The players probably do look in the mirror every week, and say who gives a ---------!  Iam still getting paid.

Sorry I was not trying to have a go at JD solely about tonight but in general his conditioning without the ball was woefull and I was just asking if this is apparent in other games for the Scarlets or the semi pros. In BOD he was against class but he is not renowned these days for his pace. That being said BOD is one of those quality players where speed of thought is always worth a couple of metres in attack, and in defence when their line was breached i didnt see him trotting with everyone and his uncle running past him. Rant over. Please tell me im wrong as he is one of shining lines for the future or so I have been led to believe. 
 
And the Bold is correct, led to believe. I'm having a go at him, he was pathetic in Defense and caused all sorts of problems because he didn't know what day it was. I've opened said on here that he's overhyped, just like Roberts. He's like a carthorse, slow, out of shape, and a crash ball donkey, can't pass, can't kick, can't tackle.
 
Alun I hope you're right about D'arcy because this guy needs to go back to the SEmi pros to learn his trade.
 
Let's be honest there weren't any positives tonight. But to suggest that JD is a crash ball donkey who can't pass, kick or tackle is crazy.
He was way below par tonight, but so was everyone else!
 
Out of shape?
 
On that score you are having a laugh, considering you rated madden so highly!

And that is exactly what many of them are, and that's not to disrepect them, their abilities or efforts, but to put youngsters against a mature, hard nosed and tails up team like that, well, it was only ever going to go one way.
 
They will learn from it, once the bruises have healed, but it's a tough lesson to put them through.
 
And taking yet another beating is surely gonna turn them into Heineken Cup winning players isn't it?........................NOT!

Redeyes, if you've watched JD last season and this season you'll know this isn't the 1st time he's been made to look like a fool. Actually did you see him playing for the Semi pros at the beginning of this season? You'll know that everything I've said is true. We all know he can't kick, Nigel has even said it in the press. His passing is abysmal at times and for a 'lion in the making' that's just not good enough and the tackling has already been mentioned by more than just myself.
 
Out of shape, I believe he is because he runs around like a tight head prop not a centre. Agree?
Do you think Martyn Madden would marry me?

Dont blame trhe coaches - Blame Kirby - Hes desemated the squad by getting rid of useful players before the end of the season.
Then raise the scarlet standard high.
Within its shade we'll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We'll keep the red flag flying here.

why is there such hatred for kirby sant???
 
neither of the 4 players released this season would have helped on that field... i've seen kids play better, structured rugby than the scarlets tonight.
 
yes you can't blame coaches for missed tackles etc... but you can blame coaches for lack of defensive preparation, a very very limited gameplan and a complete waste of resources and facilities on a team that is nowhere near fit enough to play rugby at this level..
 
these you can blame the coaches on. Kirby answers to the board and as interim CEO then he will moreso than what gallacher had too.
 
we are a team of average players being coached by below average coaches. now i can't see kirby getting in depth coaching with the team, or checking footage of your next opposition...
 
I actually do hope we end up out of the HEC next season....

Ystradgynlais U14's played better in their Ospreys Cup Semi final the other week than the Scarlets played tonight, I sware.

Sant is probably trying to point the finger of low moral on Kirbys management style, or lack of it..

Kirby is an intermin CEO.
 
He's implementing the decisions of the Board in that respect. Pointless, and wrong, blaming him.

here here Mike, there is no way that Kirby would make the decisions to release those players without the authority of the board.
 
useless blaming Kirby...

It isn't even Kirby making those decisions and then getting Board authority.
 
It's the Board making those decisions and getting Kirby to implement them.
 
A catalogue of bad decisions going back 4-5 years by many individuals has got us into the current mess.

Is anyone making decisions, is there any one out there, if i was the main man, Nigel would be gone, simple, failure is not a business requirement, no excuses, the zombies must act, put him out of his misery.
 
At least Nigel can see this coming, Phil was taken up the garden path big style, you set a precendent, you live by it,
