Go to Toulouse you arsehole - keep them away from McAlister.
Very good signing for Edinburgh... Although how will Larkham deal with the weather changes...
Coming from Canberra he'll be used to the cold.
Ah Glad to hear it...
Hmm, not so cast iron sure about whether he's going to stay or go?
P.s if this doesn't pull in punters to Edinburgh I have no idea what will other than getting Strathclyde Police to abduct 60,000 random people every weekend for three hours.
Dunno why Strathclyde police would be involved, I don't want no weegies!
Great signing for us. Exactly what we need and it gives us the option of playing Godman or Southwell at 13...both better than Di Rollo. Says alot of the intentions of Howells and the Curruthers brothers, and more signings like this won't go a miss. We need centres, and a experienced prop to play along Smith and to push Chunk alot more. Perhaps the signing of Larkham will bring other big names to Embra.
It's actually not that cold in Edinburgh between May and September either. Just rains alot.
with some of the talent they have in the backs and they way they like the play, they could be a real force next year, especially with the array of passes this guy will bring to the side.
No doubt there is talent there, but the side will be rather inexperienced next year with us losing so many players. I'm confident though, that because we won't have as many internationalists leaving us and hopefully injuries will be kinder to us, that next year will see us put a consistant challenge for the title. Not just one that dies away around Februrary because half our squad has gone off on international duty.
Woop woop more defences for Larkham to carve. Can't wait to see how he gets on!
he will leave a massive hole for brumbies...
True, but he has to leave sometime. It will just give a younger players more of a chance and enable development for the years to come.
once in a generation player player is our larkham
notbad at all
good on the scots catching gud ole larkham. they need as much help as possible from the looks of it
larkham is probly the best 5/8 ever. he doesnt have the goal kicking ability of the rest of the greats but his ability to put a man through a gap is second to none. He also has an icnredible ability of breakin the line everyime he decides to run and for a skinny guy, hes an outstanding defender
What sort of standard is Scottish rugby these days? Anyone else of note in the team?
wheres simon taylor going
Chris Patterson, the best fly half Scotland never had (because everyone keeps playing him at every position but fly half), Mike Blair and someone else whos name escapes me. Sadly though, allot of Edinburgh and Scotland players have moved out of Scotland, signing with Welsh & Irish Magners League teams, English teams and French teams.
Blair, Larkham, Paterson, De Luca, Cairns& Webster, that sone dangerous backline
Very dangerous but their pack is a bit lightweight it has let them down in the past when playing notoriously physical teams like Munster or Ulster.
