We are now in a position where teams playing semi-pro rugby in the Welsh prem have better playing facilities than the supposedly professional outfit that are the Newport Gwent Dragons. The conditions that Rodney Parade were in on New Years day were unacceptable in today's professional environment.

Add to the fact that this entity is supposed to be representing pro rugby in Wales, yet continuously fail miserably, then serious questions need to be asked as to should we be putting up with another decade of failure. There is no excuse for the conditions the pitch was in. Yes I know that Newport FC play football on it as well, but Ospreys and Swansea share a pitch.

The region has failed to get suitable investment, they are predictably bottom of all teams except the Italians year on year, except that one time they finished above Cardiff Blues and celebrated that like a league win.

So, do we go another decade of embarrassment ? Do we keep letting this so called professional outfit fail year on year with no signs what so ever of improvement ? Or do we give another region a go ? Is it time now for North Wales, RGC1404, to be given a chance and Dragons get wrapped up ? Let's be honest here, any team could join the Pro 12 and be as affective as Dragons.

Right, now that I have gotten this off my chest, I will batten down the hatches, and await the usual, it's not our fault excuses and the WRU have shafted us lines.

It's a real shame, as Gwent as an area has a lot to offer Welsh rugby, but for me they have had their turn for over a decade now without reprisal, it's time to give somebody else a go.

You're welcome.

So again, point it out to me where I have said I want the Dragons to be disbanded. Go on. I know it is a challenge for you, but go ahead.

Or am I not allowed to ask the questions that I asked in that post ?

That does not mean I want it to happen. I want improvement, it does not look like it's happening, so a kick up the @rris is needed. The best thing to happen would be for Dragons to have an owner who will back them.

So again, you had a go at calling me on it, but you are wrong. Don't worry I will not hold it against you.Very Happy

Forgive me Dowlais, but if you didn't mean 'for me they have had their turn for over a decade now without reprisal, it's time to give somebody else a go', then why did you say it?

You seem to have some serious underlying issues. Very Happy

Also, if any of you want to see what a rude antagonising post is, see risca's above. OK

Difference is, I am not as touchy as some of our Newport based members on here, so I do not take it to heart. Very Happy

Put it this way LP, if you saw something failing year on year, with no signs what so ever of improvement, what would you suggest ?

I see the red bar brigade are out again. It always happens when you are about LP.

I do not have that option. Crying or Very sad

You could answer my question instead of constantly having a go at me though. OK

I'm going to leave this thread to the Scarlets fans now. If you want to explain to me how saying you want someone else to have a go doesn't mean you want someone else to have a go, post in on the Dragons thread.

Scarlets seem to be hitting a good patch of form
Treviso Edinburgh and Zebre in the run in.

Is Top four realistic, is home semi? or winning Pro 12?

I think top four is do-able, but I would settle for just remaining in the top 6. We have done well during the international period so far this season, and last, but I think this 6Ns may be a bit harder as I can't see us getting Aled Davies or Jake Ball back even if they are just holding tackle bags.

Dont Scarlets have Munster, Leinster, Ulster and Glasgow away coming up? And then end with the mighty O's at home Whistle

Tough ask to make the top four but wouldn't put it past them but cant see a home semi

Have to be aiming for Top 6 after the start to the season. Anything else is a bonus. Hopefully European Rugby might take its toll on those above around the Scarlets in the table.

We do have some hard away games coming up, but a few of those will be during the 6N period, so fingers crossed we can turn over one or two of them. Add in the Euro comps, where others may be pushing for silverware, we could get lucky. In a deam world, we will beat the Ospreys in the final game of hte season, to leap frog them, and set up another home game against them in the semi.

But still realistically, based on the three woeful losses in the first three weeks, reaching the RCC will be a result.

The turning point was when you managed to overturn a 14-20 half-time deficit to beat the Dragons 31-27.

