What would your Wales squad for the Autumn Internationals be, based on the begining of the season? Mine would comprise of... (Names in brackets means 'Maybes') Fullbacks Lee Byrne, Jason Tovey, Barry Davis (Dan Evans) -An area of strength for Wales. Byrne is a given, and I expect Tovey to become the second-choice fullback this year. Excellent player. Wingers Shane Williams, Leigh Halfpenny, Mark Jones, Richard Fussell (Tom James, Aled Brew, Chris 'Check-Eye' [Not clue how you spell it.]) -Richard Fussell might seem slightly left-field, but he's been great for the Dragons, and deserves a Wales spot. Leigh Halfpenny is a given, Mark Jones has been all over the place for the Scarlets, and Shane Williams can always sprinkle the magic dust. I regret leaving out Tom James, but he's still an excellent player. Centre Jamie Roberts, Tom Shanklin, Jon Davis, James Hook, Andrew Bishop (Ashley Smith, Gavin Evans, Gavin Henson) -I know Henson is unlikely and the Blues seem to have something against Evans, despite him being excellent in the friendlies. Jamie Roberts is amongst the best centres in the world, Shanks is sually solid, and hopefully he'll cement that on saturday, Hook's unlikely as a 10, but his talent would be wasted if he was dropped, Bishop rarely has a bad game and Jon Davis has impressed me a for the Scarlets. Fly Half Stephen Jones, Nicky Robinson (Dan Biggar, James Hook) -Stephen Jones is the best 10 in Europe, and Nicky Robinson is in the form of his life. Scrum Half Mike Phillips, Dwayne Peel, Martin Roberts (Gareth Cooper, Tom Isaacs) -Hopefulyl Peely will be fit, so his and Phillips inclusions should be a given. Martin Roberts has been a lot quicker than Cooper, and having the same kind of desisions, so that's why I've chosen him instead. Back Row Ryan Jones, Andy Powell, Martyn Williams, (Hopefully) Sam Warbutton, Daf Jones, Joe Beerman (Johnathon Thomas, anyone else who's decent and fit!) Powell needs a couple of decent games under his belt, and he'll be in the team, Ryan probally won't be captain, but shall play nonetheless, Daffyd Jones has been all over the place, Beerman's the same, but I thought I'd include him seperatly because he's newly qualified, and Sam Warbutton is the second most promising player in Wales to Halfpenny. Locks Alun Wyn Jones, Ian Evans, Ian Gouth, Bradly Davis (Luke Charteris, somebody convinces Paul Tito to get a Welsh passport) AWJ=God as far as locks are concered, and Ian Evans is clearly Jesus in that case, if his post-injury form as his pre-injury form. Ian Gouth is a workhorse, and Bradley Davis is a solid linout catcher. Hookers Ken Owens, Matthew Rees, Gareth Williams (Richard Hibbard) The suprise of the season so far hasn't been the Dragons or Edinburgh's great perofmances, but Ken Owens. The man's incredible. He looks like a back row player on the ball, a monster in the scrum and a laser-targeted missle launcher with lineout throws. Gareth Williams has impressed me, too. Prop Gethin Jenkins (Please...), Duncan Jones, John Yapp, Effiron-Lewis Roberts (Anyone else who's Welsh and on the chunky side) I'm a Duncan fan. The yellow carding was unlike him, and hopefully he'll strike back from it once given the chance. Plsu with Adam out, we need at least one hairbear in the 22. Yapp is a moron, but a mighty one, and can destroy scrums and 'The Fridge' is the closest to Adam we've got in all besides hair. STARTING XV: 15- Byrne 14- Halfpenny 13- Hook/Shanklin 12- Jamie Roberts 11- Mark Jones (Shane Williams if he gets some good games in) 10- Jones 9- Phillips 8- R Jones 7- M Williams 6- D Jones 5- I Evans 4- AWJ 3- Jenkins 2- Owens 1- Duncan Well there you have it. Anyone else dare write their entire squad?
