Relishing the prospects of participating in the Six Nations this season, Wales Scrum-half, Gareth Davies has called on his team mates to find top gear as they enter into the competition.
Davies feels that the beginning of the campaign should see his Wales Rugby team find the top gear into the competition, especially as they would be meeting with some of the heavyweights such as England, who are currently in high spirits and amazing form, and Ireland who recently won their game against Australia.
For Wales, their autumn international series came to an end with a win over South Africa which saw them beat their counterparts 27-13. On the other hand, Ireland came off with a back to back win against both New Zealand and Australia. England, the in-form heavyweights led by Eddie Jones, remain unbeaten up to this point.
Wales’ Six Nation campaign will begin with a game against Italy at Cardiff on February 5, while six days later, they would play host to Eddie Jones men.
Davies was quoted saying,
“We’ve already spoken about the Six Nations,”
“We are looking forward to it.
“The next game at the Principality Stadium is England. We were fairly comfortable (against South Africa), but I think we have got another couple of gears in us, and for us to beat England we are going to have to go through those gears.
“They are on great form. And if we can get up to that top gear, I think it will be a hell of a game.”
Davies was also happy with their last win in the game against South Africa, despite the pressure that had been on the team since the last couple of weeks. He believes his team would need to review the autumn series, and work on a few points before they begin their Six Nations campaign
