RUGBY. Springbok legend Eben Etzebeth ‘stronger’ than the entire Welsh pack?

The results should normally have been even more glaring. Which ? Let’s recontextualize: Saturday at Twickenham (yes, you read correctly), Wales faces South Africa for what will be the first match since their last title as double world champions.

A hell of a test to start a summer tour for this Welsh team in reconstruction, looking for talent and a wooden spoon during the last 6 Nations tournament.

RUGBY. Louis Rees-Zammit admits: NFL training is ‘easier’ than Wales training!

Aged for several yearsthe principality’s team has in fact lost most of its old hands who ran the house (AW Jones, Biggar, North, Tipuric…) during the last year, as well as its nugget Louis Rees-Zammit, who is launched in American football.

As such, before leaving for Australia for two tests, she will appear on Saturday against a team much more experienced than her, even if the Boks have left room for some young players for this match (Roos, Hendrikse, Fassi… ).

6 NATIONS. Tommy Reffell, the shadow soldier who could well ruin the lives of the Blues in CardiffDespite everything, alone, the 32-year-old colossus Eben Etbezeth had to post more selections than the entire Welsh pack (119 against 118). Finally, the stat fell through following the last minute withdrawal of Castres pillar Henry Thomas (4 caps with the Welsh), replaced the much more experienced Assiratti (6 caps).

But the results are the same for this Welsh team, deprived of its rare world-class players like Jac Morgan, Tommy Reffell or Will Rowlands and which should be largely in deficit in many aspects, against the Boks. Even if the upcoming tour will be an opportunity to see new faces again and again.
