Anscombe should provide some leadership, ther isn't really anyone else behind the scrum who can.

Yes Tomos was poor when he came on against Fiji..took some wrong decisions.  Anyway lets back him to make the right decisions  this time  and hopefully play well to instill confidence. 
Likewise , Anscombe,  having not played for so long, its vital mins for him. We need his experience,  particularly, if somthing  happens  to Biggar, but would'nt discount our own Costelow having a big impact.

My concern for sat's selection is risking one of our post potent attacking weapons Rees -Zammit.

Not strictly relevant, however, there’s no specific general RWC thread (yet).

Anyone know who the, now retired, ref from the previous World Cup was who sold his Tudor watch for £12,000 and ignited the sponsorship row that’s led to the refs and ARs not wearing any watches whatsoever?

Tudor were upset by the sale, although there was nothing in the various agreements to have prevented this. In the ensuing huff, they said that they wouldn’t be providing the officials with any new timepieces and they could use their old ones from 2019, or Garmins as they are not regarded as competition.

While I can only think of one ref who retired post 2019 that is likely to command such a figure for the watch, I am simply staggered by the stance of the watch company. They’re bordering on WRU levels of daftness.

Originally selected but a slight hamstring tweak (I think).

Why?

If we lose to them, it might well mean we finish third in the group. If we win, we ought to top the group with room to spare.

Anscomb completely off the pace and Tomos Williams just playing his own game.  This is calling out for Cawdor and Sam second half.
Fair play to Portugal, they play quickly and look for space immediately, whether that’s with ball in hand or by turning the welsh by kicking for space.
