As poor as the back 3 were they can't do anything without the ball.

Wyn Jones, Ken Owens into front row.

Maybe Burne in at 6? What's the other options at 7 and 8? I'd look at those too.

That might give 9 and 10 a chance, I'd keep Biggar and maybe Ali Price.

Welsh back 3? 

Basically I think apart from 4,5 and 10 every place should be up for grabs. Nobody has impressed.

See what Gats does but I don't think he can be cautious.

That's who I was thinking about yesterday,  he has to replace Hogg who had a shocker. 

That's then the high ball sorted.

I'd drop him just for the trip, those things don't get missed at this level,  if he had been red carded its game over.

I've not watched the highlights yet to see what I missed.

Josh Navidi, Hamish Watson and Sam Simmonds are the back row options, with Tadhg Beirne as you said.

Not much!

To be honest the Boks did nothing exciting either.

Lions were poor at best.

Hope for changes, lots of changes.

Meanwhile the likes of England captain Owen Farrell, who was in line to win his 100th cap, Scotland captain Stuart Hogg and Wales No 8 Taulupe Faletau drop out of the matchday squad following the fractious 27-9 defeat to South Africa that lasted more than two hours.

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Very odd indeed, I'd hoped Farrell would start, but it looks like Gatland is hoping the Welsh can smash their way to victory??
