Well he was never really here but he was unlikely to be happy with being 5th choice at his age.

I hope the Admiral has a few more voyages left in him.

Any chat where Busby and Owens are going? Had heard Nagle joining one of the Italian sides, linked with both. The Admiral being loosely linked with a Pro D2 move.

Nelson was a decent option, sad to see him go. Owens and Busby with the emergence of so many other back 3 options weren't going to progress unless they really flashed potential. Tbh happy enough Nagle is leaving, gives more opportunities to Rea and I guess we have Carter coming in too.

AFAIK, Nagle is off to Zebre.
