Robert Page insists relegation from the top tier of the Nations League on Sunday is softened by the prospect of looking forward to Wales’ first World Cup since 1958 in two months’ time. A 1-0 defeat to Poland in Cardiff on Sunday night condemned Page’s men to finishing bottom of a group also containing Belgium and the Netherlands. Wales’ four Nations League games in June were split either side of a vital World Cup qualifying play-off against Ukraine, which forced Page to rest a number of key players for their 2-1 defeat in Poland to start the group.

They will play in the same group as England, Iran and the United States, with bookmakers having them around 150-1 outsiders to win the trophy.

With Cardiff having conceded eight tries in a 52-24 thrashing in Glasgow, the Scarlets also shipped over a half century of points at home to Ulster, and leaked seven tries, in going down 55-39.
