Did you watch the game last week and did you catch any of the Six Nations?
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Cuthbert was outstanding in the 6 Nations and deserves a chance. Adams may even be carrying a niggle. It’s a good 23

Kind of agree, Adams has been one of best wingers in the world for last 3 years.

But LRZ and Cuthbert both have this extra touch of XFactor in raw pace and in Cutbert’s case, power.

If it was a WC final tomorrow I’d pick Adams but I can see why Pivac might want to see if a North&Cuthbert combo can get gainline. 

Nice problem to have!

I don't agree that Adams' form over the past 3 years should make him an automatic selection. At last Pivac is picking on current form - Gareth Thomas, Rowlands, Reffell etc. Cuthbert has performed every time Pivac has asked him to. Adams has had a knock and frankly was very quiet last Saturday and got subbed. His work rate dropped which may be due to being lacking in gametime.

Wales' game is based on hard kick chase so the wingers need to get involved. I don't think there is much difference in pace and Cuthbert certainly has the height & bulk to cause issues. Adams is one of those rare players who can cover back three and centre so a sensible selection. What I totally fail to understand is the continuing omission of Cawdor who is a proven match winner.

I'm with you 100% on this. Especially after Williams' blunder last week.

Cawdor disappearance has mystified me for a few years, on his day a world class player and proven match winner

If cuthbert makes a break i hope he picks his head up and looks for support, he gets isolated too often which is a shame as he beats the first man on most ocassions

YC was an awful call. However we really haven’t been good today. Should never have so many lineout throws not straight at this level. Lots of other basic errors around the pitch too

Watching this team is painful. 

Every aspect of Wales game has been pretty poor. And Anscombe just missed an easy kick by quite some margin.

13-12 win...  deeply conservative, but very satisfying...  Wainwright held his ground in the last couple of scrums but he'll have to start next week probably.
