I know he's my son, but in all honesty do we really need to have threads like this?

Never mind that they are baseless or anecdotal at best, but the suggestion that we should just sideline international players is, well, let's say, worrying.

The original post is very poor but there is genuine discussion to be had on when we should re introduce our intls into team. I personally think it should be Scott and HP in centre Foxy on bench. Braclay should be rested as should ken Jake and Rob.
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

Smith wasn't on until the very last scrum so yesterday proved nothing other than the replacements policy went out the window when we lost the two second rows. We had to hold a forward back in case of another injury and Smith was the man. Yesterday was a match where in the end our injury toll lost us the match.

Any news on Jake?

Very distasteful comment.

That's a courteous way of describing it.

If you thought Webb had a good game you were on something stronger than me. I'm not saying it was all his fault far from it the fault lies with poor selection and the stubbornness to stay with a limited game plan because you have selected limited players.
Webb was excellent, as he has been all championship. One of the only players that plays what's in front of him
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

I disagree. Smith had the same SR support as rob did in previous scrims. Yet rob held his own where smith went backwards quicker than a locomotive on steroids.it proved a fresh smith and as no suitable replacement for a 90 minute rob

I fully expect both Scott and Foxy to be on the plane to NZ with the Lions.

Foxy  played very well today, his stats have also been really high in the Six Nations,

Steff Hughes is a steady eddie player offering very little in attack.

But yes lets leave out our best line breaker in Scott. I mean he was rubbish against Toulon and Saracens wasn't he?


Do you really think JD played well yesterday? I think he's had a really poor 6N. You can quote stats at me, but I know what I've seen. He's gone backwards since he came back from France, and has played himself out of a Lions place.

I wish JD would start showing some then. His passing is awful.

What a pointless thread on the forum! Scott and Foxy have been superb most of the 6 nations and I fully expect them both on the plane to NZ.

Scott when hes played for the Scarlets has probably been one of our best players all season

One off game for Wales and someone is calling for him to be dropped, ridiculous .

All the internationals come back into the squad for the Edinburgh game if fit. They will only boost the team and we need to start targetting bonus point wins and with Scott and Foxy in the center that will give us a good chance

Nothing to do with the original thread, but based purely on the 6 nations form, I think both are struggling. That said, their chances are vastly improved cause Gatland is in charge. From a personal point of view, a summer of much needed rest and a full pre-season would benefit both players.
In Pivac we trust

Agreed. I have no idea how people can think that Foxy has been outstanding in the 6N. Scott has played ok, but the way Wales have played has not done them any favours.

Aled, threatening the defence.... not sure about that !
Unless you are basing it on the one recent performance in Munster after the softening up work had been done and he was playing with the strong wind
