    I think it’s a good team still. Backline very solid without being spectacular, but our bench is red hot.

    There goes the improvement in our 22 exits.
    Wales will roost it into our 22 and wait for the 10m clearing kick.

    Oof. Not as confident as I was. Can't quite put my finger on it but I'm not that inspired by that team. Hopefully my reaction is unjustified.

    I've thought for a long while that Foley would be a lot better player if he had any competition whatsoever for his position. Well he's got it now so hopefully he comes out with a point to prove and carves. I like the bench and we should finish strong so hopefully the starters can also start well.

    EDIT: Just re-read and realised how many times I said "hopefully" :eek::D

    And the continued selection of Uelese over FF is complete balls...

    Line outs going to get dismantled ☹️

    So Beale is dropped to the bench, and AAC is put in as a safety choice I guess

    I would assume he will be defending a lock for Foley

    And Foley has a history of doing very well against Wales, but it does suggest more of a ground game

    I agree - out of 30 players available I think for this specific game the selections for starters and finishers make a lot of sense

    It's all fine but for Uelese and AAC.

    Anticipated issues for me are lineout, 22 exits and goal kicking

    Surprised to see Ken Owens there. He looked not great the other night in the match against Georgia.

    Bloody good team though. We are going to have to really front up for this.
