ps. it is Garyn Smith.

Yeah,

Think they are probably just giving Lloyd Williams a rest as he has played a lot of games and there is a short turnaround.

Fair comment on Knoyle, hope he does find his feet. Mitchell still baffles me. He did well when he came on last week.

Montpellier have the 1st choice Georgian loosehead and the 1st choice SA tighthead tonight, if the Blues scrum doesn't go backward, it will show how much their scrum has improved under Wilson.

It's amazing how much Danny Wilson improved the scrum, even when Filise went off the scrum still held its own even with a 19 years old at tighthead.

Blues should really have won that but for some iffy ref decisions.

His brother pkayed for us a few years ago. That was quick. Toulon only just released him due to his assault conviction. Hope he isn't one of the "big signings" we're suposed to be making.

Forgot that was even on last night. Everyone here watched it? Unlucky to lose by a point lads, sounds like you did well. The French are good at home and it doesn't surprise me to hear the ref was in their back pocket as that seems to be protocol when playing in France. Wilson is a great coach - our Wales U20 teams underwent a remarkable transformation under him and since his departure there has been a great void.

Sounds like a good signing too if he was in the Toulon squad? Just look after him on a night out in Cardiff Wink.

I didn't watch it, I don't have BeIN sports. Have seen a clip of the last scrum. Hoping a more indepth highlights is available soon. Cuthbert scored again. Could be finding form just in time for the Six Nations. . .

Anyway, take it you need 9 or 10 points from your remaining fixtures to be within a shout of progressing? Calvisano is 5 points, not so sure about Quins. That opening disaster against them could be very costly.

How many NWQ is this now ?

Seriously Cardiff Blues do my head in on times, Aussies are not re-known for their scrumaging, but it does not matter, come to Wales, we know you are coming to the end of your career, lets top up your pension for you.

Right now we have a 39 year old tight head starting games. Andrews seems to be being converted, Mitchell seems to be in Lalaland and our next option after that is a 19 year old. He is needed, he will be going cheap as he just got sacked and i would assume it is a short term deal. I also don't know what has happend to the NWQ Quota but we could do a lot worse than this signing.

In the interest of fairness I'll pitch in. Ma'afu was at Northampton and was a great scrummager with them, I remember him. Was he also the guy that lifted Scott Andrews a few feet in the air when Blues played Toulon or am I think of somebody else? I would also guess that he is a short-term replacement for Filise, who we believe might finally retire now (famous last words) - so I think Blues are looking to strengthen their squad rather than give this guy a pension top-up. Blues are also bringing through some Wales U20 props and they look promising.

That was a very good display last night, the scrum far exceeded my expectations, Filise did very well and even Lewis held his own relatively well given his lack of experience at this level. That was some renowned props they were up against.

It should have been a W really, Vosawai did absolutely nothing for his yellow card, that was a perfectly ok maul defending and Ivaldi should have received a yellow card with 10 to go for a textbook no arm chop tackle on Vosawai which would have ensured a win.

Maafu looks like a very good signing which will make a lot of teams envious. I can't imagine the sight of having both him and Hoeata in the same team though.

Just to add to that. Cudmore is looking for a team next season. Lets nab him. Him and Hoeata would be a tidy pair of yellow card machines locks.

Hoeata might be let go, surely? I mean they are cutting the squad and for the most part he's been a waste of space. Cudmore is the type of played you needed a few years ago, he's 37. I wouldn't risk it.

Feeling more optimistic about Cardiff lately, Wilson's doing a tidy job, with his Bristol connection I wonder if he'll bring Ian Evans in for next season? Could do worse.

To be fair, either side would be a step up for him after Bristol, can see him going to either one.

I'd love Ian Evans at the Blues, but the Dragons do have the Lyn connection. He'd be an ideal signing for either of us.

I don't think it's that likely. If he does he will likely still be released if Gethin and P.James are fit.

I think Gatland will go with the young looseheads over Gill

Yes he has, Gethin Jenkins was keeping out before, but now that Gethin is getting on, Gill is the perfect replacement.

Given the ages of the two LH props you have just mentioned I think that's a stupid question.

As for the young LHs - well Smith doesn't seem to be considered any better than James, which he isn't, and he isn't really up to the level required yet anyway. Rob Evans is a good player and probably should have made the RWC squad which would have boosted his development - in addition to this I don't really see him pulling up trees at the Scarlets right now. Great in open field play but not really destroying opposition scrums.

Nick Williams has signed from Ulster! Haven't seen him play for a while but a season or two ago he was phenomenal. A bit indisciplined at times, but an absolute wrecking ball of an 8. You've been missing someone in this mould since Xavier Rush retired.

Could be a great signing.

Could be a great signing.

I do not want him here at Cardiff Blues, he is a liability and a thug. We already have one of those in Hoeata. I thought Navidi was going great guns at 8, I'm sorry but this is another waste, there is a reason why Ulster are not keeping hold of him.
