England dealt big Calcutta Cup blow and Wales coach wants ‘chaos' in Ireland

Former England captain Dylan Hartley has accused both Scotland and Wales of failing to develop a pathway for players.

“I think Scotland and certainly Wales have been guilty of fielding a 15 and a 23 internationally without having much experience behind them,” he told Gambling Zone.

“Iconic fifteens, especially for Wales, guys like George North, Jamie Roberts, Leigh Halfpenny, Dan Biggar, Alun Wyn – you could name the team with your eyes closed.

“You build these guys, but it’s a bit of an oversight from Wales to not have any other players coming down the pipeline, there should be players pushing the whole time.”
