More or less as expected.

Shame - he seemed keen to join us and looked good.

Accept that we have 2 new 10's arriving and he would again probably be struggling for game time.

Thanks for his efforts.

I would have liked him to stay.
His kicking out of hand was very good, and some of his passes to the line were superb.
Two of his well timed passes, one to Teo, and one to Heem, led to two of our tries.
Thanks for his efforts, and good luck back at dragons.
Maybe we will see him in Blue and Gold in a years time?

Not easy to work out this one - stated - '“What I think he was saying (to you) was that he had an option to be released.

“But as far as Warriors are concerned he is a player who is on loan. That’s the end of it.”

Interpretation by me would be - Dorian decided to stay with present terms as 'having an employer / paycheck' and Solomons decided Warriors had sufficient players at 10 for next season.

Fairly close call and feel for Dorian as I think he did a really good job over the recent weeks

Amazing really, can't find a 10 for years and 3 come along at once!

I'm sad to see Jones going, but not at all surprised given who we've signed.

The thing I liked about Dorian was that I hardly noticed him, which for me is a good thing for a 10. If I had have noticed him, it would have been for the wrong reasons. He seemed to make good decisions and the back line seemed to flow well.

I'd like to wish him good luck back at Dragons and hope he gets his chances.

We have only signed Duncan Weir on a years contract haven't we ?

Yes, but we have Jono Lance and let's not forget the still burgeoning Jamie Shillcock.

And Jones only has a year left on his Dragons contract.Coincidence?

Roll up! Roll up! Get your conspiracy theories here!

Whatever you do, do it safely!

From what I've seen of both Lance and Jones, Lance is the better player in a Worc team. Lance was brilliant vs Tigers. I think Lance will be starting 10 at the beginning of the season at least. That would leave Jones battling with Wier for the bench and on his day Wier is an Int 10.

Probably doesn't make financial sense atm. Especially as the club can probably negotiate a new contract with Heathcote that would be more availability/injury driven.

Having said all this Jones has been just what we need and we owe him a great deal. Was great to see Shilly come on with no pressure and just play too!

Makes sense so none of the 10s get too unhappy if they're not playing, and we can potentially call upon him via loan if injuries do strike. Wouldn't be surprised if we signed him permanently after his contract is up as well.

What’s Lance’s kicking % does anyone know?

Supposedly he was recovering from an injury when with us, hence why his kicking wasn't great and his style looked pretty unwieldy.

Lance was brilliant for us, and I can't wait to see a midfield of Hougaard, Lance, Mills, Teo. Given a run of games together, that's top 4 quality. Mind you, Arr, Weir, Beck, Venter isn't bad either.

Shame to see Jones head back, but it's good to know he's a player that fitted in well and seemed to enjoy himself. As others have said, we may see him back here. The other positive is that between him and Adams, we are starting to look like an attractive proposition for Welsh players stuck on the bench for the regions. We're not too far away and can offer a different league.
