Williams had a decent return in a poor performance by Scarlets, Amos got a few more miles under his belt.

They Irish are a good side, well coached, they hold a lot of fear for Welsh fans. I only hope the Irish say similar of us.

Something to do with all the biscuits they get from the Irish fans wives, Daughters and girlfriends as treats for favours when they visit the Emerald Isle?

Remember when Stella Artois used to be proper ? It used to be in posh beveled cans and it was 5.2% proof, and it was like rocket fuel. It was always my choice of drink when I would spoil myself. Now do not get me wrong, it is still my preferred choice, and I will drink it before any other alcoholic beverage, but it is just not as pristine anymore, it is not as exotic. You know it was brewed in Magor, like everything  else. 

I used to prefer it when it was a proper export larger. Imported from Belgium, not the Welsh/English border. Laugh

Its 2 each in the last 4 years with a Welsh win in the summer pre RWC at our last meeting.

Too close to call. A weakened Irish front row, POC gone which is an inestimable loss, uncertainty in the centers and at fb and all the pressure therefore on Sexton to perform. And yet more pressure on the Irish to start well on their campaign to win a 3rd championship in a row.

I think Biggar is out to prove he is the better player and i expect this to be a the game in which he does that.

Who si the ref?

Wales and Irish posters are always nice and respectful before the game, we'll go at it hammer and tongs AFTER the game. Ref, linesman, Irish man dropped on head, Welsh ball boy, wind, rain, roof, bounce of ball, Ref again probably, hell it will be fun either way! Hug

There are a few surprises there... Rob Evans is a good shout and a Surprise for me... Thought they would have gone for experience...

Nice fast backrow....!

Tom James and Anscombe is interesting... I thought they would rush in Williams but he has been given the weekend

I'd have Amos on the bench over Cuthbert, given that Amos can cover fullback.

Yes i'm inclined to agree with you...! Lloyd I have no problem with, he is a great third choice scrumhalf and considering we are missing our first choice, Webb, he will not let us down. Might even have a bit of impact, you never know...

Warren Gatland wrote:We are excited by the make-up of the squad, it’s very experienced along with one eye looking to the future.
Rob (Evans) gets a start at loose-head, he’s played well for us before and deserves a chance looking ahead to the next few years.
We have been impressed with Tom James’ form for Cardiff Blues and we are excited by the mix of the back-row which has played well together before.
It’s great to see Jonathan (Davies) back and alongside Jamie, which makes a pretty experienced midfield.
Gareth (Anscombe) at full-back also gives us the option of having two first receivers.
We have a very experienced bench, with a lot of caps there and hopefully they will come on and make an impact.
It’s going to be a physical game.
Two years ago they strangled us out of the match and played well and we have to rise to that challenge on Sunday.

I would as well Luckless, but the one I would have had over both would have been Scott Williams

Or Liam Williams. Total waste of a sub and that could come back to haunt us. I also expect Tom James to show us why he's been out of the international arena all this time.

Not just a form issue he lacks ability to cover positions... I guess they want impact bulk? And I guess that they have considered players who have only had one or two games back need a little rest? Bar Warburton, but like George North, I don't think they are fully convinced that Warburton is actually fully human.
