You need to invest a further £100,000 in the squad to bring in mature quality mostly in the pack ( accepting that they will not be development players but just to get us well up the table and so boost gate and sponsorship income). Ideally I would have liked the club to move to Steboneath as well to “build “ up the spirit of a proper club house and build a club atmosphere. The Region doesn’t want to invest more in it plainly and it’s the board’s money not ours.

Complete agree… the front 5 are a real issue

Totally agree RR. Does anyone know how many of the Blues squad regularly turn out for the RFC?

the scarlets players not playing in the 23 wouldnt it be better for them to get game time with the clubs rather than just training?

In some cases for sure, but it's a damned if you do and damned if you don't scenario for me.

The Semi pro teams in the region (not Quins for some reason) play a stack of Academy and delvopment players by and large, and also it's a good platform for players making their way back from injury (Like Iestyn Rees, Tomi Lewis, Corey Baldwin, Dan Davis in the recent games).

The challenge is that just to give guys outside the Scarlets match day 23 a 'game' is riddled with risk of injury, and the Scarlets squad, already compromised with 25% of the squad usually injured ( which is standard) is compromised further.

I see the above as a different issue to the RFC larger playing squad challenge, it's well catalogued that the team is seriously under funded in comparison to other teams, including Quins and Drovers.

It’s the back 5 of the pack that’s the issue, that’s plain to see!

You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.

for how rugby working nowadays, should be really strange to have a 20yo talent playing in regional rugby and not higher level.
but regional rugby could be really good for players who lost their best form and can help youngsters with their experience
