It's funny to think just a few years ago our back 3 Was Ickle/HP/Byrne. How times change.

So who do we reckon for next week? Is Lydiate likely to be fit. If so just put Ryan into the second row and Lydiate to 6 and as things were? How about Warburton?

Gatland said Gethin and Dan are in with a shout

with AWJ not far behind.

So as long as Wales can put out a side that can take Scotland next week and not pick up any major training injuries they should be good for the rest of the tournament.

The boys on Scrum V were talking up Goughy...if it's a choice between Lou Reed and Ian Gough, then I'd go with Gough.

Was the only one with the sense to say hey, maybe we should show Scotland a little bit of respect too.

Assuming everybody's fit I'd go with the exact same team, move Ryan Jones into the second row to replace Davies (I'm going to just assume he gets a lengthy ban) and have Lydiate at 6.

Dan Lydiate and Gethin Jenkins are both expected to return to full training this week in time to make themselves available for selection for Wales' second round RBS 6 Nations clash with Scotland at the Millennium Stadium this Sunday (Kick-off 3pm).

The Wales side to take on the Scots in Cardiff will now be named on Thursday 9th February (see above), to allow injury issues to subside and to await news from the citing hearing taking place tomorrow (Wed) involving Bradley Davies.

Dragons back row Lydiate (ankle) and Blues prop Jenkins (knee) will be integrated back into full training during the early part of this week as will Blues wing Alex Cuthbert, who is following the normal protocols following taking a bump to the head.

Cuthbert will be available for selection and it is also hoped his Blues colleague, the Wales captain Sam Warburton, will recovery sufficiently from a dead leg to be in contention, but his fitness will be continually assessed over the next few days


So Cuthbert was injured

Good news, would like to see Cuthbert start with 1/2p at 15 again.

Slightly relieved that Cuthbert didn't return due to a knock.

Was worried that he'd either bottled it or Edwards had jumped the gun and pulled him off harshly for a defensive lapse.

Good news on Lydiate - we'll need him. Gethin should be rested up. Let's make sure he's 100% - Gill deserves a second bash.

Cuthbert is promising. Glad that's all it was.

I honestly thought he was pulled off but after watching the game again it was RP that was at fault for Bests try, not AC.
Hopefully we stick with him and let him develop. He is only 21 and only played a handful of games for the blues

Indeed. He reminds me of where North was a year ago. A bit nervous, a bit streaky, but with potential.

Took a knock on the head, where is the link for Gethin and Dan?

Cuthberts clearing kick was immense and he also has some very very nice hands for a winger he came in field a lot and put some great passes in.

No harm in just sticking with the same team for the championship bar injury and suspension (id guess Dan Lydiate in and Ryan to second row)

Cheers just read the Edwards piece as well, Wales are going to run the Jocks ragged none of this kicking business. Ah rugby played the Welsh way :D
Roof closed I hope and lots of heaters on

I've got theory about Jiffy Jr.

I reckon his skull cap makes him invisible to Irish defenders. That's the second game in a row against the paddies where he's just ran through the lot of them unopposed.

What Davies has got which is priceless at the top level is a real change of pace - his try against Ireland in the WC utilised it brilliantly, as did his second try on Sun.

I think his deceptive fatness plays a role in that...it's as if the Irish defence can't believe he's managed to accelerate as fast as he has. :lol:

Momentum and adrenalin I imagine. Jiffy is lucky that the ground seemed damp enough for him to be spun, as had his knee's found some purchase and gripped, then he could have at the very least have had a sever dead leg, and at worst, f**ked up his knee.

It's not all sweetness and light though. Here's BBBD living up to his nickname. It doesn't get better with repeat viewing. x(

Good one.
Darcy at fault for that try. North gets the ball, checks, sees darcy then out paces him on the outside. When a 19 year old kid does that it is time to retire. Anyone know JD's sprint time over 40m?

Who was it tried to clear out the Bomb the same as Bakkies did.......Bradley was defending his team mate. I think his brain stopped working half way through and he couldn't stop himself :?

very good snipits there, the thing I noticed about North is how aggresive he was on Sunday, I think he's developing another aspect to his game a explosive hit on people, he was injoying every second of that match.
And that Brad incident its clear Rory best helped spin Ryan around its he that should be banned.

Some quriky facts for you
Did you notice how long sexton was on his place kicking well on one kick he took 2mins, and thats against the rules.
50,000 was the attendance lots of empty seats don't know the capacity.
