Have been thinking about this for a while.

How many of your first choice p-layers (Full match fitness ) Do you not expect to make selection for the up and coming Rugby Cup?

For me ( England)

Dan Cole

Dylan Hartly

Chris Robshaw

Mike Brown seems to have lost his place as well.

Billy Vunapola  shame but seems to have alot of injuries

There could be more.

Who out of your team do you t think will miss out?

Discuss.

hmmm...none? Can't think of any that have injury currently that wont make the trip if selected. We don't know who our first choice team is yet. We'll know that next year after the trimmed RC.

I'd expect a bolter (non or vs Japan All Black- possibly George Bridge) to make the travelling side as our players will all be putting their hands up at Super rugby time. Miner Skudder was a new AB in 2015. I think we'll get a winger or loosie/ lock bolter. The rest of our positions are covered to about three deep.

How is Brown a first choicer when hes not the first choice? Is he injured?

Billy V? Does his current injury prevent him from playing next September? If not then surely one would expect him to play (being positive et all that).

I really can’t see any bolsters in the welsh squad, plenty of tough calls but we have played a lot of players over the last two seasons and have found some gems.

It’s who and where and if we are good enough that is the larger question.

Luke Morgan could be a bolter. First season playins 15s coming from 7s, 1 cap in the autumn, but blessed with genuine test level pace. Steff Evans is playing his way out of the squad and I think Gatland might prefer Morgan's pace over Steff's stepping. Otherwise, it will take a few injuries to get another bolter like Jonah Holmes in.

I wouldn’t personally think Luke Morgan is in the Bolter category. Jared Rosser of the dragons might be a surprise inclusion, or Owen lane? Steff Evans is out of favour which opens a up a highly contested position in the squad.
