It has already been dubbed “Mission Impossible” but Wales captain Dafydd Jenkins insists he would not bother getting on the plane if he thought he could not be a winner in Ireland this weekend.

Joe Allen’s future at Swansea City looks uncertain after head coach Luke Williams admitted he didn’t know if the former Wales star would be offered a new contract.

Nick Tompkins insists Wales are not afraid of double Grand Slam-seeking Ireland. In fact, the Saracens centre is convinced Wales can go to the Aviva Stadium and “take a scalp” to get their Six Nations campaign back on track.

Warren Gatland fears Welsh rugby is going to duck the essential changes he insists are needed to close the gulf between Wales and Ireland. The Wales coach says he is “not 100 per cent convinced” that regional rugby will undergo the proper reset he feels it requires. Gatland admitted “it has probably felt sometimes like you are in a sinking ship and you are trying to plug the holes a little bit”.
