Six Nations 2024 – Kyle Sinckler says support for international players could be a lot better

Six Nations 2024: England officials say more players could follow Owen Farrell’s example and take a break from international play. Kyle Sinclair, the Bristol and England defender, believes more players could follow Owen Farrell’s example and call for more player support.

The England captain announced last week that he would sit out the Six Nations 2024 to prioritize his mental well-being and that of his family, with no date given for his return to international action. Following Farrell’s announcement, Tom Foley, the World Cup finals’ televised match official, became the second English official after Wayne Barnes to retire from Test rugby.

Sinckler Advocates for Comprehensive Player Support in Six Nations

Now Sinclair, capped 68 times for England, has called for more support to help players cope with the pressure and expectation of representing England. Telegraph Sport exclusively revealed last week that Rugby Union had opted for temporary mental health support for the men’s team during this year’s World Cup in France.

“The support system could be 100 percent across the board,” Sinclair told the BBC. It’s definitely a privilege to play for your country and it comes with a lot of responsibility, but I think the support system could be a lot better.”

The same people who will tell you one minute that you are not doing so well are the same people who sing your praises when things are going well. So that’s part and parcel of the job, Sinclair added.

To be honest, this is just the beginning. If you look at the workload that the players are under, especially the national team players… The guys were in the [World Cup] camp for five months, had a week off, and then came back and played week after week. out.

To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised [if more players did what Farrell did]. Professional sport is a pressure cooker, but when you play for England it becomes even more intense. Then, when you are a captain, and even more so a midfielder. So I’m surprised, but not surprised.

“Knowing Phase, for him to actually say, ‘Look, I’m wrong,’ then something must be wrong because this guy is going to go into battle no matter what. I hope he gets the help he needs and the rest he deserves.”

Looking Ahead: Long-Term Benefits of Player Support

Danny Care, a former club-mate of Sinckler and a team-mate during rugby’s blue-riband event, echoed the prop’s concerns and called on all future World Cup participants to receive three weeks of mandatory rest after the global tournament.

In terms of players needing more support and help, yes [I agree],” Care told the Rugby Union Weekly podcast. Nobody really wants to say they’re struggling with anything. I’ve spent the last five months with Owen and I know it hurt him… when he got the red card and didn’t know if he could play at the World Cup.

We would go out anywhere, in Paris, and everyone knows him. We were fine, we could go for a walk and have a coffee, but everywhere he went people wanted to take 20 selfies with him. He is currently England’s most famous rugby player. You can also read France Six Nations 2024 Redemption Quests and Anticipated Clashes.

There could be more support. I know RPA is behind us, but I think if you go and have such an intense World Cup, you won’t have to be seen at your club for three weeks – morally, like anything else… You have to top up your account immediately. You will see the benefits of this later on.

“I hope clubs will take notice of what Owen is doing and perhaps provide additional support.”

Hollie Davidson to become first female assistant referee in men’s Six Nations

Scotland’s Holly Davidson will make history this season when she becomes the first female official to serve as assistant referee in a men’s Six Nations match. The 31-year-old has appointed as an assistant for England’s match against Wales at Twickenham on February 10, World Rugby has announced. Davidson will joined by fellow assistant referee Ben O’Keefe and New Zealander James Doleman will officiate.

Davidson refereed the Women’s World Cup final between England and New Zealand in 2022 and served as assistant referee for three men’s World Cup warm-up Tests this year, including England against Fiji. It’s a huge honor to named as one of the assistant referees for the Guinness Six Nations 2024, Davidson told the Scottish Rugby Union website. I am immensely proud to be the first female official in Scotland to do so.

I’m looking forward to taking part in such a world famous match and can’t wait to start 2024 at such an exciting tournament. The long-awaited opening of the Six Nations between France and Ireland in Paris on February 2 will overseen by English official Carl Dixon.

Five New Zealand referees appointed to Six Nations 2024 gigs

Five New Zealand referees have assigned to next year’s Six Nations 2024 tournament, with James Doleman, Ben O’Keefe and Paul Williams again overseeing one match each, as they did this year. In addition, Brendon Pickerill will again appointed as TMO for two matches, while Angus Mabey will make his competition debut as assistant referee.

O’Keeffe, who whistled for this year’s World Cup semi-final between South Africa and England, will take charge of the Wales Vs Scotland first-round match in Cardiff on February 4 (NZ time) as part of an official all-Kiwi team. with Doleman and Mabey on the sidelines and Pickerill in the box.

