  Let's hope we will see a more complete performance today and a win to boot!

You can't take much for granted in life at all these days,but one thing is certain:whatever our misgivings,whatever our criticisms,we all want to see the Scarlets win....so get out and play this Glasgow bunch off the park

Totally agree with you. Patchell will get a chance today but to drop Dan for him would not be fair on Dan .

I think the "Dan seems to be the Priestland for taking all the stick" is hyperbole. 

There seems to be two discussions going on... in one people say unfair and unqualified things about players they don't like (Dan, Steff Hughes etc.) ... and in the other, those of us who suggest alternatives to playing these players acknowledge their strengths but then offer clear and fair reasons as to why we would prefer to see different selections. 

Please don't conflate the two sides!

For me, starting players like AoB, Costelow, Asquith, Cassiem, Morgan, particularly on an artificial pitch, over their more pragmatic alternatives, is indicative of the style of play I would like us to work towards. For me, we need AoB or Costelow to be a great back-up to Patchell in the fluid, attacking, running style of rugby I hope we play. Players like Dan will then come into their own during different conditions. 

But these are my preferences and clearly not the coach's as the moment. But what is a forum for if not to discuss our own thoughts and preferences? I just think we can do that without disrespecting players or coaches.

Yes. Good post that.

I have a completely subjective view that Asquith will be the last taxi off the rank under the current coaches. He was on the bench for the Blues and Drags game and not been seen since. Tyler is perhaps more odd. If we wasn't brought in to be the high pedigree 13 to cover Foxy then I'm lost as to the point of him. Then again, what do I know.

Steff Hughes is the epitome of an elite level WQ regional player with a really low error count and solid skill set. He's not going to run through or around players too often, and that's the point that triggers debate on selection.

Asquith and Tyler have more about them to excite supporters for sure.

Exactly.... I'm a risk/reward person rather than risk averse person. Hence my views on selection!

I was thinking during the week how our greatest rugby was played sometimes with Dan at 10 and Patchell 15.

I would like to see that again. 

The Scarlet way is nothing without an attacking threat from 15.

As good as HP is, he doesnt offer that attacking threat from deep.  Seriously limiting us.

One of our most exciting games last season was against Bayonne with AoB at OH and Baldwin in the centre. That didn't happen very often.

Leigh has been good in go forward mode in the games he’s played and not static at all .

He would be the first name on my team sheet every game. He's worth his weight in gold.

He won't be fully appreciated until he isn't there.
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

he is a great goal kicker great defensive 15 but poor im attack. First name on team sheet? When  patchell is fit at 10 and liam and jonny mac are fit i wouldn’t even have halfpenny in the team tbh, just my view though i think delaney thinks in a similar way to you regarding halfpenny
