Sickening knowing just how good he is now..for us not him. Still a massive fan of his and itís brilliant seeing him do so well even if it is for Wales. Heís one player Id love us to have back. Heís such a good player and his progression has been amazing in such a short space of time.

Well done Josh and it was Vesty that brought him to us who was also the best backs coach we have had.

I thought it was 50 caps not sixty . Oh well I guess if he isn't injured and does the summer tours then that's about four years.

So pleased for him & proud that, with the Warriors help, brought him on to where he is today!

Eddie canít be held accountable if players want to swop allegiance surely. The guy played for our under 20s now heís suddenly more Welsh than Ruth Jones.

Not quite correct there exiled, he tried to play for England with Wales trying to coax him over, then when England totally snubbed him he made the tough choice of accepting the Welsh selection.

But then he was behind Slade, Joseph, Farrell and Tuilagi and may open a slot for Lawrence.

I may be really old fashioned Faithful in that I am English so wouldnít consider representing any other country, not that either was ever going to happen! I just find it disappointing when players jump countries, not just Tomkins, heís certainly not the first. Just makes a mockery of international representation when you can switch allegiances.

If he keeps up this sort if form heís got to be a shoe in for the Lions

Tompkinsí DNA is as much Welsh as he is English, so I donít have any problem unlike the vunipolaís who have no English DNA.

However if you qualify by residency, then why not as you are living in the country you are playing for and have done for several years.

Itís similar to myself, almost 50 years in Worcester, married a girl from Worcester, all my children went to school in Worcester, so am I Worcester or am I Manchester?
