Rich Basset is a superb player and one of the most skilful front row players I’ve seen.
Unfortunately what will hold him back is a lack of size, compared to say, Ben Leung. Bassett is a far superior player in every facet of the game (in my opinion) but his comparatively small frame means Leung gets opportunities while Rich hasn’t.

Rich came over from Llanelli Wanderers and is really mobile ,energetic and skilful for a prop. Yes needs conditioning but a little power house of a player.

Good to know. We need props who are contenders to back up the Scarlets squad - it's a tough position, where players can easily get injured.
