Whatever the selection was/is this was never going to end well for everyone. The Jocks must have definitely unimpressed Gatland who is guily of taking too many old Welsh favourites - bit like his penchant for crowding out the coaching bench with English coaches...again.

People all over the BI & I working themselves into a lather - cue numerous new members of Scrum V to have a moan - but to no avail. He's picked his squad, barring injury it won't change. Let's see what happens, the proof of the pudding etc., etc.

Good luck to the boys.


Those outspoken 'moaning new members of Scrum V' should leave it up to the 'veterans of 20 odd posts' and not voice their own opinions?


Don't get above your station sunshine! You should know that unless you have hundreds of posts on any internet board, your opinions don't count! :D No one with more than 400 posts on here has ever talked shit.

Welcome to the board.


So it seems !!! Thank you very much for the welcome and I can see with my own eyes that no-one, and I mean no-one, with between 5 and 40000 posts ever, and I mean ever, talks shite, well...with some very notable exceptions of course.

I'll shuddup and work on my post count - by the SA tour in 2021 I'll be spouting shite with the best of you, hopefully.

No welsh props and one second row speaks volumes. Just shows how far we have fallen in our forward play. Last tour our front row went and hibbard and adam dominated.

Not many welsh players starting tests for me, back row.

Whatever you think of Gatland, he hasn't chosen this squad out of spite for certain players. He has chosen the team he thinks will do best.


He's chosen a squad based a lot on reputation with the personnel to play warren-ball. Especially the 6 centres.

Really cant see how people are pushing Scotland for something, they're a poor side that just about managed average in this last 6 nations. Being "slightly less shit than normal" doesn't suddenly mean they're good.

:thefinger:

Not too many complaints with that except Launchbury should be going - I'd have him in ahead of Henderson or Lawes (or even AWJ - are we sure he will be 100% fit by start of tour? - tin hat firmly in place... :D )
IMO you need at least one or two old fashioned hard *bar stewards* out in NZ of all places, and all five 2nd rows picked are more athletes than that particular profile.


The game has changed, OSR, no real enforcers these days, just 6 camera angles. ;)

This. Whitelock and Retallick aren't exactly enforcers, they're freaks.

Wales is over represented. Players picked on reputation not form.

1/2p, JD, Toby should not go. Moriarty is a wild card. Biggar im not convinced of.
Sam as captain is a joke.

Agree about JD he's not even in the top 10 centres at the moment. Biggar hasn't done enough to warrant being picked over Ford but Warburton is absolutely the right choice as captain, aside from the fact there are no other candidates who will get near the test team, he's as worthy a Lion's captain as there's even been.

Yeah but 1 season doesnt mean shit. You beat misfiring welsh and ireland teams but got royally rumped by england. it doesnt mean you have the best players. Would agree the scots representation is low though.
