spreys need quick start in Heineken Cup says John Devereux
Former Lions and Wales centre strongman John Devereux believes the ambitious spreys who have been open in stating their goal is to become the first Welsh team to conquer Europe might not even contend unless they rid themselves of their reputation as slow pool starters. Devereux said: “Going to Leicester is always difficult for any side not many win there but the spreys need to come up with the goods” said the former dual-code international. “Generating momentum is the key in competitions like the Heineken Cup. If the spreys can’t it could be all over for them the following weekend because they host Clermont Auvergne. “Clermont reached the final of the French Championship last season losing to Perpignan and are potentially one of the best teams in Europe. “I’m sure they will come to Swansea buzzing on the back of a bonus-point victory over Italian minnows Viadana in the opening round and confident of doing a number on the spreys. ”And Devereux pointed out that the spreys being below strength will hardly aid their cause.

Ban leaves Williams feeling low
Williams was suspended after being found guilty of faking a blood injury during the Heineken Cup quarter-final defeat against Leinster in April. Former England and Lions scrum-half Matt Dawson has described the ban as ridiculous while Adrian Jarvis the current Bristol star said: “I’ve known Tom a long time through school and at Quins. He’s very low at the moment. “I can’t imagine what it must be like to be told you can’t play for a year when it isn’t through injury. “I don’t know the details and it isn’t my position to comment but hopefully things will work out alright for him.
