With the domestic rugby tests upon the horizon and some mouth watering matches scheduled to be played out, the question that is on the mind of everyone is whether there is any necessity for a universal playing schedule. The Wales Rugby Team are slated for a tour of Down Under with three test matches against The Wallabies on their itinerary after they have finished their task in Scotland and with the Six Nations champions coming down to Australia is sure to be a hot news for weeks, will they be as strong a side that beat the odds to win the title?
There is no doubt that the Welsh squad will be extremely fit and ready to g moreover, most of the players in the squad have finished their domestic seasons as well with the Harlequins winning the Aviva Premiership, Leinster coming out on top in the European Cup and the Ospreys having secured the Pro 12, the Welsh players will be battle hardened after a long and grueling season. But the question is whether the players of the Wales Rugby Team who play for these teams and some of the other players whose domestic teams have gone the distance in their respective competitions, will have enough gas left in the tank to fight off the charge of The Wallabies.
Although the players of the Australian Rugby Team are no less battered and bruised than their Welsh counterparts, they have not had to endure the 35 week long rigorous season that most of the Welsh players have and the results could all come down to who has enough gas left in the tank.
Rugby is an extremely physical game and with the players of the Wales Rugby Team already having endured a tough year, calls for a universal schedule is getting louder from the neutrals.
