I make a few assumptions as to fitness with Josh & Louisi possibly back & Scott probably out.

15. Johnny 14. Rogers 13. Tyler 12. Johnny Williams 11. Conbeer 10. Costelow 9. Cawdor
1. Rob 2. Marc Jones 3. Samson 4. Louisi 5. Morgan Jones 6. Aaron 7. Josh 8. Sione

16. Daf Hughes 17. Wyn 18. WGJ 19. Jac Price/Tom Price 20. Blade 21. Blacker 22. AOB 23. Ioan. 

I have absolutely no expectation of any positive result but if the likes of Steff, Ken, Elias & Foxy keep getting selected when they have played so badly then players in the wider squad will be left to question what they have to do to get an opportunity.

Imo this is a good selection. A few of our senior players e.g foxy and steff were way off the pace of the game. They would be exposed against Leinster. Totally agree on Tyler and Conbeer.

Not seen much of Daf Hughes but his throwing in was terrible when he was given a shout last season.Marc Jones doesn't offer much and is a journeyman,frankly.Get Davies back from Newport-at least he can throw in.

Im not denying that alot of players were out of form yesterday but Steff and Foxy have played decent so far this season, one bad game when everyone had a poor game not just those 3 players doesnt really justify the drop, Steffs defensive weaknesses and weakness under the high ball however may be targetted if he was to play so possibly a bench appearance for him and a start for Conbeer may be justified. Id like to se Foxy and Johnny in the centre though and Marc Jones is an able replacement so if he was to start that wouldnt be an awful thing but that was Kens first game of the season yesterday, they are off to Wales after Saturday and they need to be involved with us

I think we've got to stick with Ken. He's a true professional and will be deeply hurt by his and the Scarlets performance on Sunday. I'm not so sure about Tyler as his defence during the Sale debacle was pretty poor. Is Baldwin fit to play at outside centre? Other than that I can't fault your selection.

Ken would have been deeply hurt quite a few times in recent years,wouldn't he?

I'd find room for Steff Hughes and make him captain.

He seems to have had so many cuts around his eyes in particular he's probably lost count. Hope it's not too bad.

He’s fine. Few stitches and a shiner.

Couldn’t come back on as his eye had swollen over. Not overly happy about that.

100 up as fare as stitches in his head goes…half man half scar tissue

Tempted to give the same team a shot at redemption. If they don’t deliver the selection axe will have to fall

We keep banging on about foxy not being in the refs ear all the time, have a listen to Sam Warburton views on it. Also when was the last time a ref overturned a decision because someone asked them to. 

Even yesterday after the try, the only reason the knock on was looked at was because the TMO took it upon himself to look at it. The ref only asked was it a try.

Agree but broader game issues  that make the referee think eg like “can you please look sir at  Munster seemingly being offside during blitzing us “ is appropriate  as the Munster team were frequently on or over the edge and especially as it was causing us so much problem.

Foxy will continue to get picked based on reputation when there are players who deserve to be there ahead of him.
