Back 3 : Johnny Mac, Rogers, Conbeer, Baldwin, Steff Evans.
Centres : Foxy, Scott, Eddie
10's Patchell, Dan
9's : Cawdor, Archie

Props : Steffan, Kemsley, Sam O'Connor, Harri O'Connor, Javan, WGJ.
Hookers : Daf, Shaun, Taylor
Rows : Louisi, Jac Price, Tom Price, Morgan Jones
Back Row : Fifita, Aaron, Blade, Lezana, Shenton, Carwyn, Sione. 

We are pretty depleted in the backs. I guess there is scope for guys like Blacker, Sam, Hardy, & Leigh to get to South Africa for the 2nd game if needed.

Think Jonny Williams may be available.

Dan Davis, Phil Price, Ioan Nicholas, Helps are available too I think. Alex Jeffries maybe.

Feels to me we are a bit light on depth at 9/10. Need to take 3 SH's for sure.

Jonny will help for sure. Yes normally you think you'd have 3 10's & 3 9's which is why I thought maybe re-inforcements if needed after first game. Otherwise it would probably be Harri Williams & Josh Phillips.

Think the Scarlets would do well to heed Wil's warnings about the increase in Covid both in East Africa & South Africa. Some cast iron assurances need to be sought if not already secured.

Pretty sure the rules were all boxed off pre season, but of course it's worth checking in again. I did let the club know separately.

Nothing to suggest anything will change but these guys memories of Covid/South Africa/15 nights in a motel in Northern Ireland must still be pretty fresh!

Pretty fresh & raw I would suggest. Any vague assurances & I would not hesitate to concede the games. We can't allow these lads to go through that again. Our URC season is as good as over as far as qualification goes - any nonsense again in South Africa would put paid to any chance we had in Europe however slim.

 that really was a disaster of a tour wasn’t it? The players wouldn’t be human if they didn’t have misgivings about going back

Yes, but to more or less empty stadiums and still tough restrictions there at the time.

You don't need even need to be vaccinated to get in these days.

That’s a squad that’s not filling me with confidence I must be honest

I had it mapped out mate. Air Bnb jut back from the V&A for 3 nights, tickets for the game in the bag...Wales v Australia at the Ferryman's on Saturday afternoon....then make a judgement whether people could tell I was Welsh before the England South Africa game later...:)

A perfect day by the sound of it Wil. I wouldn't have worried about the Welshness thing - having seen you jumping about when Wales scored against the Aussies with a few tinnnies on board you would have become an honorary Bokker.
