I wonder where Danny will go?

Perhaps abroad, as he won't be in Eddie's future plans, being unable to hoof the ball far enough!

Cipriani will go to America I think, they're trying to really push the game over there (and it's working with far more players going in rugby at school age) and he's the sort of player you'd give a fortune to to make the game 'sexy'.

I guess this clears things up a bit - https://www.rugbypass.com/news/gloucester-explain-why-cipriani-was-allowed-to-quit-kingsholm-skivington/

Reading between the lines I'd guess Hastings was already lined up and Cips was on his way in the summer so they've had a chat and agreed to let him go early which is why everything was announced at once.

Wasps vs montpellier on BT2, wasps just got a 3rd try to go 19-14 ahead and it's a stunner, exceptional offload in midfield to slice them open.

Great day of rugby, Leinster V Northampton was a good game with some fantastic tries coming from nowhere. That served as an appetiser for an absolute belter of a game in Gloucester V Ulster. Yellow cards, bonus points all round, penalty tries and a match winning score in the 85th minute. Games this these 2 are what makes the sport so good to watch.

I finished watching the Gloucester match this morning. Great game, but wouldn't have been so nail-biting if Zammo was more willing to pass

With the amount of 28-0s in the last round of the european games I can't say that surprises me much.

Crazy finish to the Glos Sale game.
Harris goes off for a HIA but no TMO review of the tackle. A Sale scrum penalty when the Glos pack was mullering them and dropping it. Then the Sale coach/water carrier hackles the ball over the hoardings to stop a quick, late line out, and from the ensuing melee (involving a Marlon Yarde head butt) Sale get the penalty to win the match.

Bizarre.

Willi Heinz has signed for Worcester for next season.

Follows on from them signing Will Chudley earlier in the month.

Not exactly long term options at scrum half.

Do Worcester have a star young 9 waiting ?

Will Chudley has a few years in him and was a very good signing, not sure I see the point of adding Heinz.

The only players I've heard of coming through at Worcester are a 10 and 12 (Fin Smith who looks an excellent fly-half and Seb Atkinson).

Think its more plugging a gap with Houggard I presume off, perhaps the other way of Heinz??
