I am encouraged to hear coaches saying that summer tourists like Rowlands will be featuring in the URC first games. His workload was as high as anyones so here goes with the team :-

15. Rogers 14. Baldwin 13. Foxy 12. Scott 11. Conbeer 10. Patchell 9. Cawdor 
1. Thomas 2. Hughes 3. Javan 4. Sam 5. Fifita 6. Blade 7. Lezana 8. Sione

16. Ryan 17. Wyn 18. Harri 19. Morgan 20. Josh 21. Blacker 22. Costelow 23. Johnny Williams

My selections are based on McNichol, Jac Price, Ken, Halfpenny & Dan Davis still recovering from knocks and being unavailable with Hardy being given some extra time off after a very busy summer. The same could go with Ryan, if so Taylor steps in. If McNichol is actually fit then I would have him at 14 with Bladwin starting at 13. Captaincy for me is Scott.

Peel has made a point,it seems,of referring to these pre-season games as "trials".If that is the case,on Friday's evidence Fox would be lucky to get a start for Dock.

I tend to agree with your current assessment of Foxy though I think you may be going a little over the top but I do believe that Dwayne is more than capable of selecting his best team. The problem I see is that with Joe Roberts injured we have little scope for movement.

Personally I would love to see Baldwin given a run of games at 13 & I would also like to see Johnny Williams tried there. Young Eddie James is another who may be considered but I understand his strength is at 12 where, of course, we are well stocked. 

Of course Dwayne is in possession of all the training facts so will be aware of all limitations/reduction in speed etc.

Really worrying when two weeks before the league starts with the biggest derby of our season and we have no idea of our or their test players will be avialable, shambolic by the league and wru tbh

I have to say that the back play in general was worrying on Friday.
Dan Jones gave 4 hospital passes,the flanker showed Scott and Steff Evs a clean pair of heels for their 1st,Gatsby was completely Lord Lucan,and in the final stages(which were exciting,true)any notion of allignment or structure had completely disappeared-admittedly no 10 on the field,but it really was under 11 stuff.Conbeer,Eddie James and to some extent Rogers gave cause for encouragement.Fifita operated at greater pace than the midfield.Hoping to see an improvement Friday.

Gatsby LOLLOL. We are a bit short of top end speed with dan scott foxy and steff out there in fairness. Need the likes of cawdor costello jonny mac and conbeer to add that

Bit early bearing in mind Dwayne said he wants to see how others go in game v Dragons. Not really giving others like JRW and Baldwin chance.

The forwards should be easy with GPR's initial post very close to the selection, but as RR1972 has pointed out the backs starting against Bristol have very little outright pace and penetration. A big dilemma is that Dwayne's original choice of captain at present would be lucky to be in the starting lineup and it will be a measure of how ruthless Dwayne is willing to be that he is willing to admit his mistake and change his plans.
Also it is a little worrying that Dan Jones was the best 10 available to us against Bristol. Allowing for Patch's poor fitness record, we are an injury to Costelow away from trouble, (although Josh Phillips reported performance for Llanelli is quite encouraging) But 10 is definitely a position where we should be looking to strengthen - Cubby keep your eyes open.

   Can see Eddie James pushing hard,, can play 12 or 13... With regards Baldwin, most of his rugby he as played on wing... Disappointed last week our most dynamic attacker, rarely saw ball, he needs to come off his wing and looking for work ie Steff Evans.
   I saw Josh Phillips give a very good performance on Saturday! Stated at 15,then moved to 10. The goalkicking performance in difficult conditions was World Class.. I remember Halfpenny give a similar performance for Cardiff RFC v Llanelli RFC as a  young man.

Good to see Steff Evans not in this line up. He showed zero conviction in defence against Bristol. There's trying n getting it wrong, then not bothering at all. Let's see how they all do against the Dragons. A bizzare choice of opponents for a pre season friendly.

I am reading that Ellis Genge starts for Bristol on Friday 7 weeks after appearing for England. Absolutely no reason to expect our International contingent to get stuck in, if selected.

Ok we now have the benefit of ongoing selection for the postponed Dragons game which suggest that my hopes could be possible. If so then I would make some changes to my selected 23 with McNichol starting at 14 & Baldwin at 13. I have a feeling that Dwayne will go with Johnny at 15, Rogers at 14 & Foxy at 13 but I live in hope. 

