The Six Nations squad Warren Gatland should now pick after everything we’ve seen

Warren Gatland is set to reveal his Six Nations squad in the upcoming weeks, shifting the focus from the recent Christmas celebrations to the tournament starting in a month. Gatland and his coaching team have been assessing various players, considering their performances in festive derbies, the English Premiership, and the top French divisions. The challenge for Gatland lies in assembling a squad that can vie for the championship while also nurturing talent for the future Rugby World Cup. Notable players in contention include Immanuel Feyi-Waboso, a promising winger, and the debate around the absence of experienced full-backs Leigh Halfpenny and Liam Williams. The back-three selection may feature Cai Evans, Cameron Winnett, Josh Adams, Rio Dyer, Louis Rees-Zammit, Mason Grady, and Immanuel Feyi-Waboso.

In the center positions, Gatland is likely to rely on the partnership of Nick Tompkins and George North, with options like Joe Roberts, Ben Thomas, and Johnny Williams. The fly-half dilemma emerges with Sam Costelow, Ioan Lloyd, and Owen Williams being considered, while the scrum-half slots are expected to be occupied by Tomos Williams, Gareth Davies, and possibly Kieran Hardy.

The front-row composition poses challenges due to tightheads playing outside of Wales, with Tomas Francis, Dillon Lewis, Kieran Assiratti, and Leon Brown as potential selections. Gareth Thomas remains a solid choice at loosehead, supported by Corey Domachowski and, if fit, Nicky Smith. Dewi Lake, Ryan Elias, and Elliot Dee are likely hooker choices.

In the second-row, Adam Beard, Dafydd Jenkins, Will Rowlands, Teddy Williams, and Rhys Davies are contenders. The back-row situation is complicated by Jac Morgan’s injury, making Tommy Reffell a probable openside starter. Taulupe Faletau’s status adds uncertainty, but Aaron Wainwright, James Botham, Josh Macleod, Christ Tshiunza, and Morgan Morris are strong candidates, offering versatility and depth in the back row.
