“As for the facilities at Parc y Scarlets, they are as good as I have seen anywhere around the world."

The idea is to grow the brand recognition for commercial purposes, international sponsorship etc.
Fantastic potential 
We're still still here!

I believe he and his wife live in London, where he's also a board member at the Quins.

Let’s hope that the commercial side - kit suppliers goes to Adidas ASAP.  Perhaps Sean dan speak to them 🤞. Harlequins have Adidas too .

Addidas would be much better i cant  see me buying another macron shirt , my all time fave shirts are the kooga ones of around 2007 

On the recruitment thats a great bit of business it will be great to have a man of his calibre around the parc

Yep, the Kooga's were my favourites too, I'd love us to sign with Addidas or Canterbury. It would be nice to see Scarlets shirts being sold in Pembs!

just an amazing signing for the scarlets and the brand of the name. one of the all time greats of new zealand and world rugby and a great speaker.
just to see him down the parc will be amazing, and what a link in for the board and to sources in new zealand. could this be part of the brad moarr leaving us deal with NZ? 
off the field the board are doing tremendously, with new professional full time chairman coming in after the amazing job that Nigel Short has done for us, putting us back from a mess to a professional run organisation is amazing, now the next step over the challenging future and we seem ready for it.
still taking in the news of Fitz being on our board. 
Once a Scarlet, always a Scarlet!
