Well, quite. It's amazing how little innovation we get in the game nowadays. I understand why they changed from wings throwing in, though - it's so they can join in back moves once the ball has been secured - especially in the opposition half.

But it's clear to me that the hookers are not always very talented at throwing in. Why not just get (in practice) an idea of which forwards are the best ball-players and most accurate throwers, and then practise with those? It could be 1, 2, 3, 6, 7 or 8 - who cares, unless it's also one of the best jumpers - in which case you make a judgement call. I'm fed up that afaik no-one has tried this. It's about time.

Scarlets camp in sunny Aberystwyth next week. Wales play us in a full contact game there.
I heard about this ‘match’ a few weeks ago and assumed it’d be behind closed doors at the Parc or Cardiff. What’s Aberystwyth’s pitch / ground like?! 


My bad..it’s at the Vale
Probably dont want the public to see Wales lose again LOL

I think Lake is definitely the man going forward, has all the attributes just needs to sort out the line out and his fitness but hes a great prospect.

Fifita and Lousi are better than any blindsides/locks in the Wales squad. Wish they had “other” red jersey!

100% with you, but I’m a bit more rigid with only a front rower throwing in.
I’m also of the opinion that props only lift from the front but that’s for a different debate on a different day.
As long as you win it once, you'll never be forgotten
