Certain comments and actions in the build-up to the England and Poland games have made my position within the Welsh squad untenable for the time being. — Ben Thatcher

Glenn’s 100 percent fit and ready to go so it’s sensible that he returns to the squad given his prior status as the premier fast bowler in the world, — Trevor Hohns

My arms have mutinied against me brutes!My fingers fidget like ten idle brats,My back’s been stiff for hours, damned hours.Death never gives his squad a Stand-at-ease. — Wilfred Owen

We spoke about lapses of concentration and things which he had to put right and, in this match, he put it all in. I’m delighted he’s taken it on board. I can’t consider sending him out on loan again. I’ve got a squad of players who are still in the cup and have some important league matches coming up. I can understand his concerns. With a World Cup in the summer he needs to impress his manager but, on that performance against Fulham, he can definitely do that. — Bryan Robson

I wouldn’t have wanted to come here unless we were definitely pushing for a European spot. I think we’re definitely capable of that, given the squad we’ve got. — Jermaine Jenas

Barry has shown significant improvement with every game he has played this year with Munster. His call-up to the national squad is due reward for his performances to date. — Eddie O’Sullivan
