James Hook, one of the most gifted backs of his generation and certainly the most talented player to be marginalised by Wales in recent memory, could be lost to international rugby for good if his employers, the French club Perpignan, are relegated next month. Reports on the far side of the water are linking the multi-tasking 28-year-old from Port Talbot – he can play at outside-half, full-back and in both centre positions – with a move to Japan if the worst happens in the final round of Top 14 matches on 6 May.

They cannot afford to stay off it for much longer. Victory over the Exiles is a minimum requirement if Jim Mallinder’s charges are to nail down a home Premiership semi-final.
