Mefin Davies, Will James and Gareth Cooper were selected for Wales whilst playing at Glaws and Gareth Delve suffered his latest knee injury whilst actually on Wales duty so playing at Glaws obviously is not an issue. The way he is going, if Delve stays fit, he will be back playing for Wales soon enough and may even be an outside bet for the Lions.
Personally all it tells me is Delve has been injured. Powell had one great game against Glaws at the Millenium but I have not seen anything from him since that has matched that level whilst Jones is considered to be a leader but in my book he was quiet for Wales against Ireland and didnt do a lot for the Os v Glaws (although in fairness he was not alone in that). As for Davies, was it the move to Glaws that killed his international career or was it just co-incidence and actually better options became available? Will James was unlucky to be picked in a poor Welsh side where no one came out with any credit. Gough and Wynn-Jones are undoubtedly Wales' premier lock pairing but I would think James is going to be challenging for a squad place, particularly if he carries on displaying the form he currently is for Glaws.

Oh, he is. Very much better than Hook but just not appreciated by those who look for other things.
After Saturday, i have to drag this article back up. Compare Nicky's very astute display with the limp and clueless Hook (not that he was the the worst Osprey on Sunday), how can people continue to argue Nicky is 'inconstant' and can't do it under pressure.
For me, NR has to now be Wales No.2 fly half.
So by saying this you think he's made the wrong desicion in moving? Because to be Back up 10 he'd have to play in Wales surely??
