Hate to be that guy. But I don't see us beating anyone but Italy (hope I am wrong). We have some many front row injuries we get mullered in the scrum and we still can't defend mauls.

I think you will find that they were both touted as potential better choices, until it was pointed out that they were both injured. thumbsup

You have quite a selective memory! The Grays played together in all but the last 6N game last season, so were rightfully part of the Lions discussion at the time. Jonny played in the summer tour for Scotland, so wasn't injured. Richie was injured with a back problem so missed the tour.

Regardless of Lions debates, it is conceivable for things to change in International rugby in the space of a year for teams - since last 6N Toolis has shown he has what it takes to play at international level, and GIlchrist has regained his form and also shown he is a genuine option at international level.

If all were fit and on form I'd have both Grays starting but given the form of the Edinburgh pair it isn't a huge blow to lose him.

We have Scots on here all man sausage-a-hoop saying that they should beat Wales and will be very disappointed if they don't, more or less just writing Wales off, then we have English members coming on here calling the Welsh members trolls, I am almost to worried to type a re-post just in case I get accused of something, yet it is all the fault of the Welsh members.

You are surprised to see Scots with a bit of swagger considering we have won far more test matches in the last 18 months compared to Wales? I'm not sure why you think this is odd.

History is on the side of Wales but not much else.

Scotland are the more settled side with fewer injuries, granted our Front row has been decimated but Wales are missing arguably their best player (Faletau) and their first choice half backs and the Lions player of the series.

I could understand the panic if we relied on our Scrum, but Scotland's threat lies in counter attacking and multiphase attacking. We seldom score from first phase (despite our maul being very strong in the AIs) so losing our front row isn't as disasterous as some might think. It will no doubt give Wales a very handy platform considering Evans, Lee and Owens are brilliant.

However as I've said Scotland appear to have parity in the back 5 and will have a huge advantage from 9 to 15. Our try strike rate speaks for itself, as for Wales' try strike rate... picard Suffice to say the Scarlets are scoring tries but we all know that test match intensity is quite differant from the pro14 or European intensity.

No. Read some of the comments that our Scottish members have put on here. They are very similar to that. In fact some are worse.

Really, you honestly think this ? A huge advantage in the backs ?

This is a probable Welsh back line:-

Gareth Davies
???????? Could be one of Patchell, Williams or Anscombe
Scott Williams
Hadleigh Parkes
George North, if he is not injured
Steff Evans
Leigh Halfpenny


I'm sorry, but outside half aside, I do not see where Scotland have a huge advantage.

Surely Scotland are favourites for this one. At full strength it would be nip and tuck, with Wales balancing home advantage against our notorious slow start to any tournament. But Wales' injuries are pretty devastating - Liam Williams, Webb, Faletau, Warburton, JD2, Biggar by themselves take out most of our star quality (5 test Lions), then there's Jake Ball and Priestland, and others who may be available haven't been playing, like Moriarty, George North, Steff Evans. It will be a very makeshift team and Gatland will compound it by playing 'safe' and going to his tried and tested - Halfpenny at FB, Anscombe, Cuthbert, North even if off-form/unfit. We'd struggle against anyone, let alone an in-form and confident Scotland. We don't have the pack to out-muscle them in the way England might.

Will trog along as ever, but more in hope than expectation.

It's hard to pick a Welsh team, except that I guess the front 5 picks itself and obviously Gareth Davies will be at 9. I'd be tempted to throw caution to the wind, think of Wales v NZ 2003, and try:

Rob Evans, Owens, Lee, Brad Davies, AWJ, Shingler, Tips, Moriarty, Gareth Davies, Owen Williams, Owen Watkin, Scott Williams, Josh Adams, 1/2p, Rhys Patchell
bench: Wyn Jones, Elliott Dee, Francis, Seb Davies, Navidi, Aled Davies, Anscombe, Parkes

Really?

Well let's start with the back 3 - the likely Scotland back 3 of Seymour-Maitland-Hogg are experienced internationals and Lions tourists, and have been running riot for Scotland of late, scoring key tries. North isn't fit, 1/2P is solid and unspectacular and for all of Evans' potential he's fairly unproven at international level.

Then there's Finn Russell, an established international 10 who has been a pivotal player in some of Scotland's key victories over the last few years, and is held in such high regard that Racing are paying a bucketload of cash to sign him.

The word huge is perhaps OTT, but it doesn't take much of an argument to say that Scotland have the more potent backline

Ah, was forgetting Amos, I'd have him in over 1/2p on the wing if he's genuinely fit.

"it doesn't take much of an argument to say that Scotland have the more potent backline" - I agree with that, given the injury situation.

I'm sorry, but outside half aside, I do not see where Scotland have a huge advantage.

It's really very simple mate, here is a fantastic link that explains.

https://twitter.com/SimonGleave/status/937613458811613184

"2 points per entry into the opposition 22 is a very poor return but typical of Wales this autumn."

contrast that with:

https://twitter.com/SimonGleave/status/934479994264449027

"The 22 entries for Scotland's amazing 53-24 win against Australia. Basically, Scotland scored (usually a try) EVERY time they entered the Wallabies' 22.

