And yet another Welshman is quite content to lay into Dylan Hartley before Friday's match, as Jonathan Davies throws in his two pence worth (or should that be one pence worth due to Davies's level of punditry...)
I am absolutey amazed by Gatland and Davies coming out and making such a big deal of the Hartley situation because in my opinion its going to backfire spectacularly if they aren't careful.
It's clear that the Welsh will target Hartley, no question, but going so public was a huge mistake. Emotions are going to be running high, Welsh players will want to make their mark and its going to end in giving away stupid penalties and yellow cards.
I personally think that this is going to play into England's hands, the game will turn into a forward dominated exchange and although England d not have te speed and lineout abiliy in the absence of Lawes and Croft they do have a big advantage in terms of power, especially now in he front row.
To be honest, I think Wales are slight favourites but Gatland's antics could end up givin Hartley and the England pack with that little extra reason to raise their game and beat Wales.
Gatland it is time to stop running yur mouth before the big games, and let the players do the talking on the pitch. Should be a cracker...(how long before the first yellow card?)
