But if you were Dan you’d probably be thinking you’d be better off at the Ospreys for game time. It’s what I would do

Dan is a different type of[player to Jac. Jac is a defensive machine in the mould of Josh; Dan is a a lightly bigger version of Cubby with superb handling skills and pace. All 3 could play together and given Dan's athleticism he could certainly do a job at lineout time as does Tipuric.

Can't say I disagree with you Stef.

Injuries havent helped Dan as when opportunities arose, he was unavailable to take them.
I guess he now sees himself as 4th choice behind Josh, Cubby and Jac. In addition hes probably thinking `Josh is injured, Cubby is with Wales and I still cant get even a bench position`. A brilliant player who needs game time. I said it weeks and weeks ago that with no welsh premiership, where on earth are all these excellent squad players meant to play rugby?? We need more `friendlies` so give these guys game time (or a proper inter region A leage)

I'm not sure I agree with you there,G.P..R..I think Jac is a good footballer,and is a great destructive player,yes,but is also a constructive force.Macleod I see as having a future at 6.Succession planning beyond Cubby and Shingler should already be moving in that direction,with Dan and Jac competing for the open-side berth.Fitting Cassiem in at 6 has clouded the issue,and,I'd argue,hasn't worked-Kennedy has shown he's a more natural option there.Had Kennedy been preferred at 6,Dan could have been used on the bench.

If we looking to offload flankers surely it should be Cubby that goes as much as he has been great for us he is not player he was and players like Dan and Jac are our future. 
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

Even if we did that, & I'm not advocating we do, do you think Dan would still be happy being 3rd choice behind Josh & Jac?

I do not mean to downplay Jac's creative ability which is clear for everyone to see from that disallowed try but when comparing their strengths I see Dan as the more constructive. He is certainly a lot quicker. For me Kennedy is the natural Shingler replacement rather than Casseim.

We don't do so well with highly regarded players leaving.

It's a feature of our game unfortunately.

I guess it is a compliment of our academy & the way we bring players through.

One thing for sure,if Dan leaves we are left with Jac,Josh and Kennedy on the right side of 30.In addition,Blade,Cubby and Shingler-all getting on and beset by injury/availability issues.

Tough decision, but I agree. Ditto for Shingler, really (ducks for cover)
