A lot of Twitter gossip that Dan is off to the dark side. Be a shame to lose a great prospect.

This will always happen when we have such depth at 7, we have him, Cubby, Josh, Jac.

have we given him a chance to see how he has progressed? cubbys best days are behind him and age is not on his side,dan was outstanding last year with great performances against top sides.

Have to agree we haven't, I hope we do soon. I'd like to see him on the bench or starting against Ulster & Leinster but that much depends on how we go in terms of Casseim at 6 or on the bench.

It is the biggest problem with having such depth - good ambitious professionals want to play. In fairness to Casseim he has seen his position taken by Sione with young Carwyn coming over the horizon. He may have a shout at 6 but Kennedy is challenging hard and Aaron is on his way back. It would make sense for us financially to allow him to leave for games. 

However it is crazy to allow Dan to leave. He is our future but I can see he won't be happy with where he finds himself. Tough job for the coaches I have to admit especially when there are no A games.

Surely there can't be truth in that, if there is one player who lives & breathes Scarlets at the moment it is him. Even when he isn't in the matchday 23 he is engaging with supporters on Instagram getting them sending pictures of how they'll be watching the match.

Again true, though he could find himself behind Jac in terms of selection. But I agree with no rugby below the pro 14 he is in effect kicking his feet waiting. If he has his mind set on leaving so he can get regular rugby then sadly there isn't much the coaching staff can do.

agree,but the coaches didn't seem to in the early games.

No its true. Dan is a very intelligent & ambitious young man. Seeing Botham being called up to the squad will not have helped his demeanour. In all honesty, losing my Scarlets hat, a move to the Ospreys would probably see him as No 2 to Tips so he will see plenty of gametime which for him at this point in his career is paramount.

Aye but he has come back with a bang.

Hopefully this is all twitter talk & Dan will be given a good run soon.

He reminds me a lot in terms of his athletism to Shingler, is there a chance we could look at him as a 6 long term?

 We need to keep Dan at all costs he his 22 years of age,I saw him and Josh MacLeod a couple years back in Paris against Racing , they were both brilliant .

   If we are looking at off loading players ?? we need to ntake there age and injury record into account.

    When the International call will come with regards Jac Morgan, we will rarely see him with the structure of the season as it is .
