We still on Donald or is there a different rumour now?
When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.

Yes it does appear to be correct, Donald is getting married in January so can't see him heading half way round the world and back again for that.
Lealiifano sensible enough thought as it gets him back into playing and leaves him with the possibility of heading back for Japan RWC

If Lealiafano recovers his best form after the illness, he'd be a great signing. Beautiful player to watch.

Short term deal for Lealiifano confirmed. Heading back down under in Feb for Super Rugby season.

Well it's a start and all we can hope is they get someone else to take his place or season ends when he goes home.

With the new set up, surely a 3rd place finish in the conference and a defeat at Munster/Ospreys/Glasgow in playoffs......

Starting to worry about our new 10 Christian Lealiifano, after the initial press all has died down and it is starting to look like there is some problem with this.

Rumours of insurance problems.
Not sure how much is speculation or genuine knowledge though.
There is also a bit of a queue for visas into UK so that is a other potential problem
