Had a small speculative punt at fancy prices on three of tonight's games:

Dragons to beat Blues - 6.2
Zebre to beat Edinburgh - 12.5
Connacht to beat Ulster - 6.0

Cheetahs v Glasgow - the prices are too skinny and it seems too close to call - I am erring towards Cheetahs at home though, playing out of their skin.

Not such a forlorn hope as it first seems as any winner from the three (Zebre would be tidy) will put me nicely in profit.

Now watch all three go down the pan !!!!

Cheetahs will be very difficult to beat at home. If you got good odds on them winning, you're onto a winner. Can't see Glasgow doing much.

Rhys Webb: Wales and Ospreys scrum-half to leave Ospreys for Toulon

First Biggar, now Webb. Not good reading for Ospreys.


Been on the cards for weeks and who can blame him ? Ospreys seem to have lost the plot and it would be no surprise to hear of others following if/when they are out of contract.


Not many players of worth left..

The coaching may not be all that, but you've seen them play, they couldn't give a *fupp* when in the Ospreys shirt, so it could be argued that there was not a lot of worth there to start with.

Personally I think Webb can look good individually whilst making absolutely no positive contribution to a team, it's the Rhys Webb show

The saddest thing is I don't think any of his understudies are up to it and that means we'll miss him


Will the Welsh set up miss him? It is rumoured here that he has agreed to forego Welsh release when he move end of Season and that would include W Cup squad.

This section of an article announcing the xfer says that it looks like he has foregone international selection

Il semblerait que Rhys Webb ait décidé de mettre un terme à sa carrière internationale afin de relever ce nouveau défi au RCT. Le club varois devrait officialiser dans la foulée la signature de l'international gallois qui avec tapé dans l'œil du nouveau manager Fabien Galthié. La durée du contrat devrait être de trois ans.

Per Google Translate:

It appears that Rhys Webb has decided to end its international career in order to meet this new challenge to the RCT. The club Varois should formalize in the stride the signature of the Welsh international who typed in the eye of the new manager Fabien Galthié. The duration of the contract should be three years.

Betfair...but remember your stake is included in the odds so 6.2 is actually a shade over 5/1 plus there's a 5% deduction on winnings - not that it bothers me very often. But, generally speaking, you'll always find better odds on BF then you'd get with the traditional bookies.

Glasgow with a BP win. 6 out of 6 with 4 try bonuses so far and we've not really been at full strength yet or had an 80 minute performance.

Not sure why you wrote them off for this game?

I did take into account stake, your odds were 6.2 whilst best of Bookie list was 5.5
which, of course, doesn't matter any more :(

Ah.
The whole travel, altitude and killer lions thing. Glasgow did very well.

It's difficult as wales don't produce the volume of players to discard even average foreign imports

I admit someone like Leon brown is benefitting from playing

But if you didn't pick pretorious, who is a 5/10 player, why would you pick a Welshman who is currently worse and will never be any better. A further issue is the quality of the NWQ players dragons can attract. Pivac has said scarlets are now more attractive to a higher quality player but who would want to join the dragons

If the Dragons get a couple more players than usual picked in the Wales squad then that'll make them more attractive.

Regarding the scrum-half issue, it's the Dragons' weakest area at the moment - Knoyle is crap (and injured anyway), Charlie Davies very average and the rest are kids; Pretorius is the best of a bad bunch and he's 33 so they should be lining up a replacement.

Jonathan Evans (Scarlets), Aled Davies (Scarlets) and Rhodri Williams (Bristol) are all out of contract at the end of this year and all are good enough to be playing PRO14 week-in-week-out. Assuming the Scarlets hold onto one of them as the backup to Gareth Davies and the Ospreys sign another to replace Rhys Webb (they've been linked with Aled Davies), the Dragons should definitely want to sign the third and should be able to promise him that he'll be 1st choice. Jonathan Evans would be best as he's a Gwent lad, but I'd be happy with any of them.
