Jonathan Davies believes Lions scrum-half Mike Phillips could lose his starting place for Wales' next Six Nations game. Former Wales captain Davies suspects head coach Warren Gatland could start with Ospreys' Rhys Webb against France in Cardiff on 21 February instead. "He must be under pressure," Davies told Radio Wales Sport. "Mike hasn't played well and the forwards have had a battering in the last couple of games."
Warren Gatland slams the intensity of the Rabo on Sunday - Jonathan Davies signs for Clermont on Tuesday. Smart lad.
So now Jonathan Davies, Liam Williams, Adam Jones and Scott Andrews have got injuries from the match yesterday, Warren Gatland has added 4 players to the Wales squad. 2 Props from Scarlets, Samson Lee and Rhodri Jones. 2 other players from the Dragons, Hallam Amos and Tom Prydie. Anyone got a comment for any of these players?
SOUTH AFRICA Injury to insult for Wales Sun, 10 Nov 2013 11:41 It was the worst we've been aerially for some time Wales’ woes were compounded in the wake of their loss to the Springboks in Cardiff on Saturday after confirmation that centre Jonathan Davies has been ruled out for the rest of the year. Wales suffered a 15-24 loss to the Springboks despite five penalties from the boot of the metronomic Leigh Halfpenny. Tries from captain Jean de Villiers, hooker Bismarck du Plessis and a second half effort from scrumhalf Fourie du Preez earned the win for Heyneke Meyer's side. Wales were not helped by a number of significant injuries. Davies, Liam Williams and Adam Jones were all forced off during a hugely physical first 40 minutes. Scott Andrews, who himself was a replacement, also went off injured as the intensity of the game led to its fair share of casualties. Wales coach Warren Gatland confirmed that Davies will miss the Tests against Argentina, Tonga and Australia due to a pectoral injury and possibly ...
Lunch with Jonathan Davies & Shaun Edwards on Saturday, dinner with Warren Gatland tonight. What a great week for a welsh rugby fan. Anybody know one?
RaboDirect PRO12 Predictions: Round 6 October 25, 2013 The first two rounds of the Heineken Cup have come and gone, and now Round Six of the RaboDirect Pro12 looms on the horizon. An intriguing list of fixtures await, particularly with the Autumn Internationals in the back of everyone’s minds, and Messrs Gatland, Johnson, Schmidt and Brunel will all be looking on with considerable interest. Zebre vs Scarlets If you had offered the Scarlets six points from their opening two Heineken Cup games two weeks ago, and a place at the top of Pool 4, they would have bitten your hand off. That being said, there will likely be a lot of frustration surrounding the fact they could not finish off Racing Metro after a very encouraging start last week, and I expect them to take that frustration out on Zebre. With the combination of Scott Williams and Jonathan Davies playing as well as any centre pairing in the Northern Hemisphere, and an underrated back row of Aaron Shingler, John Barclay and Josh Turnbull, they should p ...
Ania and I just had a lovely lunch with Joanne Edwards and Ffion at the Vale of Glamorgan hotel. It just so happened that Warren Gatland and Jonathan Davies were there at the same time. They asked Ania and Ffion for their autographs but quite rightly the girls refused. They were on a play date and you don't mix business with pleasure. Ania did say she would consider it next time if uncle Warren gets us a clean sweep in the autumn internationals. Come on Wales!
Sorry people, but in my opinion, old father time has caught up with the great Brian O'Driscoll. He has been a remarkable player - one of the best of all time - but there are no other guys of his vintage playing at the top level in the backs. The game is just too fast for them to keep up now. Latterly, the best part of his game has been his organisational and defensive work, which, granted, has been truly outstanding. However, to win on Saturday, the Lions need more. I'm sure Warren Gatland and his coaching team agonised over dropping a true rugby great and only time will tell if they were correct. It must have been a very close call. I think Jonathan Davies will justify his selection this week, particularly with Jamie Roberts playing. Once again, only time will tell.
Outcry over O’Driscoll omission masks other selection issues Posted on Jul 3, 2013 | 26 comments Warren Gatland has made quite a statement in dropping the one player people thought would be undroppable after injuries to the other two on-field leaders, Sam Warburton and Paul O’Connell. In leaving out Brian O’Driscoll he has lost the only other player who had a wealth of captaincy experience at international level, and as good a player as Alun-Wyn Jones is, he simply cannot point to this level of experience. The other slightly surprising side of this decision is that he has not been playing badly. Granted, he hasn’t been the attacking force that he once was, but then which of the backs – other than George North – has really sparkled with ball in hand? Jonathan Davies had a great game against the Waratahs but has been fairly pedestrian other than that – especially last week in the second test. Jamie Roberts’ selection is hugely based on reputation, given that he hasn’t had a good game since ...
