Huw Bennett Called up to Welsh Squad
Something to put a bit of panic in you. The BBC ticker is reporting that Huw Bennett has been added to the Welsh squad to give cover to Hibbard. Great news for the Irish then...

That is putting a bit of panic in me. Dear Christ are we really that badly off for hookers? What about Steve Jones at the Drags or TRT? Neither are any good but better than bloody Bennett!

Hell it's only the Oirish scrum, Oompa would be able to scrummage against them and at least he can throw

Even worse news - Rees injured, Bennett could be starting!!!
Quote:Wales have injury concerns over captain Matthew Rees, James Hook, Ryan Jones and Morgan Stoddart before Saturday's Six Nations match with Ireland.
All four have been taking a "limited part" training, but Wales are hopeful they will be fit to start in Cardiff.

Back-up hooker Richard Hibbard picked up a should injury playing for the Ospreys on Saturday, so regional team-mate Huw Bennett has been called up.

Hang on a minute, Bennett isn't great, and I'm no happier to see him there than anyone else, but Thomas Rhys Thomas? Come off it! He's the worst hooker in Wales! I'll never forget seeing him warming up at halftime at the Arms Park once, he was practising his throwing to a ball boy, who couldn't have been more than 13, and the kid was significantly more accurate than he was... Threw it in a nice spiral too.

I also agree with Machine - TRT is poor, but Bennett has gone backwards at lightspeed. 08 Bennett would be a useful option, current Bennett is even craper than TRT imo. Bennett on is giving up on lineouts altogether

Retired from international rugby on grounds of being too crap

We're simply arguing degrees of crapness though

Rees has become quality. A damn good scrummaging hooker and great around the park. Lineout is still dodgy (though far better than it once was) but then I am not 100% convinced by our jumpers either

Oh well, it could be worse, the French have just benched Harinordoquy and let Chabal keep his place – let's all be thankful Marc Livremont isn't making the Wales team selections....
