Well selection day is coming soon. If the NZ media is to be believed their team is there for the taking. Have we got the team to worry them? Our chances would be far better if we had a fit & firing Anscombe. I would have thought that Cuthbert & Wainwright will not be considered as Cuthbert has not played this season & Wainwright has had what 11 minutes?

My guess is the following :-

15. Leigh 14. LRZ 13. North 12. Tompkins 11. Adams 10. Priestland 9. Tomos
1. Gareth Thomas 2. Ken 3. Francis 4. Beard 5. Rowlands 6. Tipuric 7. Reffell 8. Faletau

16. Ryan 17. Smith 18. Dillon 19. AWJ 20. Tschiunza 21. Hardy 22. Anscombe 23. Watkin.

That would be a blow - Watkin to 13, Tips to 7, Tschiunza to 6 & Hawkins/McLoud to bench.

Watkin to 13 but I think they may be looking at Morgan at 6.

GpR that's the team, I was thinking of, but as we are currently  discussing  on here..injuries.?
One point of concern, is that this is our first game since SA, and NZ have played recently.

Should we ask be saying is.... We all suffer from injuries but for any young player sitting on the bench... An injury is music too their ears.
If I was a young player and I was playing for the Scarlets or Wales then I would be being for an opportunity to show the world that I am the best and that the shirt is going to need for the next 100 matches... We all need to get this mental attitude .. Supporter and players included.... Less negatively and more positivity....

Really happy with that team, It will be really interesting to see Dyer and LRZ together, Both on form. Nicky smith is also on form so happy to see him. Shame Lake is injured but overall happy with the team.

Team as expected - Adams didn't make it just Anscombe ahead of Priestland. Be interesting to see how Tipuric goes - can't help thinking that making Tips captain ties Pivac's hands somewhat in selection. I would have had Tschiunza at 6 but overall a decent team. How ready Halfpenny, Anscombe, North, Owens & Tips are is debatable. Glad for Rio.

GPR, spot on ,as usual.Yes Adams wrist problem ruled him out.
Gives Dyer an excellent chance to shine, and more importantantly, learn against a top side
Will be interesting to see if pivac considers Adams as full back, together with Anscombe,  whe n both Adams and Biggar are fit.

Halfpenny won't let us down, and kicking, a bonus.
Pace in attack ,could be a  issue , particularly  against better international  sides. 
Pleased for him, as its so hard to come back from serious injury.
