THE SCARLETS tighthead is one of the hottest properties in rugby, and one of the fastest-rising Test stars in Wales. He is featured in Rugby World’s Six Nations special, but as well as that, Lee took some time to tell us all about his Wales team-mates.
So as we build up to England’s visit to Cardiff for the opening game of the Six Nations, who, in the prop’s eyes, are his country’s best movers and finest singers?
The snappiest dresser:
“Rhys Webb. But, no, I didn’t see that picture of him in his pants with Prince William…”
“Jake Ball. He wears old man slippers. I just don’t like the shoes he wears!”
“Alun Wyn Jones. He just does it…looks in your eyes!”
“I’ll say Mike Phillips. I sang a song for my own initiation – the old song Country Roads – but that didn’t go down to well. Terrible!”
“James King. He’s the most focussed in camp.”
Most exciting player:
“George North. I played with him through the age-grades, and to be back with him would be good. Oh my god, he’s a monster. It’s the only way to describe him. And there’s definitely more to come from him.”
