Thank you. Shouldn’t have gone to the Drqgons match but there you are. Scarlets came before my health on that occasion.   No work = no pay so fighting to be back tomorrow

give him a brain cell?

Ken was terrific yesterday, hes always been a greta ball carrier, who knows maybe he will stay at 8 for a while , until some of the others return. I didnt read all the previous posts criticizing him , though I think some criticism was fair enough, such as that about turning down easy kicks at goal in tight games and he had been spilling ball more than usual in some games. But if anyone questioned his commitment then that is crazy. The way he has reacted to the criticism is superb, hes more motivated than ever. Hes a great player,  probably the best scarlet hooker I can recall, always gives massive commitment to everything and an all time scarlet legend.

Ken Owens and Superman had a fight and the loser had to wear their pants outside their trousers.
That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.

When he was in school Ken Owens told a boy to stop messing around playing football and just “pick it up and run with it”.
That boy was William Webb Ellis.

True story which makes the sheriff approx 180 odd years old and still competing at the highest level Clap

I think the most pertinent point is that he is definitely the best 8 that we have, based on performances this year. I’d much rather Ken at 8 and Elias at 2 than Ken at 2 and Uzair at 8 for example. Blade to 6 when he comes back and when Shingler comes back, Blade to the row alongside Ball.

Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi lyrics contained a good line on Ken.

It can be applied to many top players.

“You don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone”.

When Ken retires, hopefully not for many years to come, the little gripes will be forgotten and the bigger picture can be seen and a gem of a guy and player fully valued.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

  To early to judge Casseim he was playing with a shoulder injury, which was then diagnosed as a cracked shoulder blade I have no doubt he will come good !

Agree completely.

He’s a guy with great values; a serious player, person and talent. Let’s do all we can to make him feel welcome and he will respond hugely, imo.
