    So let’s just get this straight… Wales have the lowest world ranking of the 4 nations, were 5th in the 6N, the only team outside Italy to lose at home, scored the least tries in the 6N outside Italy, were the only team not to score a bonus point against Italy, had no teams in the Champions Cup quarter finals, yet the only Welsh players left out are Biggar, Scott Williams, Rob Evans and Jake Ball.
