Have heard today that the Ospreys are loaning us a young prop who they think very highly of. He is not in their squad as far as I can see.

Do you think teams will target Simon Gardiner and try to put him out of the game so we have to play with 14 men???

It's going to happen though isn't it. It's pretty well documented about our situation with props.

If I had to choose between Phil John, Simon Gardiner and Rhodri Jones,for the tighthead spot then  I'm afraid it's got to be Rhodri. He's not played there recently, being preferred as a loosehead, presumably because we had the the 3 uncrocked THs plus Samson Lee as a long term prospect. With all these suffering nasty injuries  it may be time for him to switch back and bring Phil John and Gardiner off the bench on  the hour in their usual positions.

BBC sport today  -

One of Welsh rugby's forgotten men will attempt to kick-start his career by spending 2011 in New Zealand. Tight-head Prop Jamie Corsi, 22, has targeted playing in NZ's National Provincial Championship for Auckland via Papatoetoe Rugby Club. The ex-Newport Gwent-Dragons and Scarlet has suffered major back, elbow and shoulder injuries. The uncapped 2007 Wales tourist to Australia said: "The timing's right now to go out [to NZ] and try my luck."

Corsi played for Wales at Under 16, 18, 19 and 20 and also played rugby league at Wales age-group levels Under 13, 14, and 15. But after being released by the Scarlets at the end of last season, the 6ft 3in tight-head prop, who is currently training with London Wasps and playing for London Scottish in English rugby's third tier, says he has yet to return to the sort of condition that would warrant a top-flight professional contract.
