There is a rugby video programme on YouTube confirming this.  Our new addition was being seriously lauded. I know that Leicester didn’t want him to go.  Let’s hope his concussion issues are totally resolved - I fear blades career is probably over

I like the look of him. Just the type of backrow we need to push others for starting places. Just praying he is over his injury.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

No there is no video programme on YouTube confirming it. It’s a complete rip off from a Rugby Paper exclusive which was reported a month ago. Blade’s career is not over

I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Seems a bit of a long term deal for a 32 year old who prior to lockdown was looking at 3 months out with concussion. Having said that the likes of Molitika and Nick Williams have done wonders for the Blues and Ospreys at the same stages of their career.

That will be a good signings if he’s expected to make a full recovery from his recent concussion.  He’s someone who can get over the gain line through his sheer size and strength and will allow us to play the weather conditions and opposition a bit better.  Having him and Cassiem available throughout the season (injuries permitting) would also be great.
I will look forward to seeing him performing next season, we will have some bulk in the forwards next season and by the time his contract runs out hopefully Carwyn will be ready to step up.
I believe that he could be a very shrewd Signing for the club, he’s the ball carrying n8 we’ve been waiting for since the days of Ben Morgan and David Lyons and it bides us time whilst Carwyn matures.

I never said the programme mentioned anything about blade - as I’ve previously commented, it’s looking that way.  I hope I’m wrong.

so kalamafoni looks like its going through, and with the other rumoured signings of johnny Williams and tyler morgan we have I think 3 good players coming in.
would think we may be looking at a tight head prop to come in too. and it depends on how foxey is recovering we may go for a nwq player in the centre.
interesting what will happened with blade, I hope he stays and is fit, but I cant see it with kalamafoni coming in too.

He’ll probably replace blade - I’d like to see joe Thomas come in as well. He’s got experience from the English premiership , so that’s a bonus for us.

If those 3 signings mentioned go ahead it will boost our test window side with 3 starters & give us ball carrying ability with Kalamafoni & Williams - so decent business I would say. A top quality tight head now and I, demanding bugger that I am, will be satisfied.

Neither did Gloucester, highly rated him.
