Getting off LM for a bit and focusing on the bigger picture, we really do need a ‘win’ somewhere in terms of recruiting.
I love Madge, but it is well known Crowe and Richardson did most of Souths recruitment.
At this stage we have targeted
(All confirmed by the Pom, coach or ceo)
Updated list: we missed un Sami and Capewell also.
And have landed none so far officially…
Throw in DWZ last season and it is fair to say there is a developing trend. Throw in also our best player / recruit for 2018 wanted out.
We need to land one big fish, and hopefully others will follow. Madge has a rep as someone who flogs them and is strict, positive attributes in our eyes…but not always from a player’s perspective.
It is rare for a club to have a ton of cap space and not land anyone. The next week or two will say a lot about how player’s perceive us.