On the same day, Williams, who was New Zealand’s second World Cup referee, will oversee the Italy v England game in Rome. Doleman, who only went to this year’s World Cup as an AR and who made his Six Nations debut in England’s win over Italy this year, will take charge of the second-round game between England and Wales at Twickenham.

France Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations Tickets | Guinness Six Nations 2024 Tickets

The match on 11 February (NZT) will see Pickerill, who was TMO at the World Championships, up top, with O’Keeffe running as assistant assistant alongside Scotland’s Holly Davidson, who will make history as the first woman to hold that role in the match on 11 February (NZT) men’s competitions.

Although O’Keeffe involved in the fourth and fifth rounds of this year’s competition, Kiwi officials’ duties at next year’s tournament will end after the second round, meaning they will all be on site for the entire Super Rugby Pacific tournament, which begins on February 23 . Like this year, the Six Nations 2024 will feature 15 different referees across the 15 matches.

New Faces in Refereeing Lineup for Six Nations 2024

Twelve returns from this season, with England’s Wayne Barnes (who retired), Scotland’s Matt Adamson and Australia’s Damon Murphy replaced by Andrea Piardi, who will become the first Italian to referee a Six Nations match, and fellow debutants Christophe Ridley (England) and Pierre Brousseau (France).

Announcing the appointments on Wednesday (NZT), World Rugby said that with the new Nations League starting in 2026 and the next World Cup in 2027 being an expanded 24-team event, the selection of referees reflects the “ongoing strategic match-up”. formal development to create greater depth and broader national representation.”

As we enter a new four-year Rugby World Cup cycle and ultimately the start of a new international calendar that will boost Test rugby, we focused on working with unions and competitions to create more opportunities to identify and develop matches for the next generations. refereeing talent, said World Rugby director of rugby Phil Davis.

“This choice reflects that commitment while still largely retaining the expertise that lies at the core of the DNA of modern refereeing. We also committed to working more closely with international coaches and players to ensure we are shaping the future of co-refereeing.”

Wales get Six Nations boost and French experts pick out best Welsh player

Cardiff head coach Matt Sherratt says Taulupe Faletau is ready to take part in Wales’ Six Nations campaign. The back-row forward broke his arm in the World Cup win over Georgia, ending his tournament in the group stage. Faletau had been a colossal player for Wales up to this point and Warren Gatland may have been concerned that the No. 8 would not be fit for next year’s Six Nations.

Luckily for Wales and Cardiff, the 32-year-old looks set to be back on the pitch in the new year. The injury was predicted to last 12 to 14 weeks and there is no change to that: he will not be back any sooner, Sherratt said. He will return after the time needed to recover, [and] we look forward to the new year. Wales and Cardiff striker Josh Adams is expected to return from a shoulder injury in December.

French rugby experts pick out Wales’ best player

French club Midi Olympique have selected their squad for the Rugby World Cup and included a Welshman in their XV.

As expected. The squad is dominated by players from the two finalists – South Africa and New Zealand. A total of five Springboks and five All Blacks were selected, while the publication only picked two players from their country’s squad: hooker Piato Mauwaka and defender Thomas Ramos. There is no place for French skipper Antoine Dupont.

England’s Owen Farrell, Ireland’s Bundy Aki and Wales captain Jack Morgan are the final three players to be named in the team of the tournament. XV World Championship Midi Olympique: Thomas Ramos; Will Jordan, Jesse Kriel, Bandi Aki, Mark Telea; Owen Farrell, Aaron Smith; Ox Nche, Piato Mauwaka, France Malherbe, Eben Etzebeth, Scott Barrett, Jacques Morgan, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Ardie Savea.

Sam Cane banned after RWC final red

New Zealand captain Sam Cane has been suspended for three matches for his red card in the Rugby World Cup final. The flanker became the first player to receive a red card in the final after his shoulder tackle touched the head of South African player Jesse Creel. A yellow card was initially waved, but after a few minutes the bunker replaced it with a red one.

Six Nations Tickets

At the hearing, Kane said he did not believe his foul play merited a red card, but the panel concluded the tackle was reckless and involved a high degree of danger.

A six-week sanction was initially imposed, which was reduced to three weeks due to Kane’s disciplinary record and the remorse he had shown. He will miss two matches for Tokyo Sangoliat, who have just been signed by Wales midfielder Gareth Anscombe, and a third game will be canceled if he goes to tackle school.

