I'd agree though that a reasonable amount of blame can sit with Pivac, selections are absolutely all over the place and our reaction to lacking dynamic power last week is to bring in a 34 year old 6 who's never had a carrying game and a 32 year old wing that hasn't played in months.

He then points at AWJ's non 23 selection as looking at options yet keeps Priestland on the bench over Costelow, his rationale has no consistency and seems like he's just making throw away comments.

His dig at the regions of the fitness and form of the players was laughable too; the more time they're with Wales the better they get, well that showed up well against in the last game of the 6 nations against Italy didn't it.
agree with all of the above post

I 2nd that RR. Pivac is and always has makes it up on the hoof. What about suggesting that the players who have played International rugby should, by now, realise the fitness levels that they need to be at before getting into camp. Wonder how Cuthbert's fitness levels are at the moment.

Also they get all the data from the regions on a regular basis and know what the step up is like from club to international, there's no surprises here so they need to find a solution rather than have digs, plus Ireland didn't look rusty, despite the amount of rest time their internationals get.

Pivac has always loved a good scapegoat, if the players need to be fit and ready for international games why is he picking players for the squad who haven't even played this season?

apportioning the blame for the decade of doom weve just entered?

Ill take a stab 55% wru (their insane priorities their failure to invest enough into regional/pro rugby/academies, scraping the A team, failing to scour the world for talent n playing and coaching, putting tests on amazon so millions fewer see the welsh team play) building hotels etc), 

15% pivac bizarre decisions, 5% his support team, 15% the academies....10% unforseen circumstances such as the emergence of football as wales national sport....The demise of rugby generally as entertaining and safety concerns ......Atm I find myself watching more football, cricket, darts, boxing, snooker etc
are playing numbers up or down?



F*** me you must be loaded them sports are all on different channels.

High humidity caused by a closed roof is spoiling the game for both sides.
Commercial considerations put ahead of rugby.

Welcome win. Good forward effort,  Ken Owens full on from 1 minute to 80 minutes. Not sure why Tompkins was taken off, Falatau immense, we're going to miss Rowlands. Jack Morgan good going forwards and in defence. Very few turnovers at the breakdown for either side, good counter rucking by Wales.  North and Tomos had good games, LRZ played well at FB.

Was that the poorest advert for international rugby?

Doesnt matter who won. We were poor, they were worse. If you want to inspire the next generation, dont watch the replay

I saw much more of Jac Morgan than Lydiate. He's not particularly big or fast but he really does make an impact and perhaps Wales should keep on playing him at 6. Excellent idea picking L R-Z at 15, Josh Adams back for Cuthbert and we will be flying back any clearances.
