If all the Scarlets internationals were picked it would be a great team with no criticism for Gatland yes?

How can he not pick Shingler to start? Most neutral rugby commentators have him as the stand out 6 of the whole tournament? Oh well what's an additional couple of million in prize money, it's obvious that the WRU are rolling in it from the ticket money and can pick an experimental side.

Hopefully the Scarlets players not involved can now rejoin the club and take part in training.

Just goes to prove what I said after the Scotland game and what Peter Jackson stated on scrum five. The coaches didn’t really want to pick so many Scarlets players for the Scotland game and to play the Scarlets way (sorry, I mean the Howley/Wales way), but their hands were tied by injuries to their preferred players. As those players have come back to fitness they have quickly been slotted back into the team at the expense of some of the Scarlets.
Today’s selection was just so predictable.

What does anyone expect from Manwithrabbitinhead and Stan Laurel? They’re ultra conservative. I think of late they’ve felt the pressure because Wales seem to keep going backwards. A ducks ae of a defence is only any good if you also secue possession and use it to score points. This shambles have such a limited view of how to play the game they’ve utterly squandered the talent in their hands for the last 5 years. They were over dependent on Shane for creativity and once they dropped Priestland for Dan Chopsy Bighead they’ve had zero idea how to score more than the opposition. Sorry but it just doesn’t cut it against the best teams. You can’t restrict the likes of the All Blacks to less than 15 or so points by letting them have the ball and running at you and fanning out at each ruck. It got found out years ago.

If they were to have a school report it would read “Should have done better.” I honestly believe the Grand Slam was there for the taking this year. Neither England or Ireland have been particularly brilliant this year IMHO and I feel disappointed that we lost those games.

Gatland started with a bang he had a pretty good 5 years , he inherited a very talented squad....the next 5 have been a woeful waste of talent. Failing to beat aussies or all blacks and losing 50% of all matches...They've also been a period of gatlands gluttony , taking 2 full years out to go on 2 lions tours in the past 5 years totally disrupting the welsh team and set up and leaving his unqualified kronies at home to run the welsh team with this amateurish clique.

Yes, he has gone stale and complacent.  Wasted some really good players.
