  3. Fox, Sharky and David Smith are about the only ones I might have liked to see retained. The others are all either past it, injured too often or simply not good enough in the first place.

    I really can't understand releasing David Smith. as Webby said though it's only those 3 who were worth retaining.

    The rest are meh.
     
  5. I read that Short has signed with Brive while Damien Browne rejected a new contract in favour of a move to an unnamed French club.

    Has Foden been signed to play scrumhalf or fullback?

    Scrum-half so I've heard.

    Interesting wont Northampton have plenty of scrum half's?
     
  8. Well we've released all 3 of our senior scrum halves from this season and brought 3 in. So no, we should have just a nice number. Foden should be first choice, with Dickinson and Dickens battling in behind him. Also got a young talent in John Brake who has spent the season gaining experience with England Sevens, and doing a pretty decent job by the sound of things.
