Cardiff Blues backs coach Paul John believes Josh Navidi and Josh Turnbull couldn’t have done any more as they push for Wales selection.

24-year-old Navidi, who has impressed at number eight this season, is a possible inclusion in Warren Gatland’s squad revealed on January 20.

The same goes for 26-year-old blindside flanker or second-row Turnbull, with coach John praising the pair for their performances at Cardiff Blues.

“They’re definitely putting their hands up and getting noticed,” he told BBC Sport.

“To be fair to those boys, I do not think they can do any more.

“They have been playing really well and been outstanding for us every game.

“They’re doing everything possibly really. You cannot ask any more of the pair of them.”
