No idea what happened, but we may lose Duncan Weir as a result.

At least we've got excellent back up in Jono, hopefully his boot will be as accurate as Dunky's.

And maybe chances for Shillcock and van Breda (who I still can't see as staying unfortunately)

If we play Shillcock or SVB then we have almost as good a kicker. In my view SVB is better kicking from hand than DW.

If Du Preez is available for us tomorrow then i'm sure Weir is too.

Hensen opens his lips and what comes out??


While this has provided clarity as to where the fly-half stands at the moment, it has also been divisive. His attitude, whereby he has created a situation in which it is either him or Townsend, has been deemed selfish by some.

Further, Scotland’s encouraging performances against Ireland and England – although they lost both games – have relieved some of the pressure that was on Townsend after he expelled the former Glasgow Warriors player.

Henson, however, has said on Twitter that he feels Russell’s pain. The Welshman had equally been embroiled in a number of situations akin to Russell’s while at Toulon, Cardiff Blues and Bath.

The now-retired talisman took aim at senior player groups in squads, which he says, “Normally consists of the most unskillful, high body fat percentage, double standards type of guys but boy they can talk a good game!”

Well there you go!

Russell's view is out there - Times an Wales online - he considers Townsend a knob to paraphrase myself
