Are the players who didn't sign
Tuilagi - Loss, but at 31 this next would've been his last regardless
Veainu - Loss, But Freddie Steward might get a good chance to step up early with Nadolo outside him.
Taufua - Loss, But I'm a very big fan of Tommy Reffell
Reid - Not really a loss have Henry coming in.
Eastmonf - Not really too bad with Scott incoming.
Bateman - suspect we will pick up a prop.
I agree with all that. I'm sad to lose Manu, but he's very expensive, we don't see a huge amount of him, and maybe not having a Tuilagi might mean that we develop an attacking game that's not LaunchTheTuilagi! I'd also be sad to lose Taufua, but he's not lived up to the hype so far and if he's not keen to stay, then he can go. Reid, Eastmond, and Bateman are squad fodder and Eastmond is massively disappointing based on what we know he can bring.
The only one I'm genuinely upset by is Veainu, as he is *such* a good player, but he's been our bright spark in a dreadful team for a long time and, if he's gonna get big money in France or Japan, I can't begrudge him that chance.
