I'm a bit surprised it is Holmes who drops out of the squad, and not Lane. Rogers gets a well-deserved call-up, though.

Those Cardiff half-backs deserve a chance. Brown looks more solid than Lewis at TH prop - I'm surprised he isn't higher up the pecking order usually. What's Gareth Thomas like? I know nothing about him.

Basically, we'll have to hope that the forwards can give those backs enough tidy ball to work with, as they look good enough to cause damage if they get a chance.

Team looks like a rotation as planned from before Canada game. Idea was to get most players 2 starts across 3 games.

Brown’s scrummaging has improved massively in all fairness. 
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Yes I feel that Brown has made significant progress. His carrying is pretty dynamic so if he can keep on progressing in the tight we could have a pretty decent TH on our hands for many years.

Might be a long hot afternoon for Wales today. We can’t cope with their physicality. Leaking tries very easily so far

 I remember him destroying the RFC scrum several years back in the mud in Cross Keys at barely 18 years old and he looked so impressive. I agree that his scrum has improved as well to add to his mobility skills.

Not even Tomos Williams as a positive this week. They are all garbage. Clueless first half.
What's going on?

Virtually no Scarlets on the field, Rogers has not excelled while Foxy is acting as a facilitator

Rogers has looked like a fish out of water today, lots of errors. Hope it doesn't hamper his development.

Forwards have been too weak against a big Argentina pack.

Rogers had a shocker today sadly foxy doing ok but lost his pace. People say williams at 9 should be a lion but he makes way too many mistskes. Amos back to his normal level today

I don't think I've ever seen a game played in such perfect conditions with so many handling errors.

Discipline non existent.  Basham's first act giving a penalty away ,same last week.  What are they doing all week?  Or are they simply not good enough players?
Keep the faith
