Today’s rugby news focuses on Owen Farrell’s Six Nations ban and Gatland’s praise for Wales’ “very explosive” hooker.

Warren Gatland, the Wales coach, has been informed that “very explosive” Bradley Roberts would be right up his alley after watching the Dragons hooker at Rodney Parade on Friday night. The Dragons’ hooker is Roberts.

Gatland left New Zealand this week to come back to the country. He went to the Dragons’ loss to the Bulls, along with forwards coach Jonathan Humphreys.

While Gatland was thinking about the final spots for his Six Nations team, he would have watched Rio Dyer and Roberts play well.

Roberts, according to Mark Jones, who was covering Wales for BBC Wales, would be Gatland’s kind of player.

“He likes to avoid them a lot when he’s on defense, but when he wins the ball, he obviously likes to have a high percentage rate.”

England captain Owen Farrell is worried about missing the Six Nations Owen Farrell will have to wait anxiously to find out if he will be fined for a shoulder-led.

The Saracens fly-half hit Gloucester replacement Jack Clement near the end of an intense game at Kingsholm before scoring the game’s final drop goal to send Gloucester home.

Play continued because he was not dealt a penalty on the field. However, citing commissioner James Hall may have a different opinion following Farrell’s right shoulder striking Clement’s chin and the subsequent penalty.

He was banned for five games in 2020 for making a high tackle on Wasps player Charlie Atkinson.

Steve Borthwick, England manager, was among the 13,400 attendees, and the new head coach will also closely follow any developments.

Mark McCall, Saracens’ director of rugby, was asked about the incident: Because I was at the pitchside for the last three or four minutes, I haven’t seen it yet. According to what I’ve heard, I’ll have to investigate the possibility of a high tackle.

Gloucester’s head coach, George Skivington, stated: It is extremely difficult to comment on it. I cannot join the judiciary, so I have to keep shtum. Simply put, games will be more consistent.

Farrell’s goalkicking was terrible that night; he missed four of six attempts, three of which were close to Gloucester’s 22-meter line. However, he delivered when it mattered most, and Saracens increased their lead at the top of the Premiership by 14 points.

After returning to training with the Ospreys, Harri Morgan, the former age-grade star of Wales who was once considered for big things, will hope that his injuries are over. The young Welsh scrum-half intends to move on from his injury nightmare.

The scrum-half had been identified as having the potential to make a significant impact in Welsh rugby after a glittering adolescent career that included outstanding performances in victories over England and South Africa at the U18 level.

Due to a series of injuries that have hindered his progression to the senior level, he has only played one game for the Ospreys in the second half of the season.

Toby Booth, the region’s head coach, believes Morgan may have taken on too much at once after playing rugby as a child. He stated as much: Harri has practiced this week. It’s wonderful that he’s regaining his confidence.

I think his body is catching up. We play the sport we do, and young people who haven’t developed yet might be exposed from time to time.

The difficult part is that if you’re good enough and people want to choose you, you won’t say no. The challenge is to try to develop the body toughness and resilience necessary to withstand professional rugby’s demands.

The enraged ace of the Lions is prepared to confront the Ospreys Lions No. 8 Jack Conan wants to make a statement against the Ospreys on Saturday because he is dissatisfied with his lack of first-team opportunities with Leinster.

Conan, an international player from Ireland, defeated Taulupe Faletau to begin the tour of South Africa for the 2021 Lions. However, it has been difficult to get started with Leinster due to the competition in his back row this season. He has altered his strategy in recent weeks because this will be only his fifth start of the season against the Ospreys in Swansea tonight.

The training sessions are progressing more quickly and necessitating more expertise. At the moment, the environment is truly so competitive.
