    2020 Guinness 6 Nations

    Wales' RWC effort has repercussions..


    https://www.irishtimes.com/sport/rug...oits-1.4080479
    Wales duo Rhys Patchell and Jonathan Davies face months out of action as they prepare to have surgery for injuries sustained in the Rugby World Cup, the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) said on Tuesday.
    Outhalf half Patchell injured his shoulder in Wales’ 40-17 defeat by New Zealand in the third place playoff while his Scarlets team mate Davies injured his knee earlier in the tournament in Japan.
    “Patchell is expected to return to play between 12-16 weeks following a shoulder injury whereas Davies faces at least six months recovering from knee surgery,” a WRU statement said.
    Their recovery periods mean both players are set to miss the Six Nations tournament beginning in February next year, where Wales will look to defend their title. Wales play Ireland at the Aviva on February 8th

                            Well mix of new and established, should add spice to training, the match day 23 +3 is the big call

                              Fair play to Jack O'Donohue who has played himself into the squad with a string of great performances, despite not having a settled backrow position. He may not make the match day cut, but it's a big step in the right direction given his problems of the past couple of seasons. Quite an acknowledgement of his talent, edging in ahead of Rhys Ruddock.
