So limited to no posting on here; similar on NotPR. Are we done or just waiting until the weekend for Welsh regional rugby to kick off?

That would be a blow, but he sensibly realizes he is #4 at best for Wales with some young uns coming on board soon enough.

Another page completed. Another rumour regarding 1 of top players. What more do you want on Monday.

There’s no “I” in ‘Welsh rugby thread’.

Shame if Sam goes (not for his bank balance, obvs), I wanted to see more of him at the Dragalactico’s.

How are the derbies working this weekend now then regarding player movement? I.e, will Cory Hill turn out for Cardiff or Newport?

It was decided a couple of months ago that as contracts end in June, despite it still being 'last season', players will now be legally obliged to play for their new region.

How do you see the teams lining up this weekend? Full hog or half and half?

Mighty bloos v the moons, I'd go for a mixture, try out some of the younger players see how they go against the best side in Wales. There's no point going in with a 'strongest' side for us, there's nothing on the game so use it to take a look at players.

One of the Dragons players has tested positive for Covid.

That’ll probably be enough to postpone the game.

It’s Jaw. Bit of espionage by the Blouses? Have one on their own infiltrate Dave Parade and give our boys a deadly virus.

Poor form.

Youd imagine after being forced to take a 25% pay cut and no doubt earning far less than him, Roberts is far from flavour of the month in their squad

Looks like Foxy and Liam Williams are out of this weekends game against Cardiff, it must be about 3 years since I've seen a full strength Scarlets team.

Poor form.

Dragons are only looking for an out because the Ospreys can field their strongest team this season. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
AWJ making his FIRST appearance this season and Tips making only his fourth plus injured players all positions available (apart from Scott Williams and Keelan Giles)

If you say so...

How have the ospreys and dragons had 6 months off, and still managed to put out teams of pure gash

I was honestly expecting a much closer game than that. It was only at the end (when the Turks knew they had the game one) that the Blues seemed to have room to play and they F***ed it up then.
Just hope the Ospreys show more urgency tomorrow.
