Piece in WOL with Dwayne saying contract negotiations are underway and some high profile players will be leaving and ultimately replaced with current youngsters and not from outside. Although some outside recruitment is needed. Dwayne only mentions Kal as a high profile player who’s leaving. Any other names being banded around? 
Only one team plays in red. (Sorry, Scarlet)

If those high profile players are the likes of Foxy, Ken, Shingler etc then that needs to happen now anyway regardless of the financial situation. A good time to invest in our younger stars

I hope the regions have robust dialogue about players that might become available.

A region with too much talent in a position to keep them all might find a match for that player at another region.

Right Wil. We have a surplus of scrum halves, centres and hookers, but at the end of the season we may have too few second rows, outside halves, back 3 players, and carrying forwards in general. Time for swap-shop.

Wait a minute , it wasn't that long ago we had to many opensides and within a few weeks we didn't have any fit...
I feel certain positions because of the type of play need strength in depth , others not so ....we also need to start and develop our backs to cover more than 1 position , this will give us greater resources to buy a further player or 2 in positions that all ways end up with high amount of injuries

You would like to think Hardy would be perfect for the Ospreys, if we retained Blacker and Davies that is.

Thomson and Kalamafoni are 2 high profile players, along with Ken, JD, Halfpenny, Lee, Shingler and Elias presumably as he has over 25 caps? Lezana possibly.

I would be disappointed if we lost any one of Wyn Jones, Lousi, Macleod, Gareth Davies, Jonny Williams or McNicholl.

Know I’ve missed a few, but can’t think on the top of my head. Thinks it’s far more important to retain a lot of our hopefully future stars.

I guess Patch  is another and perhaps sadly Scott? Samson must be at risk as well and Hardy perhaps as we have Cawdor and Blacker plus the two younger ones ? We shall have to wait but losing quality forwards is really not what we want to see.. Kal can’t be replaced by Josh or Carwyn or in terms of serious carries and ball skills although I fully understand his reasons. It’s an awful time to be a coach as well in this climate

We have too few quality players to give any away to the other Regions and nor do I want any of their outcasts. 
We have a good nucleus of young players but the next few seasons are going to be a huge struggle.
All because of greed by small minded men who want to keep their place aboard the gravy train.

   My understanding at moment is, we only  have one hooker signed up for next season.

I read a good piece on this somewhere that a squad of 40 May struggle to field a side with HIAs and injuries - imagine you have 15 players out. It’s all a shambles - how can we be expected to win silverware on this? It will just mean more fatigue, injuries, less performance until the argument for 2/3 regions is stronger.

Plus some international call ups on top.

The RFC (who struggle now !) will be taking a hit every week with players supplementing the main Scarlets squad.