Please fellow posters only reply to this post on rugby issues and let the subject of whether this game goes ahead lie low until we have a definitive statement. Sports governing bodies will have their own reasons for decisions they have made/will make; we may choose to disagree with those decisions but they are decisions made outside of the Royal household or indeed Westminster.

I’m disappointed that Foxy is clearly captain again this season, because this will inevitably mean he will be selected ahead of others who are in better form. When all our centres are fit we will have a great stable to select from. And form aside, I don’t think Foxy has the pace to play 13 in the high tempo game that I thought Dwayne wanted us to play.
Our captain should be someone who is more likely to be rightful first choice, like Elias, Kal or Lousi. If it was Elias then a vice captain could be selected who won’t be involved in internationals

Well N14 there has been a lot of debate about Foxy's pace issue & this, I must admit, is pretty clearly obvious by the way he has performed last season. What I will say is that Dwayne understands what is required to play 13 in his system & he, of course, is in possession of the training data which may or may not confirm a loss of pace. 

Speaking from personal, far lower level experience, my pace over 50 metres didn't drop off after a bad ACL injury but my decision making turning/changing direction was definitely affected by a sub conscious need to protect my knee hence making me seem slower all round. 

I have every faith that Dwayne will select his best players. He has proved, beyond any doubt last season, that reputations mean nothing which is exactly as it should be.

I've watched enough players for enough years to be able to judge whether or not they're quick.It's not difficult to see that a man is slower than he used to be:in Fox's case it's obvious,painfully so.Obvious too is his stifness,seeming inability to turn with any speed:yes,the effect of an injury..
All the training,all the analysis,all the data-all the infrastructure exists to put the players on the field who are good enough to win games.We judge what we see in the 80 minutes of a match-that is what counts.That's what sells tickets and wins trophies .Fox has not perforned for years.End of.The fact that he's still skipper,poster boy and probably first choice is difficult to understand,but far more difficult to accept,and it probably reveals much of what is wrong with this sport.There is a real danger that the dwindling band of people who bother to go down to the Parc behave like North Korean functionaries,like fawning flunkeys afraid to point out the fact that Kim Jong Il has got a stupid haircut.Foxy is not good enough any more.

Foxy defo lost pace he is less exposed at 12 tbh though i think the two williams boys should be our starting cente. Not sure why foxy is capt it’s an issue dwayne doesn’t need eg dropping your skipper. We also need to decide who are starting half backs are  and guve them a run of games, cawdor and sam for me


Posted By: N14
Date Posted: 10 September 2022 at 10:50am
Just to clarify, unlike some others perhaps, I do still think Foxy has plenty to offer in the squad. I think he's a good guy to have around in training, a good guy for youngsters to learn from, and I'd certainly be looking at benching him, especially for the bigger games, because he's such an experienced player to bring on to help close out a narrow victory. I just think starting him at centre week in, week out is the wrong decision and may hinder the development of others.

Whose our back row? Not sure lezana blade and sione can offer enough at breakdown tbh josh has to start at 7 for me. If not morgan  could clean up there , snith is another good jackler for them. If lake plays we need to target their line out they also have no decent 15 so another area to target

Good shout.Lake couldn't hit the mud if he jumped into Bury Port harbour,and I fancy we got a few jumpers to steal a few-all the more important to pick players with pace to take full advantage.
I fear you're right about the back-row,and was looking fwd to see Macleod come on v Newport.
Having said that,Booth cannot be relied upon to pick his best players,and his selection might well help us.
Peel said that the 2 friendlies  were trials,so I'm not sure what to make of things now.

We’ve hardly had a mass of new players like some other clubs. It’s basically exactly the same squad as last year. Yes there’s new coaches but it’s not ripping up the rule book.

It will be an interesting team selection with only one preseason match. Hope the boys can get a hit out behind closed doors.

Yes, a match against Dragons behind closed doors on Monday would surely be beneficial to both sides?

You're not wrong.Peel made a point,though,more than once ,of referring to the 2 friendlies as "trials".He picked same pack to start both games.
Difficult to see who was on trial,esp. with 2nd game called off.Centres perhaps?
I'd like to see this backline start-
Cawdor,Costelow
Conbeer,JBW,,Baldwin,Mcnichol,Rogers.

