Can't tell much from a short clip, but a big lad with good hands and a turn of pace.

I'm afraid neither of our 2 new locks are anywhere  near being included in the Western Mule list of "Who's making a big impression in PRO14?" and of the 10 named, the Scarlets contribution is just pathetic little Jake Ball at 9 !!
This bit of inspired rugby writing/ investigative journalism by Anthony Woolford is not, of course, comparing talent or impact but players weights and is dominated by the Dragons and Blues. 
Still it's nice to see the Dragons come out on top of something

This is the article:


I suspect the message here is that the Scarlets coaches look for other attributes - pace, a rugby brain, a good skill set, the ability to fill in gaps during the 6N etc., as well as character - the 'due diligence' we've discussed recently.

It takes a lot more than just bulk to make an effective rugby player, and our coaches are well aware of that.

But the title of the article, where Jake is at 9 is based on weight.... there was indeed another article which said which of the new signings would make an impact but I can't seem to find it.

A fact that is borne out by the knowledge that if selecting a Lions team to play this Saturday the two locks would probably be Itoje & James Ryan neither of whom could be called bulky.

I hope no-one is taking my post at face value as it was meant with a huge dollop of sarcasm. The clue was in the  "inspired investigative journalism" part, which any reasonable 7 year old could manage by clicking on the players' pen pictures in the official web-sites of their previous teams.

Came through loud & clear Ffidel. It was the use of the word 'journalism' in relation to a Wales Online article that gave it away for me.

I thought I read Jake had slimmed down after last season and felt better playing at a lower weight before he got injured?

Apart from being one of the best US punk bands, ‘Ed Kennedy's Welsh-qualified, too!

Never even heard of him tbh...just really like the concept of taking promising talent as project players from the Prem.

If the WRU get it right the Prem should be challenging the ITM Cup etc for talent...

No problem - I'm sure we all realised you were joking about that! It still seemed worth a comment or two, though (the article, that is).
