Warren Gatland: My Wales Six Nations squad, England's threat... and the future of Adam Jones and Alex Cuthbert...
Wales warm up for All Blacks with tight Fijian battle. Wales warmed up for next week's clash with the All Blacks in Cardiff with a hard-fought 17-13 win over Fiji in the second international of the four-match series. Warren Gatland's troops outscored their Pacific opponents by three tries to one in front of a crowd of 61,326 at the Millennium Stadium as they bounced back from last week's late loss to Australia. Wings George North and Alex Cuthbert touched down in the first quarter as Wales began brightly against another of their opponents at next year's Rugby World Cup, with forward dominance then bringing about a penalty try just before half time. Fiji saw prop Campese Ma'afu sent off 12 minutes after the restart but Wales were unable to stretch the gap and giant centre Nemani Nadolo ensured the result remained in the balance until the death when he grabbed an interception score with less than two minutes remaining. Wales were up and running with just five minutes on the clock as North finished off a fin ...
Sam Warburton on standby for starting berth in Wales's Six Nations opener • Lions' captain has recovered from shoulder injury • Dan Lydiate may miss Italy match to attend birth Sam Warburton was named on Wales's bench against Italy on Saturday after recovering from the shoulder injury he sustained at the end of the autumn Test series, but the Lions' captain may start the champions' opening match of their Six Nations title defence after Dan Lydiate returned to France on Tuesday when his fiancee went into labour. Warren Gatland said he would have no qualms about starting the flanker, despite his lack of match fitness, but the second-row Alun Wyn Jones, who was named captain in place of Warburton, will wear the armband if Lydiate fails to return to the squad's training base by Friday. "I have told Dan to take a few days off and we will be able to accommodate him even if he returns on Friday," Gatland said. "We always stress to players the importance of family and I asked Dan if he wanted the weekend off, ...
Can't sleep. Had this awful nightmare that we had Alain Rolland as referee this Saturday, that Warren Gatland decided to *** him off before the match has even started by not meeting him, and that Alex Cuthbert's off injured. Thank Buddha it was just a dream.
Wales name team to face Boks 2013-11-05 Cardiff - Ospreys wing Eli Walker is set to make his Wales debut against the Springboks after being named in coach Warren Gatland's starting side to face the Springboks at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday. The 21-year-old has been given his chance after injury ruled out wing Alex Cuthbert from the first of Wales's four November internationals. Meanwhile Rhys Priestland returns at fly-half after missing all of Wales's Six Nations title-winning campaign last season with an Achilles injury. British and Irish Lions skipper Sam Warburton again captains the side from the back-row where Dan Lydiate, one of the stars of the combined side's 2-1 series win in Australia this year, makes his first Wales appearance since 2012 following an ankle injury. Walker has long been regarded as one of the best finishers in the Celtic League but a back injury ruled him out of both the Six Nations and Wales's two-Test pre-season tour of Japan. "Eli has impressed for his region and while w ...
Wales Squad for Autumn Internationals October 22, 2013 Wales boss Warren Gatland has named three uncapped players in a 35-man squad for next month’s Tests against South Africa, Argentina, Tonga and Australia. Ospreys wing Eli Walker, Cardiff Blues centre Cory Allen and Scarlets scrum-half Rhodri Williams have all been selected. But there are no places for injured British and Irish Lions backs Jamie Roberts and Alex Cuthbert or Blues captain Matthew Rees. Racing Metro centre Roberts is recovering from an ankle injury, while Blues wing Cuthbert suffered an ankle problem during last weekend’s Heineken Cup victory over European champions Toulon. The Blues have today announced Rees will be out of the game for an enforced period after undergoing testicular surgery. Perpignan back James Hook, who last started for Wales against another Test-playing country two years ago, has made the squad, which is based largely on last season’s RBS 6 Nations title-winning group. There is also a place for scrum-half Mike P ...
Wales’ tough autumn series has been overshadowed by former captain Matthew Rees needing surgery for suspected testicular cancer. Rees, who was a late withdrawal before Cardiff Blues toppled Jonny Wilkinson’s Toulon on Saturday, had been set to figure in November. But his announcement on Tuesday came before head coach Warren Gatland named a 35-man squad that does not include Alex Cuthbert. He has joined fellow Lions back Jamie Roberts on the sidelines.
