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.

Heat of the moment, proud to be within 4pts at half time etc, so far more understandable/excusable

Or alternatively there's a huge drop in quality from our first-choice props to the rest.

It’s a strength in depth issue. Hopefully, recruitment, and experience (physically/mentally maturing) will help developing that depth.

At one point in the season we'd won more scrum penalties and scored more tries from driving lineouts than anyone else in the league. So it's definitely not a coaching issue. Ceri Jones has done really well with our pack, but you can't make a silk purse out of Dan Suter and Thomas Davies.

Anyone fancy having a stab at the best team we could put out next season, as it stands in terms of signings? I agree that the depth is/has been the issue. Forget what the exact figure is but modern pro rugby sides have something like 25-30% of their squad unavailable to injury, etc. throughout the season. So we need decent bench options too, obviously. But ignoring that for a moment what's the best we could put out next season on paper?

Harris, Dee, Brown, Nansen, Hill, Keddie (???), Griffiths, Moriarty, Williams, Lewis, Williams, Dixon, Morgan, Hewitt, Amos.

Bevington, Hibbard, Fairbrother, Landman (???), Benjamin, Other Rhodri, Robson, Henson.

That's just assuming Jackman won't have Henson first choice. Think I've missed a few maybe?

Cheers Risca, i think that’s looking a bit stronger than we’ve got and we have some impact on the bench (some!).

I think the back line needs some more cutting edge in the centres. Just not sure Dixon and Morgan are up to it. I always feel very underwhelmed by their performances. We need a more elusive inside centre than one in the Dixon mould, I feel. Maybe Henson then, if he’s saying he wasn’t a to play 12? But he’s starting to look a little old as tired now! But a ball playing IC might help bring Morgan into the game a bit more.

But even what has been seen on a youtube clip seems more positive than how Landman is now and Joe Davies. Not sure what’s happening with Screech.

Happy with Howells, if we have him fit.

I don't think we've treated O'Brien well at all, and it wouldn't surprise me if we pay for it when he plays for the Scarlets against us next season (you just know Pivac will play him in that game). How must he have felt seeing Kirchner selected at ten ahead of him?

I'm not overly surprised by those names to be honest. They don't jump out and scream 'awesome player, why are we letting him go'. But that's a lot of players to replace. Going to be an interesting few months.

Sarel Pretorius is probably the only one I'd keep if pushed, and even then he'd declined in his time with us (probably due to game plan/coaching). Maybe AOB too. I actually quite liked Liam Belcher, mainly as he seemed to score a few tries from rolling mauls! But perhaps a bit small for this level?

Jackman's going to have a serious amount of egg on his face if we don't improve a bit and at least become more competitive next season.  2 wins this year is beyond shocking.  Even last year which was another poor season we had quite a few more losing bonus points, if memory serves.  I looked it up for this year and we only have a few LBPs, meaning generally we've been soundly beaten.  Next season we've got to be targeting winning half our games, surely?

He can apply, as can I! But why would they give a job to someone who has had such a poor season at the Dragons? They've sacked the current coach due to the poor season they've had. They'll be going for someone with a bit more success under their belt.

So you're saying the hopes and dreams of a new system of rugby in Gwent are pinned on a bloke who isn't good enough to coach Connacht, the worst and most poorly funded team in Ireland.

I was being sarcastic to be honest. They just seem like direct replacements for squad fillers that have left, so net budget difference (for these two) will probably be zero.

Especially when uncle Bernard said our signings would be ready to go.

There we are though. I’m sure he knows best. I’m not sure either Dorian or Angus would be worse than Botica and Beard and Meyer worse than Loots.

Happy with Howells, if we have him fit.

I'll have to look at the 3 minute clip... Yeah Landman has steadily declined with us which is a pity. He was a superb player and leader in his first two seasons. I guess it's that demoralizing playing for Dragons, can't say I blame him.

Howells is a good player and can cover the back 3. I hope he's less injury prone nowadays.

That's quite a few LHs we've let go, I guess Bevington is in the hot seat Rolling Eyes - unless BJ sees Harris and Jarvis as a LH and they'd do a better job than Bevington. No surprises on the list really, except for Buckley and Beard - two squad players that I rate. I guess I rate Pretorious too. I don't rate AOB and am not really concerned about his feelings either, good riddance. Kirchner should be the incumbent full-back though, I've heard he isn't a 10.

Yeah pretty underwhelming, again. I thought maybe LV cup players at first, then I remembered that's not around next season.

We’ve just announced the signings of Jacob Botica and Tiaan Loots from RGC. Christ, that’ll get the other regions frothing at the mouth again.

Well, well.

And I am always being told that the Welsh Premiership is not good enough to get players for regional rugby. Very Happy
And, as I told you before, those pair are pro rugby players and were pro at RGC.

Did they call the End of Season "Awards Night" because no food was put on?

Yes, Dave, I would. But as harrowing as a man who banned puddings?

Another hot signing mind, well done BJ. Meanwhile some Irish are screaming at Munster for letting Grobler go, I guess I was right about him after all.

Nansen did look impressive in that clip but I think it was two years ago now. Hopefully he can still play at that intensity and rub off on some people. I think we lack carriers. Two that I can think of are Dee, Brown. Possibly Dixon. Is Griffiths considered a carrier?
