The fact that he’s persisted with Cuthbert says it all, Priestland should be nowhere near the squad and Smith over Jones on the bench for me.

I feel for Watkin. No one picks him at 12, he’s not a play maker. Pivac does, then stops him from the 23.
Hawkins the right call, as it would have been last week.

Every team selection features one or two very questionable picks. Lewis over Francis? Cuthbert over Adams is pure bonkers. Wil is correct above about Watkin but I think he is mentioned as carrying  a knock.

Ahhh great dropped our only world class player josh adams after months of messing him around in the wrong positions. With him out and LRZ back in Gloucester weve lost our firepower. At least hes developing AWJ for the next world cup maybe 2027 too

Yes I’m wrong, he’s injured.

I totally  agree with that GPR. Strange selections...Lewis /Francis, & Cuthbert/Adams.
Also not completely  happy with make up of back row. Morgan deserves  the 7 jersey,is playing well.Tipuric at 6 however? 
He has been a wonderful  player and a joy to watch, but reckon still far from his best, and injury and recovery from that could be the reason. Also as a capt, he needs to be more assertive, and needs to be in the ref's ear more regularly. 

Overall,  the team has a better look though  with AwJ, Falateau & Anscombe returning.
Aussies like us not in a good place, so game could  go either way.

AWJ will be in the ref's ear, it's  in his DNA and this won't  help Tipuric as a captain.
Keep the faith

BREAKINGLate change for Wales

Wales v Australia (15:15 GMT)

Wales have been forced into a late change once again.

Leigh Halfpenny has withdrawn from the squad with a back spasm sustained during the warm up.

Josh Adams starts in an unfamiliar role at full-back.

Sam Costelow joins the replacements.

Halfpenny is another player who’s body just can no longer cope with the physical demands of International rugby.

Pivac will go now surely?
