PROP Gil Dudson insists Wales will draw a lot out of this autumn international series – regardless of the results.

He said: “England are definitely the favourites to win (the tournament) but it’s not about just that, it’s about developing us for the World Cup.

“We are missing a few senior players through injury and a couple of young boys have come into the squad.

“It’s all about learning, because we’ve got quite a young squad and we want to build towards next year.”

Dudson, who missed a mid-season Test against France through injured, figured for Wales in last year’s Four Nations series.

“I always want to play for Wales, any chance I get, and I’m looking forward to it,” he said.

The England squad was due back today from their 10-day training camp in South Africa.
