With preparations now well under way there is much speculation on the likely make up of the travelling 31. There is no doubt that some very high quality players will not make the plane such has been the improvement in depth over the past 18 months. Some big calls will be made, but there are only, in reality, a few positions which are up for grabs if in jury doesn't intervene.

Back 3 - 5 players predicted with one being up for grabs between Lane, Amos, Holmes & Steff. For me Amos' ability to play 15, 14, 13 & 11 will see him through. 

Centres - talk is 3 to travel. Straight shoot out between Watkins & Scott. For me Scotts ability to play equally well at 12 & 13 at International level should swing it for him.

10 - talk of two being taken with Parkes as emergency cover frightens me to death. Surely Gatland won't make the same mistake as Pivac.

9 - three are shoe ins.

Loose head - again the 3 in possession look safe but Carre may well oust Wyn if he impresses in training as he is a big ball carrier who could cause damage off the bench. 

Hookers - 3 are pretty safe

Tight heads - 3 are safe

Locks - 4 to go with Bradley, Jake & Aaron being the possible 4 the choice

Back row - 5 to go with Faletau hopefully fit that would leave 4 places with Tipuric & Moriarty certainties. Biggest selection dilemma here if Jenkins comes through it will only add to the headache. 

Watch this space as the summer progresses.
