Wales winger Alex Cuthbert has been ruled out for up to six weeks after suffering a shoulder injury against Tonga at Eden Park.
The 27-year-old former Lion, who played an influential part in their 24-6 victory yesterday, scoring the opening try.
“Alex has been in excellent form leading into this tour – and it was there for all to see at Eden Park on Friday,” said Wales head coach Robin McBryde.
“t’s a shame he’s had to leave us at this juncture,
“He’s also been a great influence off the field with the younger players in the squad. I know he’ll work hard now to be back in action for Cardiff Blues’ pre-season.”
Wales will not be calling up a replacement as they prepare to face Samoa in Apia this Friday.
