I think Rhys Patchell is unlucky not to be in the squad. He's had a very good season overall in my opinion. Maybe they've discriminated against him because he's a Welsh speaker.

They have a contractual commitment to Anscombe who despite being at best a Wales fringe player has just picked up a new NDC. WRU Coaches wanted Patchell to play 15 so that Anscombe could play 10 for Cardiff, that's why he left to play for the Scarlets. Unfortunately Anscombe is at best a fine day 10 who looks good when is side are well on top and poor when under any pressure. Probably explains why he was playing 15 in NZ and they weren't too concerned to see him leave.

It sounds like you're describing Patchell to be fair, who is now in the Wales squad to play 15 which I think is his best position. Blues shifted him because he was erratic. Anscombe has had a few poor games but I don't think he's down and out just yet. He's in good form right now.

Jake Ball and Rob Evans are out with injuries so we're looking light on the LH side and at even lighter at lock. Lee is to under-go a scan to show the extent of his knee injury. The only way I can see us winning both games is if we borrow Wayne Pivac.

McBride is on record as saying this is NOT a development tour, if not why is Gareth Thomas selected as the replacement Loose Head prop for Rob Evans, when he is patently barely better than Welsh Premiership standard, I know he is getting on a bit but Paul James is far better, especially in the tight. There surely are better options at the other Regions as well, just have to hope neither Nicky Smith or Wyn Jones suffer an injury especially NOT before the 2nd Test against Samoa.

I wonder if they'll call up an additional lock forward too, or beg Davies not to have the summer off.

I think Wales should win comfortably against RGC 1404. I wouldn't be surprised if they beat RGC 1404 by over a hundred points. However, if RGC 1404 do beat Wales then they will deserve to be in the Pro12 IMO.

This is exactly the sort of game where Wales will struggle! A scratch Wales side, coming from disparate regional outfits and coaching systems, being brain washed into playing the robotic current 'Welsh Way' (crash, bang, wallop). It has car crash all over it. Will probably be a very close first half and Wales will pull away in the 2nd half when the pro fitness levels kick in.

Apologies for the negativity!

Also seeing as the only other wingers in the squad are Steff Evans (who could do with a rest after two big weekends), and Cuthbert i guess playing a centre (who has only played a handful of games this season) on the wing isn't such a bad idea.

At lot of people on the paddock at Dave Parade believe that wing might be Tyler Morgan's best position. Seeing as McBryde has chucked him in at 13 it's obvious he hasn't watched him this season.

Jamie Roberts - "I'm stoked for the Scarlets lads. It's not easy to win a domestic title and they've achieved something quite remarkable, everyone in Welsh rugby is hugely proud of them - even as a Cardiff lad I'm saying that! So it's important they feed into what we're trying to achieve here. Test rugby is a bit different to domestic rugby. There are subtle differences there, but certainly those lads can come in and give us a lot of energy and smiles on faces."

Is it just me or does anyone else read that as "they won a domestic competition playing running rugby, and thats nice. This is international rugby though, so its important they come in and change to our ways" ??

Something like that, so surely fans aren't the only ones concerned with amateurs like McBryde.

I would like to see Rhys Patchell play at 10 against Tonga and Samoa. I know Sam Davies had a great start to the season but overall Patchell has had a better season, IMO.

Hmm. I do rarely post in the international forum, but seeing as this would be an awesome time for a certain gentrified chap from the extreme north of the Cardiff City region to come on here and admit he's been talking absolute bullish5t for years about the gap between regional and semi pro, letting someone else have a go, talent being produced in the Prem, etc. I couldn't resist.

You're the only one I know to think that. He looked a lot better tonight. If he's to continue his development then he needs better players around him more often.

He could be a rolls Royce of an outside centre but there is no way he has the pace for an international wing, come on.

I tend to agree with Stone. Players tend to move inside, rather than outside. He started as a centre for a reason. If he was 'wing quick' I think he would have featured there more at age grade, etc.

I don't think he'll be playing wing at international level, I'm just reiterating what I've heard from a few people. He's regressed badly this season but the same could be said for most of our team. BTW I don't think he's any less quick than Allen from what I've seen.

He's pacy but I don't think he's explosive or agile enough for wing, and his other talents would be wasted there. Bit like he's wasted on us.

Little disappointed that Griffiths is only on the bench and Tyler Morgan doesn't even make the squad. It seems a little contradictory that Team Wales have ignored Navidi for so long and now finally use him. Pretty happy with the team though, from a neutral point of view.

Is Giles injured?

The back line doesn't actually look that bad really. When you think that Steff Evans is the only new cap there, and he was the top try scorer in the Pro12, there should be no excuses for the backs to fail to perform.

However I am really concerned about the pack. No lock on the bench, and a back row/lock starting. I guess the theory is Aaron Shingler, or Griffiths, can step into the second row if needed. But to me it seems like we are putting out a bit of an open rugby type back five forwards, which may not be the approach for the PI sides.

How much are they gonna mess around with Ollie Griffiths?! He's an outstanding open side by has been played at 8 this season a number of times. Surely he can't be asked to play lock now as well?! He's 3 inches shorter than Jamie Roberts!

Thought one of our locks Beard or Thornton would have at least made the 23 Griff, preferably Beard, not at all surprised that Baldwin is totally out of the 23, has only had one or two decent games at any level since the New Year. Expected Cuthbert and Evans to keep Keelan out of the team, but not Cory off the bench, tough game coming up, I wouldn't mind betting there will be a few injury replacements for the following weeks game against Samoa.

I think with this team McBryde will be trying his best to play like the Scarlets. Way to go McBryde, steal someone else's blueprint after spending years in the job! I'm not sure our defence is good enough to play that way, but obviously they don't rate Tonga at the set piece, etc.

Anyone see something I don't in Seb and Aled Davies? If we're doing our usual thing of capping a rookie then it probably should have been Beard at lock. I also imagine Shingler will be covering 2nd row.

My point was mainly just about his height (Griffiths). Maybe you don't need to be 6'5" plus in the 2nd row, but 6'1" seems tiny for that position. Has he ever played there? Will he be good pushing in the scrum from 2nd row. He's quite diminutive really. In the Neil Back mould of back rowers. It's a big ask for him to play 2nd row, even as cover IMO. So, like others, I'm surprised someone like Beard isn't on the bench.

I find it odd that Cory Allen has gone from being frozen out at the Blues to being on the bench for Wales. It will be a huge season for him next year to make it as a potential international, or to just drift off to semi pro level like so many before!

Dan Baker on an NDC and not even in the squad, Scott Baldwin on an NDC and not in the 23, he wouldn't even be in my Ospreys 23 on this seasons form.

My point was more to do with Thornton being a lock and us needing a lock, rather than the NDC thing.

Was thinking more that they were put on them young due to being promising talent, and this being their chance. Baker and Baldwin are known variables.

That and the players starting are in much better form than Baker and Baldwin - I know, the fact that they've selected form players is still a shock to me too. I was sure Jenkins would start at 7 though.

What a shame, I did not notice this either, spending too much time thinking about the Lions.

On a positive note, the kid is very young and I have no doubt that his chance will come around again.

Hmmm, did not notice this either, obviously aimed at moi. Rolling Eyes

Perhaps we could have gauged this better if we had Wales playing against the best side from the prem not the 4th best. Or alternatively we could have put a prem select side against the Welsh team.
