tom franklin



  • a signing of tom franklin coming back home to the bay, a highlanders and nz maori player



  • That's a good get. I will be even happier if we can grab a first five-eighth!



  • That's a very handy acquisition although we have to wonder, given his closeness to All Black selection, whether he will get much game time with us. As usual not much news from the press and BOPRU about the contracted squad...not that contracts mean that much these days. Bardoul was released last year for instance to play in Japan. Plenty of unanswered questions though but club rugby will tell us more

    Inside back selection will be interesting this year. I hear Hollinshead possibly going to play for the Sunwolves and Haimona getting a bit long in the tooth so who knows what will happen.

    Anyway, its way to early to be mentioning such stuff. Can't wait for tomorrows cricket.
