Strange that,

Scott comes to Saints and is called a "Rugby ***" by his old
Rah-Rah club. Then he goes back to Union, having forgotten the remarks, only
to decide that he now misses RL. Can't the guy EVER make up his mind?

Incidentally, this reminds me of the time Saints FIRST tried to sign him. He
was driving to St.Helens to sign on the dotted line, when, half-way there he
turned back.

A good player he may be, decisive he 'aint!

Rob!

Saints 4EVA!

Scott Gibbs's problems are not because he went to play RL but the way
that it happend. He played the WRFU and his club against RL clubs. After
Richard Webster (Ithink it was him) went to RL Gibbs was made an offer
by his club and the WRFU that would have given him long term security
(coaching, development work) long after his playing career finished.

He took this and used it as a bargaining chip in RL. Enough Welsh RU
players have switched codes for it not to be an issue, its the manner of
how Gibbs did it that upset a lot of Welshmen.
