    Another very experienced player in Cordingley that the Rebels have signed, wonder who will be their 1st choice halfback, Cordingley or Kingi...probably Cordingley?

    Cordingley is currently playing for a team outside the Top 14; Grenoble are in Pro D1. I imagine he's being brought in to add experience to the squad rather than as a first choice player.

    I've got a funny feeling that Same Norton-Knight might sign for the Rebels, see that he's on his way out from the Blues after a terrible season. Especially with Parks coming to Cardiff and Blairs not leaving, and with the Rebels building a squad and all.

    I read some comments from Dai Young saying that Cardiff Blues weren't going to dump Norton-Knight but if the player found a suitable deal elsewhere, they'd probably allow him leave. Rebels could be an option.

    There was an article on the BBC website saying that it's very likely he's going to leave the Blues at the end of the season and that teams from Australia are interested in him. So wouldn't really be suprised if he did go back the Super Rugby.

    That dude isn't a great player by any means. However when he is on form I suppose he would be of some value to the Rebels. He is at least capable of playing at Super 14/15 level in some capacity.

    Eric, Sam Norton-Knight was playing with the Waratahs and Brumbies for the majority of the last 5 years. I reckon he is a very good footballer and there is no WAY he will go back to the Waratahs, so the Rebels seems like a viable option for him.

    that's what I reckoned, I mean part of the reason he's been so shite for the Blues this season is that he's been desperate to play Fly-Half, when frankly, he's not very good there. Probably has something to do with him not really playing there for a long time. But he has been pretty good when the Blues have played him at fullback (I think he scored all 3 of his Blues tries from fullback), but with Ben Blair staying, and with players like Chris Czekaj (who was superb at fullback vs Ulster) and Halfpenny being able to play there, there's not that much room for him in the starting 15. If he does go to the Rebels I hope he has more luck with them than he has had with the Blues!

    Agree with Thingimubob.

    He was poor at 10 for the Blues but at 15 did shine. Will add much needed experience to the Rebels.

    Kingi is the younger, more exciting version. He is like an even younger Genia.

    Should be interesting to see who does sign up over the next few months. I predict one or two more leaguies.
