No money worries as yet.
Yep some people are getting ridiculous on here. Off the field Scarlets are in a better position than Ospreys

TBF you are more in the know that 99% of us so it may be easier for you not to over react.

All very well to say that and you being a position to know but if the rumours are true that we are swapping Jac Morgan. And tex for King and Peers that certainly shopping in the middle aisle of Lidl rather than Harrods. Us mere mortals will draw our own conclusions whether they right or wrong.

Steff this week we had the perfect storm - a poor defeat followed by further news of a player leaving along with an announcement of a signing by our nearest and dearest. Things will settle down when we get some good news.LOL
Sorry that rich from someone who after less than half a season wants the coaches sacked and Stef Hughes our of team at any cost.

Not really rich is it. Both very much center stage really.

The Blues have dismissed their coach on the same win ratio, and as soon as Foxy can play and take the captaincy Steff loses his place.

The Blues coach had been in post a bit longer sorry If you think half a season, where there are terrible restrictions on team, is long enough then fair enough. As for Stef Hughes he takes more stick on here, unfairly in my opinion, than any other player 
As I say that’s my opinion And people’s opinions is Surely what Scarlet Fever is all about.

Of course Why we are all entitled to our opinion. However you do have a duty to try to summarise other posters fairly. I have called for changes in the coaching group - in particular our attack coaches who have been post for 18 months not half a season as you state. In addition I rate Steff Hughes and have said so many times however my criticism is playing both Steff & Dan together which restricts our attack as both are short of pace. No running threat from 10/12 puts more pressure on the outside backs as defences can drift. Look at the differences Jarrod made last Saturday. Dan with Johnny or Asquith, Steff with Angus or Costelow is what I have been asking for. 

Of course if you read all my posts on the topic my main worry is the attacking philosophy in general regardless of personnel. Look it would be a boring world if we all agreed all the time so onwards & upwards I say.

Sorry - what I meant was, in terms of our planning for next season. We're not planning swinging cuts. We will have a very good and very expensive squad. Certainly top half of the P14 in terms of resources and on a par with many English sides.

I don't like the optics of signing either of the Ospreys' locks, but I'm sure we're in the market for some decent grunt to replace Tex and Ball
We're still still here!

We made a big statement 2yrs ago by signing both lousi and tex when other clubs with bigger budgets showed interest. I would be devasteted if we signed one of those osprey players, let alone both ad replacements for jake and tex. King is a has-been and has not featured for the ospreys for a while and peers was a squad player at best. Id rsther invedt in morgan jones and jac price before spending money on them

Tex was a project though wasnt he... With barely a pro game under his belt. So wouldn't class him as a signal of intent type signing.

Sam Lousi on the other hand, we need another of his stature to replace what's going out. Ideally someone who will be around all season long. With Ball, Tex, Jac Morgan, possibly Cassiem, Kruger, leaving--some big wages there... Hopefully a lumper of a NWQ lock on way in as well as the rumoured WGJ.

A glance at the Brive squad reveals a number of fellow Fijians out there already.

Good luck to Tex.
