There were times last season when I only just considered Hardy the third best Scarlets scrum-half, let alone the best in Wales. Let's hope that Pivac has seen a lot more than I have in his play.

I think they've gone with hi as h is the fittest of the 3 & they're playing at altitude.

I've got a worrying  feeling  that Faff DeClerk will disrupt him big time at scrum and ruck, as Hardy is not the quickest at getting the ball away.
Retreating scrum and powerful counteruck not nice for scrum halves.
Keep the faith

I'm very worried about the South African centre partnership.

I dont normally feel this way with Wales. But i really dont care about the games. Pivac hasnt a clue and i hope SA put 50+ per game on us and he is sacked. The only thing i worry about is getting every scarlet home injury free and ready for next season
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

Whilst I do understand the stances of Mogwen & Cofi I cannot share their sentiments. I am a passionate Scarlets fan and surely that naturally extends to the National team. What is worrying for me is that we only have two players in the 23.

Do I want Wales to defy the odds - most definitely; do I think the team selected can win - I am afraid I don't. International rugby is the pinnacle of the sport & to be successful you have to have a very strong team spirit nurtured by trust in the system & coaching team. Welsh players have been let down by both in recent seasons.

I am sure individually the Welsh coaches are good guys but collectively they do not inspire the trust and honesty that Gatland & Edwards managed for many years. Man management is a huge skill particularly in the field of professional athletes & it is fairly obvious, even to the casual observer, that this skill is sadly missing at the moment. 

Be that as it may I will still get on the edge of my seat tomorrow at 1600 hours, with a decent Malbec in hand, & try to will the boys to a famous win - bois bach Welsh rugby needs something to cheer about.

It’s embarrassing in all respects even normal news articles. There’s better published school magazines.

GPR, was the wine chosen due to your forebodings about the result? In French, Mal bec translates as Bad nose (schnozzle or similar).

If only there was a Victoire des visiteurs option Wink
