‘I’m 100 percent fit’ – Webb

Date published: January 30 2017

Wales scrum-half Rhys Webb has declared himself 100 percent fit ahead of the upcoming Six Nations after working his way back from injury.

Webb was part of the Ospreys side that beat Bristol in the Anglo-Welsh Cup as he recovers from an ankle injury he suffered last November.

Now he is back in the Wales squad training ahead of this weekend’s game against Italy in Rome and is feeling good to return to Test rugby.

“I’m 100 percent fit and loving it at the moment,” he told the WRU‘s website. “I’ll go back into camp and train with the boys. I’m not just going in there to make up the numbers. I’ll be going in there to fight to get my jersey back. I feel fit, I feel ready, and I’m raring to go.

“I have played two games and haven’t felt at all like I needed to come off. I feel confident. I know my own body and what I can do. I’ve had plenty left in the tank. International rugby is a step-up, but I’ve been training really well with the boys.”

Webb will be competing with Gareth and Aled Davies for a starting spot and whatever happens in terms of selection, he’s just happy to be back.

“I’ve had a break, injuries seem to happen all the time with me but I’m motivated, fit, and raring to go,” he said.

“It’s going to be a cracking Six Nations. All the teams are strong and Italy had a cracking win over South Africa in the autumn. We know what they can do but we’ll just concentrate on ourselves and what we can do.”
