WELSH TEAM INTRODUCTION
Semi-finalists on three occasions (1987, 2011, 2019), Wales are forever in contention when it comes to Rugby World Cup.
Meeting Australia and Fiji in the pool phase for the third consecutive edition at RWC 2023, the Welsh will be attempting to qualify for the knockout rounds forthe fourth tournament in a row. If they are to be led by their iconic captain Alun Wyn Jones, the most capped player of all time, he will be playing in his record-equalling fifth Rugby World Cup, 16 years after RWC 2007.
Wales will be boasting an enviable backline, in which the powerful George North, the dependable Liam Williams, the serial finisher Josh Adams, top scorer at Rugby World Cup 2019 with seven tries, and the young star Louis Rees-Zammit all shine.
In France in 2023, Wales will be hoping to do what their legendary players of the past (Neil Jenkins, Jonathan Davies, Shane Williams…) could not and win a maiden Rugby World Cup.
