I don't actually know what level Prydie can play at...very difficult for the guy, capped at 18 and then released by the O's and ends up in a Dragons team that is one costume change away from an Italian club for most of the last 5 years.

If we have money, any money, let's sign Berne up after next year.


Quite agree about Beirne- but again we're into deep waters as to what Tadhg will want to do and whether our connections with the Irish management (Easters) can swing something. Prydie is going to need time- if we see anything much of him before Xmas, I'd be surprised. But he should be ready for the games during the 6 nations.

Prydie obviously got talent but has played in poor sides with our backs he will be given an oppurtunity to shine. Look at Jon Evans since he came was on verge of Welsh squad during season was nowhere near before he joined us. Stef Hughes if injury free could also have big season and will be important during autumn intls. Agree that we should be doing all we can to keep Beirne but also Rawlins Price and Bullbring with Jake got very good strength at 2nd row.
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

If Halfpenny becomes available, all conditions can be met and we have first refusal, then we`d be idiots not to sign him. He`s only 28 and is one of the few genuine match winners in the professional game. He also brings a fair degree of intelligence to the table as well.


In Pivac we trust

Do you really mean we have first refusal on signing 1/2p?

No. He means if we had first refusal, we would be idiots not to sign him. If.

If a region makes an offer, does that make him a wild card IF he goes to an AVP club? Will Gatland's law disintegrate yet again?

Surely the Blues offer for him a few months ago makes him a wildcard.

Did the Blues actually make an offer? They were lining one up butthey and the WRU could not agree the length of contract.

He's already a wildcard. 

Faletau, Halfpenny, Roberts, Sanjay, Priestland and I think Charteris current wild cards IIRC. 

Tom Francis, Owen Williams, not captured. 

Not sure about North.

I thought you became a wild card if you turned down a regional offer to go to AVP or T14?

Apparently Charteris is not a wildcard as he signed for Bath before a formal offer was made from a region. North is a wildcard though.

I would think that halfpenny would be a wildcard as he has been offered an NDC however they couldn't agree on the length. Halfpenny wanted a 2 and a half year contract so he could play super rugby.

Quite concerning there have been no formal announcements though of 'New' Signings. No replacements rumoured for Bernado and Morgan Allen and the only signing of note to replace Sanjay and DTH is Prydie.

Agree.  Baffling there's no announcements on those "done deals" with training starting next week!!
I would say that Morgan Allens replacement is both Macleod and Tom Phillips. 

Bernardo....needs a replacement as we only have 4 locks. 

Prydie..."close to announcement" what seems like MONTHS ago!!! is it still happening!?

Think Pivac sees us having 5 locks - Rawlins, Beirne, Ball, Bulbring & Price. I know many on here have questioned whether Lewis is a 5 or 6 but from his performances alongside Beirne in the Dublin matches I think he has removed any doubts once & for all.

Priestland won't be a wild card next season. His contract with Bath expired and no-one in Wales took him on based on his true market value. On that basis, he isn't caught next season
