Training in Wales could be on the cards for a number of players looking for a chance at the elite level.
The first group of British players to train in the country will train in Cardiff on Wednesday and Friday, and there are plans for a further 12 players to get their feet wet on Wednesday.
There are also a number more on the way, with six of the 10 players who will train with Wales in the coming weeks expected to be part of the squad for the upcoming Six Nations.
One of the key points of the first group will be the preparation for the second, and that’s the importance of taking time to acclimatise before training in the warm weather conditions.
“We are all looking forward to the challenge of playing in the summer, especially for a group of players who have just returned from international rugby,” said Jack Nowell.
While Wales have played at the first two World Cups, and in the second half of last year’s tournament, the squad is still not fully fully in shape.
It’s been more than six weeks since the Wales squad had a training session, and they have been forced to take on board some of the concerns they have had about the preparation.
Nowell has been training in Cardiff since February, and he has not been able to play for Wales since October.
However, the player himself feels he has developed a good understanding of the Welsh rugby system, and is hoping to get some of his experience at the senior level.
“It’s great that Wales are in the process of getting back to the top and looking to build something new.
We are very fortunate to have some experience from the last World Cup, and now we have to start building the squad.”
There are still a lot of questions, but I think it’s a good start,” said Nowell, who is part of an exciting line-up of players including the Wales captain Dylan Hartley, the Liam Williams, Tom Woods and Luke Charteris, who were in the squad last week against England.
And the squad could be even more exciting when they return to Wales after the tournament.
Wales are currently sitting in sixth position in the Six Nations standings, with England currently at second, Wales currently in fourth, and Wales playing Argentina in their opening game on Saturday.
