Alex Cuthbert: Osprey wings added to Wales for the fall series

Alex Cuthbert chats with Wayne Pivak on Monday training in Wales

Alex Cuthbert has been added to the Wales national team for the fall series game with New Zealand, South Africa, Fiji and Australia.

31-year-old Cuthbert hasn’t played in Wales since 2017 since he played for Exeter Chiefs in the last three seasons.

However, Cuthbert remembered returning to Welsh rugby when he joined the Osprey in June.

Wings with a 47 Welsh cap give Wayne Pivak a welcome option Fitness suspicion against Liam Williams.

The Gloucester Wing’s Louis Rees-Zammit is outside the World Rugby international match and will not be able to compete in the New Zealand match on Saturday. Leigh Halfpenny is out of the entire series due to an injury.

After leaving Cardiff for Exeter in 2018, there was doubt as to whether Cuthbert would play again in Wales.

This move has halted his international career due to national qualification rules. Cuthbert fell short of the 60 caps required to play in Wales while playing in a club abroad.

Cuthbert He says he is “a more experienced and more mature person” After a successful stint in England, he enjoyed the success of the Premiership and the Champions Cup.

The 6-foot-6-inch player made his debut in Wales in 2011 and helped the Warren Gatland team win the Grand Slam in 2012.

He was part of the British & Irish Lions team in 2013 and won one test cap.

Before Osprey debuted earlier this month, Cuthbert said, “I love playing again in Wales,” adding that he “plays game by game” to record his injuries in the Exeter.

He made his first Osprey appearance over Benetton at the United Rugby Championship on October 16th and reappeared last weekend when Toby Booth’s side defeated Münster.
