Sam Warburton absence from Six Nations nothing to worry about, IMO

Even though Sam Warburton is predicted by medics to miss the entire Six Nations, I don't think this is anything to worry about. This is because I think Wales have a lot of strength in depth in the open side flanker position. As far as I know Justin Tipuric, Josh Navidi, Thomas Young, James Davies, Will Boyde, Nic Cudd, Ollie Griffiths, Ellis Jenkins are all Welsh Qualified specialist open sides who are healthy. Also, Taulupe Faletau, Dan Lydiate and Aaron Shingler are not specialist open sides but have all played open side for Wales in the past. I'm sure there are other players available that I haven't mentioned as well.

I personally want to see Will Boyde or James Davies starting at open side against Scotland because I think the experience they will get from playing international rugby will help the Scarlets when they return to the region.

I have said it once, and I will say it again.

It's time for Sam to call it a day before he does some serious damage to himself.

However, if Sam Warburton will be absent that obviously will be a loss and I wish him a speedy recovery.

As per no one really interested in your opinion

Double and Winning Lions skipper and 6 Nations winning skipper Sam Warburton is one of the greatest players the UK has ever seen.

Hurrah! At last you made a joke that is actually funny. Congratulations.