Warren Gatland namechecks emerging Welsh rugby players he wants to see more of

Last week the Wales manager mentioned several players who are not currently part of his squad. Being tested by Warren Gatland at a press conference is not an exact science. This can often seem a little random, but it probably makes more sense than it seems.

The question may be asked about one player and the Wales manager may choose to focus on another. And sometimes he just chooses a name to praise without any prompting. For example, when asked about Leigh Halfpenny’s performance against Australia in 2018, Gatland went off topic somewhat before declaring Josh Adams his man of the match, praising the then-inexperienced wingers.

If he wants a name to go public, he will find a way – no matter the question asked. With that in mind, around the week of the clash with the Barbarians there were a number of players who didn’t point out that Gatland had still managed to find time to talk.

Six Nations Tickets
Six Nations Tickets

First to receive a mention despite not being in the squad was uncapped Cardiff player Will Davies-King, with Gatland discussing him when asked about the decision to call up tight ends Lloyd Fairbrother and Harry O’Connor following injuries to Keiron Assiratti and Leon Brown.

“We’ve talked about someone like Will Davies-King before and we’ve invested a bit of time in him and we want to see him develop, but unfortunately he doesn’t have a lot of opportunities at the moment, Gatland said. And while we have used the national team in the past to develop players for the future, we just felt it was the wrong decision for this game.”

Looking Ahead to the Six Nations

While Fairbrother featured in the Dragons’ first two games and O’Connor featured in one of the Scarlets’ matches in South Africa, Davies-King did not feature in either of Cardiff’s first games.

Of course, the sample size is small – just two matches – and having seen Cardiff’s tough Asiratti pull out with an injury this week, perhaps Gatland was reluctant to return to the Arms Park side and take another anchor away from them before the match. their derby with the Scarlets.

Davies-King will come off the bench in Llanelli at the weekend for his first start of the season. Having been part of Wales’ wider World Cup training squad before being released with a foot injury in June, it is clear the mention means he is still part of Gatland’s thinking.

Perhaps saying there won’t be many opportunities (given there haven’t been many in the third week of the season) is a deliberate attempt to get Davies-King to play more ahead of the Six Nations.

Having spent a lot of time in camp over the summer, Gatland may want players who know the Six Nations environment – given that it is doubtful that all three World Cup standouts are currently based outside Wales. If that’s the case, then Davis-King and Assiratti are firmly on the list.

All the other players whose names Gatland checked are midfielders. Speaking about trying out scrum-half Tomos Williams in the position, he highlighted the need for more options before moving on to list three potential candidates. Not a lot of detail is offered and the list far from exhaustive, but it is an interesting read nonetheless.

A Glimpse of Hope for the 2024 Six Nations

“I think Callum Sheedy is playing good rugby again at Bristol, Gatland said. It’s good to see him picked and I’ll go watch him at some point. And then I’ll see how some of the other ten players go. Will Reed and I’d like to see Ben Thomas play some games in Game 10 as well.”

It’s been a tough couple of years for the Bristol midfielder since Sheedy. Sheedy’s last of 16 appearances came as a substitute in the 2022 Six Nations defeat to Italy. Later that day, he discovered that his father had stage four bowel cancer. He recently spoke candidly about how he is coping with the passing of his father. Six Nations 2024 fans can book Wales Vs Scotland Tickets on our website at exclusively discounted prices.

Following the defeat to Italy, Sheedy, who played a role in Wales’ Six Nations victory in 2021, has left out of four squads in a row. But clearly Gatland’s comments suggest he is on the radar ahead of the  Six Nations 2024.

Competing for a Spot in the Six Nations

The day after that test, Sheedy showed what he could do – assisting Rich Lane in each of his three tries against Exeter with a series of assists. As for the other names mentioned by Gatland, it is interesting to see that they are both in Gatland’s thoughts.

Uncapped Dragons midfielder Reed has made just 18 professional appearances before this season, with the Dragons wary of throwing the 22-year-old into the squad too soon.

With Sam Davis and JJ Hanrahan gone, he will now take to the field to battle Angus O’Brien for the No. 10 jersey at Rodney Parade. After coming on as a substitute in the first two matches, he played the full 80 minutes against Munster at the weekend. Reid’s leadership qualities impressed Dragons coach Dai Flanagan last season, although Flanagan hinted O’Brien would be a contender for Wales’ Six Nations squad.

