I think Wales’ opener is no given, Les Bleus could do us a favour.

All the press reporting this morning that Daly is set to be retained at 15 :smt009 and Manu play 12 with Slade outside :smt018

Now I'm worried.

Jake Kerr starts on the bench for Scotland. Great young player and deserves his chance. Rock solid at the set piece.
