Well that tells a story. Only two of our forwards selected which, in fairness I think is correct apart from when you see Carre & Dillon Lewis selected. Congratulations to Jac Morgan & Ratti deserved selections on form. I am no great fan of Sheedy or Tompkins but I am glad to see Owen Watkin selected. Cuthbert ahead of Lane could be contentious. Don't really know what Scott has to do to get selected. All I can say is that Pivac seems to be obsessed by English based players despite access to them being limited.

Luckiest player - Hardy; unluckiest - Scott/Reffell. 7 Scarlets selected must be our lowest representation for a number of years. Sign of the times.

It does seem a particularly weak squad, especially at center which makes the non-selection of Scott rather perplexing. Anyone know how many of the players are English based, as it seemed quite high from my rough count. We seem to lack power in the pack and dynamism in the backs and so I expect a tough Six Nations. Mind you I said the same thing last and we were 5 minutes away from a Grand Slam so what do I know!

Agree about Scott - surely, the form centre in Wales this season - unless he was injured v Bordeaux - he went off early. 

Also agree with your other comments - except, maybe, on Lane - he had a decent game last weekend, and looks good in attack, but the previous week his positional play was dreadful and he looked like a sieve in defence.

Gutted for Scott Williams. The squad looks light on centres to me and with his quality and now coming back to form and fitness it seems baffling to me.

Baffles me what Pivac sees in Carre and Dillon Lewis.

Only two Scarlet forwards in the squad, thought there’d be one or two more but good news for us I guess.

How does Pivac justify the selection of Priestland and Cuthbert? Lane is on fire atm and can play 14/13, he also keeps ignoring Holmes. You have Lloyd at Bristol who is also in fine form and he picks 35 year old Priestland. Definitely Scott over Foxy who should be nowhere near the squad. I’m glad he’s picked Ratti at 8 because he’s playing really well and this will tell us if he can make the step up from club to International. WGJ of Lewis who can’t scrummage. Looks a pretty weak squad overall and has been picked with one eye on the World Cup.

Regarding lewis and carre, its the Cardiff effect. Only Ratti and Davies are worthy of a place in the squad from the Cardiff pack. Yet 3 others are chosen. Jenkins has done nothing to justify his place ahead of Reffell
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

Ellis Jenkins? Crikey that’s a big call.

Jenkins was outstanding at blindside in the Autumn internationals, and excellent at openside against Toulouse, and in the games prior to the Autumn.

Whilst I fully agree Reffell deserves to be in the squad, for me it certainly wouldn’t be at the expense of Ellis Jenkins who can cover both flanks.

My thoughts on the team is that it’s heavy on guys that have 20 -30 caps, but, with respect, are no nearer to being a starter.
Dillon Lewis, Carre, Watkin, Brown, Seb Davies, Hardy, one or two others.

The opportunity to bring in a few younger guys was taken up to a point with Lake and Jac Morgan’s inclusion, but will they make the 23?

Huge respect for Rhys and Cuthy, but like Scott, they’ve had their time, there are guys ready and waiting to step up.

It’s a uninspired selection.

Much hinges on the Scotland match.

Not sure what to make of that lot. It really is an average squad and we are missing some top players and some top leaders. If we win 3 games i’ll be pleasantly surprised

Lloyd isn't a 10
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Don't think I agree with that at all, there is very much still a place for Scott in the side. Foxy on the other hand I think has had his time and I'm very surprised to see him selected.

I am meh. Towards rugby in general at the moment to be honest, hopefully the 6N will brighten things up again but I don't fancy our chances.
