  With doubts over Cubby, Macleod out until December, Lezana not arriving until October. On top of that saw Iestyn Rees in boot at game yesterday, and news that Carwyn at to have a finger operation after the 20s Six Nations, Welsh management playing him despite picking up the injury early in first game against Italy.

   So yet again we see a player whose health and well being was of little concern to the Welsh management.

I feel we are one injury away from disaster in back row, with so many boys unavailable. I feel we need a quality 7 addition.

   With Nic Cudd back at Carmarthen Quins, feel we could do far worse than bring him in on a short term loan.

Thought Tom Phillips was excellent yesterday. Granted the opposition wasn’t the best but you couldn’t fault Tom’s efforts. 
Only one team plays in red. (Sorry, Scarlet)

Good to see Tom with all his injuries back and he did play pretty well I thought considering he is now only a semi pro .

Ellis is doing Medicine in Cardiff Uni but perhaps he is now allocated to a local hospital? He is a very good clever player

Let's give Dan Davis the chance to recapture his once exceptional pace. We asked him to bulk up, and he has responded, perhaps to the detriment of outright pace. We have been very tolerant of the long injuries some of our favourite players have suffered so let's hope that Dan can use a fraction of this time to get back up to speed!

You keep being moved around, at first every week or so but even in years 4-5, no longer than every couple of months. So he would not be this far west for longer than a couple of months.

What happens if Dan gets injured before Lezana returns? There needs to be a signing made at 7
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Could Blade or Shings play 7 if required?

They'd have to if Dan got injured but obviously neither are natural opensides.
