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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
