FROM FAN TO FRY­ING PAN

Irish Daily Mirror - - RUGBY LGE -

WALES v AUS­TRALIA 5.20PM JOSH ADAMS watched Wales’ last de­feat to the Aussies from the Prin­ci­pal­ity Sta­dium stands.

Now the winger has swapped a pint for a pair of boots to take on Wal­la­bies star Is­rael Fo­lau. Worces­ter ace Adams, 23, makes only his fifth Test ap­pear­ance to com­plete a whirl­wind 12 months.

“I was at the sta­dium last year sup­port­ing St­ef­fan Evans who is a good school friend of mine,” Adams said. “I thought then to my­self, ‘I’m miles away from all this’.

“Five months later I was play­ing in the Six Na­tions and now I’m play­ing against Aus­tralia. Fo­lau is top qual­ity, I know his threats. He’s proven at in­ter­na­tional level how good he is time and again.”
