Pivac amazes me, he must have someone scouting for him in Aus.

Ed Kennedy is as they say a big unit ..  a top schoolboy and Wallabies U20's rep 2014, he has been at one of the top Sydney clubs Randwick for the last 2 years as second row and blind side ...Randwick for those who don't know is arguably  the most successful club sides in Aus. When you look at more recent  past players and current...Campese, Ella twins , Poidevin, Kearns, Gregan  and Cheika, Beale and of course Eddie Jones who is said to be coaching somewhere ....
 
In 2017 Ed  played 15 games and scored 5 trys for the 'Wicks …no a bad nose for the tryline 

Photo ...linky below ...scroll through alphabetical order ..its 2015 but he is in a scrum cap

FYI according to the Wicks web site he wont play any more games this year and is off to Llanelli .. probably for a big pre season with the coaching staff at PYS 

see what I can do to find out more on weekend when Waratahs play Highlanders …

My thoughts on Wells...he  is going to get a Wallaby call up for the Irish 3 test series that has stopped him joining us 





I was there ...one Tuesday when the All Blacks came (and lost)

Giant lock Matthew Davies will be taking up a full-time contract with the Scarlets. 

“I love being at Neath, who gave me a chance after the Ospreys lost interest.”

We could do with a few giants!

Kennedy looks like a lean loose forward in the Shingler mould.

Hopefully he's more fresh fruit than rotting vegetable as well.

Not on the Scarlets site - is Davies expected to turn out for the Scarlets next season? I suspect he's more of a project player who'll be with Llanelli or another feeder club... welcome, anyway, and hope Matthew can step up to the big time!
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

You have to salute the club/management. They are building a larger squad with greater depth of quality players - serious progress being made. I imagine both Kennedy and Matthew Davies are seen as medium/long term project players. O'Brien will be challenging Dan for the bench spot from day 1. 

We all remember how the last project player turned out - an International and Lion in the making!!!! Kennedy has some age grade pedigree I see so he may well blossom within the PYS environment. Welcome to all 3.
