The cupboard is bare. Back up tight heads are overseas players at 2 of 4 teams.

Could be a potential banana skin, this one. The scoreline between Georgia and Canada reminded me of the game I went to between Samoa and Canada - Samoa destroyed them in the first five minutes and went on to use the game as a practice match, wracking up a huge score along the way. Samoa's next game on that occasion was against Wales, and they beat us and knocked us into tier 3 for the WC draw. I did warn they looked a dangerous proposition at the time.
Let's hope we don't underestimate Georgia.

I agree that it won't be a walkover against Georgia, but still Canada are an even weaker team than they were five years ago. Having said this I think that, at least among the forwards, the use of rookies should be kept to a minimum.

Yep
Lots and lots of french based players a lot ProDiv2, backs not up to much ...forwards are powerful especially front row though!

This time Wales should kick and keep 'em running, avoid set piece ...

Gatland is going to make massive changes, the team will be unrecognizable from the one that played Saturday, and its totally pointless. Martyn Williams was saying last week what a horrible game this one is to play in, when all the other squad members are just thrown in together to play the so called lesser team. Let Saturdays team go again, with the exception of a few players who we know all about, they need to play together, especially before the meeting with NZ.

There is a balance between testing new players and winning. So we pick a team of players who we have no long term plan for and win the game. What do we learn?

Zirakashvili is absent injured so that's some relief for the Welsh front row
