I’m not sure this is the best use of resources given the loss of two very good forwards in Barclay and beirne in the summer

Scarlets also rely a bit too much on Jake ball to provide muscle up front


Cummins looks OK but we need a second ball carrier....besides Ball that is..

I would not have signed Halfpenny either, but what is done is done.

Sign of a good coach, when he turns down the opportunity to recruit a guy who challenges the best in the world in his position, simply because he has no shortages of talent on the wing....

I think Pivac would be a good choice as the next Welsh Coach, but the W R U need to trim their coaching staff and his appointment to the Wales job should be shared with his duties at the P y S. Stephen Jones can step up to taking more responsibility.

For Bouch:


"Under the Rugby Services Agreement between the four Welsh regions and WRU, the home region has first chance to sign North - who has won 69 Wales caps and three for the Lions."

That's been mentioned before.

I don't believe it comes into play when the past employer has demonstrated bad faith.

Do you agree that the giants of the game who run the Scarlets now showed bad faith in the recent past re: North's career?

I'm not certain that bad faith would make a difference but good point.

North has no contract with any of the regions. He is free to chose depending on the offer. I would personally be tempted with Scarlets or the Dragons.

Yeah, the Dragons look to be solidly backed and that is good.

If North joined the Dragons they would attract more players. Certainly the Scarlets look the better team however there might be history. The Blues don't look like changing soon and the Ospreys have been better.

I believe the management team has changed a bit since then.....if money were plentiful, as it is for non performing WRU executives, we could sign him.

In what way did they show bad faith. I think your talking nonsense again Bouch.

I think a return to the the Scarlets would be the best bet for North.

Welsh rugby can go up and down from one season to another, just look at the Ospreys. Next season may see the Dragons out in front in a no horse race.
