The best 10 in Wales by a street is Williams is average.
Dan Biggar and Rhys priestland are not up to the job can't command the game like world class number 10s Gavin Henson can 👍🙏
Rhys Priestland has no form. Not sure why on earth he is ever selected for the squad.
Wales have a world class 10 in what's the problem?
Pls say hi to a 16 yr old,currently in Cardiff Hosp with a heart valve infection, in for 6 weeks
he did a great job. Some people are just born a**holes!!
on his day Rhys Priestland is a world class operator. He'll be back, prove doubters wrong
It is, although Adam Jones is a better fly half than Rhys Priestland. Definately an option for next week :)
Well done today . The game changed for the better when you came on.
For Gods sake don't criticise Rhys Priestland. Certain troglodytes west of the Loughor do not have a sense of humour.
I really do not understand how Rhys Priestland can still be picked for Wales. No idea. No talent.
I had that bad feeling in my mind. Astonishingly, I can't blame Rhys Priestland either!

With injuries aplenty as well as questions being asked of the French and English clubs to release players, one has to wonder the quality of players that will tour the Republic. Wales are already missing the injured Sam Warburton, Justin Tipuric, Leigh Halfpenny and Ashley Beck. Richard Hibbard is a major doubt and Rhys Priestland joined the casualty list when he limped off playing for the Scarlets against the Blues.

It's all go at the Millennium Stadium with the action faster that I can type!! Rhys Priestland is Wales' latest hero, his superb tackle on Mathieu Bastareaud stopping what would have been a certain French try. Then, with the scrum penalties increasing, referee Allain Rolland loses patience as props Gethin Jenkins and Nicolas Mas are sent to the sin bin to re evaluate things. 52 minutes played here and Wales still lead 20-6.

10 areas that will decide Cardiff Test Former All Blacks, Force and Lions coach JOHN MITCHELL looks at where Saturday's big match will be won and lost. Five points or less have separated the Springboks and Wales in their last three outings and at the 2011 World Cup, when the Boks won 17-16, James Hook missed two penalties and Rhys Priestland two drop kicks. I expect another close contest on Saturday, with the Boks edging Wales yet again. Let's look at the the 10 key areas ... 1. Exit kicking. We should see Fourie du Preez kick more than Morné Steyn from the immediate kick receipt or set piece. When Steyn kicks, it will be into stands with a territorial gain of 50m. If he kicks infield after the Springboks have been under pressure, I expect the Welsh to bring this ball back and build more pressure with the ball in hand. I don't understand the selection of Pat Lambie at fullback because he does not have the running lines or pace that an international fullback requires. However, his longer exit kicking for ...
Boks' RWC plan for Lambie 2013-11-07 Cape Town - With an eye on the 2011 Rugby World Cup, Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer says he wants Patrick Lambie to be comfortable in two positions. Lambie has been picked at fullback for South Africa's Test against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday, but Meyer said he will utilise the Sharks star at flyhalf as well during the year-end tour. "For a World Cup tournament you need players who are at home in more than one position," Meyer told Die Burger's website. "I don't want to give too much away, but Pat is good under the high ball and brings something different on attack. He will also play flyhalf," continued Meyer. After the Wales Test, the Boks also face Scotland (November 17, Edinburgh) and France (November 23, Paris). Saturday's Test at the Millennium Stadium kicks off at 19:30 (SA time). Teams: Wales: 15 Leigh Halfpenny, 14 George North, 13 Jonathan Davies, 12 Scott Williams, 11 Eli Walker, 10 Rhys Priestland, 9 Mike Phillips, 8 Toby Faletau, 7 Sam Warburton (captain), ...
Rugby Update - Lions skipper Sam Warburton captains Wales against South Africa, in the first of four autumn internationals at the Millennium Stadium this month. On the other flank is Dan Lydiate, now based at Racing Metro in France, who lines up for Wales for the first time since the summer of 2012 after long-term injury. Prop Gethin Jenkins will win his 99th cap on Saturday. Backs: Leigh Halfpenny, George North, Jonathan Davies, Scott Williams, Eli Walker, Rhys Priestland, Mike Phillips Forwards: Gethin Jenkins, Richard Hibbard, Adam Jones, Bradley Davies, Alun Wyn Jones, Dan Lydiate, Sam Warburton (c), Toby Faletau Replacements: Ken Owens, Paul James, Scott Andrews, Luke Charteris, Justin Tipuric, Lloyd Williams, James Hook, Liam Williams.
Wales Head Coach Warren Gatland has recalled Rhys Priestland to the starting team to face South Africa after the out-half missed 11 months through injury. He has also named one new cap in the starting 15, with Ospreys wing Eli Walker named on the wing, with George North operating on the other wing.
Priestland gets No 10 jersey Rhys Priestland will start at flyhalf ahead of James Hook for Wales' match against the Springboks on Saturday. Hook was named among the substitutes, with Dan Biggar falling out of the match-day squad altogether. Ospreys star wing, Eli Walker, will make his debut in place of Alex Cuthbert, who is out injured. The 21-year-old Walker will start on the left, as George North shifts to the right. Wales have nine players in their starting line-up who started against the Springboks in the 2011 World Cup pool match, the last time these teams met. Wales pushed the Boks all the way before losing 17-16. Ten of the team remain from that which started their last game against England in the Six Nations decider, which they won 30-3, and nine of them were in the starting line-up for the British & Irish Lions which hammered Australia 41-16 to clinch the series 2-1 in July this year. 'We always say we like to test ourselves against the best and Saturday is going to be just that with a huge game ...
Scotland and Wales have both announced their teams to face Japan (Murrayfield, 2:30pm) and South Africa (Millennium Stadium, 5:30pm) respectively. There are first Murrayfield starts for Tim Swinson and Tommy Seymour, with 7 Glasgow Warriors and 5 Edinburgh in the starting XV. A further 3 Warriors and 2 Edinburgh players are on the bench along with 1 Scarlet. 3 tries in the have helped Eli Walker get his first start for Wales, who have 12 players from the tournament in their starting XV. There are recalls for Rhys Priestland and Bradley Davies, who joins Alun Wyn Jones in the second row.

