GIGOT

Post by bane73 » Sat Jul 13, 2019 12:44 pm

Hasn't signed a contract with the dragons. I doubt we could afford him at the moment, but, is he the type of player we should be targeting? I'd take him, even though he can be a bit of a git.
what doesn't kill me simply makes me...stranger.

I think he would be good but doubt there is a chance. Heard he may be union bound.

Probably mean we will end up with Rankin.

Would love Gigot though. He is the exact type of fullback we need

Tbf I think Rankin is starting to hit his stride in recent weeks. I said from day one that we were making a mistake by playing him in the halves. To me the backline should go Rankin 1, Eden 2 (hopefully he'll find his form again), Mata'utia 3, Blair 4, Clare 5, Trueman 6 and Aston 7. I think that would stand a good chance against most teams

Minikin is actually just starting to come into some form and that right wing partnership starting to bear some fruit.

I'd play him in front of Blair that's for sure.

Yeah but isn't Minikin going? Personally I'd try find some form with the players we are planning to keep. Also I'm still not keen on Minikin anyway. Most of the tries down our right have come through the halves and fullbacks linking up, not through Minikin. In fact a lot have been scored after they cut Minikin out and threw it wide to Clare

Yeh if Minikin is going then no way we play Minikin over Blair when Shenton comes back. We need to get some game time under belts for next season.

Rankin
Feki
Blair
Shenton
Eden
Trueman
Gale

Watts
McShane
Smith
McMeekan
Jesse
Milner

Could be scarily good with a full pre season and 100% fit.

I'd play Foster over Jesse. I think we've missed him tbh

That's hopefully the good thing. Next season hopefully we may have some good back up players.

Olpherts to cover wings
Pete to cover 1, 3, 4, 6 and 7 if needed
Cook, Moors, Massey, Griffin, Millo?, Hepi to cover prop
Foster, Holmes, Hepi, Clarkson? To cover back row.

All them players are very good players to have as bench, back up.
