Alex Morgan named in Wales U20 Six Nations squad
Gloucester Rugby Academy winger Alex Morgan has been named by Wales U20 Head Coach Gareth Williams in the 2019 Six Nations squad.

Morgan has been a regular for the Gloucester United side in the Premiership Rugby Shield this season, scoring a try against Bristol at Kingsholm in December. He also made his first team debut this season in the Premiership Rugby Cup.

He has been named in a 32-man squad for the Six Nations championship which includes 13 players who have already gained experience at U20 level.

"This is the first selection point gearing towards the World Cup when looking at the bigger picture," explained Williams who is in his first campaign as Head Coach.

"I've been really impressed with the boys’ attitude and not just the players who have been successful in making the squad.

"We've also got an injured group of players and a training group as well as the Six Nations squad and all have been exemplary. We've had three camps with 60 players and the competitive nature of all ensures no-one can rest on their laurels as competition for places across the board has been intense.”

Wales begin the championship against the junior world champions, France, at Stade de la Rabine in Vannes on Sunday 3rd February before facing Italy a week later.

Their first home game at Stadiwm Zip World in Colwyn Bay is in the third round of action on Friday 22nd February, when they host England. Wales play Scotland in the fourth round before completing their campaign against Ireland on Friday 15th March.
