    Posted: 08 May 2018 at 12:04pm
Rob Evans (Scarlets) (25 Caps) Wyn Jones (Scarlets) (8 Caps) Nicky Smith (Ospreys) (18 Caps) 
Elliot Dee (Dragons) (7 Caps) Ryan Elias (Scarlets) (2 Caps) 
Tomas Francis (Exeter Chiefs) (31 Caps) Samson Lee (Scarlets) (38 Caps) Dillon Lewis (Cardiff Blues) (2 Caps) 
Adam Beard (Ospreys) (2 Caps) Bradley Davies (Ospreys) (62 Caps) Seb Davies (Cardiff Blues) (4 Caps) Luke Charteris (Bath) (74 Caps) Cory Hill (Dragons) (15 Caps) (Co-Captain) 
James Davies (Scarlets) (1 Cap) Ellis Jenkins (Cardiff Blues) (6 Caps) (Co-Captain) Ross Moriarty (Gloucester) (20 Caps) Josh Navidi (Cardiff Blues) (11 Caps) Aaron Shingler (Scarlets) (17 Caps)`

Backs: Aled Davies (Scarlets) (8 Caps) Gareth Davies (Scarlets) (32 Caps) Tomos Williams (Cardiff Blues) (*Uncapped) 
Gareth Anscombe (Cardiff Blues) (15 Caps) Rhys Patchell (Scarlets) (8 Caps) 
Hadleigh Parkes (Scarlets) (6 Caps) Owen Watkin (Ospreys) (4 Caps) Scott Williams (Scarlets) (55 Caps) 
Josh Adams (Worcester Warriors) (2 Caps) Hallam Amos (Dragons) (15 Caps) Steff Evans (Scarlets) (9 Caps) George North (Northampton Saints) (73 Caps) Tom Prydie (Scarlets) (7 Caps)

13* Scarlets in 31-man squad - and Prydie's in... ShockedClap
(*although, by the time they go, 2 of them will be Ospreys Cry)

Only 2 outside-halves named, so either Patch & Anscombe will rotate as full-back or Amos will be at 15, I guess.
Jake & Fox injured (as are Webb & Owen Williams), Ken & Pence rested along with A-WJ, Biggar, Sanjay, Baldwin, Tips & Faletau.
5 locks, perhaps a bit surprising to see Bradley & Charteris both touring, but Gats & Co maybe think some experienced engine-room players are needed on tour. Tomos Williams is the only uncapped player in the squad.


Gatland quotes from the Press Conference:
On Prydie: "He has played well this year but has had a lot of injuries. We thought he carried well at the weekend and finished when he had the opportunity. We didn’t want to put him on the scrapheap so we gave him an opportunity."
Full-back selection: "Hallam Amos can play there. Gareth Anscombe and Patchell can cover it. We see Hallam as a player who will play there on the tour. He brings a left-footed option and this is an opportunity for him."
Scarlets players preparation if they make PRO14 Final: "If they have less preparation we will just have to deal with that. If the Scarlets get through we will have to bear that in mind."

So same Scarlets players as in the 6N except Ken has a summer off. Cubby retains his place, well done and Prydie's in - very well done!

As equally pleased to see the likes of Elias, Wyn, Shingler, Cubby and Patch get the opportunity as I am to see Jake, Foxy, Ken get the summer off.

Very well done to all the Scarlets - and I'm especially pleased for Cubby, who hasn't had a fair crack of the whip to date - he surely must be given more game time on this tour.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

 I know the Scarlets representation should make me proud, but I'm afraid one or two look jaded and would benefit more from a complete break, and as always the chance of further injuries always hangs over the benefit and experienced gained on these tours. Besides I think they would gain more from time with our coaches.

There will be some pretty worn out bodies out there after this tour like Samson,Rob,Shings and Cubby and in the backs Cawdor,Patchell ,HP and Steff. Sorry to see Rawlins miss out though.

13 Scarlets
6 Blues
5 Outside Wales
4 Ospreys
3 Dragons
 
Wonder how that very conveniently calculated stat about the Ospreys supplying the most players to Wales since regionalism is looking lately.

I don't think he will get much given that Ellis Jenkins has been named as the (co) captain.

Can't see Gatland not playing Shingler after his excellent 6 Nations. FWIW I think Shingler would get the Welsh rugby player of the season award if such a thing existed.

Thats what I think he will go with, though at the same time I wouldn't be surprised to see Navidi at 8.
