You can't. You're in the hands of the moderators - and given the lack of it (even though it's been requested in the past) in NL1 for the last two years - good luck.

I've seen Michael Heaney play for Donny and always thought he would make the step up. Obviously alan solomons and  worcester scrum coach mefin Davies have had an eye on Isaac and are obviously looking to develop another youngster along the the lines of Jack Singleton.
Good luck to both of them

Good luck to the lad. It was posted on Jersey's Twitter account so no secret in the move.  I am personally delighted to see players getting a chance to step up a level but its a bit sad to hear of players moving to other clubs at the same level.

Scarlets have got a proven talent in Varndell so good luck to him. Harry Randall is a phenomenal talent imo but I just hope he actually gets game time at Bristol who may run the risk of collecting too large a squad of talented players so that they never build a settled match team. Players often improve with a consistent run of games in a settled side and whilst there will always be a need to cover injuries in a squad too many quality players in a squad can lead to over frequent and unsettling team changes. I suppose they could always lend him back to Hartpury or even Jersey?

Given the only other senior scrum half we have on the books next season is Stirzaker, I would say he's in with a good chance. Especially as Uren, who just signed a contact, had to be subbed after 30 minutes playing against your side (Jersey) as he was unfortunately quite bad and his actions directly resulted in two tries as I've been led to believe.

IMO Uren is as much of an exciting talent as Randall or indeed Cochrane who is another fine scrum half at Hartpury and if Bristol are collecting a batch of these young stars I sincerely hope they have a sensible development plan. These lads need to play rugby and will be put under pressure particularly when playing in a side which doesn't give proper attention to guarding the fringe of breakdowns. If young talent is cast aside or put down the order after a minor set-back imo Bristol would be better off recruiting 30 year old experienced players who hit the ground running. The Bristol website still shows Ryan Glynn on their books and he has loads of experience and a great pass if they want a safety first choice.

No reasons given.  McMillan has been injured for a while and has had problems in the past so that may be an issue.  Tuohy?  Was injured for quite some time amd I think currently has a shoulder problem but good enough to be loaned out to Leicester recently.

Tuohy had an arm injury at the end of last season and a hamstring at the start of this and came back from Leicester when he got injured. He is a good player when fit.

We have had lots of young talent develop this season (and before) so I'm 100% sure there's a sensible plan.



As you can see Glynn isn't in our squad for next season, Cullen is basically in the academy right now (as he was brought in late from Scotland he's not officially an academy player despite being pretty much that at present), which leaves us quote light in that crucial position. Seems like Randall didn't come to pass or may be due later anyway so it's pretty moot.

Still think Bristol need some top talent akin to Morahan to compete properly, otherwise we will be straight back down.

How many starts will the championship contingent signed by Bristol (inc Eden) get between them in the prem next year? 8 players and counting. My guess is under 10. Perkins hasnโ€™t had a game this season since signing from us. Nick Fenton-Wells criminally under used. There are success stories but Bristol also do hamper careers of promising championship players sometimes.

Regarding NFW he played when fit in the prem last year and has been retraining as a hooker this season and as such hasn't started which I don't think is too unreasonable? I'd certainly expect both tightheads will be battling to support Afoa. Lindsey will get games. The backs are more of a question but we have only Morahan and Leiua from this season's wingers contracted for next season.

Some cracking players there mate particularly in the back row and 10-15. I certainly wouldn't look to boost the playing talent in the backs by recruiting another star like Morahan but look for two more quality locks and an experienced scrum half - if you can acquire Sam Lockwood from Falcons (a ball carrier at prop who tackles) it would be a bonus. In the prem if you win first phase ball that back row and three quarter line should make Bristol achieve mid table - I hope it happens.

NFW is very much not underused and when not injured had featured heavily both in the premiership and this season in the championship. He has recently transitioned into a hooker rather than flanker after injury and is doing well but obviously will be a substitution due to this rather than a starter over Harris-Wright, an established hooker. We love Fents at Bris and he's a key member of our squad so like the rest of your post, I disagree entirely and respectfully think you're talking out of where the sun doesn't shine.

Fully agree CPK a brilliant start. Conventional wisdom points to a sustainable squad of about 34 to enable a club to cover injuries and its interesting to see where the recruitment gaps are. Probably miles from the mark but initially it appears to be light of 2 Props, 1 Hooker, 1 Lock, 2 Back Row, 1 Scrum Half & 3 wing/full backs. Hopefully a few more of the present squad still to be confirmed. Huge pity about Ross Adair on his day he was absolute quality imo.

I would suggest that we probably need 1 or 2 more Centres as well CC, unless any of the wings/full backs (that we don't actually have signed up yet) can also play as centre (much in the same way as Scott VB did this season).

You are probably right Brizzer although a true second five eighth like Lewis Robling who could also cover fly half and kick a goal or two is probably beyond the recruitment budget. Many of the players are adaptable enough to play out of their best position but I still hope that the budget will stretch to a few more of the present squad - Oor Uili must surely have another season or two in him.

Ben Mosses and Tyas* two quality signings. Both been consistent performers and although our on field results haven't shown it, are some of the best players IMO at level 2.
Both full/time aswell. Handshake

Should be a role

Wow. He was a great servant and I am sure we would be happy to see him come back in any role. I am just surprised since we have only just appointed Neil Fowkes as coach for next year. I guess Nick could be forwards coach?

Very pleased, TCD has been immense for us when he's actually played.

A real gem who can play 2R or 6 and is displaying the form of his life this year particularly carrying the ball forward in the loose. He played against Tiggers in a pre-season game in August 2013 when he was very young and has been virtually the first name on the team sheet for Jersey when fit this year. There is a string of Jersey old boys playing in the premiership like Lockwood & Graham at Falcons and Williams at Chiefs and there is no reason at all why James can't do just as well for Tiggers.  A huge loss for Jersey ahead of the big match with Donny on Friday but I for one wish him well.

Nick Kennedy was at the Ealing Notts game and spent most of the time looking at the Notts team.

I guess they were impressed by the number of times he missed touch on Saturday.

Very good prop and should go well there. Best of luck.

To be fair, he is very quick and shifty. He usually is fast on the offload, and can open up the middle of the field - at least that is what I saw from him in the Nottingham and Connaught games. He is very small though, and his box kicking seems below average.
