Maybe in the meantime Steven Shingler could recommend a local amateur club who'd be happy to give him a game on a Saturday if he fancies a run out...?

KnightsBoy, hope it doesn't happen but in the event of a major catastrophic injury crisis do you suppose that Joe might put his playing boots on again? Bit like Paul Cooke did a few seasons back.

You never know, his age and fitness would be fine.  So it could happen.

Good lad. Always enjoyed chatting with him post match at Cambridge.
But that is true of most of the front row player.

That is true. Had the most interesting conversations with Ali Lyon when he was playing for Richmond. Pleasant and articulate.

Old Gold I expect not. On and off the field are different things. He certainly got the best of those loose heads, judging by the way the scrum moved when he was playing.

Sad to see him go but not unexpected am sure a number of the other guys will move on because of the financial situation

Thanks, Shush. 
Shocked at a couple of them but somehow not really surprised. Rugby Paper is touting Heffernan to Connacht as well.

Yes I read that, I'm sure he'd prefer to stay in England but needs must I suppose.

Just to confirm, Seb Cecil has joined Watsonians in Edinburgh. Seb was a 1st class player and will be a huge loss, I'm pleased for him but gutted for Nottingham. 

Marie, do you know of any Nottingham players that are staying/signed?
