Post Who put their hands up?
After today's round of European matches, who put their hands up for making the squad against Scotland?
Also, who eased themselves out of the squad or out of the starting 15?

Unfortunately the best shout is available for Ireland :D

Cubby was good, but it is a matter of leaving someone out then.

I am not sure if he is even in the squad, but Scarlets 10 Dan Evans did himself no harm today. Add to that Dan Biggar's injury which could warrant major rethinking.

I really cannot agree. Dan Evans did nothing to advance himself into the Wales squad.
If anything, I think Dan Jones was a rock for Scarlets today in the 10 jersey.

I thought Shingler put his hands up for a starting berth in the number 6 Wales jersey.
He was a constant thorn in the flesh of Toulon.

I thought he was already 'pencilled in'?

I assume Moriarty will play at 8 not 6, even though maybe not match fit. Not sure when TF is back.

The biggest question for me that has emerged over the last couple of weeks is whether Patchell or Anscombe will be considered at full-back. Both have had some good performances in that position for their clubs over the past few weeks and could potentially offer something a bit different in attack.

Patchell, at 12 for me.

Most reports say Faletau will be back for the France match.

Biggar got injured against Clermont.
If he is not available we might well be looking at Anscome at 10 and Patchell at 15.

Moriarty didn't...didn't look at all match fit?

I agree. On his weekend show, I don't think he should be in the starting lineup.
I think we might well be looking a Navidi at 8, Shingler at 6 and Tips at 7 with Cubby on the bench.
Personally, I would prefer to see Cubby start with Tips on the bench or at 8.
I can't see that happening unless Steff starts as well signalling an all-out offensive against the Scots.
With the two Scarlets centres Scott and Parkes.
This may be a stage too far off from Gatland ball though. :D

Owens was good - has to start. Baldwin was also good and playing some of his best rugby

Watkin showed he has ability but like a lot of ospreys players had good moments but lots of errors

Shingler and James Davies continue to prove doubters like me wrong... at European level anyway

It's the nearest thing we have to judge players. If I were Gatland, I would blood more young players to get ready for 2019, his swansong. I would have Seb Davies in the team, and the back row for 2019 is likely to be Warburton, Faletau, and Moriarty.

The balance in the back row is critical.
