Llanelli's match has been postponed due to a number of injuries in their front row.

they do that anyway. Also the 16 players doesn’t surprise me at all. It’s only so long you can string players along before they get wise to it

I have heard in fairness they rang around a few clubs asking for assistance.

Without trying to sound too negative, and with less players going to be available from the Scarlets next season due to squad reductions, is the RFC side coming to an end ?

On a positive  note,  there could be more players  available  across the league, with  regional  squads being reduced. 
For too long there have been too many mediocre players spead over too many teams in the premiership. 
It's not great of course  , for those losing  regional  contracts, it s been a worrying time for them. 

Where  does this leave Llanelli  RFC? 
It's difficult  to say of course, but it high time the RFC committee  met with the public to have a meaningful  discussion. 
We would like to know what options  there are, even if they are slim.
As it stands its a worrying  decline, and one that Scarlets,  even in the  current difficult  climate,  cannot wash their hands of.

If there are some regional players being released, Llanelli RFC ain’t going to be an attractive proposition unfortunately.

The top 4 in the league, Cardiff, Llandovery, Merthyr and  Aberavon have large budgets.

With Newport, RGC and Ebbw not too far behind.

I’m sure most regional players dropping down to semi pro level will be snapped up by the above sides in the main, that’s if they decide to stay in Wales.

Pontypool will be flush with money as well when they enter the Welsh Prem next season and I guess Neath will have a decent budget.

Some regional pros will no doubt go to the English championship as well.

Yes could well be true Boisbach.
Even the championship in England will pay a decent wage.
Makes it therefore even more important that the debate is opened by those running LLanelli RFC/including scarlets, before it disappears in to oblivion.
Surely than be done, difficult though it may be ?

Yes Ebbw climbed into the top 4 yesterday evening after a good away win and Aberavon losing again meaning they dropped out of top 4.

Ebbw doing well.

RFC should be able to find props to help them out big catchment area players in Coleg Sir Gar, Llandovery College, all the feeder clubs in the scarlets region

 Rfc have of course , been permitting players from Llanelli Wanderers Llangennech Hendy etc for years and not doing those clubs any favours. The Rfc needs to stand on its own two feet supported properly by the Scarlets Board or don’t bother. The idea that some in the Scarlets management have that you can find big sponsors to back a team that rarely wins/ has a very small number of supporters and who play in a giant almost empty stadium is ridiculous .
