Anscombe Wants Wales Fly Half Spot

Anscombe Wants Wales Fly Half Spot

Cardiff Blues boss John Mulvihill says Gareth Anscombe is hopeful of playing more for Wales as a fly-half. Anscombe was the man of the match in an enthralling 23-15 victory over Dragons at Rodney Parade on Saturday.

He has started four games this season for the Blues with fellow fly-half Jarrod Evans being unavailable for selection through illness.

The 27-year-old also shared No.10 duties with Rhys Patchell on Wales’ summer tour against South Africa and Argentina, with Dan Biggar rested.

“One of his goals at the start of the season is that he wanted to be an international 10,” said Mulvihill.
“The way it has happened with Jarrod being out he has had an opportunity to start a number of games at 10.

“Hopefully he has put his hand up for selection because it is something that he really wants, but more than it is good for Welsh rugby.

“He is a real organiser, he is quick, is a good defender and got a great kick. So he is the all-round package for us.”
