Well yeah, but it's safe to say he'd have an easier time communicating with a fellow Russian speaker, as his English is still developing. Certainly he could do without one, but it wouldn't do him any harm to have a guy to help confirm some phrases he may not understand. I say this also as a Russian speaker who had to learn English when I came to Canada - it's extremely invaluable to have a guy you can communicate in your mother tongue with.

However, I could also be digging much too far into this, and Mason wouldn't be a bad addition to the squad, I just believe Khabi will soon serve a more valuable purpose in the dressing room.
