Sam Wainwright, 21 year old tighthead from RGC, joining Saracens. I remember seeing him at under 20 level without really making a big impression, but if Saracens have signed him he must have something about him. Not a bad learning experience for him, hopefully they turn him into another option for Wales.

Not sure what's in it for Saracens but hey is they improve him as a player why not. Good luck to the lad

Boyde to Blues confirmed. Good luck to him. Not sure if he'll get as much game time for the Blues but he's a strong squad member.

Good to hear he's staying in Wales :thumbup:

Blues have got decent backrow stocks now:

- N Williams
- Ellis Jenkins
- Navidi
- Robinson
- Boyde
- Turnbull
- Lewis-Hughes & Botham as young prospects

Decent Loose-head, Hooker and 2nd Row needed & they should be all set

Only just caught up with the comments on the Osprey V Scarlets game. Disappointed there was no mention of the tremendous effort Lydiate put in for the full 80mins. He really did well seeing as he has been out for so long.

He was the tallest dwarf.

Absolutely dreadful game, strewn with errors. 40-60 minutes the rugby was as bad as I've seen from any pro outfit.

How about you point out which part of my post is wrong or you disagree with rather than an ad hominem attack?

Tell us again how you’d shit on a seat to stop a Turk from having it you piss soaked old fart.

He’ll be a useful squad player no doubt, Ellis and Navidi are a bit fragile and Big Nick long in the tooth.

Pro14 has been an afterthought this season amongst many people i know due to the channel it's been put on. I can't recall watching one full game this season. A serious bollock has been dropped.

Odd that, give a team long term assurance they'll have one of the highest playing budgets in the British isles and money problems stop existing...

By who?

How much money did you contribute to the 4 regions before, compared to now?

Because they have a budget to keep to, have plenty of options at 6 and 7 and have had to replace Bulbring, keep Dan Davis, resign Gareth Davies etc

They can't keep every player. They're not Leinster.

Does anyone know how much money the WRU/Regions get from the Premier Sports deal?

You should keep an eye out on Premier Sport Free, they'll often have games and S4C shows games as well.

Reports said at the time of the deal that each Welsh region would get £2m compared to the previous £1m due to the Premier Sports deal.

I knew it was more I just didn't know how much more. Premier Sports have said they're very happy with the subscription rates from the Pro14 so with any luck this will continue and come renegotiation they can get more.

The money is welcome, and Premier Sports are clearly doing well as they now have la liga, serie a and the copa america soccer thingy. Some of their rugby coverage is a bit weak though.

Agreed, but as you say, the money.

On the upside it should have boosted attendances for the regions - has it? Also more visibility to club rugby via the BBC which I like with a nice glass of red

Tom James parting ways with the Blues - 32 years old and still wants to play, wonder if someone will come in for him. After his struggles with mental health it would be great to see him get out there professionally again.

He may not have been the complete winger, but I always loved watching him go on those mazy runs - hope someone picks him up. Good luck to him.

Regions attendances have gone down haven't they? But it has been good to see the club game get love.

Pulls out of an u20's game so he's not tied to the land of his birth, played for the micks at 7's and now called up for the saes. He's undoubtedly not committed to wanting to play for us, if he was he'd have played already. People have called Anscombe a journey man - at least he's committed to us, this lad hasn't and is unlikely to. Put it in a box and mark it must do better with young players in the future and then move on, we're fairly well off for 10's at the moment too.

He's certainly adept at keeping his options open, and no doubt England would give him the greatest earning potential, without having to leave Bristol. I'd have thought that of the three countries he was qualified for that England would be the weakest on the 'heart' element of the equation as he's only qualified through residency. I can perfectly understand why he would choose Ireland over Wales - both parents are Irish. I'm sure that would be a huge influence on how he felt about his own nationality. Can't imagine he grew up cheering on England though, may well have cheered on both Wales and Ireland...the question is who he supported when we played each other? I would guess Ireland, and maybe that will be the telling factor in the end.

I remember him being shit when I said the ospreys should sign him, now he's the second coming of Carter.. fudge me, why does anyone even argue with me about rugby??

Sheedys a good smart lad, not like most Welsh, his best option is to throw in with the Irish and become their fly half for the next 10 years, and they'd be smart too, with Clancy,lacy and brace not making the rwc, mitrea and nige soon to retire, they'll need all the help they can get, and it's always good to help charitable causes

Where, in either of the two posts that reference him, has anyone referred to his qualities as a player?

He's half-decent, no more.

You're a master at making shit up. I bet you voted for Farage and his mob in the EU elections, didn't you?
