        Good point, if they think Williams is the next in line then get him game time or is it that no one wants him. I did say on here when talking about NIQ seasoned pros that if you were an English club looking for a guy at SH to do that role Stringer would be one of the first names. Seems that is indeed the case.

          The way he is being treated when playing better than anyone bar Murray is shameful.

          It weakens our team; it weakens our recruiting - if they do that to their own, playing better, why would you go there?; and it makes a mockery of the idea we like to have of loyalty as a core value.

          Pride and Honesty* *Terms and Conditions Apply. Great ring to that, huh?

          That he has not yet told us to go fup ourselves with this ****e is a big a testament to him as his treatment has been shoddy.

            I'm sure he would have moved on permanently by now had it not been for the tax rebate. This is a good thing for him, he can play a standard of rugby more fitting for him.

              Strange time to go on loan IMO with Murray off to the Irish camp.Still I suppose Sheridan will get some exposure to rabo games over the next while,which can only be a good thing.

                  As for game time... Stringer has started two (the most recent one being the game against Connacht where he was top-class), come on in seven. Williams has started seven, come on in two. Williams has hardly been kicking his heels on the sideline.

                    As long as he won't play against us were we to qualify for the Amlin then good for him. I think he should be starting (EDIT benching obviously) on sunday but he is obviously regarded as being surplus to requirements so why not head off and get some game time. And as Taz correctly said it would give Sheridan a bit of time off the bench in the rabo, especially as this side to side tactic would test the stamina of Mo Farah or even the mother in law!?!

                      While I can entirely see that, Bugler, the people paid to make these decisions are paid to make them for Munster's benefit.

                      Weakening us while treating a genuine legend so shabbily is not to our benefit.

                        Is Strings on a heavier wage than Williams? If he was at Baff would it lessen the payroll somewhat?

                        Part of me thinks that's why Drico was shorn of the Irish captaincy also, should he be considering a contract renewal/extension it would be a lot easier for the IRFU to haggle with a team player than a captain over the wages

                          very true and I did think that at the time, just personally I'd say while Murray is around having Stringer around as back up would serve us better than having Williams playing the back up role for a year, in and out of side. Also if he is our long term then some outside experience wouldn't hurt.

                            Loan club pays the wages. I think.

                              I can't see any rugby logic to it at all.

                              We are sixth in the Pro12, mostly due to taking one, Stringer-driven, point out of ten against Welsh sides we should have beaten. A home Rabo semi is worth a lot of money to a cash-strapped organisation - certainly more than three months' wages for one player. We just cannot finish outside the top 4. We have to win all these upcoming games during the 6N, ideally win big. This is not about development; we frittered away that luxury with sloppy losses. This is about winning, right here and now.

                              Murray is our first choice. He'll be away.

                              So, we have two experienced 9s available for a key decision-making slot for vital games.

                              Williams is playing like a drain; that's the long and short of it. He was diabolical in those losses at home against Scarlets and Cardiff, and by this stage, it is undeniable that he is playing badly. We can't have a scrum-half playing badly in must-win games. He's staying.

                              Stringer is our only other experienced 9 for this crucial run of games. He is playing well, arguably very well. He rescued a four point win instead of an LBP in Connacht. Yet he is being sent on loan.

                              Can anyone explain the logic of that to me?
