Some good players in the Australia side yes, but I think that experienced Wales side really should be looking to win this one. This is a test of Gatland's tactics as well as selection.

I'm a little surprised that Adams - a good player - is preferred to Liam (a proven 'test-match animal'). He'll be marking Folau - is Adams reckoned to be safer in defence than Liam? Hard to see the logic otherwise.

I'd have kept Lewis rather than Francis, and there wasn't much between Smith and Rob Evans. Beard looks like the future Wales second row, so maybe that's why he's been given a shot before Hill - he did very well in the summer, TBF.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Liam to me has become a bit of a defensive liability, Adams is a good call. The try he scored against Argentina was top drawer. Gatland, to be fair, has been true to his word. Players who did well in the summer are being given another chance - Lewis, Smith, Beard & Adams.

The real test of course will come when he selects his team for the 1st 6 nations game. Then we will find out who is in pole position.
