Hope not. Don't rate him at all. Would much rather we developed our own talent or get Collins back or someone similar.
Only one team plays in red. (Sorry, Scarlet)

Why? We can pay him more money and there's the carrot of test rugby. Super Rugby is losing players at a rate of knots


There's the carrot of a NZ cap as well for the five first choice Super rugby full backs. OK Smith is the incumbent and Jordie Barritt is 20 and fantastic but a coupe of injuries and Collins has a chance. And I suspect an AB jersey would be a bit more special to him than the Welsh one. 

He'll never play for the All Blacks. He's not quick enough.

Don't know why people keep saying he isn't quick, ran in a 50 metre try against the western force yesterday. Has CLEARLY got enough pace, running in tries agianst current wallabies.

I would definitely have him back, it was pleasing to see him put the hammer down and run in that try against the Force.
It would be a pleasant surprise to see him back.

Michael Collins YES, but hope rumours on Prydie are not right, had potential once, but now an injury prone squad player at best in my opinion. certainly not a replacement for Liam!

collins would be a good signing, played well for us and solid. ticks lots of boxes. no.8 is needed, just wonder who this south african is as per scarletnuts earlier comments and if there are any actual legs in it.
prydie is not bad, is no world beater but i imagine he would not be expensive and he is a goalkicker too.
we have been spoilt with sanjay, sadly dth has only shown glimpses of what he can do. 
just think a big south sea islander would be quite nice as an option...playing him on the wing or at 8 Wink

Collins is one of those deceptive runners who doesn't look fast but moves along pretty well. Superugby is struggling financially and geographically and I wouldn't be surprised if we can tempt him back. His bamp lived in Llanelli so he has a family connection.

I'd welcome it! We need a dedicated 15 - although Mikey used to fall off the odd tackle didn't he? It's a Super Rugby trait seemingly.
