    Ben Mowen is back in Brisbane - flew in from France on Friday, coming off the bench for his old club Easts this afternoon.

    Back to the Brumbs or to the Reds? Do we need another flanker? He must be like 36 now.

    I think he retired from top line rugby so probably doing it to stay fit

    Yes don't think he is looking for a contract, just a chance to turn out for his local club again - he played there as an amateur as did his father. Great to see that he is keen to do it - very few Reds players turning out yet in the Premier comp in Brisbane.

    Miller a very good player and be interesting to see how he develops under Brumbies who are renown for developing players which is why it seems Brumbies get over and above pretty good quality players wanting to join their roster. As Canberra not my first pick of a place to live and still have ugly memories of living in Canberra winters when I lived there for two years early in my career.

    yeah, he's saying it in the context that he had a good chat with the coach and how positive those discussions were. It was more than just administration doing the recruitment.

    Don't think there's anything scurrilous in it.

    Who is Albert Watego? He scored 4 tries from flanker in the John Dent. Seems promising?

    Brumbies have signed scrum half Lachlan Albert on a 3 year development deal.

    He's been part of the Australian schoolboys side.

    Long term changing of the guard.

    2020 : Powell, Lucas, Lonergan;
    2021/22 : White, Powell, Lonergan;
    2023 : Powell, Lonergan, Albert;
    2024 : Lonergan, Albert, Another, after Joe moves o/s after a successful 2023 RWC.

    You think White's at 28 29 isn't going to have a crack at a second world cup after this one ? 32 - 33 or you think his off as soon as this ones over and his contract ends ?

    I reckon there'd be a fair chance Powell will go overseas for a year or two at the end of next season. Not much point being stuck behind White and would probably be good for his development.

    Has White signed with anyone yet?

    No He hasn't and he could very much end up at the Rebels as much as the Brumbies.

    All three scenarios are more than possible. My take is that Nic will re-sign with the Brumbies (no mail though), and will probably retire or head o/s again after his contract expires. Joe will stay on while Nic is here on the understanding he will again take on the Brumbies' starting spot and be a good chance of starting for the Wallabies, and that he will then head o/s after the 2023 RWC. Nothing more than gut feel for any of this.

    That's a fairly in depth analysis for a gut feel!

    Just a gut feel of mine, don't rule out White turning up at the Tahs ;)
