Rocket Rod Davies has decided to throw in the towel and move over to the cashed up French side, Biarritz, next season.
Rocket's departure is another loss to our constantly diminishing backline depth. Mike Harris has already decided to move on to the Melbourne Rebels next year. The loss of two star backs is an almost crippling result for a squad who struggled for real talent among injuries this season.
Hopefully the Reds brains-trust have their cheque books open, waiting for some decent talent to come on the market so they can snaffle them up for next season, otherwise we may be facing a similarly shocking season next year too.
Who can bolster the Reds diminished backline stocks?
