Who do you think will be vaccinated? Entire population? Mandatory or discretionary?
Imo we will be back playing this year. This virus was again imo around several months before we went into lockdown. 


There is a need for some really hard research into when the virus arrived so that we can better understand how it has been spreading. French medical authorities seem to suggest that at least one middle aged man went down with it before Xmas although then they didn't then know what it was, or even that it was a new virus. There are similar stories that individuals from the UK and USA were also infected before the first detected case in China!

Our back 3 resources are :-

1st 23 quality at the moment :- Halfers, Liam, Jonny, Steff, Ryan
Other squad players :- Morgan Williams, Tomi Lewis, Tom Rogers, Prydie, Ioan.

For me I would love to see a big South Sea Island unit who would give us a point of difference but thats just me being picky. We seem well stocked with numbers at least - quality - time will tell. Just hope that when he is given his chance young Osian Knott is used at 12/13.

Indeed. 
It will all depend what will happen to international rugby. Me personally I can't see us having Welsh squad members much more than last season with extended AIs discussed, plus a 6Ns. With any luck we can have Johnny Mac back from Welsh duty but seeing that he covers more than 1 position plus he's a player that fits well with pivac style, he's ideal to bench. 

With TJs retirement on top of that I think we need an experienced back 3 player coming in. Someone along the lines of trevisos Ioane would be brilliant.

I know we all want centres and hopefully we will plug that gap, but let's rejoice in the fact that with the addition of Liam we have one of the, if not the best back 3 in Europe, we have quality at 10 and great 9's.

Depends how the season is structured. The hope is the season is played in blocks so that test rugby and domestic rugby isn’t played the same time. If they can’t come to an agreement on that then we will hardly see Wales players.

Listening to Will Greenwoods podcast and apparently the Irish teams have been told to prep for next season without their internationals, easier for them with their contract situation but may be a glimpse of where the focus will be next season.

If that's the case in Wales WRU need to post 100 percent of the wages, and our attention should switch from signing centres to signing back 3 players.

Would this mean central contracting by stealth?

they are paying 80 per cent now so they will dictate when players play
 
Tyler morgan can cover centre and wing I think
