sport news Josh Adams insists nothing have kept him from Wales' win over England

It nearly didn't happen. Wales fans could have been denied Josh Adams' picture-perfect jump to beat Elliot Daly to a high ball — the wriggle over the try-line and explosion of joy at sealing a win against the old enemy — if the physios had got their way. They had asked him before the scrum that led to his try if he wanted to hobble off.

Adams had pulled his groin after a heavy tackle from England captain Owen Farrell. He already had tape wrapped around his head after cutting his left eyebrow when Mark Wilson bashed into him.

Those knocks will keep him out of Worcester's relegation dog-fight with Newcastle - but Wales v England? No chance.

'I got up, waddled back to the wing and felt pain easing slowly,' Adams recalls. 'Thankfully I stayed on or I wouldn't have scored!

'I've seen the clips of the beer going wild!', Adams adds with a smile. 'It was Sanjay (Liam Williams) who jumped on me and put me to the floor, Jon (Davies) came over and tapped me on the head. It was a special moment.

'I could have broken my leg and I still would have celebrated the way I did!'

That acrobatic try felt like the moment his future in Wales was sealed, with Adams on the horns of a dilemma — should he put club or country first.

Wales's man of the moment is a victim of rugby's mad rules. The 23-year-old winger must soon decide whether his priority is Wales or Worcester.

When his club contract is up at the end of this season, does he stay in England and sacrifice a blossoming Test career? Or does the red jersey lure him back to the country that once rejected him?

The Welsh Rugby Union have stipulated that any player taking up a new contract that is not with a Welsh region must have 60 caps to be eligible for the national team. Adams has only nine.

'With both Warren Gatland (Wales coach) and Alan Solomons (Worcester coach) saying, "We want to have him", you can sometimes get caught up in it, lose your way and concentration on the games, but you have to block that out as much as you can,' says Adams.
