A Young/Peel ticket is pretty exciting in principal …I just really hope they asked for (and got) a clear road map of how the funding will be made available to re-build what is a pretty aging and under delivering team in some areas. Harsh I know...but with Arhip, Dacey, Turnbull, Lloyd W, Lee-Lo, Halaholo, Gill and others in their thirties years (but still very much 1st choice 23 players), it's going to take some money.

They can build a decent squad quite quickly around the likes of Adams, Amos, Hill, Botham, Lewis-Hughes, Lane and hopefully Ellis Jenks etc...but there's a paucity of front 5 options of course...no disrespect meant but if you have the likes of Gill, Scott Andrews and guys like Tovey as your first choice subs you can get exposed.

I think Wales rugby needs a strong Blues component mind.



from 8-30 saturday i hope.Big smile

Make that 10.00 Nigel - don't want any 2nd half comebacks.LOL

I would have no objection to the Blues going full stand alone and just saying we are  a Cardiff Region and we have a Cardiff fanbase and we are going to work to that crowd and solely that crowd
 
However if then any of the valley regions that make up their region and the development programme feel they want to jump ship and form part of another region that should be allowed to happen to.
 
It maybe best for all concerned in the long run tbh
 
Wasps have kicked on big time since Young left that would concern me if I was a blues fan, but he is a step up from Mulvihill
