Think he’s being disrespectful of the Italians.

He apparently made 10 changes last year after the defeat to Ireland and we won 38-14, however that's not to say that it will work this time.

I can sort of understand it, he's keeping some fresh for England, and he needs to test squad strength before the RWC.

I don't think it's as disrespectful, but I can see why it may look that way.

Truth be told, we didn't really win the French game, France gifted it too us. Yes we took the chances, but two tries were gifts.

We played terribly and I would say there are only three clear first choice players who played. AWJ, Ken O and Foxy. Gats is resting two, I think the rest is to see if they are better than those who started last week. You could argue this for each player. I think this is more to the fact that Gatland is still searching for his clear first choice players. Hopefully the likes of Ball, Lee, Young, Bigger, Watkin and Holmes will step up.

I agree with 157cb These games are where we have to play a squad game. We have enough to win and a bench to use as required if things go a bit astray. We need to do very well against England.

At least I think the major responsabilities are italians that during these year we didn t improve as the level of tournament need...so Gats can do his alternative players in sight of World Cup..
All italians, I firstly, have to understand that in rugby the respect on the field is earned and not claimed.
So tomorrow hope Italy could fear Wales and will be last time that Wales come to Rome with a big turnover...

Don’t tinker too much. Plus there’s warm up games before the World Cup. A few players would be ok but changing 10?

I'm not one for sentiment but this makes Wales great:


Think we should go back to goats leading us out as well - legendary.

Showed some control , young has had several good moments,but not very impressive in attack tbh
no north is a major factor in our backline, hes a source of pace power and try scoring threat
aled has kicked everything and been knocked of the ball a few times....we miss moriarty getting across the gain line...cawdor we miss his pace ....anscombe patchell we miss their gain line attacking threat
foxy butchered that overlap a bit, why didnt he just attack the space >? the other teams wont lose sleep
hopefully this is a mere aperitif to a better 2nd half
