Pivac doesn’t rate Jarrod very highly and if Biggar wasn’t in the 23 he’d have to go back to Northampton 

Well that makes two of you Steff. Perfect opportunity to see if Jarrod has taken on board the work ons which Pivac has requested. He is still our most exciting attacking 10 in the squad as we Scarlets can testify. Big danger that Jarrod looks at the situation with both Anscombe & Patchell to return and decides to take the money on offer over the bridge. Being 5th choice 10 is not an attractive proposition.

Maybe he hasn't displayed any of the requested work during training which is why he hasn't been picked.

But Jarrod needs to prove that he can take on board what numerous coaches have told him. He’s extremely talented yes but his game management and kicking game has been found wanting on numerous occasions. Anscombe had to coach him from full back when Cardiff won the Challenge Cup. Pivac is absolutely right to go for continuity this weekend. A big win will move Wales closer to the Championship.

Agreed, the points difference against Italy could be crucial if France don't beat England or Scotland.

With the side that Pivac has selected, I can see him giving them a message of get the BP secured by half time so that some of the players that need time on the pitch can play the 2nd half.

Ken, AWJ and Biggar could be lined up to only play the 1st 40 to keep them safe and fresh for France.

As an aside how well has our Ken done, his performances have been amazing given he has been out for so long. Clap

Continuity is fine & a big win is indeed the goal. Something doesn't quite add up though - we are often told that players returning to England hampers their chances as they miss so much preparation yet we lose two of our three 10's which leaves one for training yet he doesn't get selected. Not quite right in my view.

Evans is dasher, wales fans love that type of 10.
 
Your right he has flaws in his game but he is enjoyable to watch, Pivac doesn't fancy him it's as simple as that and that is fair enough and you can't blame Pivac for that. It;'s his job on the line he is doing what is his best for him 
 
If Anscombe and Patchell come back to fitness I doubt evans will even be in the  welsh squad , and priestland could even oust him at the blues next year
 
If an English club make him a better offer than the blues do you can't really blame him for going to England , like Pivac not picking him . Evans is  doing what is his best for him , when does sheedy's contract expire?  He is going to have to come back to wales then isn't he? same for ioan Lloyd

I think the reason he isn't lauded more outside of Wales is that we don't use a driving maul much as an attacking option where as England do so Jamie George scores more tries.

Yes Ken has done really well. Can't think of any hooker playing better this 6 nations. Young Kelleher has his backers but George has suffered like his other Saracens colleagues.

Yep, Ken has done brilliantly. 

We’ve been fortunate in the Line-out though with Blade getting injured in the first 15mins against us and Lawes injured for England.

I share the same Lions hope for him as he’s definitely in the top 2 with George.

Huge fan of the sheriff, playing as well as ever and the lineout seems to be functioning much better, scrum looks solid, the welsh defence has tightened and his work rate around the field is great... all time ledge and still more in the tank

Yep totally agree! He will make a good forwards coach in the future.

The lineout has been very good after the first game, and the scrum has been solid for a while... Ken deserves a lot of the credit, but so do the coaches for improving a very poor lineout a while back. Ken definitely has a few more miles in the tank, as you say!
