  With the latest injury news on Jake, I feel we must look to bring in a like for like replacement in if there is a second row of that quality available either short term or for the  remainder of season .

Well the Irish always seem to find injury replacements on 3 month contracts from the Southern Hemisphere, why can't we?

we need some bulk and power up front and with jakes injury (which I fear could be longer than what is being said now).

He does seem to be becoming increasingly injury prone.can we really afford to keep carrying a large wage for a player we hardly see?

Gutted for Jake. We do need another powerful gain line lock on the books and have needed this for a long time now. Seems a real priority along with us needing a proper 8.

unfortunately jake has become an expensive luxury as he is either injured or with wales which means poor value for money.

Jake costs us far less as he's on a dual contract chaps.

Valuable player, having a run of injuries.

Also would be covered by insurance so a temporary replacement would not cost as  much as one thinks. Good idea if one could find one.
Be careful when you pick up the stick.........IT MAY BE THE WRONG END!!!!!!!!!!
