Blaine Scilly would be a great signing good in the air and a real fighter. I'd be surprised if Travis was let go, he was struggling for a long time but since Christmas has been pretty good I think. Same with Lou Reed if he does go to Newport we will be desperately in need of a second row.

Tomos Francis prop
Roberts is all but agreed......but he is now thinking of studying again in Oxford so who knows!
Delve is an interesting one we clearly need another 8 Manoa is class but an impact player at best, has been offered to us the Turks and Bristol Welsh by his agent.
Also an as yet unnamed SH back, is the Lee-Lo deal still on? Also a lot of the above clear out especially Tavis was Hammetts doing, had DM and PJ been in charge from the offset George Watkins would still be here

I love this time of year

Dont have a problem with his age. Ideal mentor figure.

But yeah, we do want to make sure we dont have another Mitchell situation, where the poor guy just cant stay fit.

We were in for Delve in 2010 when he would have been a fine signing.I would be concerned we already have on older number 8 in Vosawai-assuming he is staying.His role seems to be mainly from the bench.

I thought he was older than 32 and still would have been happy with the signing, they don't play alot of games in Japan so is his only playing 10 down to injuries/game management/games changed due to weather (they do that a lot as well) or has there only been 10 games?

don't worry as i pressed send my seach on another window gave me my answer, basically all of the above, but him, Manoa and DM rates Ieuan Jones highly, not bad for our number 8's

Mitchell won't retire, you will see a lot more players becoming fit and ready now training has changed and its not just Team Wales players being looked after

He will be 33 by the start of next season.It seems to me that budget factors mean we struggle to attract good players in their prime years-say 26-30.Personally I would prefer to concentrate below rather than above this age group if we are serious about building for the future.Robin Copeland was signed at 24, although he moved on after 2 years I think he improved and was mainly a success.

I also think that Xavier Rush, although a fabulous player for the team, was a declining force at around that age, prior to his retirement through injury.

Rush would have been 32 the HEC semi year and 33 the Amlin winning year.

Nick Easter's 36.

Players are different.

Way I see it, James Sheeky is now 20, and will be 22 by the time Vosawai and (perhaps) Delve move on. Having spent a couple of years working with experienced No.8s.

I get what you say about 26-30year olds.... but who are the available 26-30 year old Welsh 8s?

Yes, good point, if we are looking for Welsh number 8.Don't know the current position with Ieuan Jones.

I take your point about Easter who is still at the top of his game.
I would argue that Rush magnificent performance in the Amlin was not followed up much when we re-signed from Ulster.
It's just personal opinion-Jones, Rees, Jenkins, Hoeta, Vosewa are enough over 30 forwards for me.

Hmm I think Ieuan Jones will be staying at the Ospreys. Tandy likes the guy a lot! And he's a lot safer in contact than Morgan Allen. Morgan Allen's meant to be off to Scarlets. Looking ahead to next season, I think it's paramount that we sort 12 out. Allen should be playing there week in week out. He's built like a 12, and if he continues to fill out, will be an excellent one! However there's another huge lump in the academy, Harry Davies. He's classed as a "wing" currently, but at 6 foot 4 and bigger built than Allen he'll move to centre by the time he plays for the Blues.

You're getting a good 'un in Scully. Gutted to see him leave Tigers, but the USA connection makes a lot of sense. Look after him well - great guy, fine player who'll bring a lot.

From speaking to a few Leicester fans, exactly what we need!

Apparently he's the best guy they have/had for chasing down the high ball and is great in aerial challenges, two things we really haven't had for a while.

I'm really excited about this signing, from what I've heard he brings a ferocious 'never say die attitude', can play wing or fullback and is solid in defense.

Leicester fans seem genuinely upset at losing him too, which is a great thing for us. Could be a fan favourite here.

Jamie Roberts is rumoured to be off to Harlequins!

Interesting if true as I didn't think their style of play would fit with Roberts direct style but on the other hand it might be a positive move to develop a more expansive game for him.

I'd think it was more to do with the opportunities London offers him to continue his medical studies in some way. Bear in mind also that the salary cap in England now allows up to £2m to be spent on 'marquee' players.
Quins would seem a natural fit.

Expect all to go, Tavis is starting to find his feet so he will be number 2, and they really rate this kid in the under 20's and 7's.
Could see Andrews maybe getting another 2 year deal if Francis move didn't come off

Really? All of them?

You probably need 4 scrum halves these days so i sort of expected jones to stay. He cant cost that much.

Rees leaving - we'd have to find a replacement. Unless they really do rate Belcher highly.

Andrews... well, even if we dont sign Francis we'll need other tightheads.

