    One confirmed signing has broken a barrier I've not seen before - Nick White. It's got a half page in our local rag print version - it's in the Perth Now stable so I'd guess it's in lots of the locals. Good stuff!

    I'd stick Amone into the priority list.
    and add marley to the important.
    and Rahboni somewhere on the desired list.
    and i like the look of Max so far...

    All of those original listings were supported by an official story at the time they were signed.

    If the situation has changed and you have something official please share it so when the time comes for the "official list" thread, it should be fairly accurate.

    Horton punches way above his weight. Love his attitude. He's an old-fashioned Junkyard Dog. Fights in the trenches. He can only improve with time and experience.

    The announcer on the ground on Friday said the Force are trying to resign him for next year. I don't know how accurate this is as he was supposed to be going to Claremont but gee, it would be so good to keep him. He has really seemed to have found a new lease of life at the Force and he seems to really be enjoying his rugby. All we can do is keep fingers crossed, you just never know . . .

    Agree, he plays 10 times his size.

    England winger Ollie Hassell-Collins has left the Exiles to join Leicester Tigers.

    Gives Harry Potter signing for the force speculation more substance

    Heath wasn’t a big guy but I’d quite happily have him back if he was still playing. It’s not the size of the dog it’s the size of the fight in the dog and it’s nous.

    I think he has the right attributes and instincts. Just a little too much inconsistency (& dumb shit) at the moment. Though I'm sure that will improve. Hopefully our top notch S&C coach can get him some more meat on him too.

    When Wells talked about the young blokes who start playing outside the processes when things aren't going well, he and Poolman were the first ones I thought of.

    True to a certain extent but Falou's size and strength is an advantage getting over the try line from the back of a rolling maul.
