Thought Pivac said available for some sort of rugby for the weekend of the French game which suggests he may be with us in Benetton.

I suppose at this present time with no fans allowed in , it really doesnt matter to the regions in terms of bums on seats etc like it normally would , if it wasnt for covid i dont think we would have had half as many league games during the autumn period as we have .

If at some point we are allowed say 1000 fans in we wont have to worry about not enough interest as im sure there will be up to 5000 fans who are desperate to get back to PYS, obviously the main thing is it is going to affect us results wise.

Looking at the games we have , Benetton, Edinburgh, Zebre, Connacht, Ulster and Leinster . we are probably one of the teams in the league affected most by international call ups, so this is going to affect us results wise big style during this period
Yea during Covid it’s not a problem for bums on seats but it certainly has an effect on the league. Shouldn’t be happening in “professional” sport and we had the chance to sort this whilst everything went on lockdown. This season we’ll have players who will play more games for wales than us and that’s not down to injuries.

Yea I get the salary thing but we’ll never gain interest in this sport in wales carrying on like this apart from the wales only crew or when we get a playoff. Sad and frustrating as a supporter.

Nothing against Elias he has all the minerals. But the non selection of Elliott Dee and the selection of Elias in the Welsh squad I find baffling. Pivac says its due to lack of game time Dee isnt selected...very bizarre as I think of all Wales hookers Elias is THE one needing a run of games.

Odd that Pivac says Dee needs more game time yet Sanjay hasn’t played for months and Patch, 10 minutes last Saturday? As for Steff, he had 2 tries and man of the match against the Blues whilst Jonah Holmes didn’t appear in the first 2 games and I thought Hewitt was the better of the Dragon wings last Friday night.  As mentioned in a previous post, Pivac  makes it Up as he goes along mun!

Wyn Jones
Ryan Elias
Samson Lee
Jake Ball
Sam Lousi
Blade Thomson
Josh Macloed
Sione Kalamfoni

Gareth Davies
Rhys Patchell
Steff Evans
Jonny Williams
Jon Davies
Tom Rogers
Leigh Halpenny

Rob Evans ( if fit)
Dafydd Hughes
Werner Kruger
Tex Ratuva
Uzair Cassiem
Dean Blacker
Angus O'Brien
Tyler Morgan

I'm resting Ken as we have lost our 1st and 2nd choice hookers, so someone will need to start next week who hasn't played much yet ( it might be that Marc Jones is the next taxi off the rank ).

Giving Dan Jones a break so Angus can get in to the 23 for some game time, likewise with Hardy so Blacker can come in.
Cassiem offers potentially a little more than Cubby off the bench and Cubby is our first choice 7 with Macleod now called up.
I'd like to have had Kennedy or Dan Davies in there somewhere too if I could, but this is a game we go all out to win, and so can't spin all the plates.

what do we think of the idea of a 6/2 split
 
having both cubby and Cassiem on the bench?
 
if we have AOB starting or on bench he can cover back 3 and cubby can also cover the wing (see la Rochelle)

Problem I see is we have Foxy who is just back from injury and no centre cover on the bench unless we can use Tom Rogers or indeed Cubby. Cubby for me would make a decent fist of playing at 13. I take it your gameplan involves really having a go at their pack.

10.Patchell
11.Steff
12.Costello
13.Davies
14.Rogers
15.AOB
Watching Costello in the u20's,I was struck by his appetite for the tackle,something confirmed by Leicester fans-he coould possibly offer a great option as 12 outside an attacking 10.That selection would allow Morgan onto the bench alongside Asquith and the scrum-half.With a view to the coming months,I'd be tempted to put Patch at 15 and AOB at 10.
(I'm fully aware that this selection is very unlikely to resemble the coaches',but....better a fantasy than a nightmare..)

bit small for a 12 isn't he? I know he's brave but not sure hell be able to physically cope in that position
 
Have to say patchell at 15 would offer more in attack than halfpenny does
