RE: Six Nations 2018
Wales have announced their squad for the match v Scotland:

Backs:

15. Leigh Halfpenny
14. Josh Adams
13. Scott Williams
12. Hadleigh Parkes
11. Steff Evans
10. Rhys Patchell
9. Gareth Davies

Forwards:

1. Rob Evans
2. Ken Owens
3. Samson Lee
4. Cory Hill
5. Alun Wyn Jones
6. Aaron Shingler
7. Josh Navidi
8. Ross Moriarty.

Replacements: Elliot Dee, Wyn Jones, Tomas Francis, Bradley Davies, Justin Tipuric, Aled Davies, Gareth Anscombe, Owen Watkin

Lots of Llanelli Scarlets players included, but surprised Moriaty plays at 8 and not Tipruic. Would have started Bradley Davies at 4, personally, but Hill might be a better option at slowing the pace of the Scottish attackers down. Good options on the bench for Wales as well.

Even with the injury problems, I still think that England can reach the half-century versus the Italians.

Eddie Jones has an efficient team who will be out to impress from the off.

The other two matches will be a lot closer - Scotland have picked up form and will want to do Wales over on their patch, plus Ireland could capitalise on the lack of the French Gallic Flair.

However, it looks as if Ireland have a major off-field issue to deal with.

That would be Englands best win over Italy in nearly 15 years, with a weaker England team than last year, and a stronger Italy team.

I'd be more inclined to go for something like

Italy 16 - 35 England

The Italians are very unpredictable, but they will want to impress against England, so I am more inclined to think the score will be nearer 16 -35 than 6 - 54.

They are all possible.

(two points for a conversion, three points for a drop goal or penalty kick and five points for a try).

The Jocks are so frustrating! I guess that’s the difference between a good side and a average one.

A fantastic display by Wales, one of their best performances for a good while.

Scotland never got out of the starting blocks.
