Kerr for Sale

More transfer news: Edinburgh prop and ex-Borders and Leeds man Gavin Kerr has signed for Sale Sharks on a two year deal, to bring some much needed experience to a Sale team shipping players and coaches left right and centre. There is still no news on Dan Parks’ contract.

This weekend sees Edinburgh take on the Ospreys and Glasgow take on full strength Leinster – I can only hope both of these games are belters. With spots on the Lions replacements list, the likes of Mike Blair, Ross Ford, James Hook and Ryan Jones will be looking to throw in some good performances – the season’s not over yet. Meanwhile Glasgow’s overlooked talent like Thom Evans and John Barclay will be looking to show why they should be on the list too. Ruaridh Jackson again holds the 10 shirt (a selection in place before yesterday’s Dan Parks trouble), it’s great to see him getting a good run of games but with Leinster warming up for their potentialy titanic clash with Munster next weekend, this should be a step up in intensity for him. The Ospreys vs Edinburgh game is live on S4C while Glasgow are on Setanta (Ireland). Both games are 7.30pm kick offs, give or take.

Meanwhile the Lions debate rolls on throughout the blogosphere and beyond, I recommend the BBC 606 boards for a laugh. However it seems to be a sign that Geech and co may be going in the right direction that very few selections are being questioned. The main ones receiving attention seem to be Alan Quinlan over Tom Croft, and Harry Ellis over just about anyone. Good to see some Blair and Cusiter fans out there. Folk still have their doubts about ROG’s defence, flair in the half backs and midfield, but with Hooky distinctly not setting the leeks on fire (they probably have heather in Wales too I suppose) and Henson injured, who else do you take? Flood? Cipriani? Phil Godman? Regarding most of the rest of the squad everyone has pretty much said, hmm okay, let’s get on with it. It was good to see Fitzy supporting Ross Ford in the press too.

Enjoy your weekend!
