    Wales v Tonga

    Owen Williams has returned to fitness, and is available for selection. Also returning to fitness is Ian Evans. True to form, Gatland has called up another uncapped player, Scarlets prop Rob Evans.

    Here's one that could kick off, PRL have intervened and prevented Paul James playing in the Wales v Aus game. He is available for Tonga though. Also an interesting few comments on the availability of George North. Sets up a nice WRU v PRL spat.

    "The policy of Premiership Rugby (PRL) - the English clubs umbrella organisation - is that players should not be released by the clubs for such out-of-window games."

        What's the new avatar Owain?

        The PRL don't sound like they are trying to woo the WRU anyway.

              Here is a recent documentary on the subject, if the history surrounding it interests you?

                    For a moment there I had Arthur Emyr in my head.

                    Decent side. Looking forward to see both Amos and Owen Williams.
                    Not sure about James (take out your entire back line, and pass the ball to nobody) Hook at 10 though.

                      Well, there's one less Tongan to worry about :

                      Tonga prop Sona Taumalolo was banned for four weeks on Tuesday and will miss Friday's Test against Wales in Cardiff.


                      Taumalolo was sent off for punching France lock Yoann Maestri, also shown a red card for hitting Taumalolo in the same incident, during last weekend's fiery 38-18 win for Les Bleus in Le Havre.

                        I think the Tongan scrum half is a bit too lightweight for international rugby.

                          Tonga score a lovely try on the cut back to open their account. 17-7 Wales now.

                            One of the Tongans get his head on the wrong side of a tackle is sparked clean out and Tipuric rolls him into the recovery position after play has moved on.
