He certainly has potential.
coming from similar background to Jake Ball and Paul Asquith.
no doubt a project, but I am sure if he has the right attitude, he could go well

Excellent.
Seen much of him?



Never even heard of him tbh...just really like the concept of taking promising talent as project players from the Prem.

If the WRU get it right the Prem should be challenging the ITM Cup etc for talent...
agree.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Scarlets u23 side next season though. 
exciting prospects, new additions and squad members needing game time. 

Hopefully we can see something like: 
15. Tomi Lewis
14. Ioan Nicholas
13. Corey Baldwin
12. Steff Hughes
11. Ryan Conbeer
10. Angus OBrien
9. Kieran Hardy
8. Tom Phillips
7. Dan Davis
6. Ed Kennedy
5. Matthew Davies
4. Tom Price
3. Simon Gardiner
2. Dafydd Hughes
1. Dylan Evans
16. Taylor Davies
17. Rhys Fawcett
18. Javan Sebastien
19. Carwyn Tuipolotu
20. Shaun Evans
21. Declan Smith
22. Ioan Hughes
23. Tomi Rogers
and thats off the top of my head! 

But going by the sheer size of Matthew Davies, as well as age...certainly worth a project. 

I think he was Wales U20's and is about 6 foot 7 inches (in old money!)

I don't know if anyone has seen that video of Ed Kennedy that Crys16 uploaded to Twitter, but there is a case of the "Tadhg" about his play. Seems very dynamic in the loose and scored a few beauties that resembled Beirne's try in the final last year. 

Welsh qualified too so won't have to ply his trade elsewhere if international honors come a-calling.

If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose.

No problem - I'm sure we all realised you were joking about that! It still seemed worth a comment or two, though (the article, that is).

Apart from being one of the best US punk bands, ‘Ed Kennedy's Welsh-qualified, too!

Came through loud & clear Ffidel. It was the use of the word 'journalism' in relation to a Wales Online article that gave it away for me.
