I was talking this over with my Dad at the weekend and while an undoubted talent, I think it's the best decision for him to join Sale rather than return to London.
For one thing the Meejah should leave him well enough alone up there - maybe that's naive but if he went an a night out to a club with mates in London I reckon the tabloids would be out in force regardless of what he did or when.
He is talented but we've had our fair share of talented mercurial types. If we convince Stephen Jones to join then I could see him being a better mentor for Shingler.
