The more I think about it the more stupid it would be to get rid of him. We would be giving probably the best carrying 8 in the Prem to one of our main rivals for a top 4/6 finish. If he wants to go to France then fine, just please, not another English club. We would seriously regret that.
Quins let him go and they didn't do to badly in the last couple of years with the Premiership and the Amlin cup.
I think he is a great, exciting player but he is a marked man,
Having said all this. I hope he has a great season with LI starting in September 2012.
