Many are calling for the return of Dan Lydiate at 6 for Wales. There is no doubt he is an excellent defensive option but for me the future i.e. France 2023 & beyond is someone like Tschiunza. Lets get him starting as much rugby as possible. Unlike Dan he gives us a valuable lineout option. He is bigger & quicker around the field so what is against him???? 

Elsewhere we do not have many options but its time, surely, for us to look at our options at 15. For me :-

15. Adams/LRZ 14. Adams/LRZ 13. North 12. Tompkins 11. Rio Dyer 10. Anscombe 9. Tomos
1. Thomas 2. Owens (C) 3. Francis 4. Rowlands 5. Beard 6. Tschiunza 7. Jac Morgan 8. Faletau.

16. Roberts 17. Smith 18. Lewis 19. Carter 20. Tipuric 21. Blacker 22. Costelow 23. Watkin.

Reffell and Halfpenny out, Cuthbert and Adams possibly fit.

I think Argentina are probably a better side than us. So I'd be impressed with a close result either way.

Other than the evergreen Ken Owens, our front row options look pretty dire at the moment. Thomas Francis doesn't look in good shape at all.
Go ahead..........Take those banana's

We should start by not picking players like Beard who are a liability and offer nothing apart from maul defence. There is a reason Nicki Smith was hardly picked by Gatland as good as he is around park he can’t scrimmage.
It’s time to pick the youngsters give Christ a go in second row put Moriaty on blindside Morgan on open side Tuperic not fit in my opinion and he has a pony tail.
Give the boy Hawkins as go at centre play Tomkins at 13 George on wing with LRZ Adams at 15.
Costellow to start at 10 SH a huge problem for Wales.

She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

We’ve all had a go at Pivac for tinkering too much. 

This is a proper test match against a possible QF opponent next year.

No changes for me except Tshiunza at 6, Tipuric to 7.

Everyone else keep the same except for injuries.

We need to get closer to picking a settled side, not 5/6 changes each week.

I think that's right. Minimal change.

My first thought was with Reffel being injured it addresses the 7 shirt challenge with Tips switching there, but it creates the dilemma of what to do at 6 when you haven't picked the likes of Moriarty or Wainwright.
I could see Tips staying at 6 and Morgan coming in at 7...equally Lydiate could come in at 6 of course.

I agree on Beard, he does seem to drift in to a passive state at times, and that's making him a bit of a liability against teams with a solid engine room ( Argentina have one for sure).

I think AWJ will start rather than Tshiunza though...I think the idea with Christ is he can cover 6 and 2nd row from the bench. If Morgan starts I can see Macloed coming in on the bench.

LH gamble on Gareth Thomas (limited game time) didn't really come off, and Nicky Smith didn't add that much (albeit he should have clearly started before Gareth). The curious call around not picking Carre bit back a bit.

I'm guessing Pivac is holding out for Josh Adams to be fit and start 15, and allow Anscombe to go to 10 ( Priestland to the bench).

Johnny McNicol should be at 15, he's by far the best option.

Jonny mac should be in squad although like liam and halfpenny he is into his 30s. We really need to find a few youngsters to start becoming regulars in our test team

How do we fix our lack of go forward and ball carrying in the pack? Moriarty would have helped there and lake and brown, can’t see any of the current squad doing much there tbh

In all honesty I just don't think we have options there. Whether it be up and coming or veterans. Even when people talk about Moriarty I never thought he was a 'great' carrier, just solid.