Wales confident they can put awful autumn behind them It has been one piece of bad news after another for Welsh rugby fans recently. A painfully poor autumn series saw them lose to Argentina, Samoa, New Zealand and Australia, on the back of a 3-0 whitewash on their summer tour down under. It is their worst sequence of results since the 2002/2003 season, when they lost 10 games on the bounce, and their misery has been compounded by consistently bad reports from the physios. On the medical front, Rhys Priestland, Luke Charteris, Bradley Davies, Aaron Jarvis, Alun Wyn Jones, Dan Lydiate and Huw Bennett will all certainly be absent for at least the beginning of the tournament. There is some slightly more optimistic news, however, concerning other players. “Ian (Evans) and Ryan (Jones) are being assessed on a daily basis, but it’s still very much positive,” says Rob Howley. “We’ll be in a better position to know if they’ll be available on Monday. In reference to Ryan, the scans have showed there’ ...
World Sports News Wales include Pretorius for Six Nations Wales named South Africa-born forward Andries Pretorius in a 35-man squad announced on Tuesday for the 2013 Six Nations. The 27-year-old Cardiff Blues back-rower was one of five uncapped players chosen by head coach Rob Howley for the defence of the grand slam champions' Six Nations title. Pretorius, born in Nelspruit, qualifies on residency for Wales and became available for selection last month. The other uncapped players in the squad were Ospreys wing Eli Walker, Pretorius' fellow Cardiff back-row Josh Navidi and locks James King (Ospreys) and Andrew Coombs (Newport Gwent Dragons). Cardiff flanker Sam Warburton retained the Wales captaincy. Wales are currently without several second rows -- Alun-Wyn Jones, Luke Charteris and Bradley Davies due to injury. Meanwhile outside-half Rhys Priestland and prop Aaron Jarvis are also sidelined ahead of the start of Wales's title defence at home to Ireland on February 2. Former Wales scrum-half Howley was a ...
