NEW Wales coach Wayne Pivac described hat-trick hero and former Worcester Warriors favourite Josh Adams as one of the best wingers in world rugby.

The nation launched the defence of their Guinness Six Nations title with a crushing 42-0 victory over Italy.

Cardiff Blues wing Adams became the first Wales player to claim a Five/Six Nations hat-trick at home since Maurice Richards scored four against England in 1969.

Adams was the top try-scorer at the 2019 World Cup in Japan with seven and has now scored 10 in his last eight international appearances.

“He was a top try-scorer on the biggest stage so he’s got to be right up there, that has to speak for itself really,” Pivac said when asked where he rated Adams in world terms.

“With Stephen (Jones) running the attack and the way we want to play the game I think wingers will get more opportunities.

“I don’t think he’ll be too fazed by the way we want to play the game. I think he’ll enjoy it.

“I liked his last try. He could have easily just parked up out on his wing but after more than 80 minutes he’s in close to the ruck looking for the ball and using his strengths to get over the try line.”


I absolutely agree, he is a great finisher!
