Can't wait to have foxy back! World class centre! Great news to hear he's back in training and looking to be ready for start of season. Hope we get a home game again

Great news! He was sorely missed, especially at the cruch end of the season.

Are the new players in Llanelli yet? When does pre-season start? Hopefully not for a few weeks.

Good to hear, he is an outstanding player. Of the many great imports the Scarlets have had of late, he’s the second most impressive behind only Tadhg Beirne for me... and that is saying something what with Barclay, Parkes et al.

Let’s hope that the signings for next season maintain that unbelievably high level of quality.

It will all unfold in the coming season.

It was posted here that negotiations have already started re a new contract.

We all hope a suitable deal can be done.

Having read the thread, it seems that there is some concern that McNicholl could be tempted away at the end of the season. Obviously his performances have been top notch and would attract many admirers but what have people heard?

Until I found this forum I was under the impression (maybe naively) that he may stay with the Scarlets to get Welsh qualification. I know there have been a couple of contrasting interviews on his international desire but I hadn’t heard any rumours of him leaving.

Is he a good allocation of funds?

Jury is out as far as Clayton is concerned. Defensively he's a bit of an unknown. Collins is in the Halfpenny mould. As for playing in midfield he isn't quick enough to play 13 so I would see him as a very able deputy for Hadleigh with a better kicking game. Asquith I feel will give Fonotia a tough battle for the 13 shirt when Foxy doesn't play. I would prefer to see us go for Adams for the 2019/20 season.

However I agree with Ffidel that our front 5 - tight head and 2nd rows may well be in need of money spending as a first priority. We are all hoping of course that our back 3 requirements will be met in house with a string of very talented players on our books.

Wouldn’t be a bad player to keep an eye on, especially if Jonny Mac does go end of the coming season.

Collins is a tidy player, but lacks pace, so no way could he be considered as a replacement for Jonny... a good squad player, maybe, but I suspect that there are other positions which need strengthening more, if any cash is still available.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Agree nothing special need to invest in keeping mcnichol. If he does come in then it will be to cover halfpenny.
