Careful,Mr S.You'll have the Wespenpolizei fingering your virtual collar for that, however true it may be.

Also noticeable they all had their backs turned against Gatland at the end, discord in the camp?

If you're claiming you original prop is injured, it's not a bright idea to have him stripped off on the touchline ready to re-join the game. I thought the Welsh second team was a shambles.

Message to bench "just remind our 2 starting props they are injured and sit back down" Shameful gamesmanship from Welsh management but they do have form as we all remember!!

As ive said before. Make both bench props be able to play both sides. Or if they can't then make them have more props on the bench at the expense of other positions.

Shameful from Gatland but we all know to our cost he doesn't care about his reputation or have any personal pride.

Why have any players except props on the bench. 8 props - then there would be no problems. Be a bit more space in the latter stages too!

No? Ok - so 7 props and a hooker (which in any other area of life is a set up for a gag!)

On a serious point. Why have replacements in any other positions anyway?

I'll concede.. 6 props. A hooker. And one wild card (maybe a lock to ensure the line out can run - otherwise again it becomes a bit like league.)

I used to play with a scrum half who was built like a prop. Unstoppable from 5 metres.

I said it when Wasps, while Gatland and Edwards were in charge and kept pulling this trick, that it was simply cheating. As bad in itís way as what was eventually called out as Bloodgate. They were the cause of the extension of the bench from 7 to 8 for the extra prop and now they still abuse the laws and spirit of the game. To deny mighty Georgia. Shame on them. And I met a Welshman tonight who said the same before I did!

And there were shenanigans at the end. All I could see were two props stripped and ready to come on, and somehow they then became injured. No-one is going to admit they were fit to come on and no-one is going to admit to stretching reality. We have to take their word for it, so that's where we ought to leave it.

I disagree, they should assess on the balance of probabilities and issue a formal censure for cheating!

None of these things are adjudged on the basis of Reasonable Doubt so I agree Ian there is no reason not to cite and sanction them. But that's obviously not going to happen and they will continue to besmirch and defraud the game.

I thought nowadays, as a prop leaves the field, the ref/4th official establishes whether he is being substituted or being replaced due to injury? Have heard the question asked times. So, shouldn't the "status" of the replaced starting prop be known?

I think they do, but I'm sure Mr Gatland would be quick to point out to the official that once the initial tactical substitution had been made, that the medics had checked out the prop (just before sending him back on in order to keep your options open) and realised that he'd got a tight whatever.
