Jackman really can't settle on a hooker mind.

Just saw Simon Thomas tweet Leon Brown has suffered a second concussion. If that's so, I wonder if that means the first wasn't really dealt with properly?

Are you sure ? I've read it that he suffered a concussion so he hasn't been picked INCASE he suffers another.

He was never given a fair crack of the whip this season. Kirchner a better ten, apparently.

We can add AoB to the official list of players good enough to play for much better teams but not good enough for Banned Snackman. Shame, good player.


Superb clap Made me chuckle!


But on a serious note, yes I was thinking the same. And I expect he’ll do quite well down there. Bet he gets a good bit of game time.

Just another thing that makes me doubt Jackman. Being reminded of that Kirchner decision (that nobody at the Dragons has really explained) makes me sad.

Then tonight I saw (thanks to another tweeter mentioning who follows him) he follows Owen Robins on twitter. Now I’ve realised I’m never going to like him, even if he sweeps the league etc next season. To be fair, he didn’t totally start too well thanks to what he did to Ryan Jones (Ireland v Wales 08), but I did try and give him a chance Wink

Not too often I disagree with this guy but he's trying to tout for season tickets here. However:

Wales call for Dragons duo Hewitt and Wainwright

Well deserved, even if it is on the back of Gatland's mindgames with the English prem

I'm going to put that down to Jackman wanting to have a full understanding of Welsh rugby. But Owen Robins is beyond all human understanding.

I’d have hoped he might’ve realised his mistake by now Very Happy. Then again, that would be admitting to a mistake, which doesn’t usually happen.

Delighted for Hewitt and Wainwright, though I suspect they won’t play much/at all. Hopefully they train well and make future squads now. Plus we might as well sling in a bid for Adams and get him home to maintain his international ambitions ha.

Hewitt's been called up before once but had to pull out (I'm sure that's right), so hopefully as you say he takes the chance to show them what he can do. Wainwright's been tireless this season so it's great for him that he's been called up, even it's not ideal how it's come about.

Aye, think Hewitt finally got a call up last November but went down with an injury.

I really hope we put him in space more often next season. He doesn't need much!

He's like an eel the way he gets out of tackles.

This is hilarious and sad at the same time. If the Dragons can outbid the Blues to sign a reject like Ashley, no doubt it would be seen as a success.

The Dragons outbid their owners to sign Moriarty, all without any money in the bank to yet pay for it.

We don’t need him. We only need to play one lock next season, with Nansen covering both lock positions easily. Hill can have a well earned rest too.
