Johannes Jonker, tight head prop and apparently also obscure Harry Potter character (according to google) is joining Ealing. Another South African into the squad. I hadn't seen this announced previously, but it was in Ealing's newletter that came out today.

Building quite an overseas contingent there gerg - and Jonker is a big unit with experience at a very high level nice signing. You have a decent pack already, just making it better I guess Smile

By the looks of things the EQP thing, for what the payment is worth, may not be factored in this year for you guys. 
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

Some great lock-down haircuts or dodgy fashionable haircuts in there but I hope to see these lads on a pitch sooner or later. Particularly good to see Kuki in there. Stay safe lads.

He’s 6’8” and with Carrick-Smith at 6’11” and 129kg also, we should have some power for the props.

The group looks a mixture and takes us up to 30 players now.

Good player. We had him at Moseley for a while. He is in the army.

bit surprised by this move, although it's undoubtedly a good one for Bedford. He's that rare thing, a genuine undiscovered diamond who hadn't played rugby until he was in the army. not sure who spotted him and got him to Mose, but we went through a period a couple of years back of having a lot of soldiers because they were cheap... we had 2-3 seasons out him anyway (can't remember which, probably 2) 

Then he became that even rarer thing, the player in their late 20s who gets picked up from National 1 in a bidding war between two premiership clubs. 

The surprise comes really that he's being farmed out, which looks uncomfortably like Saints bought him to hoover up talent rather than through any need, and he's most recently been getting regular first team games on loan to Glasgow Warriors.

not sad that he left Mose, as he's clearly too good for National 1*, but I think he's also too good for the Championship frankly. There's a lot of youth in that selection Saints are sending to Bedford, then there's the 28 year old 'misfit' who's only in his second season of pro rugby.

The army link is a bit of an issue, though probably less so this year - it means he gets pulled away for inter-services stuff. 

Absolute solid legend though.


*and mrs b_e was a big fan of him...

Bobbie Beattie signs for Ealing from Scottish. Apparently we need all the players.

Sounds like Scottish minimising their outgoings - players not required until next season.

Bedford sign prop Corrie Barrett from Munster to replace Alex Penny who is retiring from rugby due to work opportunities outside of rugby (who can blame him). Penny is a big loss for the new season and would’ve been our first choice tighthead
