Pivac has always made the odd weird selections...dropping cawdor for this match when he clearly had sextons numer, was one of them. His grudge with steff evans is another. Not sure why did didnt try will griff from the bench too. He also let shaun edwards go in a bizarre situation where he almost ended up with 2 defence coaches but offered edwards a lousy 2 year contract? bizarre

Let's hope he doesn't base his selection for the next match with the idea that Parkes is the back-up 10 in case of injury! Williams is out, we don't know how Biggar is recovering, and (as yet) there is no replacement 10 in the camp...
