The one year co-funded contract is interesting. Is it: - let him prove himself, or - we're bolloxed for budget, so lets make space next year and ask the IRFU for an advance for now Either way I think he can add a lot, assuming some kind of fitness, as an auxilary playmaker, making them far less pre...
