Some speculation this morning that his move to Bayonne might fall through as they have failed to gain promotion to the Top14 for next season.

Would he add any value to our midfield if we stepped in to offer him an alternative move?

Thoughts welcome.

The last thing the Scarlets need is to sign a player on big wages who will be missing for large chunks of the season.

Large chunks? 

I thought Pro16 next season will only play on one or possibly two weekends when there are internationals taking place?

Add in all the training camps etc and it’s significantly more than that.

That’s true. We’ve got plenty of them.

He’s a great player, big fan of his. But, as mentioned previously, maybe not the best investment with regards to wages and game time ratio.

Only one team plays in red. (Sorry, Scarlet)

As soon as he plays well he’s in the Scotland team again. I’d like us to target a big pacific islander forward, and a back who is regularly available.

I mean if we could clone Lousi we’d be set at second row

we won’t have to release him for those? Not saying to sign him though. Get a kiwi in

  No thanks! If he retired from Scotland , possibly yes!


   Hopefully we will  not lose so many players to the 1st Region ,team Wales .

Wales have a small player poll anyone who plays well will get called up. Although i think the likes of halfpenny  rob cubby shingler maybe done at test level

Townsend doesn’t seem to rate him. Left him out of the World Cup squad and only played off the bench in 6N (I think)

He may play well for us and I think Scotland have their centres in Harris and Johnson. It’s my understanding Townsend doesn’t rate Jones’ defence. So he might not be what we’re after…

He’s a good player. If we could secure him on reasonable wages I think he’d probably be a good signing.

Also, I’ve got a signed shirt of his which I won as a result of picking Hardy being the first try scorer in the game up at scotstoun in 2019.

So he should sign for us

He's better than Tyler Morgan that's for sure.

Huw Jones is an excellent attacking player but his defence is very poor. So in my opinion, not the type of player the Scarlets need at present.

Yeah his defence isn’t good enough

Our defence yesterday at 10/12/13 was awful. The Edinburgh centres in particular crossed the gain line through poor tackling on numerous occasions. Dan really needs to work on his tackle technique as often doesn't wrap or use arms in the tackle.

You missed out 11 and 14 🙁

The most physical guy in our backline yesterday was probably Rogers at 15. We need more power and size otherwise we're always going to be conceding the gain line. When teams get within 15 metres or play direct we inevitably concede points on a regular basis.

simon muderack did say we are looking at a physical player in centres/wing area, we really do need an enforcer and leader in our backs to tighten up our defence and to give us some go forward in contact

I just can't see why we are so fragile around the fringes, we have been all season but there is no real reason as to why we are.

On Sunday no physical presence in the back division and only one in the back row and he's off to the Ospreys.  Hardy is a good defender but he's not a Mike Phillips.

Ryan missed a few tackles and needs to work on that . Having said that the Scots had some big units out there.

our back rowers are all good ball players but none are really good in close quarter. Blade a bit unlucky not to win a pen in the build up to their first try, then 2 phases he later he goes falling over a ruck on our line 😳

That was laughable.

If we could get them fit, Patchell, Foxy and Williams is a very solid defensive midfield.

This is intriguing. (Good player by the way).
I've not heard of a rugby club granting a contract clause allowing a player to be released if they don't get promoted. Not ideal waiting until June to get that knowledge either!

Seen players try (and occasionally succeed if both parties align) to get out of a contract when things change notably...see Rhys Carre from Sarries for example.

Seems he did have this clause in his contract, very clever.

Scotland centre  https://www.rugbypass.com/players/huw-jones/" rel="nofollow - Huw Jones  is considering a contract offer from newly-crowned Premiership champions Harlequins.

ADVERTISEMENT

Jones had agreed to join  https://www.rugbypass.com/teams/bayonne/" rel="nofollow - Bayonne  next season, but is understood to have invoked a relegation clause to withdraw from the move after the French side dropped to the ProD2.

The 27-year-old ended his four-season stint at  https://www.rugbypass.com/teams/glasgow/" rel="nofollow - Glasgow  this summer, and has long desired to play in the Top 14. However, with Bayonne’s defeat by rivals Biarritz in the league play-off, he has chosen to pursue options elsewhere and is expected to conclude a deal with Quins in the coming days.

Good signing for Quins. Will probably improve their defence 😅
