Women’s Six Nations: Wales captain Hannah Jones urges fans to ‘stick with us’


Wales captain Hannah Jones has urged fans to “stick with us” after their disappointing defeat to Ireland.

Wales were stunned 36-5 in Cork and sit winless at the bottom of the Women’s Six Nations table.

Jones has written an open letter to supporters explaining some of the comments she made post-match.

“I said that Ireland showed more ‘heart and want’ than us, but some people took that as me saying Wales didn’t want to win, which I didn’t mean,” she wrote.

“It’s not possible for anyone to want to win more than us, and our ambition every week is to come away with a win.

“Our hearts are absolutely in our performance, and that’s why I was so affected by the loss after the match.

“I also said that we didn’t turn up, and that we were not converting the opportunities we had in Ireland’s 22 into points on the board.

“I didn’t mean to put the blame on any individual there. It was an honest reflection about what we all, including myself and the coaches, could be doing better.

“Simply put, that wasn’t us on Saturday.”
