Dan will probably leave and I will blame nobody for that. He will flourish at the Ospreys & will push Jac Morgan all the way for a senior call up. 
Agree. If he is to leave all the best... But I do see in the future Jac Morgan, Dan Davis and Josh Macleod lining up together. All with the ability to play 6,7,8.

Dan strikes me as a 6 in the making, however there is a part of me wondering if the rumours have surfaced because Shingler is now on the comeback trail as previously it was thought he wouldn't be back at all...

Don't see Dan as a 6 at all. He is, for me, an out and out 7 with pace and hands. Of all our 7's currently I think Josh could be the best 6 but even he is not in the Aaron, Blade or Kennedy mould. I still see Josh as a real effective 8 along the lines of Navidi.

Don’t see either Jac or Dan as a 6 personally. Would love for Dan to stay however I wouldn’t blame anyone if he did leave. I wonder if loaning him to the Ospreys could be an option, would strengthen their options for the season while allowing us to keep him on our books in case something changes next season.

Dan certainly an out and out 7,but what's he like at the break-down?Short-term,Cubby -in spite of being nowhere near his best-would still probably get the nod for his ability in that area?That's where I would have liked to see more of Dan.

With Cubby seemingly unsuited to International rugby, anyone think he might take a year or two out away from us & maybe play elsewhere...as in abroad?

Quite possibly. If you are under 60 caps and not in the Wales squad the salary guidance is relatively low at a time where English and French team’s interest would spike ( based on no international call up conflicts).
I expect a notable amount of guys will be eyeing this.

He does seem the type who would relish a year or 2 abroad & would go well.

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.
 Agree with you both but wouldn’t it be better to loan these players out rather than just let them go? I realise we have depth there but we quite often go down to 3rd string in the season. I suppose if he’s out of contract it’s his choice.

Article yesterday in the South Wales Argus about the Drags having all their contracts sorted .
Wonder how this is possible?
If it bleeds we can can kill it
