As injury cover. So, we might be another one down for next week...

Can't Wales find injury cover from a team that isn't completely ravaged by injuries itself?

I'm genuinely concerned we won't be able to fill a squad at Sandy Park.

I think Scrum Half is our real concern for this weekend. I'm almost willing to bet we rope in a guest/loan player or two. Even if Smith is released back to us midweek, that would mean we have one fit half-back pairing of Lang & Smith (with Smith covering SH).

Luc Jones is the obvious one if we can prise him away from Richmond, as he was at least with us last season as injury cover

Postscript, scrub that idea, just seen he's been cited for a tip tackle at the week-end

Well, he's not in the Wales 23 announced for this w/e, so presumably he's available for selection for us if we want him.

PPS Just seen the citing got dismissed so could be available for our next SH injury(Sm100)

For fear of starting an entire thread from this time last year again -- I seriously doubt it. He's got provisions to do with Wales in his contract and given I don't think he's appeared for us during an international window.

So if he's not required for the Wales squad (i.e. presumably he was released?) then why is he not helping the club that pays his salary by busting a gut to make himself available in our hour of need?

Maybe he has built-in 'holiday' provisions during the international window so that even if he isn;t selected he can read some more books or something, but (in the absence of the club explaining why he isn't in the match-day 23) it doesn't say much for Roberts, does it?

He's a travelling reserve for Wales this weekend. What does that say about him?

JK’s video on Twitter says Roberts is still with Wales’s squad, so that’s why he’s not with us.

Because O Shea let him sign a contract that prioritised Wales over Quins. Says more about him than Roberts.

He's already got his Senior rail card?
