    He better be, we've had so many "very good" signings recently, I don't know what to believe. :S

    He`s a big ball carrying 8. Good signing for the Scarlets.

    Hes had 40 + caps for Australia and is a good player, suprised and your reaction really, would like to see him at the Blues to be honest!

    Well, the point is we don't need a good ball-carrying number 8 half as much as we need a decent front row. I guess my reaction was a bit drastic, but really, our scrum and breakdown is what makes us suck so bad, and I don't see how signing another ball-carrier is going to make us go forward any more than we have been, since we'll be playing behind the same pack anyway!

    Greg Somerville was meant to be signing but I guess that is up in arms because of Davies leaving!

    What's the deal with Popham? He looked like he had the makings of an excellent player but as done little this season. Perhaps the change of scenery will do him good... hope so cos I like him.

    He only has one mode and teams have now worked him out. He is dropping further behind in the Welsh pecking order!
