Bath move for Regan
With Leicester emerging as favourites to secure the services of a second Bristol Lion, the lock Simon Shaw, fears of a new outbreak of asset-stripping at the Memorial Ground gathered pace. Unlike Regan, who has another year left to run on his contract and would therefore be the subject of a substantial transfer fee, Shaw becomes a free agent next month.
Both men will definitely leave Bristol if the worst comes to the worst and the club fails to survive next month's play-off double-header against either Coventry or, more likely, Bedford. Under those circumstances, they might well lose Martin Corry, their captain, into the bargain. His CV has been circulated to the richer and more secure top-flight clubs in recent weeks and a strong showing on this summer's England tour of Argentina could provoke a stampede for his services.
However, the West Countrymen are confident of retaining elite status and, in a declaration of serious intent, have successfully negotiated a new three-year deal with David Corkery, the Irish international flanker.
Andy Gomarsall has recovered from a groin infection and replaces Martyn Wood at scrum-half as Wasps attempt to tie up the championship at Northampton tomorrow.
