Well as most who read the posts here ,will know ive been pretty scathing of Wales this series .1st test totally woefull in all departments.,2nd test average,except for a totally crap lineout and intensity and form someway down on the RWC and 6Ns .Leaving D.Bigger in Wales as i posted then and elsewhere a big mistake ,as R.Preistland isnt in form at all,and M.Phillips also looking down in form from the 6Ns.The frontrow have failed totally to get any meaningfull dominance in the scrum ,and A.Jones has imo been a waste of space in general play.as the pace of both games leaves him looking lost and bewilded,and usually 5m from the action.So given all that why you may ask am i HOPEFULL Wales can finally win .Two words really PRIDE and STUBBONESS. Wales knowing they have underpreformed will want to end on a high,so will hopefully play with the total intensity,shown in the 6Ns,and defend with the stubborness shown against England pre RWC in the 2nd warm up game.Heres hoping anyway

Mystified why Priestland is still there, if you want someone to kick every opportunity away and to the opposing side player - who makes more yards than the kick. Give it Priestland - I fully agree with "rustytrumpet".
Still "GO WALES" - which I hope to see on the internet..

how the hell is rhys priestland still in the side, he has been a disaster all through the 6 nations and this tour. Unless he gets injured early and has to go off i can see us losing the series 3 - 0

Not the same beating a SH team when there is nothing at stake.
Winning one of the first two games, but narrowly losing the series would have had some merit.
Worst individual on tour is Howley.

Unbelievable Ian Evans not even on the bench. And surprise to me that Rhys Preistland still there. I could have coached a team of 14yo forwards to hold the ball for ten minutes but if your 10 seizes the ball and hoofs possession away what hopeis there.

Poor Richie Hibbard must be feeling pretty low at the moment. Long way to come back from this one. Not much to choose between him and Owens but can't argue with this week's selection.
Have to say, the one player we have seriously missed in a big way is Jamie Roberts. His individual defence and his organization of the backs in defence and, of course, his hard yards. Could have made the difference maybe...?

So Hibbard is the only casualty.
He wasn't even on the field when Wales lost 4 lineout throws in a row!
Rees is very lucky.
No Ian Evans?
Priestland getting another chance?
Howley had a chance to rejuvenate the team, and he refuses to take it.
But, come on Wales!
