Think Cubby's recent form puts him well behind both Navidi & Jenkins. It would be fitting of Gatland's logic to pick him against South Africa when he has ignored him for the best part of 3 seasons when he was head & shoulders above any 7 in Europe!!!!

I'm a bit surprised that the Blues' 10 (Jarod Evans?) has not made the squad - he's been excellent recently, and picked at 10 in preference to Anscombe. Another example of the coaches' conservatism, maybe?

And Cubby’s comments about Wales haven’t done him anymore favours. It’s as if he doesn’t want to play.

Anscombe is clearly one of Gatland's favourites, and although he is a good dependable 10, it says a lot that the Blues think they play better with Evans at 10. Both players have a range of skills, and are adept at seeing where the space lies in the opposition ranks and using it to attack.  Of the two though, I feel that Evans is the best at getting his backs moving and most likely to make a break himself.

I know he made some unwise comments a while ago - but that's in the past, isn't it? Has he said anything recently?

And on a day when Prydie gets himself back into the squad, it is interesting to see how Gatland's policy on picking youth has changed. Jarod Evans is already a very high class flyhalf and should be in the squad. Well done Tom- I hope you get a chance in the summer and really break through next season.

Well all the Lions who played most of the tour are being rested. Judging by Liam's poor form he needs to have a good pre-season and learn how to tackle again. His defence this season has been woeful. You really have to score loads of wonder tries to compensate for missing try saving tackles every game.

Navidi a doubt for the summer tour after suffering a suspected shoulder dislocation in the Challenge Cup final win over Gloucester.

Thomas Young must be next in line I would have thought as Ollie Griffiths is injured. Outside bet would be Josh McLoud as he can cover all 3 back row spots pretty effectively.

That was what I thought GRP, I would like to see Young again but then I would really be happy for McLoud too.

Maybe John the fact Prydie has taken so long to get back in squad after being picked so young is an example of why Gats is no longer pushing players forward too young and too quickly. TBH it generally hasn't worked in the past so it might be best news long run for Evans and Wales. I think it probably is and let Evans have a good off season and come back even better next season, rather than risk him losing his confidence by being exposed by SA or Argentina (if he was exposed by them that is)

Tomas Francis, Luke Charteris and Josh Adams have all been dropped from the tour, as the first game is outside the World Rugby international window and their English clubs won’t release them, despite the fact that the season is already over for all three.

Josh Navidi’s dislocated shoulder means he won’t tour either.

Rhodri Jones (back to tight-head), Ashton Hewitt and Aaron Wainwright have been called up instead.

That's a bit pathetic - a dog in the manger attitude.
