Well I can’t see us losing any international players we want to keep. According to Twitter the Ospreys are basically broke, and Cardiff will be struggling next year financially. The WRU have told Dragons not to expect a bigger budget. It’s a bit of a mess out there.
We're still still here!

Snyman is on the market and is attracting interest from some big clubs, Sam Moore recently signed a new 4 year contract while Young has 2 seasons left on his Wasps deal

Can see a fair bit of recruitment being done for next season:
RG Snyman, Sam Lousi, Ben Lam, Sam Davies, Owen Williams, Josh Adams SERIOSLY boost the quality in our squad.
 
With Cardiff Blues reportedly looking at Josh Adams/Steffan Evans- pretty sure Owen Lane is out of contract...would not be a bad option at all. But I cant see him leaving Cardiff.

Not sure if Werner Kruger is staying - I'd like to think he is, but if not, we would need a very good signing to replace him. Not sure who's about.

Retention is also key.

Ideally, we need to recruit quality that will not be part of the world cup to really get our European campaign underway.

As it stands, Sam Davies, Owen Williams, Sam Lousi, Ben Lam would give us a massive boost for that.

I think Sam Davies can only play one type of game revolving around kicking, and although there are times when I don't think the Scarlets kick well or don't do enough kicking, I wouldn't want to see us play Ospreys style, relying on forward power and kicking for position while we wait for the opposition to make mistakes.  
Now, Owen Williams or Rhys Priestland I'd love to see backing up Patch, but they would probably see playing second fiddle as a backward move.
 I think we  made the right sort of signing in Angus O'Brien- a promising youngster who had fallen out with the Drags coaches and wanting a new start. Unfortunately he had a couple of poor games before he really had a chance to settle, and then a long injury. Who knows, he may yet come good.

Fair comment.

Sam is a classy kicking 10, but doesn't really fit in with the Scarlet's style - in any case, we already have Dan Jones, whose kicking game is top class and who IMHO is fine as back up to Patch. Why look elsewhere?
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

What you seem to not like about Sam Davies is a game plan a team uses. Look at Fonotia for example. Sam Davies IMO can play the game we want to play. He has pace, can attack, can slot back to 15. Definitely should be looked at IMO.
As for Owen Williams, IMO he would come in as 12. Gatland had that plan for him. Seems to have been moved there at Leicester as well before his move to Gloucester. I'd look at the possibility of signing both if I'm honest. If we can have a backline of:
9. SHC/Hardy 10. Dan/Sam 11. Lam type signing 12. Owen 13. Fonotia 14. Prydie/Conbeer/Lewis
15. McNicholl - I am sure we can start Europe with an explosion next season.

We need depth.
Next season the world cup is on. We wont have Patch until Christmas.

For me Kruger needs to be cuddled and signed worth his immense weight in gold

I think Owen Williams could be bought in as a creative centre. Also it's worth noting that Hadleigh Parkes, Jonathan Davies and Kieran Fonotia are all now 30. 

Owen is younger and I think he'd make a great signing. 

Are we definitely after RG Snyman, Ben Lam and Sam Lousi?

Add coaching staff to the list.
Only one team plays in red. (Sorry, Scarlet)
