On the day he signed a new four-year deal to coach Wales, Warren Gatland said he believed the exodus of leading players to France will go into reverse.

"The information coming back to us from players is yes, the money's great. But everything else is a long way behind what they can get provided here in Wales in terms of medical stuff, strength and conditioning, length of season, time off in the off-season, quality of coaching and support stuff.

"So I think you'll find a lot of those players will go to France for a year or two and then make the decision to come back."

He also said that as long as players make sure that they negotiate release clauses for all Wales' playing and training duties, he is not concerned by their absences from the Welsh domestic scene.
