Rhys Webb ‘heartbroken’ over Wales policy, but will not renege on Toulon move
“Heartbroken” Rhys Webb says he will not change his decision to join Toulon in 2018 – even though it means he will not be eligible to play for Wales.
A Welsh Rugby Union rule change means players taking up a new deal with a team outside Wales must have won 60 caps to be able to play Test rugby.
Scrum-half Webb, capped 28 times, says it is a “disgrace” he was not warned the policy change was a possibility.
“I don’t know how long it’s going to take me to get over it,” said Webb, 28.
“It’s a joke. I’m disappointed. Representing your country means so much to me and being told I won’t be able to play for them is heartbreaking.”
