Not Earth shattering news but we're in trouble as a nation, this summer and well beyond.
Someone who is good at Geography would spot the earth shattering but only after it happened.

If only the WRU had a competent business team running its multi-million business.

Spot on Hartson. Very ominous signs for Pivac with the Ospreys stuck in reverse scrumtime. Even more ominous is the fact that nobody from the Bulls front 5 will probably make the Boks starting team. Another huge area of concern for Pivac was the ease with which Hendricks controlled the midfield.

So Sam Wainwright has been called up to the welsh squad with Leon Brown injured. Anyone know much about this ex RGC player? What does that say about WGJ's place in the pecking order. If Tomas Francis gets a knock its not going to be pretty viewing at scrumtime. Even with a fully fit & firing first choice front row of Wyn, Ryan & Francis we are going to have our work cut out getting parity at scrum and maul.

He's barely featured for Saracens outside of the championship & the premiership cup so I don't know much about him really. It does kind of remind me of the picking of Bradley Roberts really & getting him capped with a view to bringing him to Wales when its contract time.

TBH I don't think WGJ is anywhere near International standard at the minute, I have been less than impressed with him when I have seen him. I firmly have Javan as our starting TH with either Lee or WGJ benching depending on who is fit.

Exactly Pivac should have capped Javan before Scotland he is much better than the alternatives of Lewis and a bloke who is about 5th choice at Saracens. 
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

Our front row depth is pretty thin especially at tight head. Whoever understudies Francis is going to be in for a tough tour. If they stay fit Wyn, Gareth Thomas, Ryan & Lake should be ok. As Why says the best Welsh based tight head after Francis over the past  few months has been Javan so Pivac's obsession with English based players continues to undermine his statements about preparation time.
