Wales are on a roll, but the momentum will come to a halt on Saturday night, argues Robin Davey. England, for all their injury issues, will have too much firepower as evidenced by their two bonus points so far in this tournament compared to Wales’ none. It’ll be be all... Read More
Leigh Halfpenny is back – on the training field, at least. Come the weekend and he might also have played his first match for three months for the Scarlets. So, should he come straight back for Wales against England? Robin Davey weighs up the call – and would leave out... Read More
Wales head to Italy this weekend, but Robin Davey already has one eye on round three of the Six Nations and that looming clash with England. Having tipped Ireland to win the tournament, he’s now ready with the whitewash. Just a week ago the Six Nations was all set to... Read More
The Six Nations is about to begin. All eyes will be focussed on Paris where Wales start the ball rolling against France. For Robin Davey, though, his eyes are green and envious of the Ireland team he predicts will win it all over again. Irish rugby is on the crest... Read More
