Welcome to the forum.

Tompkins gets mentioned on the bbc website. That has to be some great detective work, if it’s so.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Decent player and would complement our set up.

Richard Wiggleworth spoke very highly of him on this weeks rugby pod saying it was a classy player ready for international standard.

Looking at his highlights tape, he has all the skills at both centre positions. He's good in traffic and difficult to get to grips with and then to put on the floor. We're the opposition in quite a few clips with him scoring a couple of tries and also Jake and Foxy struggling to put him on the deck. He seems to have all the skills to make the step up.

Yes he has done some damage to us over the years. Our exiles programme continues to work. Get him and Ress-Zammit capped and wind fast Eddie up. Further down the line he would be a great replacement for Foxy along with Baldwin & Joe Roberts we will start to build some Welsh depth at 13. Get Owen Williams back along with GriffRhys - not too much to ask is it?

Official?

Strong rumour?

Speculation?

Probably got from the same source who told him Webb wasn't going back to the Ospreys.

No, I didn't make this one up, it's in the main body of one of the articles about the squad. Says Blues are looking to sign him.

No it says they tried to sign him last season. He has two years left on his Saracens deal.

Ah right I thought it said they were trying.


Martyn Phillips gone then, I wonder if it had anything to do with your Gyppo article? Good journalism there well done!

But with relegation for Sarries now a real possibility, they will be looking to offload players ASAP.

Yes I would have thought that would lead to Tompkins and Care coming to Wales.
