A simple statement like Gatlands along the line of out of sight out of mind would have done.


That hasn't stopped Hook etc has it .. ?
unless he goes to the Blues .. :wink:


What people forget is the comment was made about young players who havn't established themselves in the national side. Its not about the 'big' players it was aimed at stopping the youth leaving if they had International aspirations.

Delve know that :D

So the heart of the Welsh squad could emigrate without probs ?
Dev players take their place, no more/or additional NWQs and Regional and National performance would remain stable ?

Imo, the problem is a very difficult one in all aspects, .. nudge nudge and laid down law both have probs ...

Gut issue will be Club v Country players and fans .. and either could be playing with fire ...

Delve has never played in Wales.

Playing a 3 month season in a warm part of the world rather the long slog of a season in Europe must have been very tempting for somebody who's had such a severe injury toll.


I think its all positioning to get a much higher salary cap.........

DG,


First my ref to Delve was an 'aside' .. but certainly relevant.

my main point is a consistent one in my posts on this subject ...that it's a complex aspect with various issues internal to Union and cross Union too eg ERC and Elite alliance ....

Many fingers in the pie and potential legal consequence which can be confused .. cue the Tincu affair, .. he was banned by the ERC went to the french courts and continued to play in France. EU law another issue and some current Union initiatives suspect too.

Meanwhile, as I hope I pointed out, Gatlands non specific, open to interpretation somewhat cameleon remarks don't really work either ?

I believe that the state of flux of Pro Rugby runs deep and will take some time to sort out, ... these issues but indicative ...
