Socino, Mulchrone to leave Titans
And coach Lee Blackett will be keeping his fingers crossed that it doesn't destabilise their promotion push.
Argentinean centre Juan Pablo Socino is expected to sign for Newcastle while Worcester have signed Charlie Mulchrone as one of their new recruits for next season.
Despite the news, Blackett will press on with his planning for the toughest three weeks of the season. Saturday's hard-fought 16-6 win over Moseley is followed by Sunday's trip to London Welsh and they then face successfive games against London Scottish and Bristol.
You'll find a full analysis of how Titans will cope with the loss of Socino and Mulchrone in this Friday's Advertiser.
