Got that spot on!!

Bulbring is better than Cory Hill (though I will admit Hill had his best game in a Welsh jersey vs SA)

In that case, why are some comments dealing with when Bulbring will become WQ?

Or am I missing something?

(As far as Bulbring is concerned, let me be clear - he is doing well, and is a definite plus in the squad. I don't yet see any evidence that he'll challenge for the Wales squad, though.)

Aber I think the general thrust is we are happy with Bulbring as part of our 2nd row stable & he will become Welsh qualified before his contract expires in 2019. At that stage if we were to renew it would free up another NWQ spot. In theory we could have a number of current NWQ keepers - Asquith, Bulbring, McNichol who would bolster our International period squad.

A further point with regard to Bulbring. If he was Welsh qualified now I don't think he would be very far away from selection. Jake won't be fit for the start of the 6 nations so we will have AWJ, Hill, Seb Davies & Beard. They usually select 5 rows so who is next in line - Thornton has gone backwards, Bradley Davies' form has disappeared & Charteris is deemed too old. Dom Day doesn't qualify playing outside Wales so the cupboard is pretty bare unless I am missing someone. 

If, god forbid, AWJ had a long term injury we would really be struggling.

Day is still eligible because he's in contract
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

That makes sense, but I'm still not convinced (at all) that this is what the previous posters were thinking! But, hey, I'm not a mind reader.
