Harsh Truths Uttered In Wales Huddle After Defeat To Italy

Harsh Truths Uttered In Wales Huddle After Defeat To Italy

Dan Biggar said some players will never pull on the Wales jersey again following Saturday's defeat to Italy in the Six Nations

Italy won the game 22-21 thanks to a dramatic late break by Ange Capuozzo which allowed Edoardo Padovani to touch down for a try. Paolo Garbisi kicked the conversion to seal Italy's first Six Nations victory since 2015.

"What do you say?" Dan Biggar told BBC after the game.

"This is probably the toughest interview I’ve ever had to do. It's simply not good enough. It was so poor to lose it from where we were. We haven’t played well all day, but to not finish it off when they are 70 metres from their own line...

"We have just said in the huddle now, it’s probably the last chance for a lot of players, that."

The result means Wales finished fifth in the Six Nations. Their only win was against Scotland.

"We were a little bit unlucky on the try," the Wales captain continued


"Wyn thinks he's scored it when it's gone to the TMO. That gets given, the game is different, but it wasn't. It's one of those where we were chasing as high as we could get.

"From the get go, we weren’t quite at it and you get punished. I can’t give you a reason why. I don’t know what the answer is.

"Too many boys not quite up to speed. We were second in any loose balls and in any balls in the air. It’s just really disappointing that something we pride ourselves on that requires no talent, but work ethic, we were well short today and that’s got to be looked at very very closely."
