Post Ashley Beck to leave Wales
Signed by Worcester for next year (BBC).

He has Wales caps so will be officially ruled out of the national side (not that he was getting picked anyway).

Exceptionally injury-prone and, even when available, far too fragile for Test rugby, so I think neither he nor Wales will be especially bothered about him not being eligible for selection. Let's just hope he can get a fresh start at Worcester.

He is one of these players I am always waiting to 'break through' into the big time. His clock has been running a long time now though and it looks less and less like he ever will.

Really liked him as a player early on... but Roberts and JD ruled the roost with Scot Williams an adequate stand in

Injuries have robbed him of a yard of pace and he has next to no acceleration now

He is one of those players I think will become really good for Worcester. He has had some good games.

It's nice to have two legs that are okay.

Hes done a lot of work with Trebanos and deserves credit for putting a great deal back into the game. Had nice hands and never really fulfilled his potential due to injuries. Good luck to him, he is due some.

Wasn't he an Aberavon player?

A classy player and would have been a regular in the Wales match day 22 if not for the injuries. Good luck to him.

Yes he was, good step, big lad but never quite got the breaks because of the aforementioned players in front of him, then injuries prevailed. Still only 27 though and hopefully some good times ahead for him!

A very bad move by Scott, he will rue the move.
Ashley Becks injuries are probably due to the 'style' of play by the Ospreys.
Really sorry for Scott, his handlers have given him very poor advice.
Playing for Scarlets hadn't stopped him being in the Wales squad and now, probably, pencilled in for the rest of the 6N.
