Apologies I wasn't suggesting it would happen to us, Ireland's set up is quite different to ours.

with the amount of international games the WRU have planned how often will we see him?
Depends how the season is structured. The hope is the season is played in blocks so that test rugby and domestic rugby isn’t played the same time. If they can’t come to an agreement on that then we will hardly see Wales players.
This is the problem with the game under the current format. It's great having the big name international stars, the likes of Foxy, Sanjay, Halfpenny etc. But it's so frustrating when they hardly feature due to their international commitments. Lets hope change is coming.

From Scarlets website.

Scarlets confirmed in December that Brad Mooar will be linking up with Ian Foster’s All Blacks coaching team this summer and we would like to wish him and his family well. He has made an indelible impact in his brief time at the Scarlets, instilling a culture that new head coach Glenn Delaney and his coaching team will look to build on.

Ioan Cunningham leaves us after nine seasons in the Scarlets coaching system, graduating through the Academy to the senior coaching team. A former Scarlets player, Ioan has taken charge of the LV= Cup and British & Irish Cup sides and played an integral role as forwards coach in the Guinness PRO12 title triumph of 2016-17.

The players who will be leaving the Scarlets are Hadleigh Parkes, Kieron Fonotia, Corey Baldwin, Jonathan Evans, Morgan Williams, Simon Gardiner, Rhys Fawcett and Tom James, who is retiring from professional rugby.

Hadleigh Parkes arrived at Parc y Scarlets in October 2014 from Auckland and has gone on to play 122 matches in a Scarlets jersey over six seasons, scoring 13 tries. 

He was Scarlets player of the season in 2015-16 after playing every minute of every Guinness PRO12 match and a key member of the Scarlets title-winning squad of 2017. His ultra-consistent performances at the heart of the Scarlets three-quarter line earned him a Wales Test call-up that year and a place in Warren Gatland’s World Cup squad in 2019.

Jonathan Evans, another member of the match-day squad that lifted the PRO12 trophy in Dublin, will leave the Scarlets after four seasons in West Wales. The former Dragons and Bath scrum-half made 52 appearances in all.

Kieron Fonotia headed across the Loughor from the Ospreys two years ago. A member of the 2019 Samoa World Cup squad, ‘Fonz’ made 29 appearances in Scarlets colours.

Academy product Corey Baldwin will be joining Exeter Chiefs for the 2020-21 season. A Wales U20s cap, Corey has made 24 appearances in the senior side, including 16 this season.

Wales 7s and U20s cap Morgan Williams will be leaving the Scarlets after featuring in 15 matches over three seasons, scoring four tries.

Experienced tight-head prop Simon Gardiner has played 66 matches during two spells at Parc y Scarlets covering eight seasons. The Pembrokeshire product has been on loan at the Ospreys since December.

Loose-head prop Rhys Fawcett has been at the Scarlets since 2015, playing 10 matches. The 23-year-old is another who spent time on loan at the Liberty.

Wales international wing Tom James is saying his farewell after a season in West Wales. The 33-year-old has announced his retirement from professional rugby.

Some surprises in there. Wasn't expecting Ioan to be off but the forwards/set-piece (especially line-out) haven't been as good recently. I assume his contract was up and he was the last of the previous management set-up. John Barclay anyone??

Gutted to see Hadleigh go - the recent replay of the quarter final v La Rochelle showed him at his best. 

Jonathan Evans - such a shame he picked up his injuries, as he had a very good year when we won the pro12.

The biggest shame is not being able to give all of them the traditional season end send-off that they deserve.

So we now need some centres, one or two new back 3 players, a new scrum half (I would have liked to have kept Jon Evans as I thought he was a class scrum half and a great 2nd/3rd choice to have and still with loads to give given his age), and a new prop. We might see Kelmsley Matthias step up more next season.

I wonder whether Glenn Delaney has been allowed to build his on coaching setup and hence Ioan is leaving.  It’s sad to see another Welsh coach leaving the professional rugby system.
Diolch a pob lwc Ioan.
It sad that the coaches and players won’t have the opportunity to have the end of season send off that we are so good at as club.

Tyler Morgan confirmed as a Dragons leaver, guess that means he's definitely signed for us?
