Samu would be a much better shout and Valenti better still but I'm keeping expectations as low as possible.

SO 2 folks have been bandied about re: Marcel's replacement. Fez mentioned Bill Mata in dispatches, while another is a Brumbie backrower with decent pedigree. anyone heard anything, or will we just get another Campbell Feather for our sins.
I'd have Campbell Feather over Xavier Rush any day.

Really hoped he’d come good! Must be hard with no continuity in one position.

Sadly be criminal keeping him with such an exciting academy constantly rolling out! Would this be the reason Moxham seems to be getting exposure?

Not really surprising with the amount of good young outside backs coming through. If Faddes leaves and Ludik retires we will still have Stockdale, Balacoune, Lyttle, Gilroy, Addison, Lowry and McIlroy (who am I assuming is getting a senior deal). Sexton and Rankin in Academy as well.

Is the new backrow going to be the only NIQ signing we make KOTH? Doubt we will replace Carter in these times and think another year of Alby (if he wants to stay) will help Doak and Finlay.

I would imagine trying to recruit a NIQ from outside of Europe must be pretty challenging these days given the Covid19 situation. Will depend on the player’s circumstances but heading from Oz or NZ to Europe right now would not be an appealing prospect, given both case numbers and restrictions. For players who have a partner or family, even less so.

The state of the academy for backs is frightening ,the amount of golden boys coming through is second to none. Addison and Gilroy are the ‘elders’ and they were only born in 1992, not even 30 yet. They should be in their prime but just can’t seem to stay injury free.

Don’t know about the NIQs, terrible year to be a professional rugby player negotiating contracts. All three of them have contracts up and I just don’t see ulster or any other club offering big contracts.

Marcell is the big one to replace obviously but consider this. Will Hendy get a central contract? Will the Marcell money be used to offer him something if he doesn’t.

Really can’t see him not being offered one? Think issue be the value of that contract! As Sean O’Brien said last week, Hendy is key to Ireland playing well.

Could Gilroy be in bother though, he’s a shadow of his former self and with so much talent appearing he’ll be struggling for game time.

Lets not forget that faddes is further from home than marcell and can't be over eager playing in empty stadiums while his mates back home are enjoying a normal life. I suspect he won't be too disappointed not to be offered an extension anyway.
