I have a funny feeling that he will be with us next season on his NDC.
 
I know that WP has distanced himself but say what you like, he is box office, and would put bums on seats.
Also I think George would enjoy working with Stevo and the style of rugby he would be asked to buy into.
 
All will be revealed in the New Year.
 
I appreciate we need an 8 and another carrier up front, and that WP feels we have the youngsters out wide who are the future, but they can be developed gradually I suggest.
 
If we could help George rediscover the form he had a few years ago in Australia with the Lions, then he would be an asset for sure.
 
His game has stalled in his time at the Saints, which is no surprise.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see him resign for us on a NDC. He knows that he would get well looked after, not flogged, he would get a lot more ball in space, so wouldn’t be forced into taking contact (which he has been forced to do whilst playing for Northampton (in a very physical league) and for Wales.
He would get a chance to use his undoubted pace and get re-acquated with JD, and HP and also get to work under one of the most thought of and rated backs coaches in the game.
Why would he want to join any of the other regions in their current position.

He might be seduced by the fairy story of future dreams at the Dragons.

Whether that’s been written by the Grimm family, or that’s how it all ends with the lowest player budget, only time will tell.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Would be a key signing from a marketing perspective and undoubtedly put more bums on seats. I’d like to think that at 25 and after a downturn in form over the last few years he would see us as the natural team to help re-ignite his form. I’d be thrilled if he came back home, but wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t. We wait and see!

Martyn Williams reckons only two teams in the running. My guess is Drags and Blues.

I’d really rather not. We have a bit of money to spend and if we want to be a serious contender, year on year, for the league and the Champions Cup we need to nail this recruitment and George doesn’t represent value for money or a sensible signing.

The move seems to make more sense for George than for the club in my view. Wing is publicly not somewhere Pivac is in the market for.
His undoubted talent notwithstanding, NDC players are a double-edged sword missing the international windows and being limited in terms of availabilty.
He would benefit from working with our backline and the Midas Touch of Stevo, but at this point do we need to pump considerable money and obstruct the development of a possible future star by rolling the dice?
Personally I feel there are several other positions where we urgently need strengthening.

I'd be very surprised to see us pushing the boat out to land him like we did with Leigh. One thing we desperately needed was a reliable goal kicker and we signed a world renowned one. It seems like Pivac had been after Leigh for quite some time - I don't get that impression about George.

One thing we don't need is another Back 3 player who will be missing at the same time as Steff and Leigh.
We're still still here!

I doubt it.

George playing no 8, how funny would that be. He’s probably big enough and he certainly would take some stopping if he was to pick up and carry from the back of the scrum.
