Read his articles. They are embarrassing. ]

In what respect?

If it’s that he only seems to write about the Ospreys, there’s a few journalists on there who it looks like are allocated to regions. Simon Thomas mainly does articles about us. 

I disagree there Bubba, Simon seems to write about the blues as well, but Orders either writes about the ospreys, or about Wales, with particular love being paid to Welsh ospreys players. His fascination with Rhys Webb is quite disturbing. Just my opinion though, fine to disagree like.

Not a webb fan but williams wAs dire in the last ten mins sat,  i think webb would have kept more composure. Orders does idolise him though fair point

There appears to be a clamour for Tomos to start for Wales and he has even been mentioned as a Lion. I have struggled to date to really see what all the fuss is about frankly. For me Cawdor & Hardy are a lot better all round and in hindsight I think Lloyd Williams would have made a better fist of closing that game out.

I think I see Tomos as having a higher ceiling than the other 9s you mention.

So while Cawdor has the pace and spark as good as any 9 in the world. His game management, slow ball when he gets tired and kicking game has always been inconsistent.

Hardy certainly has a lot of growth potential too and that England game might be the making of him.

Then Lloyd is probably the most reliable game manager, and kicks well and focuses on getting the ball out quick - but doesn’t really have that xfactor threat that you need in International game now.

I think Tomos has the pace, the handling, the kicking skills as good as a De Klerk or DuPont but his tackling and defensive positioning is often caught short. 

His mistakes have cost us two very painful results in rwc semi-final and last week. But I think he’s got the most ability to learn and grow from these games simply because his core skills are so good.

Next 5/6 years I expect we’ll see him and Hardy fighting it out for starter/finisher roles.

A few journalists are writing about it. So it’s not as if he’s in his own little world with the article.

I don’t even know who this guy is as I barely notice who writes all the sports stuff that gets generated day in day out.  I only note Scarletnut and Simon Thomas  😂 I ain’t that obsessed - is there something wrong with me Dr? 😂

If ever you wanted a sample of the Swansea slant on life take a look at his 'winners and losers' of the weekend article, 4 of the 5 winners in rugby last weekend tie back to Swansea through AWJ, Tandy, Rhys Ruddock and a reference to Lions who come from Gorseinon.

Think he's just having a laugh with it now.

Orders journalism seems to be limited to ',winners and losers', picking sides based on his fantasies, endless speculation regards ospreys transfer targets, and of course his undying love for Rhys Webb.

I must admit though, I find moaning at his endless rubbish quite addictive
