Some speculation this morning that his move to Bayonne might fall through as they have failed to gain promotion to the Top14 for next season.

Would he add any value to our midfield if we stepped in to offer him an alternative move?

Thoughts welcome.

The last thing the Scarlets need is to sign a player on big wages who will be missing for large chunks of the season. 
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Large chunks? 

I thought Pro16 next season will only play on one or possibly two weekends when there are internationals taking place?

Add in all the training camps etc and it’s significantly more than that.

That’s true. We’ve got plenty of them.

He’s a great player, big fan of his. But, as mentioned previously, maybe not the best investment with regards to wages and game time ratio. 
Only one team plays in red. (Sorry, Scarlet)

As soon as he plays well he’s in the Scotland team again. I’d like us to target a big pacific islander forward, and a back who is regularly available.

I mean if we could clone Lousi we’d be set at second row

Townsend doesn’t seem to rate him. Left him out of the World Cup squad and only played off the bench in 6N (I think)

He may play well for us and I think Scotland have their centres in Harris and Johnson. It’s my understanding Townsend doesn’t rate Jones’ defence. So he might not be what we’re after…

He’s a good player. If we could secure him on reasonable wages I think he’d probably be a good signing.

Also, I’ve got a signed shirt of his which I won as a result of picking Hardy being the first try scorer in the game up at scotstoun in 2019.

So he should sign for us
