I too, in the past have been a bit of a detractor of Will Welch both as a captain and a starting flanker in our side, but over the past two, maybe three years he has really grown into the roll both as an openside and a captain, putting in some very impressive and consistent performances.

He is somewhat overshadowed by Mark Wilson, but in my opinion, should be getting as much, or even more recognition both internationally and in the game in general.

May it be another case of Northern bias? If he were say, a Leicester, Saracens, Exeter, or Wasps player, would he have gotten 20 caps by now?
