Wyn in for Rob, who took a knock, Shings to start, Tom Price our top tackler with 10,, only playing for 50 odd minutes. The tackle on Dan Evans superb. AOB vastly under used onto bench, with Patch and Hardy to start. Possibly a star for Rodgers or Conbeer at 11, Foxy to 13 and Iestyn Rees as back row cover..,Bleddyn and Costelow are still injured as I understand it. 
Ospreys had the upper hand in the scrums Mark

   Disagree Stef, ESPN stats confirm what I thought. 80% off scrums won, Ospreys 71%.. Adam Jones was also not consistent with his officiating of that phase.

Either way gents I think we all agree that we didn't get mullered in the scrums as one poster suggested?

Totally agree GPR. And as 157cb mentioned above, if the ref hadn't missed Francis with one knee on the floor so may times the scrum stats might have been very different.

I hope we don’t sideline Blacker. For me, he’s our best 9. Dangerous runner and good service.

Our scrum wins are Cawdor rolling the ball all the way back to Kal’s feet in a split second not the full picture, but if you go back and look at prior matches that stats averages around 70%

If Foxy starts, he'll be captain. Be very surprised if he starts but is not captain. If he doesn't start, Scott for captain. With hindsight, I think Scott should have been made captain from the off, but hindsight is a wonderful thing!

We need to put our best side out regardless of those that haven't played for weeks.  After last years embarrassing debacle against them we need to lay down a marker.

If fit, I'd like to see Tyler Morgan get a start at 13 with either Scott or Johnny Williams at 12 (while the other is on the bench). I think Johnny Williams and Tyler Morgan could be a very strong centre partnership (similar to Scott and Foxy) for the future with long term potential, both have international experience and are both only in their mid-20s. Talented players who have both had their issues with injuries/illness that I think should be developed although while still trying to get the most out of Scott as he's clearly our best centre and on-field leader.

Yep, I think it's the first match of ours this season that hasn't been on S4C or the Beeb.

Would Rob Evans possibly be a doubt after 'hobbling' off against Ospreys, hope not but if so is Wyn Jones fit and available alongside Steff. 

Blacker at 9.
