  1. A relatively strong looking team for the Friday game of the Autumn. I think Gatland is giving players game time – who would normally be rested against the likes of Fiji, as well as trying a few combinations out.

    Disapointed not to see Faletau given a first start ahead of Jonathan Thomas, and Jason Tovey not even making the bench is also a misktake in my opinion.

  2. The one thing I don’t understand is that if Ryan plays hes down at blind side not number 8, I find that rather weird. Last week, when Powell got injured, Ryan came on to replace him and rightly packed down at 8. Jonoathan Thomas was alwys a no. 6 and as I said Ryan a no. 8 sop why reverse their roles because JT has been standing in for RJ!
