Where’s he from? Are there any factors that could influence his decision?

Morriston, the only reason I think he'd sign for the Dragons is if he didn't want to move from Gloucester because it's a shorter commute
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Seems they're trying to make a high-profile example of Webb to get others' attention, and maybe to 'encourage' him consider not signing the final contract with Toulon - somewhat clumsy, if so, although they seem to accept that there may be at least one top-drawer casualty. Ouch

If I was Webb, I would take the money. Simple as. He's played for Wales and the Lions. His only blemished is that he will miss out on a RWC and he played for the Os. LOL

If I had his injury record I'd sign the biggest contract I could at his age.

I hate Derwyn, wouldn't be surprised if he kept this 60 cap thing from Webb in order to get the payday off a big move.
