Wales Rugby Union Six Nations Betting Guide
The Welsh play rugby like they sing, well sometimes, certainly in their heyday when the likes of Cliff Morgan, Barry John, Phil Bennett, Gareth Edwards and JPR Williams were in the line up. These were some of the best players ever seen on a rugby pitch who played rugby with a flair and panache that at the time could only be matched by the All Blacks. They will be hoping to prove their class once more with victory in the 2018 Six Nations.

Recently the Welsh have been going through a golden patch with Grand Slam wins in 2005, 2008 and 2012 with teams packed full of International stars. They under performed in 2009 when they started as favourites but they will hope to be strong once again in and will fancy their chances of winning another crown.
The Welsh very first international was on February 19, 1881 against England, at Richardson's field in Blackheath. Now this is a record that will be difficult to beat in the modern era in that between 1900 and 1913 they were unbeaten at home.
Then the really great era began in 1969 where for over a decade they won five Five Nations titles, three Grand Slams and five Triple Crown wins, as well as beating England in nine out of 10 games and defeating Australia four from six.
In recent times Neil Jenkins holds the world record for Test points with 1,049 points in 87 Tests for Wales.
