If you want to see how less experienced players go you probably put someone like awj alongside carter or Jenkins, in the frontrow you'd want ken alongside Wainwright, halfbacks you start with either costelow or dane. Pivac and gats before him really aren't very smart when bringing players through.


These were inevitable, almost engineered, outcomes, as was starting a 6,8,12,13 and 15 in shirts that their club/region don't.

Clearly we were planned to be home and hosed by the hour mark, and to be fair after 20 mins that looked a reasonable possibility, what ensued however, was a bus crash of biblical proportions.

You have to feel a bit for Daf Jenkins, Costelow and even Wainwright to an extent...put on with the opposition in the ascendancy and expected to see the team home.

Nicky Smith and Francis on the naughty step, Carre excluded in the manner of us having options in the front row akin to that of SA...?

Georgia are a Tier 1 country in one facet of play alone, scrums...so you pick a front row bench that aren't first choice for their teams, have a handful of playing minutes between them this season to match them?

Nah, you deserve all you get. Daft.

You can bring AWJ, Anscombe and presumably Francis back in next week (losing Rees-Zammitt, Daf Jenkins, Tompkins, Tschiunza and Refell to the squad).
Hardly ideal against an improved Australia.


and 10, priestland is not 1st choice at cardiff going back to him at this stage is madness
jarod , cowtelow and sheedy are far better options imo

It would have papered over the cracks big time but if Pivac had selected Nicky Smith and Tomas Francis on the bench I’m fairly certain Wales would have won.
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

I think we have so little quality in depth that Pivac is trying to shoehorn in his better players by playing them in any position possible. It doesn't work though.

i  just think he is clueless tbh jenkins a good young prospect no where near ready for test rugby, josh fine player but not an 8. Cuthbert is miles off in terms of match fitness, brnging on 2 props who are are iffy scrummagers and a small sub hwker against a strong scrummaging side was madness cheers wayne

An unused sub due to the performance of the starters and some replacements meant he wasn’t risked as the pursuit of a win ended in vain.
If I was Dane, I’d be thrilled to not have this poo result on my record and perhaps a better occasion for a first cap.
Couldn’t believe he kept Williams on who kept doing the same thing time and time again even though it never worked 
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

Watching the game this Evening I thought Georgia were excellent tbh...deserved winners.
Rugby is also played in the head....and Wales believe they are better than they are...


In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"

£10 for adults.  Half Price for kids.  Would have cost us £30 for a family of 4 so we were considering going.  Glad we didn't though!

Its not only the cost of tickets. Travel, parking, food, drink, etc. That goez up to over £100 not £30. Expensive day out
