If what I am hearing is correct, Scott Williams is back for judgement day.

Scarletspiderman, can you confirm this ?

That's what they have been saying. But until he takes to the feild you never know.

Personally I think I'd bench him at best anyway. Parkes has been brilliant for us, Owen and Reggie have been pretty decent too, so I would risk throwing in someone who hasn't played since October purely based on his name.

Yes but it is nice to see him back all the same. OK

Let's get him some game time before Wales tour NZ.

Yeah let's sacrifice the Scarlets chances of the playoffs, and possibly Europe, to ensure that Scott can bench warm in New Zealand.

I'd like to see Scott or Tyler partner Roberts. Not impressed with JD2 in the past 3 years at all.

Dowlais would do anything to shoehorn all Welsh players in. You should also drop DTH as he's blocking the progression of a winger in division 3 West. #welshisbest

After the game on Saturday we had the official leaving presentation thing (not all of the players were there mind).

So I believe that the Scarlets are losing the following (and I believe that is it)

Phil John
Kirby Myhill
Rhodri Jones
George Earle
Paulinho
Rhodri Williams
Steve Shingler
Jordan Williams
Regan King
Michael Tagicakibau
Michael Collins

Also we have currently announced the following signings

Werner Kruger
Jonny Evans
Rhys Patchell
Jon Davies
Johnny McNicholl

In addition to these I have heard that Tom Williams has signed for two years (as he was on loan). We are meant to be announcing a second row signing today sometime (I believe it is Bernardo from the Ospreys). And Mick Collins is pretty likely to return come the end of the ITM Cup, as he was only signed on loan originally and was always going to have to return. So I think with players being promoted from the academy/semi-pros, we are in pretty good shape, maybe we will need another loosehead (unless we intend on trying the under20s kids there), and maybe another lump type lock.

2016/2017 Squad (at the moment)

Back Three
Liam Williams, Johnny McNicholl, DTH Van De Merwe, Steffan Evans, Tom Williams, Harry Robinson

Centres
Jon Davies, Scott Williams, Hadleigh Parkes, Gareth Owen, Steffan Hughes

Fly Halves
Rhys Patchell, Dan Jones, Aled Thomas

Scrum Halves
Gareth Davies, Aled Davies, Jonny Evans

Looseheads
Rob Evans, Dylan Evans, Rhys Fawcett

Hookers
Ken Owens, Emyr Phillips, Ryan Ellias

Tightheads
Samson Lee, Werner Kruger, Peter Edwards

Locks
Jake Ball, David Bullbring, Tom Price, Lewis Rawlings

Backrow
James Davies, John Barclay, Morgan Allen, Aaron Shingler, Will Boyde, Jack Condy, Tom Phillips

Hey I quite like the idea of a Cardiff clown. Should be our mascot I reckon and armed with a comedy car horn to put off the opposition kicker and buckets of confetti for the crowd. The kids would love it.

He wasn't amongst the players who were awarded their leaving presents, and Pivac is constantly mentioning him when he does his 'building a squad for the next season or two' stuff, so I believe he is staying. Hopefully all the stuff about him leaving was new baby nerves, as it was doing the rounds just after his little one was born.

It does look like we are going to let a few more go, but they are academy kids (and Jack Paybe, brought in as a punt/potential).

SS I think you'll only truly miss Earle, Myhill and Collins - but isn't the latter coming back to you anyway? The rest have been a bit poor. I notice you have Steve Shingler on your list, and I remember saying at the start of the season that he was no longer cut out for this level. To cut a long story short I was criticised by Chunky and the likes for merey pointing out something blatantly obvious, so I wonder if they'll come back and appologise to me?

Chunky won't be back to apologise, he's told me he's been given the boot from here after his numerous run ins with the mafia on here.

I was one of those who defended Shingler, and even after his woeful display on Saturday I still will. His goal kicking in the early part of the season is the only reason the Scarlets are not sat down with the other regions hoping for results to go their way.

That said he will probably not be too badly missed, patch is an upgrade, and Dan Jones is developing nicely. And we still have Aled there to slot in when required. I do wonder where Shingler will fit in at the Blues, but I think he will be more successful there than Nipper will be.

