Post Scarlets duo McNicholl and Prydie out for the season
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/43153151

Scarlets have suffered a blow in their bid to retain their Pro14 title with the news that fullback Johnny McNicholl and wing Tom Prydie are out for the rest of the season.

Scarlets say both players were hurt in their 20-13 defeat to Leinster.

McNicholl, who was replaced after 11 minutes against Leinster, had a shoulder operation yesterday.

Prydie is due to have surgery today on an ankle injury as the duo join centre Jonathan Davies on the sidelines.

New-Zealander McNicholl has scored eight tries in 17 matches this season.

With 11 of our players in the Wales team, they are unreplaceable at that level of ability.
We will have to resort to some youngsters, possibly 18/19-year-olds.

Halfpenny will be back though I agree not the same dynamism in attack.

He's a points machine and you want someone else?

McNicholl makes his fair share of mistakes, but he certainly makes up for it.
He is an x-factor player like Steff.
Having one x-factor player in a team is great but having two is difficult for any defence to cope with.
Add to the x-factor forwards with two that could play in any backline (Cubby & Shingler) and a steady ten and an x-factor scrumhalf and you have a winning combination. :D
The trouble is that Wales has pinched 11 of them. :(

Typical Scarlet attitude, so you dont think the players want to play for Wales or have they been press ganged into it? Dont remember such nonsense when the Ospreys had 13 in the Wales team :bs:

What nonsense? We are proud to have 11 Scarlets players in the Wales team. :thefinger:
Maybe we should have more. :D
Gutted that Patchell has been dropped. :(

With so many players away with Wales, they'll miss them.

Keith, we are trying to strengthen the NWQ element in the squad recognizing the impact of 2016-17 success on national selection.
Nothing more, nothing less.

The financial impact of the 60% is vital. As Terry says, you can't have the penny and the bun... ;) :D

Also gutted that the best 7 in Wales has been left out of the Wales team.
However, we are going to need him tomorrow against Ulster.
