JAMES POOPER WARNING:
Apparently John Bateman from raiders has asked for multiple releases but has been denied as his contract ends after 2021. I know we have quite a few good looking second rowers but if anything changes from now to then he would be a classy signing.
Most likely BS though
Might be wrong about this but can’t recall us having any joy out of any RU players we/ve signed over the years. Last one I recall was a Sevens guy we signed a few seasons back, played a few reserve grade games without any real distinction then went back to Rugby and represented Australia in international Rugby Sevens. Quade might be good for a short term deal but he’s no spring chicken any more.
John Grant was spectacular for us.