Warren Gatland urges Wales players to stake claim for Six Nations spot

With the Six Nations Championship fast approaching, Welsh head coach Warren Gatland has sent out a clear message to his squad: it’s time to prove your worth. Gatland, who has returned to lead the national team after his spell with the British and Irish Lions, is known for his no-nonsense approach, and he’s leaving no room for complacency as players vie for their places in the Six Nations squad.

Wales head coach Warren Gatland believes his players can set the marker for Six Nations selection in Saturday’s clash against the Barbarians. Gatland is fielding 12 Wales players for the Rugby World Cup in his starting line-up at the Principality Stadium.

But it also leaves out all players based outside Wales, with the star-studded list topped by the likes of Louis Rees-Zammit, Nick Thompkins and Will Rowlands. The uncapped game is a tribute to former Wales forwards Alun Wyn Jones and Justin Tipuric, who retired from Test rugby earlier this year and will play in Barbarians colours.

They will be joined by defender Lee Halfpenny, who will make his last appearance for Wales after recently announcing his decision to withdraw from international play. However, the fixture’s scheduling has been criticized, particularly as the Welsh regions Ospreys, Scarlets, Cardiff and Dragons all host United Rugby Championship matches this weekend.

The Challenge for Regional Players: Making Their Mark in Wales Six Nations Squad

The Scarlets host Cardiff just an hour after the game against Wales ended and although Gatland named a squad of just 23 men to help with the availability of regional players, all four teams have weakened. This is Wales’ last game before their Six Nations opener against Scotland on February 3, and elements of Gatland’s group for the tournament will have a new look.

Dan Biggar ended his Test career after the World Cup, while fellow backs Liam Williams and Gareth Anscombe is set to play in Japan in the first half of next year.

Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations Tickets
Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations Tickets

Tom Rogers, Ben Carter, Teddy Williams, Harry O’Connor and Thane Plumtree will be among those looking to impress on Saturday and Gatland said: There is an opportunity without players outside Wales for people to put a marker down in terms of participation in the Six nations.

“I was talking to the players about it earlier this week and I said they want to be in a situation where it’s harder for you to get into the team but easy to get out of. I’ve shown in the past that I have a lot of loyalty to players who come out and put on that jersey and do well.”

And for those players who do, it’s a good opportunity to get into the Six Nations. Now we have kind of drawn a line under the World Championship and are talking about the next cycle and how we can cope with it – about which group of players will make it through.

Sicx Nations – Young Welsh Talent Takes the Stage as Veterans Prepare for Barbarians Clash

We don’t have enough players, but these young Welsh players who are here have a good chance to go out there and see if they can prove themselves. Jones, meanwhile, will captain the Barbarians, who coached by Eddie Jones and Scott Robertson, while Tipuric will play alongside back-row colleagues Michael Hooper and Rob Valetini.

Nine of the starting line-up played at the World Cup, including Valetini, Fiji forward Celestino Ravutahumada, Argentina midfielder Nicolas Sanchez and Wallabies prop Taniela Tupou. But it will a special day for Jones, Tipuric and Halfpenny – who have 352 caps to their name – and that is not lost on Wales captain Jack Morgan.

“Their professionalism and the standard they set as players is a huge inspiration for the young guys and what we look like, Morgan said. Even at the end of their careers they are probably one of the last people on the training pitch who are still trying to get better and improve.”

Six Nations 2024 – Warren Gatland asks for patience as Wales build new generation of players

Warren Gatland has stressed the importance of patience in developing the next generation of Wales internationals. Welsh rugby said goodbye to three of its biggest names – Alun Wyn Jones, Justin Tipuric and Leigh Halfpenny – in a tribute match that saw Wales beat their Principality Stadium rivals the Barbarians 49-26.

Half-back Dan Biggar retired after the Rugby World Cup, meaning Wales coach Gatland has lost more than 500 caps this year, while scrum-half Reece Webb has also left international rugby. Influential defenders Liam Williams and Gareth Anscombe, meanwhile, will be unavailable for this season’s Six Nations as they begin new club careers in Japan. Six Nations 2024 fans can book Wales Vs Scotland Tickets on our website at exclusively discounted prices.

But new faces have already emerged – players such as captain Jack Morgan, Sam Costelow, Dewey Lake, Dafydd Jenkins and Christ Tshiunza, all of whom have a World Cup in their locker. And there are others who did not force Gatland’s team to move to France, but sooner or later may come knocking on his door.

“We’re really excited about some young people coming in, Gatland said. You have to be patient with them, you will have to endure a little pain.”

