Rugby World Cup

Rugby World Cup, RHYS Priestland focused on soft insists Wales finally join the World Cup boy’s bully. The typical flight Scarlets half of the recent transformation in Warren Gatland’s side is weak enforcement novice street muscle.
Little more than a year ago was seen as Priestland unable to bear the burden so often takes his club and Stephen Jones. But Priestland, 24, muscular and perfected his streak of say – a maturity reflected over his face that he believes the force bullies to back South Africa in Wellington today.
“It will be a difficult task against the Springboks, because everyone knows the reputation that comes with,” says Priestland, who will win the fifth hat after being chosen to fly half ahead of James Hook, which begins in full-back.
“They’re a great team, very physical and confrontational. But the work we’ve done, especially in our training trips to Poland, it will be very useful.
“I think against England in the two-up games and then against Argentina, which were the stronger team – especially late in games.
“Therefore, I think we have much confidence going into this game we’re in great shape and physically able to work together.”
Priestland has spent most of his six years of life than rugby in the shadow of man Jones 100 cap.
While Jones was always the strong man out in the Scarlets Priestland was seen as highly qualified, but suspect under pressure and is subject to Fray emotionally if they’re kicking game deserted him.
But last year, the Economics graduate has entered a period of steady growth – both physically and mentally – and even if Jones were in a position, the apprentice could still have been preferred to the teacher for the shock of Wales Cup World openness.
That puts much of this improvement to the faith shown in him by Scarlets coach Nigel Davies.
“Playing for the Scarlets have become increasingly comfortable with the way I wanted to play and I was getting more confidence,” he said.
“The coaches there have been very patient with me, especially Nigel Davies.
“When things were not going so well for a while, I said it will keep for me and I am grateful.
“I am a better player than he was safe and more sure of myself and what I can do.”
Wales have only beaten the Springboks once in their history – a 29-19 victory in 1999, although you should take encouragement from two narrow defeats last year.
The 34-31 loss in June 2010 and then 29-25 last November when George was his first in North Wales, with two excellent tries.
Priestland not appear in either game, but broke into the team in the Six Nations last season. Now, the player who left college with the intention of becoming a banker in the city will bid to the bankruptcy of the defense of South African trophy.
He said: “It is important to a good start and is positive that they are playing the champions.”
