Like Elias, he ended up playing a handful of games for us, and a token game against Samoa or some such for Wales.

It's time for prudent selection of Elias in my view, starting this weekend.

Investment in developing talent is easy when you win of course!
I'd also start Elias this coming weekend.

Looked like he had a point to prove when he came on last weekend with some very strong carries.
Think, think, think - it's a thinking man's game!! - The Great Carwyn James.

For me I'd go:

Jones, Elias, Sebastien (If Samson is out)
Tex, Louisi
Thompson, Kalamafoni, Macleod 
Davies, Patchell
Williams, Davies
Evans, Halfpenny Rogers

I'd be looking at having Cassiem on the bench alongside Morgan.

Like to see Costelo involved next week he will be needed when Patch and Leigh go with Wales. We seem to slow to put the youngsters in at the moment only doing so when we have to. We need some creativity at half back and I see him and Kieran as our future pairing. 
We have some really exciting youngsters but they need to be given a go the, English perm teams seem more prepared to give young Welsh talent a go, the Scarlets don’t seem to want to risk it. 
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

They play nearly double the number of games we do so they rotate their squad accordingly allowing opportunity for young talent
If you give our young guns a go you can't really risk more than one or two of them in any selection, unless of course you are prepared to lose games you should be winning for the sake of development.  The Pro12 as it is now does not have any easy games where we can confidently predict a win.  Even the Dragons are now hard to beat following their player and coaching recruitment.

Keep the faith

This is the last time we will see our internationals until the Heineken Cup starts in December. We need to go full strength. As Glasgow will be going full strength also. Whatever our strongest side is , that's the one we select. Plenty of games coming up for our younger players to be given game time. Theres atleast 6 more games during the autumn period.

The problem we may have during the autumn period is that the 40 man squad selected by Wales are going into a bubble so will they be released for regional duty if not in the squad for the international game ? In a case like this we could have someone like Elias/Steff evans going a long period without a game

Who will be heading to the Wales team? Wyn, Sheriff, Elias, Ball, Macleod, Cawdor, Steff Evans, Foxy, Halfpenny. 
Blade with Scotland. 

Surely it won’t be Sanjay with no games under his belt for pretty much a season, Patch shouldn’t be selected either.

Sanjay is nailed on. I'm worried Ratuva will be away with Fiji.

I have a feeling that we are going to lose the following :-

Leigh, Liam, Foxy, Johnny Williams, Patchell, Cawdor, Hardy, Wyn, Ken, Ryan, Samson, Jake & Josh. Also as Stef points out we could also lose Tex which is going to stretch our front 5 resources. Many of us have been championing our youth well they are going to be getting their chances with our team for Benetton looking something like the following :-

15. Tom Rogers 14. Ryan Conbeer 13. Tyler 12. Steff Hughes 11. Steff Evans 10. Dan 9. Blacker
1. Rob 2. Taylor 3. Javan 4. Sam 5. Rawlings 6. Blade 7. Cubby 8. Sione

16. Marc 17. Price 18. Werner 19. Helps 20. Casseim 21. Homer 22. AOB 23. Asquith. 

Any injuries at 1,2,3, 4, 5 or 9 will expose us. I am basing this on us not seeing any returnees from the welsh squad and Blade not making the Scottish squad.

Patchell makes it in but no Steff Evans you wonder how many tries he needs to score for a welsh region to be recognised. I mean thats good for us but you wonder what basis that decision was made. Sam Davies is one of the in form fly halves and loses out (not our player but the sake of picking Patch who has had 20 mins of game time). Johnny Williams and Hardy also gone, time for our new Scrum halves to step up.

Great for the players yes but it’s so bad how they have international games the same time as domestic. Really poos on clubs getting supporters to watch apart from the hardcore. Would have picked Kieran Williams over Jonny tbh.

I suppose at this present time with no fans allowed in , it really doesnt matter to the regions in terms of bums on seats etc like it normally would , if it wasnt for covid i dont think we would have had half as many league games during the autumn period as we have .

If at some point we are allowed say 1000 fans in we wont have to worry about not enough interest as im sure there will be up to 5000 fans who are desperate to get back to PYS, obviously the main thing is it is going to affect us results wise.

Looking at the games we have , Benetton, Edinburgh, Zebre, Connacht, Ulster and Leinster . we are probably one of the teams in the league affected most by international call ups, so this is going to affect us results wise big style during this period
