Wales: Liam Williams (Scarlets); Alex Cuthbert (Cardiff Blues), Jonathan Davies (Scarlets), Jamie Roberts (Racing Metro), George North (Northampton Saints); Dan Biggar (Ospreys), Mike Phillips (Racing Metro); Gethin Jenkins (Cardiff Blues), Ken Owens (Scarlets), Rhodri Jones (Scarlets), Luke Charteris (Perpignan), Alun Wyn Jones (Ospreys), Dan Lydiate (Racing Metro), Sam Warburton (Cardiff Blues, capt), Taulupe Faletau (Newport Gwent Dragons).

Reps: Richard Hibbard (Ospreys), Paul James (Bath Rugby), Adam Jones (Ospreys), Jake Ball (Scarlets), Justin Tipuric (Ospreys), Rhodri Williams (Scarlets), Rhys Priestland (Scarlets), James Hook (Perpignan)

Surprised about Hibbard dropped and James not getting a start
Hook unlucky not to get 15 We only have one kicker in the starting line up but Biggar is sound
Hope the backrow have been roasted

Looks like we are building a good squad, the younger players are making their mark and I think the future looks bright. Great to see James Hook doing well.

Good game from Wales, Biggar and Liam Williams looked good as did young Rhodri Williams when he came on, nice little kick from Hooky which set up Rhodri for his try ;-) only disappointment was the sending off of Hogg, not that he didn't deserve it but I would like to have seen Wales build a good score against 15 men

It was CJ and it highlighted for me what lots of those that have coached Hook and have sad about him He is a fabulous talent and is at his best in open play The kick was good but his back pass to off load to keep the ball moving was class Hook for me

I always thought he should have stayed in the centre but Gats McGeechan and now Delproux prefer him at 15 Look how dangerous Beale is at 15 for the Aussies Maybe they have a point

I agree about Hook.

Give him the ball in open play and he can be deadly.

Time for Halfpenny to move back to the wing?
