    So much for Munster wanting to sign Flutey to replace de Villers. Riki moving back to Wasps is a huge bonus for them, he will slot nicely back into the back-line and will give some good experience to the younger players of the squad.

    Wonder how much his sallary for this year was - Not very good value for money on Brives account, only playing 5 games, he's as fragile as Wilkinson these days!

    Good to see him back over this side of the channel though, makes his selection for the England squad a little more acceptable (a Kiwi living in France playing for England really made no sense)

    Must say in 1 way I glad we didn't get him as he is injury prone,

    But I respect him because Olyy you mention Salary and I can confirm Munster had alot more on table than Wasps and he decided to go to club that is his roots over money.

    A club that's his roots? He barely spent 2 years there after jumping ship from Irish. And hewas only there for around 18 months.

    He's had more clubs then Matt Dunning has had cream buns.

    Which isn't a million miles from London. I know I'm clutching at straws, but it's the best I've got right now :D
