    Opinions on this signing? Despite injuries I think this is a good move for Biarritz. I also really like the Fabien Alexandre signing.

    Balshaw is a public danger at fullback. I hope he will play at wing, he has a good pace and a with his experience I think it's a good signing too. Alexandre is promising but he never was really convincing at Clermont and now he's far behind another youngster, Lapandry. Maybe Biarritz will do better with him.

    Alexandre should have playing time at Biarritz. They've been fairly weak at wing all season long, which is why I like the move.
     
  5. I think most of England will like the signing as it gets him out of the country.

    and teams won't be fearing Biarritz in the HEC either knowing there's the prospect of a Balshaw to help them out.

    Mate, the guy is a joke. Its an awful signing. Biarritz are spending a couple hundred thousand on a guy who passes the ball to/at the rugby posts and keeps thinking he's a flanker rather than a fullback.

    As Mite said, we like this move as it 1) gets Balshaw out of the bloody country and 2) sabotages a French team in time for next season's HEC campaign :lol:

    Have fun with Captain Calamity!!

    Well, this is Biarritz. All you got to do when you are a winger in Biarritz is catching the ball in the try scoring zone when Yachvili kick it straight into your hands. I guess he's hable to do that ?

    ... no ?
