Wales international winger Josh Adams has admitted the Premiership’s decision to not release him for their game with South Africa in the USA will weigh heavily when he’s forced to make a decision on his future next year.
The Washington encounter fell outside World Rugby’s designated Test window which meant PRL were within their rights to refuse to release Adams, as well as Tomas Francis and Luke Charteris.
Adams is out of contract with Worcester Warriors at the end of next season and will have to move to Wales if he is to continue playing for the national side. But it appears recent events have ruled out any chance of him staying in the Premiership.
“It’s been up and down and then with the politics of things going on above me, I was withdrawn from the tour initially. I was gutted and it hit me for six,” Adams told the Independent.
“To be told I wasn’t able to go to America was a massive kick in the teeth for me. All that stuff is all above me. Unfortunately I’ve just got to listen to it, but now I’m buzzing to get back out there and I’ve been given the opportunity to start on Saturday. I can’t wait.”
The talented young winger was the Premiership’s join top try-scorer this season. No doubt he’ll have plenty of suitors when his contract is up.
