Reading between the lines, it seems as if it's his personality, and not his ability, which has kept him away from a Wales cap.

For me, his personality is one of the reason why he's essential to this squad.

Games aren't won on match-day. It's a full week of work. Players like Cubby bring a squad together, and make players want to come to work, and to work harder for each other.

Quite - excellent points.

All work and no play make Jack a dull boy... without a few jokers, any kind of work, including running like rats on a treadmill, is bound to get a bit boring. (God knows I've sat through some brain-numbing meetings in my time... I had to joke from time to time, otherwise I'd have gone nuts!)

The current Wales coaches don't look like a barrel of laughs, do they? Maybe that's why they don't 'get' Cubby, or his value to squad morale.

Both good summations. "Jokers" can be pretty misunderstood characters in any environment. With Cubby tho he is nothing if not a true professional. To be out for 12 weeks & play like he did at altitude 1st game for 80 minutes tells everyone that he is in great shape. 

He & Pivac seems to have a very special relationship. Aber your comment about the current Welsh coaching team is spot on - they conduct themselves like a group of undertakers for goodness sake. Lighten up lads its only a game.

I suppose with Rob Evans, they feel that they don't need two "personalities" !!! Wink Angry

Precisely - everyone knows who is in charge at PYS but he is also one of them & part of the squad. His stock continues to rise and he will be well in the hunt for the Welsh job come 2019.

This passed me by completely. Is there a link to the story?

I tried to Google it and looked on YouTube, with no luck so far... maybe some younger, more media-savvy SF poster can find it?

Basically, Pivac and Cubby were driving around the PyS car park... from memory, I think there was a brief Q&A, then they sang along to something on the vehicle's music player... they looked great mates. I don't even remember if it was loaded onto the Scarlets' own web pages, or if it formed part of a TV programme - again, perhaps someone younger can recall the details.

It was The Clash 'should I stay or should I go' they were singing to. Cubby can do many things, however singing is not one of them, which made it even funnier.
