Usually cross the bridge heading east, only.

Always prefer the Cotswolds, M50 and Heads of Valleys.

Cunning planning befitting a leading Financial Planner !!
The civil engineering work up on Heads of the Valley is pretty major and pretty impressive. EU funded I gather , But that is another tale 🤔

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.

It's the people/club organising the travel, imo.

Good to let some other teams go first, in this instance! Scarlets & PRW are aware of the reasons for the admin slip-up so we shouldn't see a repeat of this when the Welsh teams tour. Just stick close to Werner & Bulbring, anyway. Wink

Will have disrupted Leinster's preparations a little, but I'm really interested to see how the SA teams go at home this weekend - lots of free tickets being thrown around to get the crowds in, so atmosphere could be warm even if the weather in PE looks decidedly Celtic on Saturday evening.

Bit toastier in Bloem for Zebre, mind! Switching to the SA summer mid-season could be as tricky as acclimatising to a Welsh winter. Cool

Of course he does..... Just because you're qualified to play rugby for Wales doesn't mean you have a UK passport..... 

it also means he qualifies for a UK passport on residency.


Thought that was 5 years with a load of other gumf to go through?


Ah could very well be

UK/Irish/Aus players in our squad get an auto 90 Day entry visa ...

Applications for visa's (as Messrs Parkes, McNichol and Pivac may need) are for minimum 6 months...max 2 years.

It's the New Zealanders fault...they blocked visa on arrival for all Saffers last November...all the Saffers have done is reciprocate...

Known in my trade as Border ping pong...lives and breaths it every day I does...

Not sure how long visas last but McNicholl and Parkes have already played rugby in SA so will know the score. 
McNicholl having travelled there with Crusaders, and Parkes travelled with his sides and obviously having played for the Kings. 



I think that that these visa arrangements which apparently affect NZers only came in to effect this year. Parkes and McNichol have not played in SA this year to my knowledge !!!

Anyway, does the visa have to be renewed every visit ? Don't know the answer, but I wouldn't leave any stone un-turned !!

Probably has to be renewed, but for Parkes, it may be strong in his favour that he has already lived there for a while - probably a visa that has run out by now but point is they know the score. 

I thought these arrangements had been in for a while. but could very well be wrong on that.  

I know people from UK used to have a free visa in South Africa for 3 months. not sure if thats still the case. 
May not apply to parkes though...Welsh Qualified soon!! Depending on when he qualifies and when the fixtures are.
