Wales refused to blame their crippling injury list as the nation surveyed the wreckage of our heartbreaking Rugby World Cup quarter-final exit against South Africa.
But few countries could have come through the pool of death and competed so heroically against the Springboks with a squad as decimated as Wales’.
Former Wales outside-half great Jonathan Davies said on the BBC’s Scrum V programme: “I’m convinced if Wales would’ve had Liam Williams and Scott Williams they would have scored.
“We had to score tries when we had two men extra (against Australia in the pool stage). We were slightly one-dimensional because of injuries. “Liam Williams, Scott Williams and Leigh Halfpenny stay out wide and stretch defences and would have scored tries."
But just who was missed most by Wales during this World Cup campaign and, with the Six Nations just four months away, when can we expect to see the walking wounded back in action?
