There are a number of reasons why certain players have fallen off the radar of Wales selection.
It could be coaching, but I think it's a little more than that.
Even when Dan Biggar, Webb and AWJ are back in the team they're not doing any better.
Coaching Yes! But I think it is more than that. The players do not have the ability to play whats in front of them.
The real question is, has natural flair been coached out of the players?
How often do Ospreys camp in their opponents half and never come away with a try or points?
This is happening far too often so there must be a reason.

How often have we read this statement in an Ospreys match report:
"Ospreys were left to rue a series of missed chances at the Sportsground as they failed to convert their periods of dominance into points."

In fact, this problem was a Wales problem a few years ago when Oz was down to 12 players on the park yet we couldn't score?