Is that first part true? I think that's awful. A guy who strongly harboured a view that disagreed with the status quo gets kicked off by the Irish-biased mods Headscratch.

His goal kicking was still poor earlier in the season SS, low percentage rate. Perhaps you're still loving the fact that during a game where he kicked very poorly, he slotted the penalty that won Scarlets the game (against Munster) in the final minute? I don't see what there is to defend if I'm honest - he can't cut it.

I wholeheartedly agree with your final comments. Jones and McBryde look very promising, probably a bit too soon, but as you said Patchell is coming in, and from what I've seen this season Aled Thomas is much better than Shingler. I can't at all see why the Blues signed Shingler.

He was getting used as an American football style goal kicker, being brought on to slot the 3, near the end when it was most needed (done a few times at home, failed against Ospreys at home sadly). But I think Aled Thomas has a higher % this season in all, even taking the Edinburgh away game into account.

I can see why the Blues have gone for him, when he is fit (this weekend he was returning from months out), and I think they know Annscombe will be missing with Wales, maybe Nipper too. Also as a bench option he can cover 10,12,15.

Probably to play centre. Its where he played at London Irish and with Cory Allen stuck to the treatment table and Willis halaholo not arriving till the middle of the season hes probably not bad cover for injuries also he can be on the bench when anscombe is with wales and cover 10. The blues lost patchell and I cant see a welsh qualified back up ten available when they picked up shingler, however, I bet they wished they waited and got Tovey

I wish Cardiff waited to get Tovey, would have grown under Wilson. Ah well, Shingler will have to do. McBryde looked great for the U20s, agree Scarlets have a future gem there.

I actually thought Shingler could do a decent job at 12 despite having face like a wet fish, and provided there was a good enough 10 inside him. His ball-playing is probably a bit better than Gavin Evans' too... TR, a lot of folk down here are still fuming over the Tovey release, particularly if the Lyp rumour is true.

They could still get Tovey though. Just have to be quick in case Edinburgh do sign him. I am sure he would rather stay in Wales too.

Let's be honest McShingler has been injured pretty much all season, when he has played he has hobbled about the field and been covered in bandages and plaster. I suspect I am not alone in being one who expected Shingler to make the no 10 jersey his own after Priestland left, but with such a poor run on injuries he just has not been fit enough to mount a challenge. It's been a big problem for the Scarlets who have been playing the under 20's guy Jones and journeyman Aled.

What's more of a suprise is the way the Scarlets have seemingly lost interest at the business end of the season, going from winning away at Ospreys to just not turning up against, Cardiff and Glasgow. Any of the Scarlets fans know if there a dressing room problem? The players seem to have no interest or pride in the jersey, the defence in the last two games has been non existent, both in tactics and commitment!

Seagul, on the Scarlets forum there is the usual talk of people losing the changing room. But to be honest that just seems to be the go to excuse people use nowadays.

Also, not sure if anyone has seen this but Phil John has come out and said he is looking for another side, as he still has a few years left in the tank and even though he wished to remain at the Scarlets, he was not offered another contract. Obviously that has fuelled the ;lost the changing room' stuff. But I have a feeling it is more down to simple economics, we have a finite amount of cash and we have two good, if not better, loosehead options who are younger, and a few young prospects coming through too. So the money is better spent on bolstering weaker areas. It is a real shame, but it is the nature of the beast when in a professional sport.

Disapointing about Phil John, great servant to the club, maybe his agent was looking for an unrealistic salary for a guy, as you say, is now probably third choice.

You don't seem to be going with the coach has lost the dressing room theory, so do you have any insight into why the Scarlets players seem to have lost all motivation?

I try to wait and see. One or two good win/s does not mean the team are world beaters, and likewise with poor performances don't mean you have fallen apart. I think we try to find too much drama in things.

Against the blues we were tactically lacking, and also a bit arrogant of the back of the win at the library. Against Glasgow we hung in for 50ish minutes, despite having a pretty crappy build up to the game. I still think we will be the only Welsh in the rcc, and I still think we will make the playoffs.

