Anyone know what's happening with them? They're not listed under senior academy for next season, and I've not seen anything about senior contracts. Have they been farmed out to Championship sides? Apologies if I missed it.

TJ looks dynamic. Hope he's staying.

The rumour on twitter is that there’s one more signing to announce, and I suspect it is TJ up to the senior squad to replace Ash.

I suspect the delay in announcing this is down to the ongoing process with Ash and waiting for the outcome.

TJ proved himself ready to step up to the senior squad in my view so he would come in as 3rd choice hooker. Ashley, if he stays with us, could go back to full time back row option and bolster our options there (after any ban). Personally I’d be happier with the balance that brings to the squad.

Or maybe Ash moves to a coaching role?

I can’t see that happening. All indication is that Dai is restructuring his squad and coaching staff with the best he can get and afford in those positions. Ash has no coaching experience as far as I know so I doubt it would be the right answer to put him straight into a coaching role now. More likely he’d be worked in as an academy coach or assistant defence coach rather than filling one of the vacant full time positions.

I think Dai is likely to pick a coach by saying who is the best available I can afford, rather than taking an easy option of using Ash.

Looked at the squad list on the Offy and TJ is already listed in the full squad as are most of the leavers.

No, TJ is listed in the Academy Squad as he has been since he signed. BEN Harris is listed in the senior squad.


TJ is no longer listed in the Academy Squad details the club has put out recently. Hence the speculation of what his future is with us.