Filise, Breeze & Humberstone.

I don't see any of this three (Filise has been great for us, but will be 38 in May and has clearly been past it for a couple of years) getting new deals.

Of the 3 you list only Andrews is worth a contract. His scrummaging is poor but he should last night what he adds elsewhere. Tomos Williams is already a superior player than Lewis Jones.

We need 2 locks and first choice hooker & first choice TH. With only 2 OS's places left (unless we get a timeserver) I'm going for Snyman & Francis as the Welsh options.

You always hear this but in reality, there arent many teams around that play fewer overseas players than us. On the weekend we had one in the starting XV and one on the bench. It isnt overseas players that are the problem. The problem is more to do with @#$%& Welsh players and @#$%& Welsh coaches.

That said, I think a number of players from the academy will start featuring next season.

I would hope that its not Sean Holley, because he is a snide article( as my grandfather would say) and that is the last thing that we need, although someone like Anscombe or Howarth would be ok as long as they can start at the start of july. We need a D.O.R. to start then as he should have the time to run a ruthless rule over our squad and ditch the dead wood. He must get as many of our promising youngsters contracted to us like Dillon Lewis and Ellis Jenkins( he should be already; he probably is but I am not too sure-sorry if I've missed it). We do need to do this, otherwise we will lose them and regret it afterwards like Rhys Gill and Cory Hill. Maybe, we should consider the approach of the dragons in using young talent, because their young squad had something to prove over our elderly and been there done it lot. I suppose I'm suggesting a new culture in that you can buy players but you cant buy a team. These are only suggestions and they may or may not be accepted, but I'm only the piano player. However I, like many long term Cardiff supporters am not prepared to take much more of the sort of@#$%&that has been on display for the last several seasons. I've got to the stage where if Cardiff Blues are on television, I record it and then look at the result before I watch it and delete it if they lose without watching.

I can't see Sean Holley as next coach, if we're getting a coach from Bristol then I'd much rather Danby Wilson, especially if we're hoping to bring through some of the promising youngsters.
Mark Anscombe is currently staying in Cardiff with Gareth so seems to be the front runner.

I'm more concerned about who'll be our new defence coach, if we can sort our defence out we could be half way decent.

 
Re: Transfers 2015/16

15/04/2015 14:50
Anscombe knows the competition and has done well in it. He's also - presumably - been following the team quite closely since his son joined and will already have ideas on what needs to happen.

Plus we were apparently after him previously. He's an obvious choice.

The big issue however.... how will this affect the whole Patchell/Anscombe dilemma. Much as I dont want to stir that pot again.

 
Re: Transfers 2015/16

15/04/2015 16:26
I'm with you in hoping Anscombe; I'm of the opinion that r/e Patchell that Patchell/Anscombe dilemna is not the way to approach it, as I believe that Gatland should be looking for a long term replacement for Halfpenny and to me as a simple soul Patchell is the man. If he goes for it, then sign him up on an extension, because he could make the number 15 jersey his own-definately at the Blues, because if Tuculet goes(and I think he will) then Cardiff will be looking for a replacement and that could be Patch.

Oh don't blame the guy in the slightest, the timing is just unfortunate. He seemed to genuinely enjoy the club this season despite the poor form. If it weren't for the new selection policy I would have liked our chances of retaining him

If he doesnt go to Super rugby, the new regs will make him very valuable as he cant be called up for internationals. He'll be able to make a fortune in France.

we have a prop on trial with us at the moment apparently. Not sure about much else, but likely to be nWq.

So he can't be in contract with anyone else. That's not massively encouraging. Another journeyman to add to our squad of journeymen.

A journeyman who can actually do his job properly would be a step up. If someone with potential is looking fo a contract, why not give him a trial? Better that than just dismissing him.

But I'll wait and see who he is before condemning or praising him.

And not necessarily NWQ, he might be a welsh qualified kiwi or aussie, turks recently signed a similar player after a trial.

Is it millard that decides if this trialist gets a contract ? Millard more a backs expert isn't he ?

we know our real need is for tight forwards partic tight head and lock. We've just failed to sign a world class centre (who would have been a bit of a luxury given the number of games he'd play). Maybe this guy will be a better journeyman than the rest of the journeymen we have but my point really is that we should be setting our sights much higher.

Agree not singing Jamie is a positive - spend cash where it's needed!

Just watched Lee-Lo play 30 mins against the sharks, really looking forward to this guy coming, look very good running with the ball and good defense.

Plus with Nonu and Smith at center for the Canes he's been limited to very little game time this season so he should be fresh when he gets to us.
