  1. Thought he was treated shabbily at the end by Glasgow really hope he has a good financial deal at Carcassonne

  2. Great for Harley ,should bring his experience to Carcassonne to the benefit of that club. I always work on the assumption any player who annoys Munster as much as Rob did cannot be all bad. Though I still feel that Glasgow might have held on to him for one more year.

  3. Great news, hope Harley enjoys his time in France. I’m sur he will prove to be a great addition to the Pro D2 Shame his new club have him identified with flag of St George rather than a Saltire.

    • Actually, i’ve phoned US Carcassonne to let them know about the flag mistake.
      It should be a great experience down there, rugby and life style.
      All the best Rob.
