The changes to the Welsh Rugby Union’s (WRU) selection policy has led to Warren Gatland revealing Ross Moriarty could be returning to Wales next summer.
Moriarty will not be eligible to play for Wales if he remains outside of Wales at the end of his current contact and therefore could join Dragons.
Wayne Pivac has revealed that Moriarty is a target for the Scarlets and in a press conference, Wales boss Gatland was asked whether the Gloucester man could join the Dragons.
Gatland said: “It’s been difficult in the past.
“But there’s so much positivity coming out of the environment.
Wayne Pivac has revealed that Moriarty is a target for the Scarlets and in a press conference Wales boss Warren Gatland was asked whether the Gloucester man could join the Dragons.
The Dragons are now owned by the WRU and the move would provide a way for Moriarty to continue to play for Wales.
Gatland added: “You look at Piutau leaving Ulster for supposedly a million quid. That’s a life-changing sum. Look at the money in France.
“The conversations I had with Rhys Webb and Dan Biggar was that this is life-changing.
“Dan loves playing for Wales but he felt that it was best for where he was, his age. And that’s why we try and find the right number (of caps).
“We don’t at the moment. We thought 60 was a reasonable number.
“I strongly felt that if a player had 30/40 caps, he could see himself getting 60 caps. Any higher than that and it may become a questionable goal.”
