Parry has been around for too long to get carried away with his recent landmarks of international recognition and becoming an Ospreys centurion and thoughts of Six Nations selection are definitely on the backburner.
“I don’t think that far head, when you do you lose track of what is important and that is performing to the level I need to for the Ospreys before then,” said Parry.
“If I do that and it means I get selected for Wales again, brilliant. I have four caps and if the opportunity comes again I will relish it.
“As a young boy growing up, it’s something you dream of but for me, as I am a bit older now, it was about the satisfaction of all the hard work I have put in.
“The effort you put in when your playing but also the effort of building yourself back up from the disappointment of being injured and getting back to the levels that mean you are selected for international rugby.”
Parry’s recognition at international level with Wales is recognition and resilience he has shown with the Ospreys. It is also symbolic of the influence of new Head Coach, Toby Booth and the competition for places for the hooker berth developing within the squad.
