INJURY NEWS: Centre ruled out of Wales Autumn Internationals with ankle problem
The Welsh Rugby Union have confirmed today that Dragons centre Tyler Morgan has been released from their squad for the upcoming Autumn Internationals.
A statement read: ‘Tyler Morgan’s ankle injury sustained in the fixture for the Dragons against the Ospreys last weekend will preclude him from taking any part of the Under Armour Series – with this in mind he will continue his management at his region.’
Scarlets Scott Williams, who was omitted from Wales’ initial selection with fellow Scarlet Hadleigh Parkes brought in, has been called up as a replacement.
Williams’ return comes after Scarlets boss Wayne Pivac spoke of his positive response to being omitted.
Injuries has ruled out a host of players including Sam Warburton and George North, but after announcing his departure from Ospreys, Rhys Webb is included in the squad.
There are five uncapped players named with Leon Brown, Sam Cross, Elliot Dee, Hadleigh Parkes and Owen Watkin also selected, but after recovering from a lion bite, Scott Baldwin has not been included.
Wales begin their autumn series with the visit of Australia, followed by games against Georgia, New Zealand and South Africa in Cardiff.
