A few weeks before the 2024 Six Nations was scheduled to begin, Wales Rugby learned that its young superstar, 22-year-old Louis Rees-Zammit, was leaving the sport to pursue a career in the NFL.

After a strong Rugby World Cup performance from the Welsh team, where they advanced out of the quarterfinals before being upset by Argentina, the squad had high hopes for the 2024 Six Nations. 

They still do, but it'll be more difficult. 

Wales went 1-0-4 in the Six Nations in 2023, the only win coming against Italy. But Wales went undefeated in pool play at the 2023 Rugby World Cup, including a 40-6 win over Australia. It set up a intriguing match with Argentina in the quarterfinals. The Pumas won 29-17. 

Wales enters the 2024 Six Nations ranked No. 8 in the world.
