There's no doubt that the Scarlets style would suit Josh and give him a chance to shine. If he likes playing on artificial turf, however, Cardiff would be a good move and they have some exciting young backs too.

Just as long as it not the Hairsprays.



Whatever you do, do it safely!

Yes, my old home town team has never been the same since those bandits from The Gnoll were forced upon us.

As for Josh, I do wonder if his previous time at Llanelli/Scarlets will work for or against him. It didnít seem a logical move when he came to Wuss, something went off the rails somewhere.

I thought Adams/someone else made a comment about the coaching at the Scarlets which made him unhappy there, hence how Vesty convinced him to join us, could be wrong though.

I hope he goes somewhere he can still progress at regional/club level (if he goes), could be interesting regarding the Scarlets as Pivac will be Wales coach after the WC.

Quite simple really, he wasn't offered a contract with them and we stepped in.

Scarlets haven't appointed a successor for Pivac, yet, so I expect he'll bide his time and see what develops.

I read somewhere that Francis the Exeter prop and Wales' number one choice tighthead has fewer than 60 caps but is refusing to go to Wales for obvious reasons. There was talk of changing the rules for him, which they could hardly do without doing the same for Josh Adams.

MM, I believe Francis had a clause in his contract from a couple of years ago so can still sign another contract with Exe.

Thanks. I suppose our Josh didn't think he'd be playing for Wales two years ago!

Francis has a built in extension option which was in his existing contract, hence he could take it up without having a new contract. This was the crucial point.
