I’d take Corey back if he was available all that being said.

We, as supporters, have to trust our coaches/management to get more decisions right than they get wrong. What is certain is that there will only be one heir to Foxy & currently young Joe Roberts looks the best bet.
And of course Corey allegedly “felt “ English and Jac seems to have deemed himself an Osprey follower with his family. All a bit hard to grasp personally but it was their choice. Morgan was clearly the biggest known loss as he has already burst through with us but Baldwin was way down the success list when he decided to leave us. Can’t wait now for next season.

Yeah I think i’m over the disappointment of Corey Leaving, we all thought he was the heir apparent to Foxy but its not to be. I think had he stayed in Wales he’d have been capped by now. But we have Bleddyn and Tyler Morgan, they are more than capable of getting into the Wales team in the upcoming season(s).
I’m hoping with Peel at the helm our attack will improve consistently.

One makes one bed so one lays in it ! Not bothered in all honesty. 
I still hope he does well. Always like seeing our academy players do well even if it’s elsewhere. 

Players usually take a while to settle in at Exeter as they’re so well drilled and have very high standards. As an aside, Exeter Chiefs website in particular their squad page is excellent. Long detailed write ups on players and in-depth up to date stats. Puts ours to shame.

Good post Sospan. I, as many on here know, championed Corey while he was with us. I do not profess to know what his situation is at Exeter but I would imagine that he will have learnt a lot from his time there. His decision to leave the Scarlets, based on our midfield selections since, was for me totally correct. On his form before he left us he would, on merit, be our starting 13.
I agree, I was very very excited to see what Corey could do for us and was disappointed he left. I would imagine Exeter is one of the best places for a young player to learn their trade.

That said I also have very high hopes for young Joe Roberts and I hope he gets a good crack at it next year.

Tbh he took a brave move going to
A side with such a strong squad and it looks like it hasn’t come off for him. Wouldn’t shock me to see him back in wales with the dragons or ospreys in a years time. He is a good player maybe not as good as he thought he was though!

My honest opinion RR is we would have not done any worse with Tom Rogers at 15, Conbeer at 11 & Tomi Lewis at 14. Think of the money we would save. Any recruitment made should be NWQ to mix with our young prospects. Spend our biggest bucks on coaches and a new 2nd row. Costelow must start at 10 until Rhys is fully fit. 
Seems Tomi had a bad knee injury, was out for season from October. Hope he comes back strong!

Agreed,GPR.,and these boys need to be backed now.I suspect any new coach will notice that the emperor hasn't been wearing any clothes in mid-field,too,and will cease to favour mediocrity.

Down to a side like say quins or newcastle to play every week would be a better bet for him

Or even stay with the Scarlets!!! However the way selection has continued at 12/13 this season he would probably haven't got any more time at 13.