Over the last 2 weeks, the Scots have been in the #AllBlacks and #Wallabies 22 on 19 occasions. Be scared"

Now, that Simon Gleave is a great stat collector, and English with no axe to grind. He's basically saying that your attack is really blunt, and has been for some time. Even in the partisan Scrum V they are bemoaning Wales' ability to score tries.

Now the Scarlets are scoring tries, and playing some great rugby, but can that translate to international level? That is a question that can't be answered without speculation. However Scotland have done it against some of the best teams in the world, including being only the 2nd NH team to put 50 on Australia. Now I don't want to get down to comparing todgers and start talking about Scotland's record against other teams with Wales' record against the same teams because it's pointless. However I can say with certainty that the Scottish backline is producing the goods at test level against top class opposition wheras Wales' has not done so for 2 seasons.

The one area of the Welsh backline I fear is the centres should Dunbar or Taylor be injured - Wales did well in the Autumn with their power through midfield and we may struggle to contain them if we play a lightweight midfield with either Horne at 12 or Grigg at 13.

As a Welshman, I would like to say that I have really enjoyed watching Scotland over the last 12-18 months. They are playing a great brand of rugby at the moment, and history will count for nothing on the weekend- Wales will have to play very well to beat them.

I do think that Wales have the tools to beat Scotland, and am certainly not taking the victory for granted- I wouldn't be surprised to see a Scotland win, but I am hoping that home advantage, and the confidence that the Scarlets' lads should have will be enough to see us through, hopefully playing some heads up, expansive rugby at the same time...

This is one of the reasons I love discussion boards.

There's so much mud slinging and wang measuring going on but when the final whistle goes, half of the trumpeteers (on both sides) will quietly slink off and hide never to been seen again until there's more mud slinging to be done.

No one side can use history or form to claim they can tell what the outcome will be. Everyone can have a feeling or a guess, but you can't say "the game will go this way". If you could then why are you wasting your time on here, you should be at the bookies all day everyday earning thousands!

You can't even say "Oooo, one thing is for sure, it will be a close game". There's too many variables in rugby to be able to confidently predict an outcome. Players can get injured. Refs can have howlers. Players can have brain farts and get themselves carded. Just as likely is that one team will work out how to beat the other, or at least negate their tactics. Players x, y and z could have the game of their lives and dictate the outcome. Players A, B and C could have the worst games of their careers and severely dent their sides chances.

For me, I'm still going for a Scotland win, but if I'm wrong I'll not be hiding under the couch to keep away from the "I told you so brigade" of the Welsh contingent. Likewise, if I'm right, I'm not going to be coming on here to be a poor winner and rubbing it in the faces of the level headed Welsh posters.

Why not say why the Welsh are on par rather than anyone thinking scotland are better is wrong with no explanation?

Yes, now this i can agree with, but you used the term HUGE, which as you say is OTT.

You seem to be assuming that every Scottish poster is the same person - Radge made the original post using the word huge...

Yahoo Yahoo Yahoo Yahoo

I just got a ticket. Thanks TTRRN Hug

The downside is it looks as if I'll be driving down on Saturday morning.
So if any of you scoundrels are travelling from the London area and want to share the drive (I'll do the driving you can keep me awake by indulging in "peasant conversation") let me know.

Can any of the Welsh posters offer advice on whether I should drive into Cardiff and park up or park outside the city? I remember a few years ago a Welsh acquaintance explaining how to do it but I've forgotten: the word Radyr comes to mind but I've no idea why.

Finally; I think it'll be a tight game. Gatland will stick to Warrenball. Thereby neutering the Scarlets backs. Our pack wont be as weak as some might imagine. Toonie will, probably, play Blair Kinghorn on the wing to run back kicks. Finn Russell will look to rub Gatland's nose in it after he has crapped all over the Welsh Grand Slam dream. Russell may try too hard and have a 'mare. It's all too close for me to call.

p.s. last time I was in Cardiff was for "that game"; Tom Evans, Dan Parks, Shane Williams scoring in added time. If Saturday is half as good then it'll be a cracker.

Amos is fit? A bit more to him than Evans but 2 wings with injury questions is a big risk.

Probably the best backline that is available to Wales.

The front 5 is where Wales will win this. If they revert to Warrenball, they would be a scarier team.

Looking forward to Thursday. Inside centre, locks, back-up tighthead and 8 are the interesting choices for Scotland in that order (for me).

The difference is if you ask those posters to explain they will and generally have on why they think that. And vice versa you could say why you think wales will win.

There's nothing wrong with confidence, and confidence in your team, but when Gwlad does it, he is trolling.

Look, it makes no difference to me, but let's just have some chwarae teg. Very Happy

I explained why:

I'd be immensely disappointed if we don't win at the weekend.

Because:


We've been the better team for the past 12 months; played better rugby, scored more points and won more games.
