Wales confirm their replacement for Josh Navidi

Cardiff Blues wing Owen Lane has been called into Wales’s World Cup squad as replacement for injured back-row forward Josh Navidi.

The 21-year-old made his Test debut during Wales’s World Cup warm-up games, scoring a try against Ireland in Cardiff.

The Welsh Rugby Union confirmed that Lane is on his way to Japan, with Navidi sidelined for the remainder of the tournament due to a hamstring injury. Lane will arrive in Tokyo later on Tuesday.

Wales face semi-final opponents South Africa in Yokohama on Sunday.
