I agree. I personally would say he may be tempted to go just to have a taste of rugby elsewhere. Hope I'm wrong.

He would arguably be a better signing for an English/French club than Warburton/Tipuric.

Yes I think it's 50/50 in terms of keeping him. That's obviously just a guess on my part though

Don't think Barclay will go. He's an adopted Welshman like Easterby. Stay with us until he retires.

Barclay has stated previously that he wants his kids educated in Scotland so I can see him going after next season with hopefully Moriarty coming down to replace.

He's an international class player who can't get capped no matter how well he plays with his lack of Wales call ups making him more attractive to French and English clubs than a large amount of Wales squad players. He's achieved a hell of a lot at Scarlets so he may look for a new a challenge where he can earn more money. I don't think he's nailed on to stay as he will undoubtedly be the subject of a lot of big money offers.


I agree with this. I think he'll go on his travels for a season or two then come back. Hope he doesn't mind. Interesting that Tadgh denied all knowledge of an interest from Ireland.

I would still be shocked if Cubby leaves. Hes always wanted to play for the scarlets and is now living his dream. Dont forget hes only really been with us for a short time and has plenty more to give. Not every player is chasing the buck, some are happy where they are as long as we give him a competitive deal.

We also treated him shoddily through age grade. Swings and roundabouts.

Not doubting what you say, but I'm sure someone on here, if not JB himself has said that he needs members of the squad to translate what his kids say as they are educated in a Welsh language junior school.

Does you think that he still carries that grudge Wil ?

I understood that it was Easterby that didn't rate him. Simon's gone, Cubby's had his chance and he's flourished.

Have you?
OK. Didn't realize. Not sure why. One of those rare guys that was capped at age grade without a region/academy deal.

I'm just saying the guy didn't have his region behind him at a time when he should have done...he could easily have never made it as a pro player.

But then the same region, under a new regime, gave him a call and gave him his chance...and its turned in to a fantastic bit of business all round.

I actually think like most - that he's v grateful for that second chance and a fair deal would see him stay, but I also think he's going to get a few big offers from across Offa's dyke...simply because of his ability, stats, and that he is/has been over-looked by Wales...and that then brings in to question the playing budget we have....which is a perpetual challenge as we all know.

The higher end cost players for us are the one's without an NDC ( like Scott, Aaron, Patch, Cawdor etc) or guys like Barclay being a Scot. I think these are likely to be the challenges, and understandably so, the club has been great to/for all of them, but the budget is the budget at the end of the day ,and it can only stretch so far.

Cubs is a 'works to live' sort of guy mate ... can't imagine he carries a grudge about anything in life tbh.
