in action, try this.

The first seven minutes or so are what you'd expect - scrummaging. After that it gets to be a lot more fun. He seems to enjoy ball carrying.

Judging by that he ought to be capable of carrying a few opponents kicking and screaming over the line.
Love a good hand-off too.

Very impressive and a big lump. Cov supporters will be struggling with pronunciation, so what will they be shouting.
