I've still got a gripe, big surprise I know! Bit confused if the director or coaching at the Vikings are picking the best club players or picking them for development reasons?
You 'gripe' about a certain player as a means of justifying your stance. Mention that Rugby News has him as one of their 10 most talented unsigned talents and when it appears the Vikings have recruited him you quickly rush to move the goal posts from whinging about not giving local talent a look in to whether they are doing so on talent or development potential.
You are aware that selecting the best club players as a means to develop them go hand in hand with the NRC alongside providing more opportunity for signed talent.
I doubt it would matter whether or not the Vikings were entirely club source. You'd 'gripe' regardless.
