"Its been great to get all the players together so early this year. These last four days has been really good for teambuilding. We've all had a chance to train and work together and that's going to be invaluable when we face Ireland next month
Wales' first Six Nations game on February 2nd , is a trip to the hotbed that is Lansdowne road, to face an Irish side who will be keen to pick up where they left off last year. A famous victory over England denied Woodward's men the Grand slam.
