No more NIQs anyway.

Useful player. Not a Jared Payne, but should be a good signing.

Agreed Charle was an unnecessary luxury who certainly did not show much commitment during his final 12 months. If the new signing shows even half the commitment of Jared then he will be alright.

That’s some outside backline options open to DMcF next season. That said there is an over reliance on SMcCL at 12, & both BB young ML both need to raise the bar at 10 next season, & a viable 3rd alternative at 9 needs to be developed. That said it’s NOW a DMcF squad, & the clear out has been efficient and fast. Exciting times ahead. I’m particularly expecting a fast league start on the basis very few of the squad will get WC call ups compared to other sides.

Dave its not just height -- he's about 10 kilos lighter than every other player in the academy -- 79 kilos about 12 1/2 stone .

Piatau was signed as a bright shiny thing to distract attention from the complete shitshow that was slowly but surely emerging in the background.

Payne was a very good player whose value to us was diminished by his involvement in the Irish set up (he was a project player) and Schmidt's insistence on him being played at centre as an organizer.

We already had one of those - name of Cave.

In the context of the CP signing what was the shitshow that was emerging that made us sign him as a distraction?
