Watkin is a far better player than Tompkins but Halaholo is way better than either. He can actually see space and deliver passes to put quicker guys into that space. I am not sure whether Johny Williams possesses the all round distribution that Willis does but he is the next best available. 

Big test of Pivac's selection abilities around the corner.

If he had his way, myler would be his 10 and captain. Lol. Did you hear his appraisal of him (i think after theblast osprey game?)Whst a muppet. And the editor of the WOL is wondering why their numbers are falling

Absolute joke of a journalist

Always starts his stories with absolute baffling bullpoo and then slowly moves on to declare his undying love for Tipuric..

His articles are very child like and offer no insight at all.
Go ahead..........Take those banana's

An article about him being captain?

To be fair you can see a lot of journalists are bias to certain teams.

Booth backing his player publically good man management. Not sure orders has done much wrong in that article?

Judging by the comments I’m amazed that so many Scarlet Fever members still read the rag. Does Andy Howell still write for them? As I mentioned in an earlier post I haven’t looked at it for some years and consider it to be an embarrassment to the country.

Viewed in isolation,perhaps not,but already since Saturday Orders has touted Webb both for the England game and for the Lions.Like some scrawling invertebrate,caught in a web of flattery,Orders' obsessive preoccupation with the Ospreys scrum-half is possibly his most worrying,and is rivalled only by his unrequited love for Tipuric:an all-consuming fixation.

Can’t say i’m a webb fan, looks past it as a player and doesn’t come across as a good bloke tbh. Tupric is a top player seems a decent guy as well tbh

Webb has not been the same player since his Toulon experience for whatever reason. Tipuric remains one of the best all round rugby players in Europe. His tackle efficiency, work rate and lineout work are outstanding & if we ever get to play the offloading/support style that Pivac wants he will be an ideal link man. His work at the breakdown is not as good as Warburton, who was brilliant, but boy will we miss him when he is gone. He will remain the first back rower on the team sheet for a while.

Tipuric's "work" at the break-down has never been in the same league as our own James Davies,either.Cubby's turn-over prowess was coupled with excellence on the ball,Olympian excellence.In comparison to Tipuric however,Cubby has always been at a disadvantage in one key area:he's never been championed by somebody like Orders,never had the head-lines.Orders and his ilk have given Tipuric a pass when it comes to the break-down:not so Cubby......Who's injured now?

That's slightly unfair as tips has been a part of the ospreys since he burst on the scene whereas cubby couldn't get a look in until pivac arrived and gave him a chance.

I do not disagree with you Dic about Cubby. A couple of years ago he would have been my selection at 7 for Wales but now unfortunately he is carrying injuries. The selections in the back row are about balance not necessarily about the 3 best players for the numbers. Tipuric gives a huge amount to the team & needs a player like Navidi to enhance our breakdown work. Botham is starting to make a big name for himself as a very robust destructive back rower so a back row of Botham, Navidi & Tipuric is not out of the question. I thought Faletau off the pace on immediate reflection after the Scotland game but the stats say otherwise - most metres made, most tackles. Who would be a selector.
