Jesus..Dan seems to be the Priestland for taking all the stick..Really hard to see how it’s been his fault for losing the last 2

I think it's more the fact he doesn't get the back line purring in the same way that Patch or AOB does.
To be honest I sort of feel like our general strategy so far under Delaney has changed to a bit more forward centric approach?

As for Cassiem’s continued exclusion from the 23...I really am lost for words.
I'm hearing that Patch hasn't really trained much over the last 2 weeks,so maybe that has a bearing on selection...im expecting him to play 30/35 mins this week after his 15 last week..He could really do with a run with us and find his fitness and game levels before going with Wales..

Totally agree

I’ll be disappointed if he leaves but isn’t this the last year of his deal. If i was scarlets management i’d get him an extension

the last thing we need need now is a coach with an agenda on one of our best players like pivac with steff who was the best winger in wales at the time,cassiem was outstanding last year.

Yep I’m gutted that waste of space Jonny Williams has joined us -  and immediately into the Welsh squad.What idiot instigated that appointment then ? 🤨

All coaches have their “like” players. That’s fine. Steff is elusive  in the immediate contest but lacks real pace. He was surprisingly caught the other week when I expected him to score.  His defence has definitely improved mind .

Nice to see some honest,balanced appraisals.Sometimes criticisms are avoided,flaws tolerated,and failings ignored.

Can’t see how anyone would want Patchell starting yet, he looked totally out of his depth last week when he came on. Bench the right call for me but I think we should have tried using aob before now at 10 for some game time. Would be very disappointing if cassiem left was great for us last year and loved being here

Cass would be a huge loss if he goes he looked like he was loving playing for us last season and was in great form . Even though he will get games when the international's are away. 

Its no good for his morale to leave him out of these match day squads with no chance to prove himself even off the bench . Bad man management In my opinion.

I cannot wait to see cass and kala 6 and 8 together

I expect Cass to play out of his skin when he gets the chances during the International window, and it will make it impossible not to be selected going forward.
Sadly when you have a lot of quality operators in the back row, there will always be some disappointment, bit that competition for places can only drive individuals on !

It's odd isn't it... Cassiem gone from public enemy number one on here to a conspirecy theory over his non selection.
We are fortunate to have such depth in tbe back row. Balancing act puts cassiem out of the frame on bench in my opinion. 
Blade, Macleod, Kalamafoni  play 8.
Blade, Macleod play 6.
Macleod plays 7. 

Bench cover common sense is a player that plays 7 isn't it? Cubby, Jac Morgan, or Dan Davis.

The next 6 fixtures after this one are in the international window, and I fully expect that there is a different selection strategy already decided.

We will see much more of Gus, Costellow, Cassiem, Conbeer, Dan Davies etc. 
We're still still here!

It's interesting to me (and I'm only interested in actual well-considered rugby debate, not [beep]ging players off) that no-one responded to my comment about Kalamafoni's carrying ability (as displayed so far). A post I read on a different rugby site always stuck with me... that he had the most carries in the premiership but didn't make many metres. I'm sorry, I can't remember the source. He's got a great appetite for it, but it doesn't seem to translate into busting tackles IMHO. I haven't seen him get any more yards on average than Cassiem, and the latter has the advantage of being more impressive in open field in my opinion. 

I think Kalamafoni is a really good player don't get me wrong, and yes I'm in the Cassiem camp (I never made him public enemy no1 for me, I always thought you could see the effort and ability he had but it never quite clicked - turns out a broken bone was something to do with that...) just would like some more rotation based on pitch/weather. 

It's interesting to see teams like Bristol bench Sinckler today for a semi-final - that's strength in depth, but also shows that to get that depth you have to rotate. I guess the trick is to rotate enough to build depth but not too much to wreck team growth and momentum.

Its similar with Leinster, the best sides have such strength in depth and rotation becomes a must, we have a strong squad, some positions more than others and good players are always going to sit out certain games. I do hope we see more of Cass soon though, the question is do the coaches see him as a possible 6 or is it a shootout between him and Sione for number 8?

Looking at Glasgow tomorrow, all ready a big game, and the last before 13, 14, 15 probably away for the next couple of months. 2 good sides on paper. Scarlets have a pretty decent record against Glasgow at Scotstoun, winning 5 out of the last 6 including that semi final in 2018, lets hope that can continue!!
