Richard Whifin, Dane Blacker, Alex Jeffries, couple more signings, and arent there a few more renewals to do?
Samson? Jake Ball? or are retention announcements complete?
 
tbh blacker and Jeffries are hardly going to shift many season tickets are they?
 
4th choice tight head  and 4th choice scrum half
4th choice tighthead? He’ll be third overall and second for most of the season.
 
so from the jacks  bench to our bench?
 
 
hmm ok , I saw him play vs ponty on tv  this year and come on vs the rfc he was struggling at that level tbh

no, but I dont think many signings will.

not even David Lyons did us much in terms of season tickets...we are already approaching 4000 seasons.
we wont get much more even if we signed Naholo. we are where we are.
winning trophies brings in season tickets more than signings.

Did the signings of Foxy and Halfpenny add to season tickets???
 
I suppose a few and increased interest in the team , more clicks on websites, more jerseys sold etc
 
We have signed 1 player for the   first team next year , so our big hope is we don't get another season of injuries like this
1 player that’s been announced
 
 
If we have signed player announce them, would give a good moral booster considering the current mood around the place

We need new players, the squad struggled this season. New  players needed  to give excitement in the stands

I don’t think we need that many surely we can’t have another horrendous season with injuries to such key individuals again
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

was he in a good pack? did he have much support from the locks at scrum time?

He is highly rated at the Ospreys. and has been through age grade. i personally think he will overtake Gardiner and will be the next to take over Kruger as Krugers career will come to an end. Thats how I see it panning out if he continues to develop. lets not forget hes a young prop and pontypool were known for their experienced pack. did you watch any other games he played in? Ospreys As etc?

Possibly 5th if SHC stays.

samson and cawdor will miss a large chunk of the season.
so before injuries, Blacker on paper is 3rd choice...whilst jeffries is 2nd/3rd. expect him to move above Gardiner. 


Im not sure he is/will be ahead of any of the three of Hardy, SHC & Evans.

Harlequins didn't mention anything about SHC coming back from his loan when announcing departing players;I reckon we wont see SHC back at PYS.

 Ideally we  need 2 locks, no 8, 6, centre and 2 out  and out wings with pace

He was only signed as injury cover until the end of the season

Not being sarcastic here but how is he highly rated at the ashtrays ? he was  4th choice behind even that molodvan rookie?
 
Ive seen him play for Aberavon in the semi pros to, he didn't look anything special there either
 
As I said Joe Rees looks far better to me at this level but I am no expert on front row play in all honesty
 
Blacker looks a good young player,  we are well stocked at 9 but if we can shift SHC he is far more reasonable salary to be carrying as a squad player

shocker I cant see us getting all those players. 2 maybe 3 more and that will be it. if we let will boyde go its because we have youngsters coming through.
see another lock (as we have lost 2). and a winger/fullback maybe at most.

I wouldn't sign any back 3 players (unless one goes possibly clayton) , I'd give the likes of conniber game time.
 
Another lock would be nice , not sure where we are at re nwq players or budgets in all honesty

But he’d have been ahead of that Moldovan if he hadn’t signed for Scarlets. They genuinely do rate him highly. They offered him a new deal but the Scarlets offer was better.
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1
