I think Pivac will do another 2 years to be honest. You don't always get a squad who can do this. You have to remember that what comes easy(ish) to Carmarthenshire boys i.e. running rugby, is not so straightforward with for other NH teams. He has got them playing very well and can have several shots at the Pro12 and RCC. He'll move on then for sure. It would also be a perfect time for Stevo and Dwayne to take over. I think Stevo needs a couple more years to be Head Coach. I don't want him to fail and then he has to leave.

Is Pivac here with his family? Not sure how old his two boys are?

It seems as if the Blues have made an offer to Seb Davies.

Yes they are very confident that they are going to keep him but they were very confident of landing Halfpenny..
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Seems like the Blues have the backing of Walesonline judging by the number of articles recently published.  Most of them painting the Scarlets in a negative light.

Lets face it who, in their right minds & given decent alternative offers, would sign for the Blues right now. The players have seen Wilson leave due to new financial constraints & their CEO publicly state that the era of signing overseas players has come to an end. This current state of affairs comes after years of huge management turnover & a pretty dodgy record of acquisitions the latest of which sees a totally 2nd rate centre from the Aviva replace a current Welsh squad member. 

If you were a young player in demand & wanted to perform at the highest level to impress the Welsh coaches where would you put your signature. Frankly if the Scarlets are indeed interested in Seb and make him a similar offer & he decides to stay with the Blues then he is probably not the player we need i.e. intelligent.

Lets look at the Seb Davies logically and if he was a Scarlet player.

Wouldn't we be doing everything to keep him..............................YES

Would we use all the avenues available to keep him(Press)............YES

Would we remind him that we have looked after him.....................YES

So what is the difference, Tadhg & Liam was totally different and we did all we could then.

All we can do is wait until it's legal to talk to him and hope he has not made his mind up by then, if he has then we look elsewhere.

Simple really
Be careful when you pick up the stick.........IT MAY BE THE WRONG END!!!!!!!!!!

Intelligent maybe !! or honourable yes !!

Exactly the type of player any side would want, not like many who want to chase the £££££££££££

He might have grown up wanting to play for Cardiff and wants to stay with them. Guess we'll see.

The boys are in NZ. Brad is part of the team organising the Rugby League World Cup.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Does Seb Davies want to play for Blues at the moment? I think they will be in a bit of a bad patch for next 3-5yrs until their youngsters come to fruition.

Does Seb want to be part of that? Possibly being a Cardiff boy.

There's no NDC for Seb...were blues hoping to only pay 40% of his wage? Can they afford 100%?
Does Seb see his game fully develop with the Scarlets where he can form a partnership with Jake Ball and lock down behind the Welsh front row.

It's a tough decision for him. Wait and see.

He stated himself that he believes a coachs lifespan at a side is 3-5yrs. After that the players can become stale with coaches (see Wales), and coaches can easily get into a habit of picking same players etc (see Wales).




You think last season and this season the players look like they’re starting to lose interest in him?

Yup. Playing to the gallery a bit I think. They also told fans that the redevelopment was moving forward and there would be income to help them compete. 

All a bit tenuous.
