So the squad for the AI's has been selected, and it's a head-turner alright! Forwards: R Evans (Scarlets), W Jones (Scarlets), N Smith (Ospreys), L Brown (Dragons), T Francis (Exeter), S Lee (Scarlets), K Dacey (Blues), E Dee (Dragons), K Owens (Scarlets), J Ball (Scarlets), A Beard (Ospreys), S Davies (Blues), C Hill (Dragons), AW Jones (Ospreys), S Cross (Ospreys), T Faletau (Bath), D Lydiate (Ospreys), J Navidi (Blues), A Shingler (Scarlets), J Tipuric (Ospreys). Backs: A Davies (Scarlets), G Davies (Scarlets), R Webb (Opsreys), D Bigger (Ospreys), R Patchell (Scarlets), R Priestland (Bath), O Williams (Gloucester), J Davies (Scarlets), T Morgan (Dragons), H Parkes (Scarlets), O Watkin (Ospreys), H Amos (Dragons), A Cuthbert (Blues), S Evans (Scarlets), L Halfpenny (Scarlets, L Williams (Saracens). Unavailable for selection (off the top of my head): Gethin Jenkins, Sam Warburton, James Davies, Ellis Jenkins, Olly Griffiths, Ross Moriarty, Dan Baker, George North, Eli Walker. The most interesting selection is in the centres. Ignoring the fact that Parkes is there (he isn't available for selection till the SA game), without Roberts or Scott Williams making the cut, we'll see one of Biggar, Patchell, Owen Williams, or Owen Watkin at 12 alongside Biggar/Priestland/Patchell. That's great to see, and makes it obvious that Gats is serious in moving away from Gatland Ball (at last!). I'd love to see a Patchell/Priestland, Watkin, Davies midfield combo! No idea how Lydiate and Cuthbert still made the cut! I suppose we're short a lot of back-rowers, but the likes of Boyde, Cracknell, Young and King are still options more deserving. On that note, why has Thomas Young been left out? Sam Cross has made the cut despite only playing a single Ospreys game. Overall, happy with the squad, mainly because it shows a change of approach from Gatland.
