I think we have to be careful how we play this one out because I think Reffell will go at some point soon,to lose both would be criminal!
Even with taking Reffell out the group, we still have a strong lot coming up.

Nothing has been confirmed yet; not even Clifford to Exeter. We'll see what happens.

Do we know how long Reffell is under contract for? I suppose if it's not just this year, it will be next year. You have to wonder whether Gatland's law will remain once the coaching set up changes in Wales.

Could you imagine if we lost O'Connor, Evans, and Reffell this summer? That would be a big failure.

All depends on who comes in
Say
Kwagga smith - O'Connor
Taylor Gough - Will Evans
Sam Eveleigh - Reffell

and on the whole wouldn't be too upset.

Yes but are Gough or Eveleigh as close to GP level as Reffell and Evans are,it's still about now as well as the future. And will they be as good too? Im not really clued up on the young fellas mate

For me losing Evans would be pretty tragic. Yes we can replace him as a player, but it would show that we haven’t learnt from letting Thacker go. We need to be keeping these academy players, especially ones with as much potential as Evans. No excuses if he left and would show a total lack of planning. Guy is 31 and won’t be around for many more seasons.

Losing two young players who have come into the senior set up and shown good performances and an ability to step up to this level with two young lads who are yet to play for the first team would be bad.

Kwagga Smith is also likely to be expensive so BOC plus Reffell's wages are likely to be used up on him. Wouldn't free up cash to strengthen elsewhere.

You don't know how they will perform unless they are played.

With the academy starting to produce it will mean some academy products will be leaving as well.

Hopefully not, but with Hardwick and Costelow coming up something might have to give potentially.
Just pointless what if's but something to keep in mind.

Who is the better prospect out the two RB? I've saw Hardwick a few times but not Costelow

Costelow from my view of him at School, but remember he is Welsh, so hope playing Glynn doesn't hasten his leaving. I think he fits the old welsh classic FH mould. (Got to go now or will miss the start.)

Yeh Costelow is the better 10.
IMO best 10 we have had coming through since Ford.

Not sure what Glynn has in terms of hastening his leaving (Which I doubt he will for a while), Costelow the one who has covered for the A team already and he was the one who started in the U18 league final last season.
