Excellent news and what a statement. I am sure his stock has risen considerably after his splendid first season, so a big feather in the caps of all concerned.

Well I know his statement will have been corporately drafted but it is true that a player with his potential signing a 4 year contract at this stage is an indication of belief that club can deliver to his aspirations and the coaching set up can enable him to perform at the very highest level

Nice one!

My favourite player and I think there are a few others on here who give him the same label. Only a matter of time before he gets a cap, to have him with Anthony Watson, Joe C, Brew and Roko is a luxury.

He looks to have a lot of tools in the box and had a great season but it is hard to see him getting into the England back 3 at the moment. There just aren't any spaces available.

Great news as said above the stand out improved player last season.......which is why he won all those awards!

Now we just need a pack and half backs focused on getting the ball and then getting it to our back 3.....whoever they are at the time.

+1

Even more of a star given that our wingers don't get to see much of the ball.

Well done to ever was responsible for getting him to commit long term.

Ruaridh has been so good this year however...

Giving a 4 year deal and probably a good wage to a 27 year old who had only 1 good year really in less of a fan of. Especially for a winger when really you can find decent wingers anywhere. I mean if anything our winter Corps last year of Ruaridh, Roko, Aled Brew and Cooper Vuna are kind of proof of that.

Assuming we are sticking to the salary cap, I'm not sure this is the wisest decision. I think the supply of wingers is greater than the demand.

That doesn't mean he's not earnt it though, he's been phenomenal.

Great news. We really have been lucky with our wingers and with RM, Roko and Cockanasiga... Nice,

The fact that he can play centre and fullback is ideal tbh
