Welsh players backed by WRU

The Welsh Rugby Union have defended those players seen socialising into the early hours following their dismal 21-9 Six Nations defeat by Scotland in the second round of fixtures.

Gareth Jenkins’ side have come under fire from fans unhappy with the team’s decision to spend the evening drinking at a famous Edinburgh nightspot.

However, the WRU revealed the players had been given permission to go out.

An official WRU statement read: “The Welsh team management permitted the team to take a break from camp shortly after 9pm on Saturday night.

“Every one of the players reported back to the team hotel. The preparation of the Welsh squads is intensely planned and managed throughout the Six Nations.

“Preparation includes identifying zones to counterbalance the intensity of playing and training at the high standard required to compete properly at international level.”

Wales, who have lost both of their games to date will be hoping they can shake off the hang-over and bounce back with victory against France.
