It is odd, it's not as if we post that often.
 
As for people not giving them a chance because they're Ospreys I don't buy that, we're not good enough to be that pedantic about where they are from.
 
And I'll change my opinion of them as players when they give me a reason to.

It doesn't happen often but it's agreement I think on this one

I very much doubt any of the criticism of GO and KP comes from the fact that they played for the Ospreys. We're desperate for players to do well for us.

Both of these players have ability, but their error count is consistently far too high for professional rugby. That doesn't mean they'll make errors in every game or they won't have really good moments, just that they're  unlikely to ever be a first team solution for us.

I think it's fair to say that in the cases of both players, their lack of development since they were promising youngsters is disappointing.

Obviously we're all being Osprey bashers with no objectivity. There's a reason they ended up here.

I agree with you there KC. He gets a lot of unfair criticism on here, as does Gareth Owen, from certain posters. I'd go as far to say that in a Scarlets shirt he's as good as George North ever was.


9 hours later and no-one's got anything to say about this? Really?

I mean really?


I just presumed it was some osprey fans trolling!

Eastern outpost yes I would bring him back if Big Mike is still carrying a knock. George Earl was man of the match according to the Rugby Paper but I would possibly give him another run out in semi pro then bench him against Munster, hopefully he will be fit then to start in Toulon.
