Cardiff Blues have re-signed prop Gethin Jenkins from Toulon in a deal which sees the British Lion cutting his French deal short by a year. Jenkins will remain with the French based outfit until the end of the season and will then rejoin his former club.
In all honesty, the lack of game time since Jenkins headed to France has rendered the Welsh International a shadow of his former self. Only the loyalty of the Welsh management has saved him from being replaced as a starter by Paul James who should probably have been given a shot at a starting berth by now!
The move (of Jenkins) will buck the recent trend of Welsh stars plying their trade over the channel and Welsh fans will hope this is the first of many.
