Sale who have already signed a dozen journeymen inc. Buckley, Tuitupou, Leava (and are letting just as many go) are apparently talking to Alix Popham.
 
They are also letting Kris Ormsby go who would be a potential solution to our lock problems but has major injury problems (played about 15 times in 3 years) and is talking to London Irish in any case.
 
Also, Dwayne is apparently talking to Lyon in France.... not surprised he wants to leave a sinking ship.
 
Oh yeah and Wasps have signed Ross Filipo (the All Black lock) from Bayonne.

No he's almost 32, plays mainly second row but can cover in back row.
 
More transfer gossip is that Stefon Armitage has been talking to Toulon despite being under contract... and Elvis Sevali may leave London Irish with the Dragons looking like a possible destination. The Drags are trying to bring in some Samoan/Tongan/Fijian bulk into the centre.

You would think there would be a finishing line for recruitment at star spangled Toulon, my word the cash guy is spreading the wealth..........
 
 
In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"

Knew about Peel and Lyon (see Peel thread below)  and not bothered about Ormsby. But if they let Leawaravu go then we should be straight in there.

All very well having all these class players at Toulon but half of them wont get a game! Armitage will be fighting with Smith and others for a wear of the 7 shirt.
