An interesting return to his RU roots, not to mention becoming London
based for his summer committments and thus being on the doorstep for
his winter ones.  I may have missed this from an earlier post, but are
there any mooted links between RL & RU clubs now that the seasons do
not clash??

Didds.

It's a possibility that Iestyn Harris of Warrington could do a similar
thing. Half the Wigan squad have cottoned on to the idea as well. Most of
them seem to be on the way to Bath for the winter with Tuigamala either
going to Orrell or Wasps.

Interesting times ahead if a player gets picked to tour with the RL
national side *and* the Union national side at the same time.
