Josh Navidi determined to take Rugby World Cup chance with Wales

Josh Navidi says hes determined to make the most of his own World Cup experience after representing hismad journey into the Wales side.
His debut was made by the Cardiff Blues back-rower for Warren Gatlands side in 2013, but then had to wait four years for his next cap.
Navidi will start their pool game on Wednesday , which will see them qualify for the quarter-finals using a triumph against Fiji and is a standard for Wales.
Its been crazy, said Navidi. A couple of months ago Id take a step back and think about it. I would not have believed you if youd said to me personally that Id be playing this World Cup.
It is great to be here embracing it and carrying the chance. I continue playing and can keep the jersey.
Its gone well. I know the jersey can be taken off you so I just need to adopt it. Youve got to take it if you can hold on to it for as long as you are able to.
Gatland is effusive in his praise for Navidi and says a number of the greatest coaches in the world have enquired about the 28-year-old.
The head coach said:He runs hard, overly hard, does the basics well and does not make many errors.
I remember talking to John Mitchell [England defence trainer ] later we played England at home, and he said that the England boys have a lot of respect for him as an individual player. I is appreciation of quality.
A few years ago – I believe it was just one of Joshs initial games when we played with the All Blacks – and – Steve Hansen said:where did you receive that number seven from?
We are extremely blessed in that section. We have some true quality loose forward who are all capable of doing a job, and there is some real rivalry.
