Wales are ‘more dangerous than ever’
Gareth Llewellyn believes that the current Wales Six Nations team are the best he has seen.
After securing a valuable win at Ireland on the opening weekend, Wales host Scotland on Sunday afternoon.
They can go into this contest with confidence too with Llewellyn stating that the squad is ‘more dangerous’ than ever before.
Speaking about Warren Gatland’s men, he said: “We’re not just dependent on one or two players to do something special for us.”
“We’ve got them right across the park now, so I think we’re looking as dangerous as we ever have.”
“We’ve got a very intimidating set of backs at the moment, as big as any backline in world rugby, I would suggest.”
“And the more time they have together the better they’ll get.”
“So to have someone like Hooky [James Hooky] on the bench is a bit of a bonus really.”
“He can’t force his way into the team, but I’ve never seen in recent times as many match-winners across the park – guys like George North, [Alex] Cuthbert, Jamie Roberts, Warburton, [Toby] Faletau in the back row, Gethin Jenkins coming back in.”
“I share the optimism from a Welsh point of view because I thought we played very well against Ireland, as well as I’ve seen us play for some time. So we have to be confident going into it.”
“However, I don’t think it’s going to be a walk in the park. I think Scotland are a very capable side and sooner or later they will start finishing off their chances when they keep creating them.”
“So I’m optimistic because of our performance, not the Scots’ lack of, really.”
It certainly is a positive time for Welsh rugby. After a positive World Cup campaign, they will hope to defeat Scotland this weekend, maintaining their Grand Slam push in the process.
