Say what you like about the qualification rules, but he's done his 3 years, the man is a class player who does all the basics incredibly well. Now he just strolled onto the international stage and did exactly the same. Hopefully this is the first cap of many. Clap

I don`t really care about MoM awards but that today was one of the most deserved. Not just for today but for the last 3 years at the Scarlets. As Jiffy said, "solid and rarely takes the wrong option". 

And a special mention for Wynn Jones. Two massive turnovers which turned the game.

His pick up for his first try was typical, how many players fluff those chances? Especially on their first cap in front of 70000?

He is a class act. To be honest he has always looked like an international standard player.

Big decision now for Gatland when choosing between Owen Williams and Hadleigh Parkes. I for one would pick Parkes.

I thought Steff Evans showed up well today as did Scott Williams. Rob Evans and Wyn Jones both played well also. Wales looked more dangerous when Rhys Pratchell came on the field.

No contest for me. If Parkes is fit he starts v Scotland.

Thing is about parkes, is that he plays "Gatland's" system week in week out. He knows how to "play" rugby. No contest

Parkes defence is very strong. He is also a 12 that can do gatlandball, but he can also pass, thats why Scott wont be seeing a welsh shirt when everyone is fit, imo

Scott went well today, his demise has been exaggerated as was foxys a year ago, who 6 months later went on to become a lions legend lol