Warren Gatland

You have to be patient with them, you will have to endure a little pain. It is likely that some of the symmetry between the (Welsh) regions and us was not the same. Unfortunately, we probably used the national team almost as a way to develop these players, playing international rugby, almost out of necessity, because we had weaknesses in some positions.

Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations Tickets
Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations Tickets

“Then, because they end up playing international rugby and doing well, they come back and go to their regions. Sometimes we make mistakes. It’s just making sure we work together as regions and as a national team in terms of where we have holes and players developing.”

I have long been a supporter of the Legionnaires. I think they are good for the game, especially here in Wales. But I have always said that we need world-class foreign players, and if we need to pay a lot of money for them, then we should do it.

Unfortunately, we tend to hire mid-level journeymen aged 27 or 28 or even older, which tends to stunt the development of some young people. We must do this correctly both for the regions and for us.

“We know the financial situation. We’re all going through some pain as a national system, but now is the time to do this and then think about what the picture might look like in a couple of years’ time?”

Wales’ Rugby Resurgence: From Turmoil to Triumph

A year that began with Wales riddled with off-field problems that undoubtedly contributed to a dismal Six Nations campaign ended with five wins from six and a fourth consecutive World Cup quarter-final appearance. The next World Cup cycle, culminating in Australia in 2027, has already begun and center George North will be part of that negotiation process.

North, who has played four World Cups, will be 35 years old if he makes the squad Down Under but has already made it clear that he has no current plans to follow some of his former team-mates into retirement test. Gatland added: We’ve had a good chat with him and he wants to continue to be available at the moment.

Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations Tickets
Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations Tickets

He’s been playing for a long time – since he was 18 – but he has experience and leadership qualities and gives us a voice. He’s probably more important to us in the short term, and then it’s a matter of whether he makes a decision on whether he can continue the next cycle. He’ll be 35 at the next World Cup. Whether he can go that far or not, if he tries to do it, I’m fine with that. It’s just a guarantee that we’ll keep talking.

The likely Wales team for the Six Nations 2024 amid major moves abroad

The Rugby World Cup is just over a month away and while Warren Gatland’s immediate priority will be to ensure Wales perform well in France, there is an element of long-term planning within his training for Six Nations squad.

With players retiring or moving to overseas clubs after the World Cup, there are likely to be quite a few changes to the Six Nations 2024 squad. WalesOnline takes a look at what the Wales team could look like at the end of the World Cup.

Back three

Liam Williams has already confirmed he will not feature in the Six Nations following his move to Kubota Spears in Japan, while Gatland is certain to move on from Leigh Halfpenny, who turns 35 in December. Both Halfpenny and Williams dominated the number 15 shirt for over a decade, and while both have been formidable servants of the game in Wales, it is time for some fresh blood.

Gatland included Scarlets player Tom Rogers and Dragons player Kai Evans in his World Cup training squad. Both are unlikely to make the finals, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a redshirt future.

While Evans is a great player, Rodgers is more likely to succeed. The 24-year-old’s style is not too different from the experienced Williams.

Rodgers is a very dangerous runner with a habit of getting past defenders, as well as Test rugby speed and an intelligent footballer. The Chefnaytin man has good positional sense and a brave defender, but his challenge is consistency and repetition.

Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations 2024 Tickets
Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations 2024 Tickets

If he can improve his game, there is no reason why he cannot at least be a serious contender to start for Wales in the Six Nations. In terms of striker, Louis Rees-Zammit and Josh Adams are likely to keep their places, although another option would be to move one to full-back and put Rio Dyer on the flank.

Centres for Six Nations Squad

Gatland is already looking to the future with three uncapped midfielders in his World Cup squad. Jonny Williams could be the answer in the inside center position as the Scarlets star has the ability to get over the winning line and is also an intelligent footballer, but injuries have halted his progress.

The uncapped Max Llewellyn, who left Cardiff to sign for Gloucester, is a player with a high ceiling and his size will help him greatly in his transition to Test rugby. Gatland also has Mason Grady, who showed glimpses of his potential during the Six Nations, while uncapped pair Keiron Williams and Joe Roberts have attracted attention at regional level for the Ospreys and Scarlets respectively.

Don’t forget the experienced Nick Thompkins, who has been the glue of Wales’ midfield since his debut in 2020, while George North will remain an important part of the team. At Test level, it’s not about individual players, but about creating a cohesive partnership in midfield, in the same way that Jamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies created an almost telepathic understanding. I can see Gatland possibly favoring a Llewellyn/Grady partnership, but time will tell.

