Fresh start excites Faletau
Wales number eight Taulupe Faletau says he has been reinvigorated by his injury absence.
The 28-year-old broke his arm twice last season, a setback that ruled him out of his country's Grand Slam campaign during the spring.
In fact, he has not played internationally since March 2018 but is back in the fold having been included in Warren Gatland's pre-World Cup training squad.
Faletau also appeared at the global showpiece in both 2011 and 2015 and admits he has rediscovered his fire after his tough spell on the sidelines.
"It's good to be back in and among the boys and training with them again," said the Bath player.
"I didn't realise at the time but being away from rugby for that amount of time, the hunger is there more now.
"When you are doing it year in, year out, you take it for granted at times.
"Hopefully, when I get on the pitch, I can last longer than last time."
Jack Ogalbe has been working for the team since his student days, having enjoyed a successful placement. He is an avid West Ham fan but also enjoys writing on rugby union, golf, tennis and cycling.