Lions Squad Analysis for 2nd Test Posted on Jun 27, 2013 The old adage goes that ‘you should never change a winning team’ but clearly this message has been lost on Warren Gatland, who has made five changes to his test XV ahead of the second test on Saturday. In the forwards, Mako Vunipola and Geoff Parling have replaced Alex Corbisiero and Paul O’Connell, both of whom are injured, and Tom Croft, who drops to the bench, has been replaced by Dan Lydiate. In the backs, Ben Youngs and the fit-again Tommy Bowe are preferred to Mike Phillips and Alex Cuthbert, with the winger dropping to the bench at the expense of Sean Maitland. Vunipola was unlucky to miss out on a starting role in the first test after his imperious form in the warm-up games, but ultimately the decision to opt for Corbisiero, a more proficient scrummager, proved to be the right call. The question now is whether or not Gatland should have selected Ryan Grant, who takes his place on the bench, ahead of Vunipola, with the latter resuming h ...
Lions: L Halfpenny; A Cuthbert, B O'Driscoll, J Davies, G North; J Sexton, M Phillips; A Corbisiero, T Youngs, A Jones; AW Jones, P O'Connell; T Croft, S Warburton (c), J Heaslip. Reps: R Hibbard, M Vunipola, D Cole, G Parling, D Lydiate, B Youngs, O Farrell, S Maitland. Eight Welsh players will be in the Lions first Test starting line-up to face Australia on Saturday, after Warren Gatland revealed his picks earlier today. Sam Waburton will captain the side in the No.7 jersey and he is joined by full-back Leigh Halfpenny, wings Alex Cuthbert and George North, centre Jonathan Davies, scrum-half Mike Phillips, second row Alun Wyn Jones and prop Adam Jones. The only surprise was the inclusion of Englishman Alex Corbisiero at loosehead, Mako Vunipola having been expected to get the nod butu having to make do with a place on the bench. That's the situation too for hooker Richard Hibbard, who has lost out to in-form Tom Youngs for the No.2 jersey. Hibbard and blindside Dan Lydiate are the Welshmen among the rep ...
British and Irish Lions name team to play Combined Country XV Posted on Jun 9, 2013 Warren Gatland has named his team to play a Combined Country XV on Tuesday in Newcastle. Alex Corbisiero is set to make his first start, while fellow injury replacement Ryan Grant is named on the bench. Stuart Hogg gets an outing at fly-half with Sean Maitland slotting in at fullback, while the side is captained by Brian O’Driscoll in the midfield. He links up with 2009 centre partner Jamie Roberts. “The Reds game was always going to be a big challenge, and I was delighted at the victory and the way we were tested,” said Warren Gatland. “It was a very physical match, as we knew it would be. We now move on to Newcastle and another challenge. “This team to play Country includes three players – Richie Gray, Alex Cuthbert and Stuart Hogg – who are starting their second game in a row, plus another, George North, who came off the bench early against the Reds. “This is the nature of Lions tours as we adapt to inju ...
A Welsh-heavy Great British and Irish Lions side opened their Tour with a straightforward 59-8 victory over the Barbarians in Hong Kong. The Lions ran in eight tries – with seven of them coming from Welshmen. Captain Paul O'Connell was the only non-Welshman to get over as he scored the opening try of the Tour while scrum-half Mike Phillips and winger Alex Cuthbert helped themselves to two tries each. Jonathan Davies, Dan Lydiate and replacement Alun Wyn-Jones also went over on a day when Warren Gatland decided to start with nine Welsh players and 11 Lions debutants. England's Owen Farrell had an up and down performance at fly-half before being replaced by Ireland's Jonny Sexton who himself missed three, admittedly tough, conversion attempts. Kahn Fotuali'I off a lovely set-up from former All Black Joe Rokocoko scored the only try for an enthusiastic, but ultimately outmatched Barbarians side who should have had Schalk Brits sent-off for a clear punch on Farrell after just eight minutes only for referee ...
Warren Gatland has selected 11 Welshmen in his squad to face the BarbariansWales will dominate the opening match of the 2013 British & Irish Lions with nine players selected to start against the Barbarians in Hong Kong. Centre pair Jamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies continue their winning Test partnership in midfield alongside Six Nations try hero Alex Cuthbert. Three Ospreys forwards will start at Hong Kong Stadium including front-row pair Adam Jones and Richard Hibbard as well as flanker Justin Tipuric who gets the nod after tour captain Sam Warburton was ruled out with a knee injury. Tipuric lines up between Newport Gwent Dragons pair Dan Lydiate and Toby Faletau in an all-Wales back-row in front of scrum-half Mike Phillips. The veteran Test number nine will provide crucial experience for half-back partner Owen Farrell who is joined by Saracens team-mate Mako Vunipola. Scotland's trio of tourists, Stuart Hogg, Sean Maitland and Richie Gray all start while 2009 captain Paul O'Connell will lead the team i ...
