A side note in today's team announcement....

Ed Coulson comes in at 13 for Jamie Elliot who has agreed a move away from the club

No further info appears to be available - wonder what that's all about then?

I imagine it has yet to be announced by the club he was joining.

In my opinion it is not a loss, as I couldn't work out where he should play and frees up money for someone else.

I didn't see him as a 13 given we have been weak defensively there, wasn't fast enough to be a Blues winger, so that leaves him at 15 and Lane is our best 15.

I agree TryBlues, I guess we've been approached and given performances have let him go with our blessing. It's a shame I was very excited about him coming. But if Tapley and Czekaj are back soon we can probably get by! Fly half on the other hand.....

Me too. I seemed to come away from every game thinking'was Jamie Elliott actually playing?'. He certainly hasn't left a very deep impression on me. Shame, I was really looking forward to seeing him.

Still well thought of at the Gardens. Will always be remembered for a full length of the pitch try at Leinster to clinch Saints win in Dublin AND another last minute try to beat Leicester at FG. Good luck to the lad wherever he is going next.

Yes good luck to him, he didnít really make an impact with the Blues but then he wasnít really with us long. Hope it works out for him.

I'm pretty sure some of our knowledgeable contingent on here were saying he was the exact type of quality signing we should be making from the Premiership. Just shows there are a lot of average players who are just squad fillers in the Premiership.

Was not impressed, never looked interested was probably the highest paid player as well.

Guess it means we have some cash to recruit...

He was our marquee signing, I expected a lot more - still it'll give others opportunities to flourish.
