Wales team to be announced early
September 25, 1999
The first of the 82 Rugby World Cup team sheets will be posted on Sunday afternoon, when Wales coach Graham Henry announces the XV who will open proceedings against Argentina on Friday.
Wales were not due to give the team out until Monday.
But Henry - who also picked his squad weeks ahead of the RWC deadline - is clearly happy to give Argentina a full five days to work out the Wales game plan.
Welsh confidence in announcing so early contrasts with the problems in Alex Wyllie's Puma squad, forced to leave skipper Lisandro Arbizu behind for treatment in Buenos Aires.
