Leicester Tigers winger Adam Thompstone is already dreaming of a possible Premiership title win when the league resumes. The Tigers were impressive in the 2016/17 season so they hope to achieve more in the forthcoming season.
Thompstone featured in 30 games where he ran eight tries. He was eventually voted the Players’ Player of the Year for his feats and consistency. The player, like his teammates, feels they should have done more than their playoff semi-final finish. Wasps ended their run with a victory so Thompstone feels it would serve as a solid foundation when they make a strong title push next season.
Women rugby has been growing quickly in recent years. The Welsh Rugby Union chief Martyn Phillips has asked that the nation have a running female team alongside the men’s. After the 15-15 draw Test series result with the All Blacks on Saturday, the future of the men’s tours seems safe – it was their first drawn Test series in over 60 years.
The coach Warren Gatland has seen his profile rise and he has received accolades for his work from several quarters. The Lions team is riding high and Phillips opines that this is the best time for the Welsh to have a women’s tour.
