MY PLAYERS OF THE MONTH
JUSTIN TIPURIC AND ELLIS JENKINS They picked up three of the four man of the match awards between them and showed how to deal without Sam Warburton. We all know what they can do at the breakdown, but their link play in the wider channels and defensive qualities were superb. When Taulupe Faletau and James Davies come back into the mix in the New Year, the battle for back row places will go through the roof. GARETH ANSCOMBE, left Came out on top in the race for No.10. He was given his chance and he made the most of it. Now in pole position going into the Six Nations, but needs to brush up on some of his kicking. What he has shown is that he can add something to the Welsh attacking game, which is vital for Japan. LIAM WILLIAMS Simply too good to be left out of any Welsh starting XV. If he is good enough to play full-back for the British & Irish Lions, then he’s good enough to start there for Wales... or on either wing. He scored three tries, was a constant threat and gives confidence to the players around him. ALUN WYN JONES Captain Fantastic! Sets ridiculously high standards, but seems to be dragging everyone along with him. He has been immense this month and is a player who is feared and respected in equal measure. Has there ever been a better Welsh forward in the history of the game?
