Just watched the ScrumV highlights and discussion of the Wales game and apparently Jon Davies made more meters in 12 minutes before his injury than anyone else in the rest of the team all game
Wales have had one plan for a very long time. With the right players available they can beat anyone. Question is, can they get a more subtle plan B in operation before the 6N?
What does Hook have to do to get a start, be it at 10 or in the centres? Looking at the backs available you feel there is a big lack of depth there... then you realise this guy called Hook is still floating around being massively underused. With players like Beck likely to start there is massive potential for a non-bosh, high skill approach yet perhaps less than 1% chance of a game plan involving playing intelligently.
With the injuries it is also a chance to bring Scott Williams on much in the same way Jon Davies developed in the National set up. Davies didn't look anywhere near international level for his first half dozen games but has improved hugely. The Scarlets tout Williams as the next big thing after Davies, stronger than a prop, quicker than a winger... so lets see it happen
Is Biggar really any better than Priestland? I can see both making the same errors Priestland did against SA Neither are truely world class. Hmmm...
North in the centres seems a waste just to maintain bosh plan A. Bit of a lack of wingers in Wales too should he switch
Forwards look pretty solid though and maybe Wales will miss Adam less now than ever before? Backs seem to be the main concern but maybe others disagree
