Injuries have ruined our season to date and in my opinion are behind the reason we've had a rather stop start beginning to the new season.

I've grouped the players unavailable currently into sections.

Out long term
Aaron Shingler
James Davies
Jonathan Evans
Angus O'Brian

Some of these players will be back in January / February but Angus we won't see until end of the season or start of next season. I wish him all the best in his recovery.

Missing for the next few weeks
Tom Prydie
Lewis Rawlins

Missing Friday
Johnny McNicholl
Jake Ball (possibly)

Missing Friday and potentially longer
Rhys Patchell (very worryingly Warren Gatland said today that Rhys might need a break from rugby for a spell after his two HIAs recently. George North has a break and was out of action for five months.)

Banned
Kieran Fonotia

How we need some of these players at the moment and over the next few weeks. Around 6 or 7 of these players are current in our best match day 23. Over the next few weeks we really need a dry spell from injuries, if we pick up any more then it could really affect our season and our ambitions. If Dan Jones picks up an injury in the coming weeks then all our 10s are out.

It's about average for a club to have this sort of injury/suspension profile ( I think Cassiem is missing, or is he back this week?).

What's been highly unusual is the amount of players that have also already missed at least a game or two in the first 6 or so games this season...Fox, Steff, Parkes, Asquith, Boyde, Macloed, Rob Evs, Samson, Halfpenny and probably a few others have all gone through the seemingly perpetually revolving door to the medical staff room.

I can't think of anyone who has started all games.

It’s about time the powers to be looked at the injuries. I’ve been saying for years we shouldn’t have 8 subs. Players know they only have 40/50 mins to play so go all out. Gareth Davies (WRU) joined this thinking last season. And of course with all the muscle build it’s a vastly different game

perhaps because we have reverted to kicking the ball away means we are defending for large parts of the game and taking more big hits.

Not sure If the injuries can be attributed to us kicking the ball away?
Don't think we generally kick the ball too much, in fact perhaps against Bath at home last year we didntkick it enough given the weather, would agree that we didn't kick it very well though last Saturday .

Wonder if a short term deal will come in in the backs.
With Patch potentially out for a spell, Angus out for a good few months, potentially the season, a bit thin at 10 especially during internationals.

In response to PE SA, I agree we could see an exciting signing at 10 to cover us for the short term/ season. I would love to see an old head 10, fairly big name come in and pull the strings in our back line for a while. 

Whats Stephen 'Beaver' Donald up to nowadays?
Oh that's a huge Gary Owen

As mentioned elsewhere, Owen Williams has had 3 replacement appearances for Glaws this season, displaced by Cipriani at 10 and others at 12. Might be the opportunity to bring him home, although if Eddy calls up Cips, Owen will surely get more starts at Kingsholm in November...

Yes its really been frustrating. I think you can add Rawlins & Cummins to that list. As far as ever present only Blade comes to my mind.

Cassiem is available for selection this week. This Friday, we can still field a back line of:
1/2P, Steff, Foxy, Saucie, Prydie, Dan, Cawdor, 
 (with any of Caws/Asquith/ Possibly Patch/ SHC on the bench)

And a Pack of:
Rob, Ken, Samson, Bulbring, Jake, Blade, Boyde, McLeod

With Win/Elias/Kruger/Price/Dan D on the bench.
We're still still here!

Prydie is out for another 5-6 weeks unfortunately.

I'm not sure Dan is in the European squad & Patch has already been ruled out.

Jake is also under going a late fitness test before the squad travel to Leicester.

'Always' is a very long time. You mean: 'in recent years'.

For those of us old enough and with long memories: in 1967 (I think) Wales played England at the Arms Park on a mud-bath with a gale force wind blowing towards the Westgate Street end. In the first half, with Wales playing into the wind, David Watkins kicked the ball low and managed to gain territory despite the conditions. Second half - the English kicked high, gained zero ground and lost heavily (for the era).

Happy days!
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

We are starting to look a little light in a few areas - back 3, 10 & 2nd row. This Friday I see us looking like :-

Leigh, Asquith, Foxy, Hadleigh, Steff, Dan, Cawdor
Wyn, Ken, Samson, Jake/Price, Bulbring, Kennedy, Boyde, Blade.

Ryan, Rob, Werne, Price/Helps, McLeod, SHC, Steff Hughes, Ioan.

Longer term the injury to Rhys is very concerning. I am sure the club will be following the England squad selection closely as if Cipriani is omitted then talks could commence over a loan deal for Owen Williams. His non featuring for Gloucester is apparently not down to injury so is baffling. He played pretty well at 12 for Wales in Autumn 2017 & has certainly not become a bad player since then.
