Hope this isn't true we will need him in the Premiership next season - just hope the Saulo signing isn't as cover because they think he's going?(Sm159)

He is supposed to be contracted to us for another year so I don't think he'll be going quite yet...

Why would he want to go to a failing team?

I'm sure next year is his final year of his three year contract?

He showed his commitment to Irish when we went down, now, with the real prospect of going back to being a Premiership team, I hope, and think that he will want to stay and help to move us forward next season.

Unless teams like Sarries, Exeter or Wasps came knocking, I can't see him wanting to move to any other English club

Bath, have a bit class for once. Good luck in your recruitment, please stop piggy backing our hard work. It's why you haven't had the success you could have done.
Not an angry message, just an option

Pretty sure last year Exeter were being touted as the front runners to sign him when we were demoted. Some stating it was a done deal, glad he stayed. I feel his and others grit and determination pulled us up in the second half of the Carnegie match

Ben won't be going to Bath, he doesn't like the place or ethos of the club.

He won't go... can imagine the annoyance of you all regarding Bath effectively eating up the Irish team through Bruce Craig's pocket... I can only apologise on his behalf!

Great respect to Ben for staying when others fled. Matt Symons, Maitlland etc. Why would he want to move now, assuming we go up. If he were to go, he'd go to a team who might win something.

I suspect this "article" is the origin of the rumour. Given that Israel Dagg and Fekitoa are on that list I'm guessing it's more pipe-dream than fact.

Very charitable use of speech marks there, Griff!

Bath supporters say who they'd like the club to sign via social media & it ends up in the local rag... outstanding j'ism

To be fair, the article just does ask the Bath fans for their thoughts and votes on a fan wish list.

Why don't Bath grow there own players instead of poaching. Don't they have an academy of any note?
