What they said

Head Coach Bryan Easson said:

“We’ve kept our feet firmly on the ground coming into this Six Nations because we know we are coming up against some of the best teams in the world. Coming into it with some good performances and wins does set that belief and sets us in good stead for what’s ahead.

“We’ve done our homework, we understand Wales quite well. We’ve had some really good fixtures against them in the past but we’ve concentrated really hard on ourselves. We’ve highlighted WXV, we’ve highlighted previous Six Nations, especially the last two Six Nations games coming into WXV we were pretty happy with our performance. The goal for us now is to keep improving those performances”.
