The quote I posted above was apparently what was said by Wayne.

I'm not surprised that Wayne is looking at new back 3 players, we can not put all our eggs in 1 basket, and George will pick what he feels is the best for him, I'll not be surprised if he goes else where, he will want to play in ALL of the big games. and in the Scarlets there is no guarantee of that, and hand on heart I'll have no grudge against him, and just wish him the best. 
Be careful when you pick up the stick.........IT MAY BE THE WRONG END!!!!!!!!!!

Been going on weeks/months!!!

make your mind up man!


To be fair I think Wayne said a couple of weeks ago, that a decision wouldn't be made until after the 6 nations. Now thinking back the initial announcement that I think was made in November (ish), it is my thinking now that George had it in his mind he was joining the Ospreys but he is now waiting to see if they qualify for the Champions Cup before he makes his final decision.

 
Can't see that happening?

People are moaning about this saga, they should cast their minds back to the Leigh Halfpenny saga.

Also a bit further back when we were greatful for even being in the running of a rumour.

All part of the thrill of being champions for me.

Players don't just sign contracts because a few fans are 'bored' of waiting!

North signing an NDC without agreeing a club was unusual in itself, and it's been made clear that nothing would be decided or announced until after the 6Ns. The row with Gaffney at Saints needs smoothing over before next season is sorted, I'd suggest, then it's up to George to consider where he wants to be.

The NDC set-up is curious - presumably the salary terms are set, as the 60/40 payment split is set in stone, so it should just be down to club factors - facilities, culture, style of play and (perhaps importantly for Gatland, Wales & George) whether they see him developing into a centre. Gatland has floated this idea numerous times, as recently as in the last fortnight, so this could have a strong bearing on the ultimate destination. How Ospreys or Cardiff could give constructive input on this discussion without head coaches in place at present, I'm not sure.

I do also wonder if additional 'sponsorship' may be used to supplement the NDC, eg - if Carmarthen Candles sponsored George to play for Scarlets, could this be a legitimate way of enticing a player? Not sure how he NDC 'rules' (if there are any) would play out.

All logic points to a return to Scarlets, although I don't doubt that there'll be various push and pull factors - emotional and financial - for all destinations. But let's not write it or him off because it's taking longer than some of us can bear - there's always another #Tnewsday...

I think Nicky Thomas is with the Dragons currently. He played for the Dragons against us in the hammering we gave them start of this year. Nicky was taken off along with Luke Garrett (who was on loan here last season) after 30 minutes due to our front row completely bossing theirs

He went to the Dragons on loan and signed a permanent deal.
Shortly after, he was one of the subs Jackman made against us after Just 30mins blasting the players as not good enough...
Jackman then gets rid of Phil Price. Odd call! It’s playerike price Jackman needs! His loss most certainly our gain.

OBrien, Price, Wells and AN Other! TBC by us.

indeed. Jackman comes across more of a bully with zero man management skills than a head coach.
