Still look a bit weak at lock.
Especially if Ewels gets more and more time with England.

Agreed - apparently Bath were one of 3-4 clubs looking for locks, but not finding any.
I'd guess that SA is the usual lock-shop, and their all champing at the bit to knock the Lions about. May be some room for signings post-tour.

If not, then Richards is ready to step up, Williams is... okay at lock, and Bayliss and Ellis can do a job in an emergency, so we've got cover.

The whole thing just looks unbalanced towards the back 5 though - I expected Roko and Atkins to be gone; but I guess everyone just signed 2-year deals last summer, so only those who want to move, are moving.

Scots trying to pinch Bayliss now
Again?
They successfully pinched him during the 6N - they just injured him before he was capped.
TBF, he's always known he was Scottish, and was raised with pride in that heritage.

Out of date within a week.
Given that I can't edit the above, I'll just note that we also now have Richard De Carpentier in the back 5 of the scrum. Most likely as a flanker.

I'll do a new graphic if we get a more major signing, or too many new ones - we're still expecting, or looking for a hooker and a lock; possibly also a scrum half with Spencer's injury
