Warren Gatland has named a 37-man strong squad for the upcoming Six Nations.
The experienced squad includes 31 players who featured for Wales in the 2015 Rugby World Cup and will be led by Sam Warburton.
We have selected a squad that rewards players form as well as picking a lot of experience and that continuity is important to us,” said Gatland.
We have picked a larger squad than normal, we have a few injuries at the moment, those players aren’t too far away from getting back on the field so we are happy with the mix.
Aled (Davies) is someone who has been on the radar the last couple of years and his selection is reward for his form.
Tom (James) is playing very well for the Blues and we have been impressed with Josh’s (Turnbull) performances recently.
It is always exciting when the Six Nations comes around and we are looking forward to meeting up next Monday.
