Just seen a report that Ollie Atkins is off to France next season.

Looks like we’re a little short in the engine room next season. Please could Dean Mumm come out of retirement?

Failing that, do you think that Will Witty and Tom Price may be able to help out?

Good luck Ollie. I’ve enjoyed watching you do your bit for the Chiefs

Hasn't it been suggested for a while that he was heading off?

Good luck to him and best of luck in a lovely area of France.

It was rumoured he was going to Falcons, perhaps relegation put a block on that!

Have Chiefs ever confirmed the signing of Jacques Vermeulen, who can cover lock and back row? Articles in SA assume he is heading our way:

Good point, well made. I do remember hearing about Will Witty but have to admit the announcement about Tom Price had passed me by. Another one of the Under 20’s World Cup winning crop. Rob Hunter’s little black book must be almost empty by now.

Another of that U20s squad is available if Rob Hunter wants to add to his collection, as Henry Purdy has been released by Gloucester.

Tom Price’s Instagram showed him with a fairly hefty knee brace ...



Wake up and smell the Chiefs!

I don't think we need to buy in more younger players. IMO what we need is a seasoned pro, like we had with Geoff Parling.

Alun Wyn Jones is out of contract at the Ospreys, I would love to see him at Sandy Park for a season or two.

Not the only player leaving for one reason or another.

Too old, but he we would help address 'part' of our 'supposed' decline in those final 20 minutes of the weekend's final. Saracens made a point that having a group of leaders, still on the field, was a big part of their resurgence and inner belief that dragged them over the line.
Certainly with both Yeandle and White off that didn't help our cause. Eventually a young(ish) side will acquire that experience, but as a short term assistance a Parling type person would be no bad thing.

As to Alun Wyn we know it won't happen, but for passion and leadership what a warrior.
