    "Trouble" for the Welsh tour already. Josh Adams, Luke Charteris and Tomas Francis have been replaced in the squad as the Premiership is not allowing them to play v South Africa in the US as it is outside the official test window which starts the week after.

          Smart move by Rassie.

            Disappointed Georgia didn't get a bite off one of the bigger teams, Argentina would be a tough test for them and see where they really are.

              South Africa not surprisingly focusing on the English series rather than the one off test in Washington DC v Wales. 7 new caps in the starting team with 6 more on the bench including a certain Thomas Du Toit.

                Probably the right call by Rassie- doing well in the home series against England (even if they are worse than they were 2 years ago)- is a marker of meaningful progress than a game in the US against Wales - and, of course, the new caps show off his determination to change things (as does captaincy)- and they might get something anyway out of the Welch game- Rassie is a strategist-

                  From a SA point of view, get a look at guys from the deeper squad for future reference whilst keeping the big boys at home. Getting a bag of gold as well no doubt.

                  From a US/World Rugby pov, not sure it is going to attract more punters into rugby.

                  Wales must be getting a decent wedge of cash to play this game. Long season and a tough 2 test series in Argentina awaits - Jaguares have come to the Super Rugby party it seems.

                    The yank camera operators haven’t a notion how to cover a rugby game.

                        What planet are Eddie Butler and Williams on?

                        Saffer pack literally went through the Welsh hooker and locks on the last scrum and they say tis grand?

                          Is that our former player Thomas DuToit at tight head?
