The Welsh team performance was not great last night against Samoa, but the Welsh Captain, Ryan Jones, certainly put in a man of the match performance that was really pleasing.
In September I wrote that Wales needed him and suggested that he should stick to playing No 8. Since then – was he listening I wonder – he has lead the Ospreys well and only as a No8 and has delivered at least 3 Man of the Match performances for them. Last night he did it for Wales.
It is such a shame for seemingly so nice a guy that he was not allowed to shine on the global stage as a Lion this summer.
