The Gatland end game is enhancing is CV for the NZ job. After what we’ve seen on this tour, he’ll never even get an interview.

There may have been a case for dropping BOD from the starting 15 but to drop him for Davies is a farce. I think he completed two passes in both test games so far. Has shown nothing in attack. Wingers will be starved and tackles missed with him at 12.

      A team selection like this might actually win him favours with the French selectors! If I hear him mention star signs in a press conference I will understand what he’s doing!
