JOHNNY McNICHOL

Reading through the Wales Squad I was confused over Kiwi Johnny McNichol who plays for Llanelli Scarlets.

The Squad lineup I posted says he is as yet uncapped for Wales. Yet I seem to remember him playing a game for Wales in the Autumn.

C&P'd from Wikipedia ....

"In November 2019 McNicholl was named in the Wales squad for the first time after qualifying for Wales through the residency rule.
At the age of 29 he made his debut for Wales in the starting line up for the uncapped international against the Barbarians on 30 November 2019.
He scored a debut try in the 44-33 Wales win.
On 15 January 2020 he was also called up for Wales' 2020 Six Nations Championship squad."


Perhaps playing for Wales in a "friendly" (v Barbarians) is not counted as a Cap!
:-S :-S :-S

Whoop, whoop cannot wait :-D

I still had my fix with the cup games, yes I watch Union and League.

I am irritated that BT have snaffled some of the recent live matches on a pay per view basis. I cough up enough for Sky Sports :-( and radio coverage is, in my opinion, a waste of 80 minutes plus half time :-P

Keep up the good work Jem <3
