It’s been over a year since the last Six Nations tournament in 2021 and now it’s time to get ready for the big one in 2023. With Wales being one of the favorites to take home the title, we’ve compiled a list of four players who are sure to make an impact during the tournament. From experienced veterans to rising stars, these four players have all displayed their skills at the highest level and will be key figures in Wales’ quest for glory. We’ll explore each player’s qualities, what they bring to the team and why they should be watched out for during the tournament.
Josh Adams is one of Wales’ most exciting young talents and is sure to make an impact in the Six Nations. The winger made his Wales debut against Australia in November 2017 and has gone on to score seven tries in 11 appearances for his country.
Adams is known for his pace and power, which makes him a dangerous runner with the ball in hand. He also has a good work ethic and is always looking for ways to improve his game.
Adams will be looking to make a big impact in the Six Nations and help Wales build on their strong showing at last year’s World Cup.
Louis Rees-Zammit, 19, is one of Wales’ most exciting young prospects and is being tipped to make a big impact in the 2020 Six Nations. The Gloucester winger made his Wales debut against Barbarians in November 2019 and has since gone on to score four tries in five Test matches.
Rees-Zammit possesses electric pace and is a real threat with the ball in hand. He also has an excellent finishing record, as evidenced by his try-scoring exploits for both club and country. With Wales’ first choice winger Josh Adams set to miss the start of the Six Nations due to injury, Rees-Zammit is likely to get plenty of opportunities to shine on the international stage.
Wales have a number of players who could make an impact in the upcoming Six Nations tournament. Among them is Wyn Jones, who has impressed for Wales in recent years.
A versatile player, Jones can operate at both loosehead and tighthead prop. He made his Wales debut in 2018 and has since gone on to become a key member of the squad.
Jones is known for his scrummaging ability and will be crucial to Wales’ chances of success in the Six Nations. He will also provide valuable experience to a relatively young Wales side.
Alun Wyn Jones
Alun Wyn Jones is one of the most experienced players in the Wales squad and will be key to their chances of success in the Six Nations. Jones has been a regular starter for Wales since making his debut in 2006 and has gone on to make over 100 appearances for his country.
The 34-year-old is a powerful second row who is known for his physicality and work rate. He is also a key leader in the Wales dressing room and will be looked to by coach Wayne Pivac to provide guidance and experience to a young squad.
Jones will be crucial to Wales’ hopes of winning the Six Nations and they will need him at his best if they are to challenge for the title.
How to watch the Six Nations
As the Six Nations nears, excitement is building for rugby fans across Wales. Here are some players to keep an eye on during the tournament:
1. Josh Adams – A dangerous winger with a nose for the try-line, Adams was Wales’ top scorer in the 2018/19 tournament with 5 tries. He’ll be looking to add to his tally this year and help his team to victory.
2. Jonathan Davies – One of Wales’ most experienced players, centre Jonathan Davies is a key member of the side. His ability to create space for others and make telling breaks will be crucial in attack, while his solid tackling will be important in defence.
3. Leigh Halfpenny – The full-back is another key player for Wales, with his accurate kicking often proving decisive in close games. Halfpenny will also be looking to add to his try-scoring tally this year, and his runs from deep could be a real weapon for Wales.
