    Two gypo welsh players to sale, not really expecting much. Probably just squad players for when we have internationals.

    Theyv'e also signed David Akinluyi from Cambridge Uni (wing) and Christian Short from Connacht (lock).

    That this rate, they'll turn into Worcester considering all the un-pronouncable names... :ph34r:

    lee byrne is rumuored to be going to the ospreys, martyn williams looks likely to sign with perpignan, and the ospreys look close to signing nz flanker jono gibbes.

    Hala'Ufia is a no.8 (Tongan international). Golding is a prop with a LOT of potential. Began his career with Northampton.

    Par for course - release decent props but keep utter crap like Robbie Morris

    Byrne would be a good signing for the Ospreys, but I'd rather he didn't go. Other than Barry Davies, we don't have any really good full-backs at Stradey :( (Yes, I do know about Garan Evans, but he's hardly played in ages and he's listed as a winger on the Scarlets website)

    I think it's sad that NH clubs can't develop their own players.

    You could say that about the SH teams, why have they got all those fiji/soman/tongan players?

    Southern man Guest

    Who are from the SH, who are born in New Zealand. Most NH clubs would have more pacific islanders than our provincal squads. Atleast we don't have to buy washed up players from other countries to make our competitions look good.
