I can see his point regarding O's, but surely not us!? Bit of sour grapes for signing Leigh perhaps?

'Cardiff Blues urge WRU to overhaul National Dual Contract system that favours West Wales regions

Danny Wilson has urged the Welsh Rugby Union to overhaul the National Dual Contract system following Leigh Halfpenny’s decision to reject a deal to return to Cardiff Blues in favour of joining the Scarlets.

The Blues coach warned west Wales regions Ospreys and Scarlets would get stronger at the expense of east Wales outfits Blues and Dragons if players were allowed to choose where they want to be based.'

So he'd rather a player be forced to play for an underperforming club?

The other way of looking at it is the Scarlets have 4 NDCs and  3 home grown playersand all are first team (definitely match day 23) players, and now we have Halfpenny 'placed' here with the WRU assistance

The Blues have 2, and only one is home grown.  The other was brought in with the assistance of the WRU.  Only one of their 2 is match day 23 really.
 
The Ospreys 8 NDC and 6 are home grown, 2 were 'placed' there with the assistance of the WRU.  Of their NDCs 4 are first choice 23.
 
The Dragons have 2 and both are home grown.  However neither are of match day 23 standard.
 
 
So from my point of view the Dragons can feel agrieved as they have not had WRU assistance to bring a player in from elsewhere.  And the Scarlets can feel miffed as our NDC lads are all first 23 international standard, unlike the other regions.  However the Blues have no grounds to moan.  They have had assistance to bring in as many players as us, and also only half of their NDC lads are up to international standards.

Your point is well made. In addition the only non home grown we have was not an established 1st class player when he joined us so Jake was a project. Thanks to his hard work & our management he has become the player he is. No end of coaching will make Anscombe a Wales 23 -player in my humble opinion.

Ospreys and Scarlets supply most of the Welsh team and have been (relatively speaking) the most successful regions in recent years, so deserve to be rewarded accordingly.  Time to shut up, Danny.

As for saying HP is a blues boy and came through the Blues academy, I understood that he was in the Ospreys academy. On the BBC Rugby website, next to his headline rant, is another headline, Edwards joins Blues coaching set up on part time basis, shall we all have a moan about that and complain it's not fair
