    This will be a nice addition of some good young talent. But I'm still waiting for the gun #12 to round out the backline!

    He is a good young player, different style of opensde to Pocock but still a good signing.

    Of course, there's the usual caveat when dealing with any media report - once he signs on the dotted line!

    Its the Super Rugby off season so the team song won't be getting sung

    Except in Qld where it is belted out over PA speakers like old style Soviet propaganda

    Would be a great signing, but we have to question the need for another back rower. That is the one area we DO have depth..........

    loose forwards have a very high injury rate-need plenty of cover

    I think we either need to look at NZ and try and get someone young and inexperienced, but with great potential. Or possibly look further afield to Europe?

    True Gunny, but hate to limit Angus and Lachy's game time. They could both be future Wallabies.

    I didnt register Alcock in the past season, probably because I was too busy assuming the Tahs were about to lose to actually watch their looseys run the paddock!

    is he a good worker?

    Ex South African used to be with the Sharks, not going to want to go back east as quick as the rest.

    Good hard working player, throws his all into it, similar mould to Matt Hodgson.

    Good start if it comes off, we want players who give the all for the team, this is after all a team sport.

    Hilarious! haha

    I rate Alcock. He's a good ball carrier. Still would have prefferred to develop Cottrell and mcCaffrey but I suspect Cottrell is a possible runner back to Queensland if things start working for him and given the oppurtunity. The Reds team song is that good!
