Bombers carries and tackles count was through the roof and growing towards the end of the season!
Always there to take the ball if we were short of numbers - though he's usually the first man hitting previous the ruck if not, getting off the ground out the tackle to make 2 out of 3, closing runners down in midfield and never bossed at scrum time really from what I remember from the lottery of decisions?
With Tom Smith now also available to him the sky could be the limit for Bomber barring ill fortune.
I'm not sure we can claim to have produced Bomber but we certainly haven't hindered him across his two spells...
And I agree there's Willgriff John and Tomas Francis recently progressed forwards on the tightside and Tom Davies and Listy moved on on the loose side, the Hooker Yeandle too...
Perhaps the fact that front rowers need the strength that age brings means they're more likely to ply their trade at this level on the way through as its harder to burst from Academy level to top flight in these areas - Genge and Sinckler apart as current examples, though Genge played at Bristol too but at 20!

kenner: Just a Question if I may? Why after a season and on to the second can we not get an actual picture of Aaron Carpenter on the players site? Did not someone just take team photos?

Sir Spicious: I fear there are rumours that Aaron may, in fact, be a vampire and as such his image does not reflect in mirrors nor can it be captured in a photo. I should, however, warn you this may be fake news.

funches: How come there's only 3 games this weekend? Is it just scheduling or?

thomasmachin: It would appear that if we are to replace the departing players we had better be quick or all the available players will be signed by Ealing ,Coventry and Cornish Pirates!

barbelhunter: What a great re signing that is.

donnyknightsfan: that was absolutely dire today almost from start to finish apart from a spell in the 2nd half when we looked OK. players don't look motivated enough to me. they need a kick up the backside. the next two games v Bedford and Irish look a tough ask now.

rodders: A bit random this one but are any Knights fans travelling to the Jersey game on Friday 1st March flying from East Midlands on the 10.55 flight out. 2 of us are looking for a lift to East Midlands airport unexpectedly. Happy to share costs of travel

donnyknightsfan: after yesterday's showing a new attacking coach and structure is needed ASAP. our attack is really poor. why don't we ever look to create space?. you're not going to beat championship defences by just running straight at them.

thomasmachin: I would support any reasonable suggestion to support the Club