Think it will go ahead, the reason for the football was just in case fans were disrespectful during the match at any point towards the Queen. Not sure if that was the reason for the Welsh rugby also.

My team would be;
15. McNicholl 14. Rogers 13. Davies 12. S. Williams 11. Conbeer 10. Costelow 9. Hardy 8. Kalamafoni 7. Macleod 6. Thomson 5. Fifita 4. Lousi 3. Sebastian 2. Elias 1. Jones

16. Hughes 17. Thomas 18. O’Connor 19. J. Price 20. Lezana 21. Davies 22. Patchell 23. J. Williams.

Foxy has played 1 game of rugby in pre season and is already being written off

We need to start backing our players and get behind them. Yes last season he wasnt at his best but hes had a nice pre season break, done a full pre season with us, looks to have lost some weight, i think hes going to be a key player for us this season

Is there any reason the game trial game against Dragons could not be played on Monday evening? It would give both teams players a good run out and provide some much needed income. It would also give the coach a better idea of who he should select for the Ospreys game.

You could play 3x30mins with a bigger squad to ensure that the 23 in the frame for Ospreys get a chance to get a run out against opposition and not a Scarlets training day.

Great to see the forum has confidence this game will go ahead!

Ticket sales appear to have picked up a bit, really looking forward to it, WRU permitting.

Team selection will be fascinating now that the likes of McNicholl, Patchell, Costelow, Cawdor, Lousi etc have had no game time prior to the season. I wonder if they held an intra squad game this weekend instead.

Love the analogy about Burry port harbour Dic..LOL   Lake is good forward, but recently has struggled with line out.
Not long ago, we were saying the same about Ryan Elias!
Regarding back row, it's great to see josh back in the mix. He will undoubtedly have a big part to play. this season.
Its right you have identified the breakdown as an area of concern, with Morgan present.
ATM, i would start with Blade, Kal & Lezama. Blade for a tall man, is a better jackler than you think, but obviously not a specialist like Cubby. Lezana is more of a tackler and carrier.
If we are experiences problems can bring Josh (fresh) off the bench.
Regarding centres, I cannot see Dwaine not picking fox (whatever we think), who will probably pair up with Jonny Will. Going forward maybe inside centre maybe the best position for Jonathan.
Looking forward to the fifita /Sam L combination in SR. The theory sounds tantalising, but are they both two peas out of same pod??
Previously our successful combinations had Vernon Cooper and Chris Wyatt in the SR. Two very contrasting and complimentary players. Vernon did the spade work allowing Chris to do other things, with his athleticism.
When fully fit I reck Jac Price will fill the slot in the same way in the Vernon mould. He's still learning, but has impressed with the dog he has shown, with carries, huge number of tackles. Hopefully will continue his encouraging development

One legitimate pre season match before playing your rivals on opening day is not ideal.

It's not ideal at all. Hopefully they will have played a full contact match within the squad instead of the Dragons game.
Mike Tyson said everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face. Going up against proper opposition is the team getting re-familiarised with being punched in the face, tactically and physically, and dealing with those "punches" which they just won't get in training.

Well, he's very keen on getting us into some KO rugby and himself into contention for the RWC, according to the Rugby Paper today.

Wait and see is the real answer to Foxy. I think the williams should be a centre pairing even if they are both 12’s naturally.

How short memories some people have one of the vast centres ever to play for us. Yes he lost bit of pace was outstanding in the Cardiff game away last year and is still a quality player. I don’t understand the need to knock certain players on here. He good enough to start for us and we should be behind him.

he was a top player arugably the best 13 in the world for a spell but age and injuries appear to have caught up with him, at 12 his lack of pace won’t be as exposed. If we pick him imo it should be at 12 plus he has a big left boot Always handy at 12. None of our centres for all their many plua ppints have a great kicking game  in fairness i can’t think of a welsh centre who does

Looks like a centre playing on the wing.Nobody has excelled at 13,our back play is ponderous-so Baldwin,and Roberts,and James deserve a chance,and supporters deserve to see that the club is trying to improve.If he's good-great;if not,at least we shall know.Why should we not see?Who gains by not trying out our options?

