Squad Update: Two more stars are now available for summer tour

Wales coach Rob Howley has confirmed that George North and Ross Moriarty will be free to face South Africa and Argentina in June.

Three English-based players, Luke Charteris, Josh Adams and Tomas Francis, were withdrawn from the squad last week, with the WRU unable to secure their release for the match against the Springboks.

Although North and Moriarty are still technically contracted to Premiership sides, they are moving to Welsh regions ahead of the 2018/19 season and are available for the match on June 2.

“North and Moriarty are available for selection for all three games and will be playing,” Howley said.

While the RFU have an agreement in place with Premiership clubs to allow players to feature or train outside of World Rugby’s international window, a similar deal does not exist with other countries.
