Only us and zebre in the pro12 that haven't announced any signings yet. Only rumours I've heard are eli walker and Tom prydie, which I wouldn't mind if we could also sign a good southern hemisphere back three player as walker and prydie are both injury prone.

Only rumours I have heard: 
Tom Prydie
Ross Morriarity - done deal (rumour)
Lucas Amorosino - rumour quashed by Pivac. 

How much substance there is to Prydie / Morriarity...no idea. 

Eli Walker is a finisher...the lad is injury prone, but would be worth investing in.

I have no idea if Aled Thomas will still be playing next season...if not, we need a 10. a signing similar to when we signed Olly Barkley would be ideal...a good player coming to the end of their career just to provide depth and experience for a year or 2. I dont think it will be long before we lose both Patch and Dan to the Welsh squad which leaves us bare/empty at 10.

If any southern hemisphere players are signing id hope we can get them before the end of this season so they're able to have a decent preseason. Ideally we should be talking to any players that Pivac might rate who didn't manage to get a super rugby contract this season.

I'd heard that one of the regions was interested in Aidon Davis who is a no.8 at Toulon. Hasn't played much this season, but was a regular at 8 for the King's in Super Rugby last season. Would be a tidy and not especially expensive signing. He's good over the ball too so would work well with our turnover game.

I can't see Moriarty coming for next season, season after possibly. Saying that now 1/2p looks like he's staying in France it will be interesting to see what the WRU plan to do with the funds set aside for him.

Oh not another Davis, and this one's probably not even Welsh Qualified. He's also down as being 100kg- not the big ball carrying 8 a lot of us were hoping for

Not much chance of any big signings I'd have thought.  Boyde and Elias will have commanded decent pay rises, and I know money's tight - if not as desperate as I was led to believe!

We'll probably sign another forward and another back, but relative unknowns. Our strength is how good we are in the international windows, I can't see us spending big on anyone who is likely to be away for those.

WRU won't be putting him at Scarlets if he signs an NDC
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Cheers for that...not sure why I actually thought they would. 
It's not as if we need a ball carrier. Shocked

What is the reason Moriarty will not be joining the Scarlets?
Be careful when you pick up the stick.........IT MAY BE THE WRONG END!!!!!!!!!!

My guess would the newly taken over East Wales Blues.

Francis and Roberts have both been linked to the Blues in the last 24 hours presumably on NDC.

Moriarty not coming to us.

Safe to say these NDC agreements are completely shafting us. The WRU clearly are prioritising the Ospreys and Blues, I hope our leadership are all over them like a rash.
