Yeah heard Rob is off to Miami. Currently player coach at Haverfordwest, who have made a big fuss of him joining them as a player coach but from what I’ve heard he doesn’t want to play for them in case he gets injured & affects his contract with Miami.

Ioan Lloyd was man of the match for me. Excited by him linking up with Mcnicholl and our backs.
Eddie James showing great promise.

Plumtree has great rugby IQ.

Impressed by Morgan Jones and Ed Scragg for his first game did very well. 

Shaun Evans with a strong showing again.

Gutting for Archie Hughes to come off after scoring.


Lineout needs real work, and the scrum, 
Defence looked good. 

Our Saffer forwards coach has said.....

"Don't practise until you get it right, practise until you don't get it wrong". I think they'll  get the real work. And the line-out became more reliable late in the game with just short balls to Jac Price at the front.

I think they didnt like losing after decent wins at Saints and Bath. They didnt expect us to be as decent as we were.

Rev Eldon who was announcing at the start told me just over 5000 ( I would guess 5500)

In fairness to the boys, it was their first game and the Baabaas had far more game time together to get organised in lineout defence.  It's good things improved towards the end.

Scragg looked a big unit. Much bigger than Jones and Price.

So his name is.... appropriate?

He walks/runs with slight stoop which makes him look bigger than he actually is. We've still got Craig to appear and he may be bigger. He also carries the ball which was not a major feature of any of Saturday's trio.

What I took from saturday is that our recruitment team played a blinder in the WRU inspired chaos of last spring. Dwayne talked about systems rather than imdividuals- I'd think of squad depth rather than individuals. We're in a much better place than we could have hoped for, particularly in the back 5 of the scrum where we have lots of options and the availability of our two Tongans is less critical to the team.

Sorry for the late post for this game been away with work...Really enjoyed the game against a good Baa Baa's side on paper that included a lot of capped internationals....Like Dwayne said after the game we were good with out the ball and showed a lot passion,courage and desire to defend which is great going forward to the season...WE also scored 5 good tries and tried to get the ball wide as often as possible...Lineout was a concern first half i don't think we actually won one,saying that Shaun Evans was again good in the loose...Impressed with the young backrow who never gave up and competed for everything...Shame to see Archie go off injured so early in the 2nd half with a hand injury,Kieran camr back on and looks sharp..Ioan Lloyd impressed with some nice touches and an eye for a gap once he settled into the game..Dinky 2nd half also showed up well both in attack and defence...Jonny Mac also popping up everywhere wanting the ball  is i hope a sign of good things to come...
