Edit: on a slightly cynical note timing of announcement a bit stinky re season ticket sales.


yes, Worcester arranged the timing of the announcement to stuff Edin ST purchasers.

The deal may have been subject to stuff we don't know about (like a medical), or it might simply be that Worc timed the announcement to boost their ST sales. The receiving team control official signing announcements, Edin have often staggered them as well to give a comms plan regular stuff.

Disappointing though, very, but maybe not a surprise



On the other hand it probably didn’t hurt their own season ticket sales to announce another B&I Lion joining them.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Alex Allan brought in on a super 6 partnership deal. We wouldn’t want him to be leaping ahead of Grahamslaw, but we also don’t want to be short when Schooey is with Scotland, even if the new league will supposedly minimise that time.

I was aware of that, it’s the lowest form of wit right enough.
