Great for him but FFS.
Could be without May, Veainu, Holmes in the back 3

Doubt Veainu will go with Tonga, they won't be able to afford his insurance cover I'd guess.

Gatlands law (its actually the WRU Law) kicks in when a current contract expires. So if the players doesn't have 60 caps and still wants to play for Wales they have to play for one of the regions. I went to dinner where Gatand was the speaker last week and specifically asked about "Gatlands Law". The question for the player is will they be a nailed on starter or a useful squad player? if the latter, is the move worth it?

Very well deserved, many of our fans think he has been our best player this season, Gatlands law only applies when he says it does.

The WRU law applies at all times. Gatland plays second fiddle as witnessed when he said he would quite like access to Rhys Webb now at Toulon and Martin Phillips (WRU CEO) told him in no uncertain terms NO

Possibility of Holmes and Moriarty in the same team! (Nicked it from the Guardian).

So, when his contract with us expires he'll presumably be off to Wales.

Worked out well for Hamilton ...

No guarantee of that happening and we should be confident to push the positive reasons to stay.

Came here to post that!

Wonder how the undisclosed contract length works with Gatland's Law?

Signed before he was selected, apparently, so should be good for a little while yet at least.
