I may end up being priced foolish but, if we avoid more injuries, I think we'll do very well. Having England and Ireland away is not helpful but I think we will win at Twickenham and end up just losing to Ireland. Yea we were poor in the autumn but we always are and actually it was one of our best ones of recent years

I feel pretty optimistic too despite everything sensibly pointing otherwise - i.e. missing 5 Lions in the backs for one & two in the back row!!!!. Maybe its just getting over excited.

It all hangs on allowing the Scarlets lads to play heads up rugby and fast ball from the forwards. I just hope Gatland et al allow the boys to play and don’t drill them into too much caution:

The boring, unthinking coach continually preaches about mistakes. The creative coach invites his players to make mistakes. Adventure and error go together. I loved Lewis Jones's way - "I may concede two, but I'll score four!" Carwyn James.

It would be nice as we've seen some boring 6N of late. Many clichés to bring up, earn the right to go wide etc, but I say just hit them with a high tempo "score from anywhere" mentality. Not reckless but ruthless.

Playing well without the ball so far and done well with it, but we need to get a bit more possession.

Nice one Barclay, 6 points from hands in the ruck now. I'm sure I heard a mild Welsh accent in his interview earlier, not saying he's our secret weapon or anything
