Wales side announced for boys, and it's great to see Jonny Williams  on the teams sheet. If he remains  fit , surely he will be pressing for that 12 jersey, probably competing with Llewelyn. 
I really wish him well, and pray that the injury jinx that has plagued him stays away.
Cannot see a lot of creative inspiration  though in the Welsh selection,  and I expect a "slugfest". Hope I am totally  wrong of course. 
Will be a bid test for the two Cardiff props, and a few questions  will be answered  probably by the end of the game.
Will be intresting  to see how Grady goes, and it indicates  possibly ,that Gatland is lining him up more as a wing, but it's good he can offer the two options  of wing and centre.

What happens if Biggar is injured early on?  Who goes to outside half?  Cai Evans?  Hardly experienced at fly half at Regional level let alone international. Confused

The fact that Costelow had a good game against England & hasn’t featured last week or this week suggests to me he’s on the plane (or Eurotunnel) to the World Cup. I really expected to see him on the bench this weekend.

Sadly I think that this selection says that Kemsley and Cai Evans will not make the final squad.

Dan Biggar and Liam Williams withdraw from the Welsh squad due to injury.

Sam Costelow starts at 10, Cai Evans makes a debut at 15 and Tom Rogers on the bench.

Fragile: Handle With Care labels required. Hope they’re ok quickly.

Good luck to Sam, Cai & Tom on this late change of circumstances.

Yes a bit of a shock  Sanjay played well against  England,  so not worth  the risk...same with Biggar .
Good Sam gets more gametime, because that's the way he will improve. 
Good luck to  Cai, on first cap.

Let's hope Sam gets through without injury, as there isn't another recognised 10 on the bench.
Same for Johnny, Tom and Kieran, of course.
Johnny and Mason Grady a potentially devastating centre partnership.

Not too sure what out biggest threat at the World Cup will be: Fiji, Australia, or injuries.

A great opportunity for Tom Rogers though, I hope he goes well.

Lot of injuries and changes there pre-match.

The Boks are expecting a slug-fest - they have said so! And they are probably right. 

It'll be interesting to see how the young props get on - they were under the cosh early v England, but were on top by the time they were subbed. That front 5 looks better than the one that started last week, for sure. 

If Johnny W has a good game, surely he'll go rather than Llewellyn who is promising but no experience to speak of and didn't stand out the other week. 

Costelow - must be ahead of the other 10s apart from Biggar? Anscombe still not fit, presumably.

It's very much an experimental side still, with Gatland sticking to what was presumably a promise to give all (fit) squad players game time - but for that, I doubt Cai would have got a shot this time around. I don't believe the side is strong enough to win this game, but will be useful for the selectors and for the future.

Nice to see Costellow play for Biggar, there's a chance the centres might actually see the ball.
