Those No.8's on the list keep getting snapped up elsewhere.

Let's hope the powers that be have something lined up!!!

There is speculation over Owen's future as his contract is up in the summer - that's natural. A tale I've heard is that Worcester are prepared to offer him an attractive contract, but who knows how much truth there is in that..?

Well so I'm told anyway. I'm certainly not privy to the details of his contract.

Apologies- sounded abrupt but wasn't intentional. My point was much speculation when he signed the contract but the official stance from the club was 'undisclosed' but 'long term'. Obviously this could still mean two years.

That's why I asked. I guessed he would not return to Wales as the only realistic berth was Ospreys, but ....Wuss....possibly in the Championship? :smt004

Ospreys? A realistic berth? :smt043

With Dan Biggar, plus Sam Davies (who has been pushing Biggar for the starting 10 shirt, relegating Biggar to the subs earlier in the season),there's no way that they or Owen would be interested.

I'm not saying Williams is interested in moving either I guess it might ride on Ford going to Tigers or Sale or staying put at Bath.
