Other Side Of The Scrum

Sarries have shored up their front row contingent by recruiting Italian international Fabio Ongaro, another Hooker, for next season. Ongaro was last seen at Vicarage Road on the other side of the scrum, when his current club Treviso paid a visit in the Heineken Cup pool stages. This photo shows Ongaro getting a ticking off from the ref before packing down for another scrum. Let's hope he behaves himself when he's on our side!

They've also signed up Samoan prop Census Johnson, but as yet, I don't know anything about him, so I can't comment. We seem to have plenty of grunt in the front row now, what with Cobus Visagie, Yatesy and Ben Broster being regular first teamers. Cobus and Broster are both Tightheads, so perhaps Mr Johnson is extra cover for Yates in the Loosehead position?

Cencus is a rampaging ball-running tighthead prop who reached great form in the Air New Zealand cup for Taranaki. He scored a few tries is still very young for a prop at 23 years of age
