Post Wasps cut the squad
Article quoting Dai on having to cut the squad, impact not only on Wasps potential strength but also, importantly, the issue os Player exertion and related concerns.

40 about the same as TOP14 squads (they have limits on Pro contract squad limits that mean a usual operating limit of about 40).

They also have a little more in salary cap by todays exchange rates and special extras based on amount of international release.

Looks like the Aviva will be the tinderbox for both Club and Player Union contention with Union ?

Interesting that there's little mention on the less players more exertion issue.

This relates on other issue

Wasps struggling at home against Bath, 9-9 half time. Lot of empty seats.

Underhill is quite something...that Bath back row will trouble the Scarlets

Bath power too much for Wasps, who look found out.

Wasps 9-25 Bath

Scarlets will have to improve to beat this team

Rather like the Scarlets albeit somewhat wealthier and with more strength-in-depth, Wasps play beautiful rugby but can be decidedly vulnerable up front.

Bizarre comment when you consider 4 of the starting Wales front 5 wear a Scarlet jersey :scratch:

Which just shows how badly Wales are doing for props atm. (Other positions, such as back row and wing, are somewhat better-stocked).
