Comrade Gatland will not tolerate defectors

Since the days of the genteel Joe Stalin, the Soviet borders were
closed to prevent their finest leaving. Warren Gatland likes that idea
and is imposing it upon Wales – or their rugby players at least.  During the Cold War years, it was seen as a great coup for the either side if they nicked somebody from the other lot; that mincing ballet-fiend  cum actor Mikhail Baryshnikov came over from the USSR amid much publicity.  We have seen something similar this week with Dwayne Peel going to Sale, only I hope Peel will not subsequently turn up in dreadful films, or as a love interest in a long-running female comedy-drama.
