What's everyone's clubs upto?

Sale are playing:

Caldy (A) - Aug 19th
Connacht (A) - Aug 26th

Also from what I've heard had an unofficial game vs Doncaster Knights at the season ticket holders BBQ the other day (basically a live/joint training session but with a referee)

Looks like Chiefs have
Ulster (A) 02 Sept
Cornish Pirates (A) 02 Sept

Seems odd having 2 away games on at the same time on the same day though.

Sale 40 - 7 Caldy

Not sure you can really learn much from a game like that but Tom Curtis had a good day at the tee which is a positive - we need a consistent kicker while Ford is out

Oly, is that Ben Bamber the huge second row who was at Bristol...former league player?

Didnt know he had moved to you?
Whats your thoughts on him?

Came across at the same time as Alex Groves - was initially on trial but I'm guessing he's passed as he's now full time in our academy

Never seen him play so don't know anything about him tbh

How did Harper go? Such a shame he was injured last season as he looked excellent at the end of the 20/21 season.

No match report from this game, bar score updates, so not sure - sounds like the scrum in general went well so presumably had a strong game,
He spent the last few months in Australia playing every week so hopefully ready to hit the ground running this season - as you said: showed a ton of promise before his leg fell off

Not a million miles from what I expect our team at the start of the season to be, probably have Jean-Luc at lock, Jono Ross at 6 and Tom O'Flaherty on the wing
