Gloucester star James Hook says that he has never contemplated quitting Test rugby, even though he has only started twice for Wales since the last Rugby World Cup.
Hook admits that if he features in the final Wales squad for the England-hosted tournament it would "probably mean more" to him than his 2007 and 2011 World Cup selections.
He will start at fly-half against opening World Cup warm-up opponents Ireland on Saturday in what will be his 78th cap.
Hook spent three seasons with French club Perpignan immediately after the last World Cup, then he joined Gloucester last year following Perpignan's relegation.
Fellow Gloucester teammate Ross Moriarty will also be included in the squad on Saturday in his Test debut. Wales Head Coach Warren Gatland admitted he included Moriarty in the squad at being impressed at how the youngster had 'forced his way' into the Gloucester team.