British and Irish Lions head coach Warren Gatland has sprung one of the great surprises in the tourists' history by dropping Brian O'Driscoll for Saturday's series decider against Australia. O'Driscoll was the favourite to lead the Lions in the final Test at Sydney's ANZ Stadium after Sam Warburton was ruled out with a hamstring injury, but instead he has been omitted from the 23 with Alun-Wyn Jones named captain. The O'Driscoll-Jonathan Davies midfield partnership used for the first two Tests has been broken up, with Jamie Roberts picked at inside centre following his return from a hamstring injury. Davies moves to outside centre while Sean O'Brien, Alex Corbisiero, Richard Hibbard, Toby Faletau and Mike Phillips are promoted to a starting XV showing six changes to the side beaten 16-15 in Melbourne. It is a radically altered team but the dominant talking point will be the decision to axe 2005 Lions captain O'Driscoll for the first time in his 14-year professional career. The conundrum facing Gatland was ...
Jonathan Davies starts ahead of Brian O'Driscoll! I feel sick. Night of the Long Knives, Warren Gatland.
Lions: L Halfpenny; A Cuthbert, B O'Driscoll, J Davies, G North; J Sexton, M Phillips; A Corbisiero, T Youngs, A Jones; AW Jones, P O'Connell; T Croft, S Warburton (c), J Heaslip. Reps: R Hibbard, M Vunipola, D Cole, G Parling, D Lydiate, B Youngs, O Farrell, S Maitland. Eight Welsh players will be in the Lions first Test starting line-up to face Australia on Saturday, after Warren Gatland revealed his picks earlier today. Sam Waburton will captain the side in the No.7 jersey and he is joined by full-back Leigh Halfpenny, wings Alex Cuthbert and George North, centre Jonathan Davies, scrum-half Mike Phillips, second row Alun Wyn Jones and prop Adam Jones. The only surprise was the inclusion of Englishman Alex Corbisiero at loosehead, Mako Vunipola having been expected to get the nod butu having to make do with a place on the bench. That's the situation too for hooker Richard Hibbard, who has lost out to in-form Tom Youngs for the No.2 jersey. Hibbard and blindside Dan Lydiate are the Welshmen among the rep ...
Gatland’s central dilemma Posted on Jun 3, 2013 The midfield is the most competitive area of this Lions squad, as Warren Gatland has the luxury of four outstanding centres from which to choose. Jamie Roberts, Brian O’Driscoll, Manu Tuilagi and Jonathan Davies all offer very different skill sets, and it is crucial that every one of them is used by Gatland throughout both the midweek and Test matches sensibly so as to get the best out of each. Arguably, all four could lay down a claim to be deserving of a starting spot for the Test side, and it is very difficult to see how it is going to be decided. There is one player, however, that is nailed on to start if fit. Gatland loves Roberts – he is a natural leader predominantly through his consistent and intelligent decision making. He constantly gets across the gain line from first phase possession, and is the defensive captain for a Welsh team that has shown itself to be one of the most organised in this regard anywhere in the world. Add this to the fact ...
A Welsh-heavy Great British and Irish Lions side opened their Tour with a straightforward 59-8 victory over the Barbarians in Hong Kong. The Lions ran in eight tries – with seven of them coming from Welshmen. Captain Paul O'Connell was the only non-Welshman to get over as he scored the opening try of the Tour while scrum-half Mike Phillips and winger Alex Cuthbert helped themselves to two tries each. Jonathan Davies, Dan Lydiate and replacement Alun Wyn-Jones also went over on a day when Warren Gatland decided to start with nine Welsh players and 11 Lions debutants. England's Owen Farrell had an up and down performance at fly-half before being replaced by Ireland's Jonny Sexton who himself missed three, admittedly tough, conversion attempts. Kahn Fotuali'I off a lovely set-up from former All Black Joe Rokocoko scored the only try for an enthusiastic, but ultimately outmatched Barbarians side who should have had Schalk Brits sent-off for a clear punch on Farrell after just eight minutes only for referee ...
