Are WOL right, or is this a very old story?

It’s a 2 yr old story that they seem to be adding as a link to current rugby stories
We're still still here!

Yes it’s from 2018. Shame he doesn’t want to try for Wales but he obviously loves him home town more than Llanelli or Wales. Shame as he is a very good player and isn’t going to get an AB cap.

Personally I wouldn’t select him for Wales ahead of the current back three or centre options.
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

I liked him, he ran some good lines. Hasn’t kicked on in super rugby though, sporadically makes the 23 and starts on occasion.

He served us well and we wanted him to stay but it’s his life so good luck to him and his Llanelli heritage

He was distinctly average whilst with the Scarlets!

Left us after picking up a Super Rugby contract. Coming over to us worked out well for him.

See Parkes, Beirne.

  I liked Collins lacked pace. but a typical New Zealand bread player .a good footballer and did all the basics well . He was also very proud of his Llanelli roots .

And didn’t let us down. I dislike it when some posters knock a Scarlets player and his abilities. We certainly played him enough times in a short stint and I hope he took his Llanelli memories back to Otago with fondness.

I reckon we should be shaping Asquith into our fullback. He has a good set of hands, seems to be under utilised. He’s a better defender than the fly halves we put back there. But we also have Prydie back in training after a long lay off with injuries. As much as I like Collins, we should look within.

Asquith has been such a good player.  I’m delighted that he Re signed . Fingers crossed that prydie remains injury free as he’s a quality player who I think has a lot left in the tank.

I liked Collins.  He was a no nonsense player who would play in whatever position Pivac asked him to play, and never let us down.
I doubt he’ll be back as he’s doing well in NZ but I’d have him back
