On the same paper, there’s talk that Tompkins isn’t going to the blues after all, could there be something going on?

Best years are behind him now unfortunately, either with Wales or recovering from team Wales.

Would like to see Owen Williams back at some point. If we lose Halfpenny he provides another kicking option also.

We must keep Leigh - he’s one of the very few that has still got it on the wrong side of 30. He’s worth his weight in gold - in my opinion

I couldn’t agree more, especially if he was to call time on his international career.

Hopefully there's no sign of Leigh leaving, but even if he did, we'd have enough goal-kickers in the squad that we wouldn't need a signing based on that skill. If Parkes decides to leave, we could really use Tompkins, even for a one season loan cameo, while we develop or sign the new generation of Scarlets centres. A tight-head and ball-carrying back rower would still be my top priorities.

Carre has signed for Cardiff.

Carre is a loose head anyway, we are well blessed there.

According to Ruck, we are talking to Joe Thomas, the Leicester Tigers centre and look to be signing the Fijian n8 from them as well.

No according the Rugby Paper. Ruck is an awful site

I wouldnt write Hadleigh off just yet. Clearly battered and shattered this season. But after a long rest he could have a very good year left in him. He has been a diamond for us and if he wants to stay I'll be pleased.

Our best signing from when Wayne took over so that’s about 5-6 years . We and Wales have done well out of HP and likewise he of us. It’s been a great relationship.Hope he stays but I have no issues if he wants a career finale on big wages and new life experiences in Japan.
