Ireland international Tommy Bowe has opened talks with The Ospreys about an extension to his contract.
"I've been putting it off for quite a while, but I'm starting to get back into negotiations," admitted Bowe.
"It's not something I particularly enjoy. I prefer to get on with playing. It's a case of leaving people to sort it out and then making a decision whenever I have to."
In other words, there is a tug-of-love brewing between the Welsh club and the IRFU over getting Bowe back to Ireland to prepare for the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand.
