Morgan eager to go head to head against Tips

Wales skipper Jac Morgan is expecting a few tugs on his jersey, a bit of niggle and a few harsh words when he finds himself playing against his Ospreys club captain Justin Tipuric in the game against the Barbarians.

But while many see the non-capped match as being a bit of a jamboree, Morgan is going to impress upon his players that they will be representing their country – just as they did in France during the recent World Cup.

“It’s always an honour to play for Wales. To be able to put on that jersey means a hell of a lot for everyone – capped or uncapped, you are still representing Wales in this game,” said Morgan.

“It will be a great experience for me, especially playing against ‘Tips’ having played with him for the last few years.

“I know the guys who are up against Alun Wyn are excited, and they have a huge amount of respect for him as a player, a person, and as a leader.

“We haven’t spoken about him or Justin. It’s just a chance to celebrate their careers along with Leigh Halfpenny’s.

“There is no doubt there will be a jersey pulled, or a bit of niggle or words said. I expect that, along with some good humour as a bit of a wind-up, but I’m looking forward to playing some positive rugby.

“Alun Wyn is obviously going to be pretty motivated out there to give a good performance. The professionalism and standards Alun Wyn, Tips and Leigh set as players, have been pretty inspirational for the young boys coming through.

“That’s what we aspire to be. Even at the end of their careers, they are probably among the last people out on the training field still trying to get better and improve.”

There are always tries on offer for the fans when the Baa-Baas come to town and the Eddie Jones and Sott Robertson coached outfit have plenty of attacking flair in their backs, and power upfront.

“I was obviously disappointed about the quarter final result against Argentina, but I’ve had a couple of weeks rest and recovery and I’m now looking forward to this weekend. We’ve been trying to lean a couple of new things in training this week,” added Morgan.
