Doesn't float my boat, should pull out all the stops and get a top union hooker to replace Powell at the end of the season.

Imagine the money the club could make from printing Louis van der Westhuizen's name on the back of shirts :D

That shirt would have to be as big as the 18 shirt to get that name printed on it

Doubt it.
These are two reasons not to trust people.
1. We don't know them.
2. We do know them.

Could always prize Josh Ganson away from being a ref, if we are looking to sign another famous name and it reinforces our traditional love affair with ex players 😉.

Why?

Did George Burgess put bums on seats
Has French or Field put bums on seats.
Did Andy Powell?

None of those have/had the same profile/reputation as Owen Farrell, plus he is a local lad who has reached the top in Rugby Union. He may have that desire to play for his home town club, time will tell but I certainly wouldn't rule it out.

I can honestly say, George Burgess was one of the overseas signings we've made in a lifetime, where i genuinely believed we signed a 'world class player'. French and Field were unknown especially in SL and I actually thought Andy Powell tried so hard (Huddersfield 2013 playoffs stands out), but was too old and inexperienced to move over to RL. I felt rather sad over Burgess rather than angry or frustrated. I've made my options clear on Owen Farrell, prove me wrong and il crack the champagne open. My opinion is, he's never going to be Andy or Liam and that's different generations!
