slightly unusually, no movement from Mose on getting that announced - but yes, apparently (not doubting for a minute Cov's own website announcement!). Very pleased about that piece of business.

We've had football, now we have boxing.
OK, for the sake of argument, I would agree if you would also agree that in RU it is very very rare.

Budgets talk. Normally the bigger budgets finish at/near the top whilst those that don't have them tend to struggle.

It is a 30 game season, depth of squads has a big bearing - another factor of a bigger budget

Over a season of course the richer clubs will win. Doesn’t prevent the odd slip up though.

Odd to learn of our signings on here. 
We can always use a spare hooker - though competition is tough.
Please do not quote that our of context.

Ooh Arr. Good signing that.
Roach is a good lad too. Hopefully Mose will be nearer the right end of the table next term.

Raider999,

Agreed. Not sure why some remain in denial?

Joe Tarrant has left Blackheath - unfortunately they could not afford to keep him. He has informed them he is going to an East Midlands club "on mega bucks" - is that to Ampthill then?

However, Lach has confirmed 15 new signings, four of those having already featured for the club last term.

Forwards Cam Holenstein and Adam Batt who both arrived from Championship club Jersey in the second half of last season, have signed permanently for the 2019/20 campaign. They will be joined by former team-mate, ex-Wasps and Loughborough University centre George Eastwell who comes to College Meadow after three years in the Championship with the Islanders.

Two players who played in the club's Extra 1st XV after Christmas, St Mary’s Academy and ex-London Irish hooker Charlie Burman, and former Leicester and Jersey fly-half Oliver Bryant, who starred in the Kent Cup final victory over Sidcup at the beginning of May, have also penned permanent deals.

Lach has strengthened his front row options with the signings of three props - Luke Boon, who won two BUCS titles with Hartpury and was in their Championship squad last term, Cornish Pirates loosehead Tom Concu and Bath University and London Irish prop Austin Hay who can play on either side of the scrum.
Experienced hooker Jared Saunders joins from London Scottish having also made 23 appearances in the Premiership for Saracens.

Ex-Edinburgh, Ospreys, Rotherham Titans and Rovigo lock Perry Parker (pictured) arrives at the club having spent last season playing in France with Stade Dijonnais, while Lach has also recruited experienced back rowers Ed Milne from relegated Championship club Richmond, and New Zealander Leigh Thompson who played last season for Nuneaton in Midlands League One having previously had a successful career in New Zealand and Spain with North Shore and VRAC respectively.

The club continue to benefit from their strong links with Exeter University with the arrival of exciting full-back/winger Saladin Bell and Exeter Chiefs Academy fly-half Ted Landry, while Nottingham's Championship winger Alex Goble, a product of Eastbourne College and a former England Counties representative, completes the list of new signings.

“I always try to get as much of my business completed as early as possible in the summer so we know exactly where we are at going into pre-season,” said Lach, “and I’m delighted with the quality of the signings we have made, which is the right blend of youth and experience.

“Obviously we were disappointed to miss out on the Nat One title but to finish second in only our second season in National One was a tremendous achievement by everyone involved and undoubtedly exceeded all our expectations before the start of the campaign.

“We achieved this with the vast majority of the squad that got us out of National Two three seasons ago. This group have been together for a while now and they’ve been absolutely fantastic for us. But it’s a fact of rugby life at this level there there will be new arrivals and departures season on season as with every club, and the new players we have brought in will give us fresh impetus and inject new life into the squad ahead of what will be our toughest National One campaign yet.”

i dont think cambridge star play keifer laxton was "released" it is my understanding rotherham were desperate to get him and bought him out of contract early! cant wait to see him play at clifton lane. I understand he has championship experience. How did he do this season Camquin?

Nine games 6 starts - including at Rotherham.
Then got a knock and mainly played seconds for the latter part of the season.

OE's new loosehead prop Tom Concu played at Caldy for a couple of seasons. He pretty much destroyed every tighthead in National 2 North, he is a ferocious scrummager and usefui around the park as well. Pleased to see that they have also recruited a Kiwi who played for my old club in Auckland.

With that line up of new signings I think any concerns we all may have had about OE's stability after the demise of Secure Trading have been put to bed.
