The countdown begins

The Wales Six Nations squad met up at their training HQ in the Vale today. The only weakness in Warren Gatland’s selection looks to be at scrum half. The extent of Dwayne Peel’s injury is uncertain: according to the Wales camp, the British Lion is unfit and therefore not up for consideration. According to Peel’s club, he will be fit in time for the Six Nations opener against England at Twickenham.

Either way, surely it’s a gamble worth taking? If Wales lose this crucial first match, they might as well not bother with the rest of the tournament. A good start against England is vital and that surely means Peel must be considered.
