With another contract extension of a player whom we have hardly seen this is really good news.
If fit, he has to play although I fear it may be the beginning of the end of CP, but full back is where he has to be.
The squad looks healthier each day and with July 1st upon us the new coaching team can get to work. Canít wait,

Can he play centre like Loki Crichton?

Is this the kick that as an opposition player he missed to keep us up, before he then moved to join us, having already signed for us?

There are two others in this club, I believe. Names Ward and Drahm come to mind?

Thats the one, right in front of the posts in the middle (the one even I could have kicked!)

Nanai is great running in open play but Iím just trying to remember what his kicking from hand is like?

Are you saying you're trying to remember as he never kicks out of hand or you genuinely can't remember?
I can't either! But as a natural 15 I'm sure he has!

I canít remember seeing him kick from hand and just wondered how effective he was thatís all! As you say clearly he must be reasonably good having played at 15!

I seem to remember that Shane Drahm stepped up and nailed the lot

It would have been - Worcester Warriors vs Northampton Saints
Saturday, April 30 2005 - won 21 -19. - Drahm's last game before joining us. We needed points and so did Saints, for Harlequins to go down. Can't find a match report though.

I'm pretty sure that Drahm got most if not all of his kicks, and Northampton very sportingly took him off early in the second half to avoid the conflict of interest. Wonderful day that - very hot, good game, good win, and both teams survived. The crowd shouted for Cecil who ran on to the pitch at the end to general ecstasy.

I remember waiting for the Quins result and how the Saints fans went from agony to ecstasy when the result was announced!

I'm not sure Nanai needs to be a good kicker with his skills, although I'm sure he's pretty decent. Does anyone remember Heem ever kicking it? I can't, but then he was a force of nature and could always make the yards with ball in hand.

Nanai definitely needs to have a good boot on him for the Prem - I donít know if he has or not as i donít think iíve seen him kick all that often, which is fine for a winger (which is why Heem basically never did) but heíll need to use it at FB.
