Gatland to React to Surprise Departure and Welsh Star Joins Premiership Club: Rugby News Update

Latest Rugby Headlines and Updates for Saturday, June 22

Rugby headlines on Saturday, June 22 are making waves in the rugby world.

First up, there are reports that hooker Sam Parry left the squad this week because he felt disrespected by head coach Warren Gatland. The Daily Mail reported that Parry was surprised to learn he was “only involved to help the team prepare for the tour” and was given less training kit than other players. Gatland is expected to respond to these claims before and after today’s match against South Africa at Twickenham.

In other news, former Wales international Tom James has signed for Welsh Premiership side Bargoed RFC. James, who retired in 2020 after bravely revealing his battle with serious depression, will bring experience and talent to the team.

Meanwhile, Wales is gearing up for their match against South Africa at Twickenham, with several key players unavailable. Number eight Aaron Wainwright believes this game is crucial for the team’s development leading up to the 2027 World Cup. Wales will be testing their depth and giving new players a chance to gain valuable experience on the international stage.

Lastly, Wales forwards coach Jonathan Humphreys is confident that Taine Plumtree and Christ Tshiunza will add physicality to the Welsh pack this summer. Both players have been working on improving their size and strength during their time off, and Gatland is eager to see them in action.

Stay tuned for more updates on these developing rugby stories.