Centres: Max Llewellyn, Mason Grady

Half-backs for Wales Six Nations team

Gareth Anscombe’s move to Suntory Sungoliat has ruled him out of the Six Nations, although the talented playmaker is still hoping to feature on Wales’ tour of Australia in the summer of 2024. It is unclear whether Dan Biggar will continue to play Test rugby after the World Cup. Cup, and it would not be surprising if Toulon required him to concentrate on helping the French giants regain their former glory.

Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations 2024 Tickets
Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations 2024 Tickets

If that happens, Owen Williams will remain Wales’ most experienced No.10, but even so Sam Costelow is the core player Gatland is likely to build his team around ahead of 2027. The Scarlets star has a very well balanced game, is a dangerous running threat, has outstanding kicking both off the hand and off the tee, while his defense is very strong.

But it was his game management and ability to solve problems on the field that put him ahead of the rest. Don’t forget Callum Sheedy, who could return to winning ways if he performs well for Bristol Bears in the Gallagher Premiership, while Wales U20 star Dan Edwards is a player to watch. Six Nations 2024 rugby fans can book Wales Vs Scotland Tickets on our website at exclusively discounted prices.

At half-time, the World Cup may well be Gareth Davies’ last hurray at Test level, although Tomos Williams and Kieran Hardy can be expected to become regulars for at least the foreseeable future. New Dragons signing Dane Blacker is a contender, but Scarlets Wales U20 number nine Archie Hughes has the highest ceiling of all.

Half-backs: Tomos Williams and Sam Costelow.

Front-row for Six Nations

It’s doubtful there will be too many changes in the front row, with the out-of-touch Nicky Smith and Gareth Thomas in a good position for at least the next couple of years, and Corey Domachowski and Kemsley Mathias for the future.

Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations 2024 Tickets
Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations 2024 Tickets

Dewey Lake has what it takes to dominate Wales over the next decade, while Ryan Elias and Elliot Dee will be on hand to keep the Ospreys player honest. This is on a narrow support where there may be some kind of transition.

Thomas Francis has done Wales a huge service since his Test debut in 2015, but he has signed for French second division club Provence. Pro D2 is a tough league, but is the standard high enough to get you straight into the Six Nations?

This remains to be seen. Dillon Lewis has signed for Harlequins and while he is formidable on the park, his performance leaves a lot to be desired. Montpellier defender Henry Thomas has a fantastic opportunity to make his mark during the upcoming World Cup warm-up games, but Gatland needs a younger hotshot like Kieron Assiratty or Sam Wainwright to break through.

Front-row: Nicky Smith, Dewi Lake, Henry Thomas

Second-row for Six Nations

It is quite possible that there will be some kind of transition here. Will Rowlands is certainly a prime candidate, but playing week after week in Racing 92’s tough top 14 could take its toll.

Playing in Wales gives the players the benefit of being looked after, which can be argued to keep them fresh for Test rugby. Gatland is a big fan of giant Ospreys lock Adams Beard, who still has a lot to give at Test level.

Wales need to add depth in their second row and it would be a surprise if Dafydd Jenkins, Teddy Williams, Rhys Davies and Ben Carter don’t get more exposure to international rugby. Fitness permitting, Rowlands and Beard should still be the Six Nations’ best players, but Dafydd Jenkins will be hot on their heels.

Second-rows: Adam Beard and Will Rowlands

Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations 2024 Tickets
Wales Six Nations Tickets | Six Nations 2024 Tickets

Back-row

Taulupe Faletau will turn 36 at the 2027 World Cup, so it is vital that Wales find their long-term successor over the next four years. Faletau remains one of the best free forwards in the world and is undoubtedly the first name on Wales’ squad list.

He is likely to remain the Six Nations opener, but Gatland could experiment a bit in Australia next summer, with Morgan Morris and Carwyn Tuipulotu coming into the equation. Wales are well positioned for the open side flanker for the next decade, with Jack Morgan and Tommy Reffell already top Test players who will improve.

It will be interesting to see what direction Gatland goes with his blindside after the World Cup. It is highly unlikely that 35-year-old Dan Lydiate will continue to play after the World Cup, although it is unclear what the position is of Ross Moriarty, who made himself unavailable for the World Cup after signing with French club Brive, who were subsequently relegated from the top 14. .

Of course, Gatland could have opted for the dual option of Morgan and Reffell at the open side, while he has put a lot of effort into developing Christ Tshiunza. But I suspect Thane Plumtree will be the long-term answer.
