Already being discussed in signings...

No harm in his own thread though. When he left he held my boy for a photo and I asked him to come back one day. He said maybe, one day.

If he does come it would be a waste for one of the 10s - we don’t need three of that quality. If he came back to play 10/15 maybe. Depends on Mc Nichol and Halfpenny too.

I can see an English club being keen though and he’s been living the high life up there. Hard to come back to deepest Carms as a youngish man unless he’s planning on settling down or taking up farming. 😉

We’ll see.

He's never moved from Cardiff, when playing for us or Bath.

Does Rhys have kids? He's a Cymro Cymraeg, and many of us do move back to bring our kids up speaking Welsh (I sort of think that may have been a factor in Stevo's return) - if he's in that position, he may at the least want to stay based in Cardiff, which would mean a Welsh region or a team not too far over the border...

Of course, if he's still single that would not be a factor ATM.

Could be a great signing if it happens, and he stays reasonably free of injury...
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

not got 60 caps has he and if he still thinks he can get in the welsh squad then I would think it would be a welsh region. unless he does want to go for last big pay cheque and I would then think france.

I think GPR was responding to Aber's point it being a team not too far across the border !!!

However that could also mean Glaws or Worcester !!

He's 32 today actually ( penblwydd hapus).

I'm a fan of having healthy competition in every shirt from 1-15...Rhys would present that to Rhys Patch, where maybe Dan is a shade lower in comparison ( might well come through though).

Having said that I'm also not a great fan of 'going back to your roots' either...in many cases the axis of the decision is often warped by sentiment (both player and club) or a sort of siege mentality that distorts it from being the right decision.