I was saying to a work mate that you have to feel sorry for Robinson to a point. He was talked up as the heir apparent to Shane, back when he was playing Under 20s, and even when he got his first cap for Wales. But things just didn't pan out for him, and now he's retiring at only 23 he hasn't really had a chance to show if there was any mileage in the hype or not.

The Scarlets have plenty of strength in depth on the wings to cope with Harry Robinson's retirement. The likes of Steff Evans, Liam Williams, DTH van der Merwe, Tom Williams, Hadleigh Parkes, Johnny McNicholl, Ioan Nicholas and others will be available to be selected on the wings next season (hopefully).

Steff and Liam are fullbacks, Parkes is a centre, Tom Williams is a journeyman, McNicholl has not joined yet, DTH has a major injury and I regret I don't know who Ioan Nicholas is. So for their most important game of the season they are playing three fullbacks!

Shame about Harry, but lacked both pace and any semblance of a defensive game so I was expecting him to be released this summer anyway. If they get DTH fit and keep him at the club, him McNicholl and Liam will be a strong back three but they clearly need to recruit a back up wing to cover inevitable injuries.

Well done to the Scarlets, deservedly finished top Welsh region but have limped over the line against a very poor Dragons side.

Well done also to Shingler who has shown what could have been if he had managed to stay fit this season. Until Collins got injured the Scarlets looked red hot, but (see my post above) the Scarlets cupboard is bare of wings at present so Gareth Owen (who lacks pace at centre) ended up on the wing again.

I don't think that they will have enough left in the tank to help the Ospreys by troubling Munster next week. To be honest with you, I suspect the Scarlets will be glad to see the season end so that they can regroup for next year.

Seagul, how can you give up like that, if you win and deny Munster a losing bonus point, and we beat Ulster (and we will) you will finish in the play offs and we will qualify for RCC. There is still plenty to play for.

TR, we haven't a bad one either, especially in the long term, and he showed it today when he was put in his correct position of outside centre.

Well done also to Shingler who has shown what could have been if he had managed to stay fit this season. Until Collins got injured the Scarlets looked red hot, but (see my post above) the Scarlets cupboard is bare of wings at present so Gareth Owen (who lacks pace at centre) ended up on the wing again.

I don't think that they will have enough left in the tank to help the Ospreys by troubling Munster next week. To be honest with you, I suspect the Scarlets will be glad to see the season end so that they can regroup for next year.
Seagul, how can you give up like that, if you win and deny Munster a losing bonus point, and we beat Ulster (and we will) you will finish in the play offs and we will qualify for RCC. There is still plenty to play for.

Wayne the Scarlets struggled to beat the Dragons who were very poor. You really think they will beat this Munster side who thrashed Leinster today at Thormund?

TR, we haven't a bad one either, especially in the long term, and he showed it today when he was put in his correct position of outside centre.

Wayne who are you suggesting is best at outside centre?

Seagul, how drunk are you Ulster thrashed Leinster today, and Edinburgh lost to Munster in Cork YESTERDAY, and IMO were very unlucky to do so, as in the tight they were much the better team.

You beat us at the liberty, whilst we beat Munster in cork. Previous matches mean nothing, its just 80 minutes and that's it

If you watched the game you would know who I was talking about.

It certainly wasn't Tyler Morgan, but if he had been playing then everybody would have been talking about him Smile. As for Scott, why don't the Scarlets just put him at 13? He thrives in more space like he did today in the wider channels. He has the pace, power and skill to exploit it better than any other Welsh 13 - why we persist on putting a centre that can't pass there (JD2) I don't know. Roberts is the best 12 in the NH - perhaps JD2 should compete for that position and leave the 13 jersey to Williams, Morgan and Watkin. It will be interesting to see how Pivac approaches this next season.

The outside centres were Warren and Parkes, so which one are you talking about?

Yes TR, and for Seagul's benefit I didn't say he was the best one, yesterday obviously the best centre on view was Scott, pure unadulterated class.

The Scarlets have confirmed duo Gareth Owen and Tom Williams have signed new contract extensions to keep them at the west Wales region.

To be honest I think we have announced everyone who is leaving already (bar accademy kids), so any player whose contract was due to expire end of the season will have their extensions announced in drips (but I think they are all pretty much announced now).
