He didn't. He couldn't make the Bristol side so was farmed out to Moseley on loan. His contract is up now and won't be renewed


pants, know he played most of their B & I games last games so was working off that

Bristol had a fairly strong/experienced back 3 corps but feel bad for the guy as I dont think he got a fair crack of the whip here, not to dredge up old arguments

At least he has an ex Irish international wing (Maggs) as coach at Mosely
When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.

That's the 3rd time of asking for them after play-off defeats by L Welsh and Worcester but owners have deep pockets and Andy Robinson has been around the block as a top-level coach. They could become another Gloucester or Exeter and suddenly West Country rugby, adding Bath to the mix, is beginning to look like its historic strength as the centre of English rugby power.

Wasps qua Coventry, Leicester and Saints only need the resurrection of Moseley and the top-level map of English rugby will look like it did in the 60's, 70's and 80s


I thought Jack did well in the loose but he seemed to get schooled in the scrums, certainly gave away two penalties while I was watching. I thought it was a huge loss when he left but with McGrath, Dooley, Healy and Byrne I think we wouldn't have been able to give him game time. He'd be perfect type of player for Connacht.

You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

No harm having a few lads abroad getting experienced. And very few on that list that you would be weeping bitter tears in anguish about.

if true (from Woods) then Ealing are throwing serious money around

minor quibble but some inclusions in the list are BS: George McGuigan is England capped, McGinty is obviously USA capped, Scholes but especially Allen have expressed their intention to declare for Scotland

cant find original article but one of the English papers had a piece on how Championship clubs are moving away from their own academies and just picking up guys from Premiership underage systems

They may want to play for Scotland but Scotland would scarcely be interested?
