All four featured for Wales over the past month with prop Brown and hooker Dee both winning their first caps.

The quartet re-joined their regional teammates at Llangorse multi-activity centre on Monday for a team building exercise as the team developed their team values and culture.

However, Head Coach Bernard Jackman is keen to give them time to recover from the exhaustion of the Under Armour Series.

“The group who played against Ulster performed well and they deserve another crack at backing it up," said Jackman.

“For us, we’ll get more in the long term by giving those boys another week.

“They’re not having a week off but they’re not going to play.

“They’ll come back mentally and physically refreshed on Monday and we’ve obviously got a busy period with Newcastle and the games at the end of December and into January.

 “I’ve experienced it myself, when you’re in camp for a November or the Six Nations it’s very intense.”

Jackman confirmed that Brown is going through the necessary return to play protocols following a concussion on international duty.
