Irrespective of which of Navidi or Thomas Young is better, Navidi is neither less experienced than Young at international level (he has 3 caps to Young's 2, and started both games that young played) nor is he playing out of position (he has always played at 7 and considers himself primarily a 7, though Blues coaches since Mark Hammet have usually played him at 8).


OK but Young has been playing 7 week in week out for at least the last year or so at Wasps, during which time I don't think Navidi has started at 7 very often at the Blues.


He also plays at a higher level of rugby week in week out in the Aviva.


Maybe the Welsh management think Navidi is better?

That is their right, as you say. I happen to disagree strongly with it, but my view is just that.

I do have quite a lot of money on Aus for Saturday though, with the amount of the bet increased by my confidence in the ineptitude of Welsh management.
