First topic message reminder :

Original opening post answered, changed to tour thread...:
Anyone know if the tour to Argentina (and or South Africa game in US) is being televised.

It looks like Sky aren't doing it and BBC and S4C haven't posted anything either.

Rhodri Jones was a loosehead who they tried to convert to tight with no success. It would seem that was knocked on the head by Ospreys, but clearly Gatland is taking him as tighthead cover or certainly a prop who can in theory play both sides.

Seeing as we've lost an out and out tighthead, surely they could've selected one. I am not saying he's a realistic option as such, but even Fairbrother has been playing well for Dragons, including scoring tries and showing up in the loose. I am sure there are better options in the pro teams?

The Oracle wrote:Anyway, good to see Hewitt and Wainwright called up. Hewitt’s probably there on merit as he’s been knocking on the door for a while but has unfortunately got injured at crucial times. Wainwright is a bit of a bolter and one I expect Wales want to get into the ‘environment’ so they can start collecting initial data, putting him on their conditioning programme, and that that jazz. One for the future.

Rhodri Jones is not new but has been out of favour for a while. Was the next big thing at one point but seemed to fall down the pecking order. Was he injured? I think perhaps he got leapfrogged by Samson Lee at Scarlets and then moved to the O’s for more game time. But I’d almost forgotten about him to be honest. Interestingly there’s a weird wiki entry for him - “His position, controversially, is tighthead prop.” Why is it controversial?! What did I miss?!!! Was he a LH and then asked to switch and then got forgotten, or something?

We’re obviously weakened a little by losing the 3 as there’s some decent experience there in Charteris and Francis. But good if some of these new 3 can get a run out and experience some (or some more) test rugby.

Yeah you're correct about Hewitt. I'm not sure about Wainright, new kid and very raw to the pro game. I'm not sure if that selection is going to benefit anyone in this instance. If Griffiths wasn't injured he would be in as he is potentially better than every open-side in Wales bar Navidi. I believe that Prydie was often on the cusp of a Wales recall but also kept getting injured at the wrong time.

Like alluded, RH Jones was a LH convert experiment that failed. I don't really recall him being good in the scrum on the TH side either though. Aaron Jarvis is probably better and can cover both sides of the scrum. Just for the record, now that Jarvis is a Dragons player I won't be championing him for more Wales honours, but Hibbard on the other hand...

Also the message here is clear, players should get themselves back to Wales if they want an international career. Cardiff Blues should chuck money at the English to get them to hand over Francis and Adams, their squad needs some new additions.

Part of me wants to see Gats stick to his guns, and drop all 13 Scarlets from the squad as they too are unavailable until the sad time as the English based lads. If he doesn’t, and he won’t, then it shows that he was just making an example of these lads, and also he didn’t have faith in his own players to make the Pro14 final.

With player wealthfare needing to be considered, we are going to seriously struggle to put together a 23 for the SA game.

Ireland are playing Italy as well that week. I think the key fact is that it is an "out-of-window" test, so who you play isn't predetermined.

Looking at the touring sides New Zealand and South Africa are booked, maybe Aus were asking for too much money? As I think the out of window tests come with more of a negotiation and eventual pay-out.

If Australia were holding out for a lot of cash with potential games against Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Italy, perhaps the 4 Northern Hemisphere nations decided they'd be financially better off playing each other? Ireland and Wales may get to keep a higher share of their gate, and Scotland and Italy get a percentage paid with fewer expenses to pay out.

We really do need to call some more players up unless the intention is to lose all three games with a scratch team. Turnbull is Shingler’s replacement Rolling Eyes

Curiosity question, why are Jeff clubs able to stop the release of welsh players from joining up with their test team when English players have been released and have played the Barbarians last weekend?  The 'international window' excuse would become moot as a hard and fast rule with no exceptions allowed surely as soon as team England ran onto the field at the weekend?

It's not moot. It's down to the agreement te rfu and prl have in releasing players outside of the international window.

I agree it may seem petty, but if the PRL are getting extra funding from the RFU for player release outside the window, to let any other union access players free of charge really does put them in a position of w Alness next time the ageeement is renewed.

Although, there is also some he arguement to be made that the inflexibility does help the RFU and other unions too, as it must make the Jeff less appealing to players Tom other unions.

Helps pay the part-time coaches' salaries too, I guess.
Maybe add some mid week games to the tour schedule in future. Wonder if there's a Washington DC Select XV free next Wednesday who could do with a knock about?

I get resting certain players etc, but I think I would've started Wainwright here, as he is an out and out backrow player and maybe have played Seb Davies over Bradley.

Rhys Patchell a doubt, hence why Gareth Davies is named as a possible backs replacement alongside him.

It’s bad state of affairs when we are down to having a centre cover fly half, and a scrum half cover the back three off the bench due to injuries/poor squad selection.

Both experimental teams alright but that is the best back-row we can put out right now. If Francis was at 3 then that’s a strong scrum unit, but it isn’t and from what I’ve seen Lewis doesn’t live up to the early promise. The 10 situation is what we all alluded to weeks ago and it’s already begun. There’s no impact off the bench there which is commonplace when you see the name Aled Davies, but there is also little impact around him. If this continues then the summer will be a waste of time.

Resting our Lions, resting Turk players who'll be back next game , its not a bad team considering.

Its the limited options in the backs that slightly concerns me. Scott is carrying a knock, and imo wouldn’t be available this week anyway, and Patch is an injury concern. So that is actually the full extent of the backs we have on tour.

We have South Africa Wales on a knife edge, should be a great game to watch! And tbh, with quite a new squad we have Argentina as quite a close series as well...could be really hit and miss for the Welsh!

Dear lord this is awful.

Picture quality is terrible. Sound quality is terrible. Camera work is terrible.

Is this because it's in the states or is it because it's channel four?

Director will be from the USA coverage. Not channel 4. Though you can blame the commentary on them.
