I shall feel a lot happier to see players like Blade Thompson ,Foxy and Cubby on the training ground and indeed Patch . Lot of long term absences there and their capacity to return worries me ( possibly Patch excepting )

Yeah I do would like to hear the latest on Jonathan Davies, James Davies and Blade Thompson. There was a interview between Jon Davies and Brian O'Driscoll and Jon said he was recovering well in rehab. Glenn Delaney has also said he's progressing well. We might not see him for the derbies in August, but perhaps in September onwards. 

It's very quiet with regards to Blade which is worrying. James Davies, I'm sure I've read somewhere, is getting there. Perhaps these three and Rhys Patchell are all training together going through their last bits of recovery, as Glenn said players are training in small groups currently. 

Rhys was out kicking before games before lockdown so I guess he's ahead of the others in his recovery.

lack of communications coming out of the region is quite worrying. there is stuff going out on twitter and facebook but very limited and not actually asking any queries put on them. 
are the staff back from furlough? other regions at the moment seem to be further ahead of us with communications

And what sort of shape is Samson in? He's a vital cog in our forward effort but was held back quite a bit by injury last season.

Yes great to see. WOL a few days ago said Foxy probably not ready (ready to be risked?) for the forthcoming 2 derbies. But the way they said it gave hope that he would be fully firing come the start of next season (if not the QF v Toulon) - but this was WOL so ......

Indeed Ffidel - both Samson & Rob had quiet seasons for them. Hiccups maybe from not making Japan squad. Both need to hit the ground running and make a statement especially against Toulon.

Good article here on injury risks following this lay off. Cites NFL & Football as ones where injuries have stacked up...

In the NFL example, a pay dispute meant players were unable to access club facilities for 136 days, with pre-season camps subsequently cut from 14 weeks to just 17 days.

In the first 12 days in camp, 10 players ruptured Achilles tendons (a four-fold increase) and the number of injuries recorded within the first month of return was more than double the average usually seen over an entire season.

Try not to be worried and you'll be fine. Wink

While it’s obviously a worry I do think the league are handling it well with 7 weeks build up (not sure how much of that will be contact training.) However considering that is about the same amount of time as the internationals get for a normal pre-season I don’t believe it should be a huge problem.

Well Foxy has already posted an IG photo of him changing in his car at the Parc so hes defintely in training of some sort. Blade may as well retire if hes still not right after all this time sadly.
How we can have players still unfit after this length of time baffles me a bit, it suggests a chronic problem that will result in retirement being brutally honest.

If Blade's contract is not up, and the player himself doesn't want to retire, then unless the medics state that continuing to play could cause further serious damage to his health, I think all we can do is to wait for his contract to end.
Presumably if we thought he could carry on we wouldn't have signed Kalamafoni, who, unfortunately has also had concussion issues in the past.

 I agree - particularly with regard to blade.  He had concussion issues in his first season and in this just gone , he’s really suffered.  I thought he was out of contract this summer. I really fear that he’s finished - I hope I’m wrong but we’ve had no positive update .

Just watched a Scarlets Facebook interview with Glenn where he said it was exciting that there a few players who were long term injured that are now fit to play. No names mentioned though, but there is nothing wrong with playing your cards close to your chest when long term injured frequently pick up niggles when they return to training and with derbies coming up it's always good to keep the other regions guessing.

He also missed a fair chunk of his last season with the Hurricanes with concussion.

He’s not finished
Hope not but it would be nice of the club to give us some titbits about his wellbeing.
