Wales captain Sam Warburton says players are keen to show their support for former captain Matthew Rees as they prepare to face Argentina tomorrow.
– Sam Warburton, Wales Captain
We spoke as a squad about how to show our support and recognise what Matthew is going through and we felt putting a symbol on the jersey would be a good idea to show we are right behind him.
The idea was a purple smiley face. The purple to represent the testicular cancer charities and the smiley face to represent Matthew as we know him – Smiler.
For me personally he has been a great support in my career and hopefully in a small way this shows how we feel.
