  Any news on Rawlins and Condy's fitness ??


Nothing on Rawlins but at the Crys event the news on Condy wasnt great. Plays a game and the knee swells up. So he's not going to be able to put a string of games together.

Speaking of which (and a bit out of topic, but) are any of them out of contract at the end of the season?
  


Interesting point... I believe all three are out of contract at the end of this season, will be a difficult decision to make for Aled and Evans if they are happy behind Cawdor who is first choice at the moment. Also what if Cawdor decides not to renew ?

A good choice apart from a couple of things - Rhys Jones at the moment is our back up 10/kicker. I think Asquith has played 10 before but not for us. Don't think we'll see Foxy until Edinburgh as he had the biggest work load of our Lions. 


Parkes was our back and 10 for the semi and final last season and did surprisingly well, so he'll do.



Parkes/Asquith to cover fly half. Halfpenny/Patch to goal kick, and Scott/Parkes as emergency kickers.

Also, I even though he hasn't done anything wrong, I struggle to shake memories of Rhys Jones (and Riki Tipuna) during his last stint struggling and looking out of his depth.

Hard to keep them all happy but they can't do wrong with staying here. At least with having 3 we get good rotation and kept them all fighting fit. Money might be the only draw away?

My worry is Aled leaving for regular games. The situation with Webb at the O's could further complicate matters.

One of either Evans or Aled will be at the O's next year I believe. Webb will be off.

Aled leaving should be the least of our worries, surely. We have 2 good options and if the offer came in i  think it would only be natural if he believes in himself and has ambition.

I don't think that lessening the mobility like that would suit our game. Mcloud at 8 for me

Nice quotes from Foxy from today's PC:

During Scarlets training sessions in the days building up to matches, the team that acts as opposition to the side selected is affectionately known as the 'Tesco Team'.

"I wasn't even picked for the Tesco Team last week," joked Davies, who now has six Lions Test appearances to add to his 64 Wales caps.

"I didn't even make that team so I had to go and do fitness on the side with the academy boys, it was a real come down!"

Could have been worse - the Lidl team, or Costcutters!

Haven't seen the interview, but seems like there's a lot of humility there too. 

Best No 13 in world rugby having to do fitness training with the academy boys !!!!