Scott is under-rated and a supremely intelligent footballer IMHO, but I want to see more of Eddie James and Joe Roberts (Joe is injured) as one has power and the other pace aplenty

Whilst the kick off time, as I have mentioned, isn't great for grass roots rugby but the other thing to remember is we are in a cost of living crisis & going to the rugby may be seen as non essential. It could easily turn out to cost £100 for a family of 4 when you take into account tickets, fuel, parking, food etc.

I can't make this match but am really hoping we put in a good defensive shift against a side who I think have the potential to be dark horses in the URC this season. The Ospreys have a number of players in their pack who are exceptional over the ball & we will need to ensure we support our ball runners to help mitigate that threat. 

The forecast for the week looks to be dry, so we could be treated to some good running rugby.

The Osprey fans are talking themselves up enough we don’t need to do it for them. They have a good first team but do not have the strength in depth that we have or other teams to manage during the internationals to trouble the top of the league. They will suffer as we have over the last ten years by having a lot of Welsh international players in their squad.

It's getting harder to select in certain positions. And getting harder to select a bench! Some quality is going to miss out on selection. 

I'd go: 

15. Tom Rogers
14. Johnny Mcnicholl
13. Foxy
12. Scott Williams
11. Ryan Conbeer
10. Sam Costellow
9. Cawdor
8. Sione Kalamafoni
7. Tomas Lezana
6. Blade Thomson
5. Vaea Fifita
4. Sam Lousi
3. Hari OConnor
2. Ryan Elias
1. Wyn Jones

16. Taylor Davies
17. Steff Thomas
18. Javan Sebastian
19. Tom Price
20. Josh Macleod
21. Dane Blacker
22. Rhys Patchell
23. Johnny Williams

Family of 4 would be £60 tops. Yes there is a cost of living crisis but there’s ways of handling your money. Free parking Tesco or Morrisons bring their own food and drink. Yes the stuff is expensive there but there’s no rules saying you have to buy food and drink in the ground. Ticket sales are looking very poor with four days to go.

Tickets for 4, 2 adults & 2 children, are £66 before fees - that's sitting in the end block of the south stand. Most supermarkets have restrictions on parking in their car parks & you're fined if you stay over that time limit. I get what you're saying, there are alternatives - the train for example comes out at £81.00 for a family of 4 from Pembrokeshire to Llanelli. There used to be loads of buses that would go to PYS from Pembrokeshire which were £5 each way but they have all but stopped now.

I'm not sure on the rules about food but most stadiums don't allow it - maybe PYS is different. 

Yes there are ways of handling your money, but when everything is going up, families may not have £60 plus fuel to spend on a Saturday afternoon.

I thought parking in Morrisons and Tescos is for customers only.  Just because they have removed cameras doesn't  mean you can park there for the rugby.  There are lots of roads in Llanelli  without speed cameras, doesn't  mean you can do 60mph on them.  Pay a fiver and park in the official car park is the right thing to do imo.

Jones, Elias and Sebastian front row.

The thought of Fifita, Lousi, Thomson and Kalamafoni must be quite scary for opposition, 4 seriously good ball players. 

With a bit of luck we get to see the same Macleod that earned himself a call up to the Welsh squad, prior to the call up he was getting MOM every other game. Will definitely match up over the ball if we get to see that Macleod.

Gareth Davies over Hardy possibly? Cawdor still a class act and has that nettle for this type of game.

Costelow starts for me, Great all round player. Patchell let us down last season, think he has to earn the starting berth.

Scott Williams and Jonathan Davies centre pairing for me, had a full pre season together.

Back 3 of Rogers, McNicholl and Conbeer would be nice to see.

This is a tricky game first up. Much will depend on the eventual line ups. My old sparring partner Why has thrown me into total confusion by predicting an Ospreys win. If Gareth Williams has been able to work a miracle and fix our porous defence then we can win & we can win well. However if we carry baggage defensively from last season we are going to struggle.

I hope we have worked hard on our defence over the summer I really do, last season we were one of the highest points scorers in the league but at the same time we were one of the sides which conceded the most points.

As you say GPR, this really isn't the easiest start for us & could be a very high scoring match but we were fairly decent at defending mauls last season & that's an area the Ospreys excel in. I think we will win this but we will need to be alert & stop giving away silly penalties. I think Josh should start at 7 so we can have a threat over the ball as they have so many players who are good at that. 

If we win this one, then I can see us picking up 4 or 5 wins out of our first 5 games & that would really put us in good standing for the season.
