It may be that Baldwin will be the only departure and we could have 6 or 7 centres next season depending on the number of arrivals!!!


  Fonotia not have is contract renewed as I understand it .

Shame for him and us but it hasn’t worked out with him and injuries meant we missed him for a lot of the time and his form was also not consistent. Time for a change.

Yes fonotia has been plagued by injuries and form has been so so.  He’s 32 so time to offload. Wish him well

Parkes deal not done and dusted according to BBC. Quoting Pivac they say he has a ‘big decision’ to make.

This is no slight on Hadleigh at all, I love the guy, he's been superb for us and we've been superb for him. However, given the time he will spend with Wales and his age, if we can bring in Jonny Williams and Tyler Morgan and with Osian Knott coming through I'd say a very fond farewell. My only caveat to this is if Foxy fails to recover, we could do with keeping him for his big game experience. I've heard however that Foxy is expecting to be 100% fit for the start of next season (whenever that may be). Others on here seem to suspect differently but who knows.

I don't think so, knee surgery has come on so much in the last few years, and key thing now is that with the virus he won't be forced back early.

Foxy will be busting a gut to be on the plane to South Africa in June 2021.

foxey will have time to recover, but will he have the specialist recovery program that he would have with the scarlets/wales? injuries like that require a lot of physio and strength training to get the leg and knee to be back in a good enough state.
I am sure they will have given him a program to go through. but he will not have the specialists around him assisting in the recovery

Foxy will be back I'm sure. We need depth at centre though as someone like Foxy may have to be managed specially. He's world class and we do need him, but I see him playing big games and maybe a few against weaker sides, and in the derbies. Maybe in not all the derbies around Christmas given the short turn around. We need centres and they all will get plenty of game time I'm sure.

Could do a lot worse than Alex Dunbar, recently released by Brive.

Dunbar is 30 plus if we’d sign him and he performed well , then he could be recalled by the Scottish selectors. This defeats the object. He is probably very good but I wouldn’t sign him
