I can see a club player brought in to cover wing.

He's also got his TV career to worry about, comes with bonus of Vogue Williams in a bikini.

Stockdale gets his contract upgraded mid contract

Payne says nothing has fixed head problem (enough) so is going to try a few months rest, prognosis doesnt seem good from my reading of it

I had heard it is one of those things that will vanish as quickly as it appeared, the time frame is the problem, it could be next week or could be a few years.

Jonno is OK, Peel is not up to much though, still a trainee.
Things are real bad at present, it is even rumoured Bowe is playing on the wing this week again even after last week's non appearance

Not tinnitus, I heard the term for it but forget, brings on a serious migraine after a bit of hard exercise, sometimes it has been going away then reappears bad as ever.

Just out of interest and with no mention of the case in hand up here what do you lads as outsiders think should happen if the two guys are deemed not guilty, return to play with a good boot up the jacksie or get kicked into touch for bringing club bad press. No mention of proceedings just a brief stay or go and brief rationale for your thinking.

Making no comment on the Ulster case a couple of years ago Glasgow had a couple of players up in court for assault after they got into a fight with some amateur players in a take away.
Can't remember off the top of my head or not if they were found guilty but they were suspended pending trial (I think) but also suspended for a few months afterwards. Did a lot of community work etc. One is now club captain.

As an outsider and making no comment on guilt or otherwise there's defo evidence of unsavoury behavior (thinking of the what's app msgs etc.) which shouldn't go unsanctioned imo.
