Maybe I am being naive but it seemed to me that at the time of season when budgets were being set and contracts handed out Purdy was injured and then only got fit again towards the end of the season at which point we had already done our business for the year so there was no chance to keep him? Or does everything have to be a conspiracy.

That is spot on and Henry was very disappointed as he had been verbally promised a new contract. Since leaving he has experienced rugby in New Zealand and done well at Coventry. I hope he does well at Bristol (apart from two games :D )

Same here. Didn’t deserve to be treated the way he was.
Hope he impresses at Bristol and earns a contract

Jamie Roberts leaving Bath for the Stormers, with immediate effect. Josh Matavesi joining Bath from Necastle, also with immediate effect.

Only seen on rugbypass so Rumours thread seems best place for the time being, but they are reporting that Saracens now face the prospect of automatic relegation...
