I’m sorry… what? Over the ball is Morgan’s biggest strength - he’s absolutely amazing at it. I really can’t understand some of Pivac’s selections. 

Wow, I didn't see that. That is baffling!!

Fully agree he’s won the most turnovers in the URC this season. If Pivac would of said that he wanted to give new players a chance then that would of been fine. He should feel hard done by IMO. I don’t get what vision Pivac has and what he’s trying to achieve with the squad, especially with the World Cup a year away and the shambolic six nations we’ve just had.

Lol literally a majority of the squad were better players in 2012 than they are in 2022.

Fundamentally I think Pivac’s job is on the line. 3-0 is sackable after the Italy game.

Basham over Jac Morgan is the surprise for me.

This is for discussion only, so bear with me.

Last season against Sale, who had a number of large Saffers in their pack, Jac was battered somewhat. I thought then that he was a little on the small side. However, this season he seems bigger, and appears to have bulked up, and put on a few pounds. I do notice that he often seems to complain to refs during matches when he feels that he has had his hands on the ball, but the ref doesn't award him the penalty. Under those circumstances, he's often been knocked off the ball, so failing to win the turnover. 

Might be me and my eyesight. I'd still have taken him to SA, he's certainly, on this season's form, probablty the best 7 in Wales. I'd play Navidi as a 6.

it’s the size and physicality of the Boks. It seems pretty sensible to be cautious with him at his age. Well done Pivac from me

For me Basham  is more physical than Morgan surely. He’s picking the right players he wants for away in South Africa.

Let’s say physical maturity then . They are both ‘young‘ men but for me Basham has more physicality. Anyway I can see Pivacs logic. He may be called up anyway with training injuries

Lydiate with his age and injury history won’t cope on those hard fast tracks. They had seb davies starting the last two tests now he is not on the tour? We get this lad over from ulster now we drop him from the squad. Patchell will get injured nailed on

Doesn’t surprise me that Foxy hasn’t been included and he’s been nowhere near his best all season, this could be the beginning of the end for his Welsh career. Really hope JBW and Notth start together. They could be a weapon in defence and attack. Ryan needs to push on as Lake is in good form.
Lydiate is the most physical blindside in Wales and will chop down anyone that runs at him on the gain line no matter how big and powerful, and they will be very big and powerful in SA. That’s clearly why he’s been picked. The question is is his lack of mobility going to be more of a factor than his physicality.

Basham is a stone lighter than Jac. Jac 1st in turnovers in the URC, Basham 49th...
What's going on?

Bssham is more physical as a carrier jac more physical at the breakdown, motor mouth pivac has gone public on his “candid chats” with both of them to the media.  Shame he’s not so candd on his own many short comings. Btw lydiate can’t even make the ospreys team and he is hardly one for the future. He wAs a too player but his best days are nigh on a decade behind him Great pick wayne

You will be getting the  “nonsense “ comment from the dic if you’re not careful 😂 I agree with you that Basham has the greater power and dynamism despite the weight charts. Morgan is just a very good jackaler who I feel the big Boks will smash off the ball. He needs a more rounded game !  Lydiate is a left field choice but he has been injured a lot and if he’s fit he may be a bit of a wild card . Dan must be really chuffed. Like you it’s a worry selecting Dan but I wish him well .