If you can beat the Dragons at home, you can beat anyone. Wink

Post by international198 on Thu 16 Feb 2017, 8:23 pm

Scarlets team to face Zebre tomorrow night:

Scarlets: J Mcnicholl; T Williams, S Hughes, H Parkes (capt), DTH van der Merwe; D Jones, J Evans; W Jones, E Phillips, W Kruger, T Price, T Beirne, A Shingler, J Davies, W Boyde.

Reps: R Elias, L Garrett, N Thomas, T Phillips, J Macleod, A Davies, G Owen, S Evans

The Zebre defence will simply not be able to cope with Steff Evans if he comes off the bench, IMO. He's simply too quick, too elusive and too agile for the Italians. A good performance by Steff Evans tomorrow night will put huge pressure on the Welsh management to select him for the Scottish game.

J Mcnicholl for the scarlets had a poor game, he seems out of his depth even against Zebra. Scarlets forwards looked very good tonight showing high intensity throughout the game.

Mcnicholl is long overdue for a break, yes he dropped a couple of passes but he has played almost a year long season already after a full S15 then the ITM and now a regular in the Pro12 since the 1st week he arrived. I truly believe he will be as good a signing as Hadleigh Parkes has been. Just needs a proper break and pre season.

He definitely looked better as a wing though in my opinion.

Good solid win, it was impressive to see how the Wales call up gave Stef Evans even more confidence to try a few things. They didn't always come off, but he looked lively.

Tom Prydie is out of contract with the Dragons at the end of this season and they haven't offered him a new contract. Maybe the Scarlets could sign him to replace Liam Williams.

The Scarlets need to win tonight to finish in the Top 4 at the end of the season, IMO. Munster are very strong. The Scarlets will need a lot of luck.

Congrats Scarlets - deserved victory against Munster who seemed to leave the pitch after halftime. Scarlets walked through them for the bonus point win.

Laughably Bleyendal was made man of the match. Parkes and McNicholl had much better influence and impact.

That shakes up the table nicely with men in blue putting 50 on the Dragons at Rodney Parade. .

Ulster's game in hand and the following game against Trevino should give them 8-10 points. Scarlets are away at the RDS but they have a ten point lead on the Northerners this evening.

Ulster have two games in hand over Scarlets, both against Zebre

Game wasn't broadcast outside of Ireland, so I'm guessing that why there are no comments on the ref from Welsh posters.

I've seen the BBC highlights, and it looked like all the tries were good tries, for both sides.

Good thing is this puts us 16pts clear of the Blues in 7th place, with a max of 30pts available. With a game against Treviso at home still to come, and Edinburgh at home Dragons away also being probable wins. It looks like we should be in Europe next season.

You are in Europe for certain.

The only question is who are the top 4.

Ospreys beat Glasgow today and it is looking unlikely for Glasgow to make it.

Probably a head to head between Scarlets and Ulster but Munster and Ospreys could be sucked into it

Should be an interesting run in. Most top sides meeting each other at some point too. Just hoping that European tuns hamper the others, as otherwise I feel we will slip out of the top four right again.

Is it true you aren't fishing for a replacement for DTH, and are going to promote that U20? Impressed with Dan Jones lately btw, he's really flourishing under Pivac. Patch will no doubt be at 15 next season - I've said since day 1 that it's his best position.

I wouldn't advise. Scarlets seem unlucky enough with injuries as it is.

Pivac has said we are not actively looking for a replacement. As back three options, we have McNicholl, Steff Evs, Tom Williams, deputiesed by Conbeer, Baldwin, Nicholas, and Richard Smith. Also the likes of Parkes, Steff Hughes, Gareth Owen, Patchell and Aled Thomas capable of putting in a shift on the wing or at fullback if required.

I'm sure if a player becomes available, and cheap, that we would consider them. However I think we have more important areas of the squad to address.

Good news for the Scarlets. The impressive, skilful and inspirational youngster Rhys Patchell is due back from injury soon.
