Dragons vs Edinburgh

Post by GavinDragon on Tue 22 Nov 2016, 11:20 am

First topic message reminder :

Getting this one in early as I am currently working my notice and rather bored.

This is a big game for us. We really need a win to carry momentum into what are two crunch, back to back games against Worcester in December. If we win, it could really set our season up. Lose, and it is another momentum killer.

Hoping for a big crowd. Kids go free. Although sadly I will not be in attendance due to me having to attend my nephew's birthday in Reading mad

This is the Gwent team I would like put out:-

1. Tom Davies (yes I think he has played well in both games he has started this year. Very effective in the loose)
2. Elliot Dee (who is back from injuri I believe)
3. Brok Harries
4. Rynard Landman
5. Matthew Screech
6. Lewis Evans (c) (on fire this season)
7. Ollie Griffiths
8. Ed Jackson (not been his biggest fan, but very much on form)

9. Sarel Pretorious
10. Angus O'Brien (let's hope it is the AOB who played against Connacht, not the Scarlets)
11. Adam Warren
12. Jack Dixon
13. Sam Beard
14. Ashton Hewitt
15. Carl Meyer

16. Rhys Buckley
17. Sam Hobbs/Phil Price (take your pick)
18. Craig Mitchell (never to be brought on)
19. Nick Crosswell
20. Harrison Keddie (carried well against Scarlets and Leicester)
21.Tavis Knoyle (I think Charlie Davies is injured?)
22. Arwel Robson (it will no doubt be on of Kingsley's boys sadly)
23. Tyler Morgan

Any Edingburgh fans on here? What sort of side can we expect from you?

Plus we would have to kick out Newport County, as the Football League won't allow them to play on that pitch. We would have to have the same style pitch as Liberty Stadium.

I'll stand up and be counted here. I reckon given the likely two marbles and a conker scenario vis the rental income from County, I'd say they were a net loss in terms of the contribution to the bread and butter business at Dave Parade and should be f***ed off, sharpish.

If (and it's looking likely they will) they get relegated, perhaps they might have to f themselves off back to Spytty, unless Dave is significantly cheaper. I guess the trouble is, it's them who have helped out with the pitch improvements so they might take some shifting.

I guess that's why you don't spend a fortune refurbishing a rented house. I wonder how much they were paying at Spytty?

We are at the moment, but when this sale goes through we will start leasing the ground I believe.
