No surprise, I suppose, given our circumstances, that his rumoured move to Leeds may be off.
That's easy for you to say.

Dave is a pretty good flanker as well, at least he was while at Pirates.

Mal, you may not have noticed, but the Knights of the Roundy Tables were bestowed with those colours some seasons ago. They currently hang on the KORT Wall of Honour at the far end of the concourse. I'm surprised Sir Cumference didn't tell you.

Quins announce Brett Herron from Jersey Reds - and I think we could say exactly the same about Brett as PP has said about his departing player...Clap
Quins also signing another former Jersey player:

Great signing for Donny, recruitment has been easy for them over the past 2 years with the struggles of Rotherham and Leeds this year! Don’t think Burrows was given a fair crack at Falcons
Run with it

Indeed, this is very encouraging after a fairly tumultuous off season. I think the appointment of the right head coach for next season will also be key.

Cameron Cowell signs to the Knights for 2019/20 season. Has been on loan to us from Newcastle - lightning speed and can turn on a six pence

I was sad to see them go, happy that they are doing well and Andy seems to be avoiding injuries. I think he spent quite a bit of time on the sideline because of injuries at Castle Park - but was always exciting to watch when he was fit and able to play.

Kimbo was ecstatic.

Andy was superb in the last home game (MoM in my book). Haven't seen much of Junior lately due to his army commitments, but tbh, both have benefitted from the absence of others through injuries, and have taken the opportunity very well indeed.

I guess Kimbo is - I certainly am too. Both ahve worked hjard and performed well over the season. There have been very few matches without one or both of them featuring.
