Oh, I do hope Whitelocks "sabbatical" will be with Quins. After all, we have that special deal...

I’ve heard it’s a done deal.

OK. I think I've covered every 2018 All Black. Any errors, omissions, updates let me know.

A few players updated above. Racing apparently wouldn’t give Read a 3 year deal so he’s looking at Japan, as apparently are Crotty, Coles and A. Smith.

Matt Procter is off to Northampton. That’s a real blow. With Crotty and SBW probably off he could well have become a long term starting All Black.

I agree it's a blow. And I certainly think he deserved far, far more test opportunities than he got. But he's a centre who, had he stayed, would've been playing in Goodhue's shadow.

We are seeing an ongoing production line of promising midfielders though, with Jack Goodhue and Laumape knocking about. There are also good middle-management midfielders available like my boy Buckman (who really should've been an All Black by now, IMO), Matt Faddes and Tim Bateman. There's also the next generation coming through like Vince Aso, Billy Proctor, Bailyn Sullivan and Tumua Manu who are worth a long-term investment.

It sucks that he's leaving, but at the end of the day, he needs to do what's right for him, and if the British dollar is good enough for him, then we can't begrudge his decision.

Jeff Toomaga-Allen off to Wasps to join Brad "The Plastic Englishman" Shields. Looking like that Japan cap has been lucrative for fringe players.

Perpetually on he fringes, and almost 30, while younger props like Tyrel Lomax and Atu Moli are starting to emerge and earn caps, not to mention the good Alaalatoa brother, who'll probably get capped in the next couple of years. I like Toomaga-Allen, but it's clear that he's starting to get lost in the shuffle and I can't blame him for deciding to get going while the going is still good.
