Thats not far off our strongest 23 at the moment. Great to see Morgan Jones & Carwyn involved. Well done to Blacker - go for it lads absolutely nothing to lose.

Very attacking side that.  Pleased for Blacker and glad to see Samson back. Hope not too many scrums.

Sounds like Rob Evans is going to be out for a while. That’s a big blow.

Yes indeed, I was thinking the same. Not a bad side at all but a tough ask seeing how little rugby they've been playing.

Wyn, Elias WGJ that could be a Wales front three.  Pressure is on them plenty of Props vying for a place and with limited games at club level these guys need a good game.

Or on French channel 2 (FR2) if you have a satellite (as I do) or a VPR...

A very attacking selection - I'm delighted to see Wyn Jones back and Samson on the bench - hope they are good to go. Costelow + Patchell at 10 means that we are intending to run the ball, not play rugby tennis... nice to see Blacker get a chance - he's been great recently - we are spoiled at 9 ATM...

Who is captain? Fscarlet's post shows Foxy - he's the designated captain this season - but the email from Scarlets shows Scott... either is fine, though for my money Scott has been the form centre in Wales this season - baffled by his omission from the autumn tests.

We may not have great hopes of progressing, in the circumstances, but I really hope the boys 'give it a lash' and have fun...

A great selection (considering all the injuries), a very attack minded selection by Dwayne, with 2 sets of running halfbacks.  It should be a try fest, I just hope we hold out defensively, as that’s been our weak point for the past 2 - 3 seasons.
We have nothing to lose this weekend as we’ve already been unfairly disadvantaged following the rulings from round 1 and 2, it’s a free hit really.
I can’t wait to see the match and hopefully we will get to see Carwyn being exposed to European competition.

Totally agree, nothing to lose at all.

The one thing I hope with young Carwyn is that I hope we feed him the ball a little wider than we have been as when he takes it first receiver off 9 he doesn't tend to make a lot of ground. When he has taken it as second receiver he tends to be running into a bit more space which suits him & our off loading game.

Good side, easy 5ptsWink

Don’t understand why Tom Rogers or Conbeer aren’t getting any game time, need some speed out wide.
Interested to know if Blacker’s been selected for rugby reasons or if Hardy is unavailable through Covid.

Rob Evs is a big loss, we’ve got 5 games without internationals, Phil Price and Steffan Thomas against Saffer front rows will be tough going, hoping we keep either WGJ or Samson.
As long as you win it once, you'll never be forgotten

I believe that Combeer and Rogers are injured, it is interesting to know whether Hardy is not travelling due to restrictions on unvaccinated people entering France (without a reasonable excuse).
