I don't really see too many changes to the wider squad over the next couple of years in the build up to the World Cup. I do think that some of those younger players who toured in the summer might have displaced some of those who have featured in squads in the past few years, so could see the wider squad over the next couple of years looking something like:

LH - R Evans, N Smith, G Jenkins
H - Owens, Dacey, Elias
TH - Lee, Francis, D Lewis
SR - AWJ, Charteris, Ball, S Davies / Beard
BR - Warburton, Tipuric, Faletau, Moriarty, E Jenkins / T Young

SH - Webb, G Davies, A Davies / T Williams
FH - Biggar, Anscombe / S Davies, / O Williams / Patchell
C - S Williams, J Davies, J Roberts / T Morgan / O Watkin
W / FB - L Williams, North, Halfpenny, Cuthbert / Amos / Giles


No Steff Evans ?
Surely he's ahead of Amos/Giles and probbaly Chuthbert ?

Can't see Gethin being there still in 2 years time. Rob Evans is now already a far better player.

Gethin and Luke Charteris are the two most likely to be out of the picture in two years. Can see both lasting one more AIs and 6N though.

Prop is a bit of an issue with the progress of a few younger players stalling. Hopefully they will come through it. I saw a bit of domachowski at the end of last season for the blues and he looks a bettter long term bet than wyn jones at LH

Big season for rob Evans. Likeable player but needs to add that bit of quality to his work

A 1 in 4 chance a member of the team will be a Davies or Williams :D

A major ongoing concern is the lack of Joneses in the squad. I don't know what we'll do once Alun Wyn retires. I'm really hoping Wyn (Scarlets), Will (Ospreys) and Ben (Blues) can step up in the next few years. ;)

At Llanelli Grammar School, there were 9 Williamses in my fifth form class (of 28). Not one was in the rugby team. ;)
