Player Transfers/roster update index thread



Hi guys.

I thought as the rosters for both the games are outdated it would be a good idea to make a thread that can index the latest club and national team rosters/transfers for rugby '06 and rugby '08.

This is purely a reference for roster modders like myself, ozzy and anyone else where we can share and update the rosters accurately.

I think it'd be a good idea to add player transfers to this thread. Anyone who has anything to add please, don't hesitate. Thanks for your help :)
Are you talking about '07 teams or where they would be in '08 based off what we know now?
It's a very good idea as in the last 24 hours Chris Paterson has moved to Gloucester , Daryl Gibson & Lome Fa'atau are going to Glasgow and Nick Evans has signed for Auckland ....
Daryl Gibson still playing wow i would have thought he retired by now.

yeah is this for the upcoming season or the current season?
I think the new rugby '08 has last seasons rosters (2006-07) which will obviously be out of date by the start of the season. It has Saints, so it can't be for the 07-08 season.

No NH roster update has been made as far as i'm aware, so i'm doing one, and it makes sense to make it as new as possible.

I am editing rugby '06 only, but the idea is that we can keep a track of all the players movements/transfers, so that it's easy to updates rosters as we go. I will make a full definitive listing as i go.. i didnt know Lome and Gibson have gone to Glasgow.. so that's an update already.

I will release my first 2007-08 roster patch very soon and it will include all these updates.

I'm not sure if the new editor being made will be able to load '06 roster files, but if anything it will give a defintive list of the club and national team rosters ready for the new season.

I am intending to make 07-08 guinness premiership kits too, they are nearly all out now so i can start on that.. hopefully they will work from '06 into '08 or vice versa.
the news about Lome and Gibson was on the BBC's website if you're interested
There is a huge amount of transfers going on right now.. most of them seem to be going to Toulon, who will look like they will be France's first Super 14's team next season lol..

Thanks mate. There was a site i went on that indexed the moves for SA, NZ and Australians but it got a bit confusing to read.

Thanks Darhf.

What i am doing is editing out all the retired players and such (like Tana Umaga, Yannick Bru, Matt Dawson etc) and replacing them with the new players like James Haskell, Lionel Beauxis etc.

At the moment i have some nearly finished squads that are as up to date as possible.

Stade Francais for example have their 07-08 squad on their site now, as do Newcastle Falcons. Other teams like Gloucester and Glasgow have made lots of signings.

This is what i am updating. I'm taking out all the old and replacing it with the new.. including signings that are happening now.

i.e. Chris Paterson is now in Gloucester and Daryl Gibson is now in Glasgow on my roster update.

With Stade, the only players i am not aware of are..

D.Weber and F.Montanella.

Can you help me here Darhf?

Can you tell what positions Donguy, Basualdo and Montes will play? I assume one or two of them are fly-half (#10)

If Only. We lost two fly-halves this season and still found none.

They should go for Du Toit as primary fly-half and Courrent as replacement.

Yves Donguy : Wing

Basualdo : Hooker

Montes : Prop

For Paris:

G.Bousses, Centre
-> Bourgoin
(never played at paris)

A.Burban, Flanker, 8

D.Drozdz: SR

C.Milton (?)
<- Blue Bulls

J.Saubade : Wing

G.Messina : Centre

D.Weber : Prop

F.Montanella : Prop


Do you know google documents/ spreadsheets ?
You can create a spreadsheet and make it public. Anybody can then make modifications.

This or a wiki would help make the process of player identification and transfers.
I have fully updated 2007 'going into' 2008 squads for Biarritz, Stade Francais, Toulouse and Clermont but still am having trouble finding updates for Perpignan and Castres. I have all the new signings so far, but there are a lot of departures and players that aren't in the other french teams on 06 and i am trying to figure out who to replace and who not to.

PM me Darhf and i will email you the roster file if you like. Btw, do you know what team Seti Kiole (tongan RWC 07 winger) is playing for now?
wow guys this is coming along great...

is an updated roster going to be made available at some stage?
