I used to enjoy reading Orders' weekly column in the Evening Post years ago,but since that publication has disappeared so it seems,has any good sense he might have had.Certain Welsh players are shamelessly showered with praise in a never-ending stream of hyperbole:and,yes,they tend to be Ospreys.This kind of"journalism"does nobody any favours,and is nothing short of cringe-worthy.I hope the Scarlets improve and triumph next season and beyond,and smash the Ospreys off the park year on year,if only to keep this clown from crowing.

Totally agree dic i thought he was very good in the post and always seemed to hold us in high regard,since he is with the WOL he has become obsessed with them and is forever championing any number of english based players.

I think journalism in general is down the pan. Less incentive to actually keep your readers interested with good content and it s more about the volume of clicks. 

So you end up with countless articles like:
Wales forgotten man playing in England
Player could be in wales squad 
Welsh qualified player does x

I haven’t read it for some years, but the Western Mail claiming to be the national newspaper of Wales is an embarrassment to the Nation. Both Ireland and Scotland have some newspapers of quality, the Irish Times and Scotsman for example. I’m not short of toilet paper so I won’t be rushing out to buy the Western Mail in the foreseeable future.

That was good but on the whole he was pretty poor. The midfield was a bit of a weakness for us yesterday. Halaholo coming on made a big difference

Orders'new ploy is to justify some of his stupid superlatives by attributing them to social-media posts.Thus last week AWJ was "super-human",and this week an ankle tap from Watkins(who,like Tompkins,struggles much of the time to resemble an international player)was "a thing of beauty".

midfield looked porous all game, dropped off tackles and not good enough.
