Gatland has revealed the reason why Samson and Rob have missed out because neither have been able to play an active part compared to the other props in the summer camps. Gatland has looked at how 'durable' the props have been.

Congratulations to all Scarlets on the plane, go well.
Gutted for Rob and Samson but Wales' loss is definately our gain. Looking forward to them proving Gats wrong. Same for Scotty, his experience will be sorely missed. 
And while pleased for Jake, if 'durability' is the issue why on earth is he going?!

I suppose Jake is going as Cory Hill is out until the 2nd or 3rd group game and so far in the World Cup warm up games Adam Beard hasn't stepped up and made as much of an impression. Jake is also another ball carrier.

Apart from AWJ, Ball and the 3 hookers that front 5 is weak

Along the way that was the reason for investing more in Carre, Dillon and Watkin.

Fair enough really. It’s Gatland’s trademark to stick with a predetermined selection based on full buildup.


I quite agree with you Will regarding participation in camps, but Hill made it without a minute of rugby since England in March.

Hill was awesome in that game though. They know that.

Totally understandable reason.

I don’t agree Cubby is lucky to go at all. The boy is class, and showed glimpses of what he can do despite a Limited first game and playing under yesterday’s poor game management in the first half. 

Not just my opinion either.

  1. James Davies – 6.5

One of the more impressive Welsh players on the pitch at the Principality. He latched on for two turnovers at the contact area and was busy helping deliver ball-security for Wales in attack.

I feel for all those who have missed out, But the best response is John Barclay's last time round- turn up at Scarlet training tomorrow and take the frustration out on some youngster who was hoping to wear your shirt for the next couple of months. And then be ready for an injury in your position perhaps as early as next week in Dublin.

Carre did ok yesterday considering it was only his fourth start in pro rugby. I’d definitely have taken Rob but Carre has obviously got huge potential
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Yet he’s taken Cory Hill who has a fracture in his leg.

No doubt that a 75% fit Rob Evans is a better player at the moment than Carre and Smith cannot understand his omission. 
Do not see point in Amos going
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

Trouble is, whatever the reasoning, other than Wyn and Francis the props aren't the strongest scrummagers. Scrums will be a huge target for our opponents. Hope that decision doesn't come back to bite us.

Disappointed for Rob Evans and Scott Williams but not surprised Samson hasn't been chosen as not been at his best for a while and doesn't seem to have recovered fully from his injury!

A knock to Tomos Francis would make selection interesting 🙂
