The Wales form be run­ning out

South Wales Echo - - SPORT -

THEY’RE the form horses of Wales and col­lec­tively make a team you def­i­nitely won’t see kick­ing off the Six Na­tions Cham­pi­onship cam­paign against Italy in a lit­tle over three weeks time.

Be­cause we all know while form counts and fans and pun­dits alike de­mand the play­ers in the prime of their rugby life get picked for Wales, it doesn’t al­ways work out that way.

So, don’t ex­pect to see this cur­rent dream team lin­ing up at the Sta­dio Olimpico on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 5, with some not even pen­cilled in to make Robert How­ley’s 30-plus squad due to be an­nounced next week.

Rugby writer AN­THONY WOOLFORD gives you the Welsh XV based on cur­rent form, who should be step­ping out in Rome next month.
