According to the press it seems Foxy is to be named captain. AWJ to the bench and a possible start for Thomas Young.

Tremendous honour for Foxy: Hopefully will boost his confidence rather than give him additional pressure!

I would have had Ken or Scott as captain if either was starting, wonder if this suggests neither will be.

Surely it would be Ken Owens so suspect your right and that Ken wont be playing either or on the bench. He needs a week off surely

Well I think its fair to say that Gatland will be true to his word and involve all 31 with some game time. So a team along the lines of :-

15. Amos 14. North 13. Foxy 12. Watkin 11. Adams 10. Biggar 9. Cawdor
8. Moriarty 7. Young 6. Wainwright 5. Hill 4. Jake 3. Samson 2. Dee 1. Smith

Bench : 16. Ryan 17. Wyn  18. Dillon 19. AWJ 20. Tipuric 21. Aled 22. Anscombe 23. Holmes

Did he say that? I missed it - but in any case, I think there are bound to be many changes for Italy, for several reasons - to check on form, and to try to decide which players might fit the plans for the RWC, for example.

Our back-up team didn't do too badly in the summer.

As for the team itself - I would not want to hazard a guess, but maybe they won't risk Moriarty as a starter... Navidi has played well at 8 before, and may be called upon there.

Thats a fair call Aber. There have been some calling for Wainwright to be given a run at 8. He is a natural ball player with a huge engine and a fair amount of gas. He is built a bit like O'Mahony who is excellent at lineout time so he may well be given a run. However 8 is such a specialist position he won't be risked I guess unless they have been training over the past weeks with that in mind. 

Whichever team he selects its been a long time since we have had two teams we would all back to do a good job. Gatland's decision to rest all his Lions apart from Moriarty last summer will go down as one of his very best decisions.

Turnbull is one of the eight left behind  which includes Seb, Steff, the four injured guys - Patchell, Halfpenny, Scott & Brown. The final guy is Evans the 4th 10.

Wholesale changes may be a potential error considering last Friday wasn't that great a performance. I'd want to play my starting 9 and 10 for England against Italy for them to find some form and confidence. But also good that places are up for grabs so I guess it's a balance between the two.

Biggar's carrying a slight injury so I don't think he'll be risked to start. If Anscombe was picked to start against France, so as not to ruin his confidence, then it'll be even more in need of boosting now. Perhaps Biggar coming on in the last 20 minutes if we're struggling or in need of a bonus point, although if it's an open game by then, keeping Anscombe on may be a slightly better bet for tries.

I fully expect Anscombe to start and hope he has a much better game. Not sure he's the best option versus England but Gatland has shown he can make the big calls for tactical reasons, which I'm sure Anscombe would respect if that were to happen.

For the record: I want a flat dynamic 10 who can also put in a big accurate kick now and then! Oh, and tackle. Patch is the man. Wink
