CONFIRMED: Wales duo ruled out of Wallabies clash
NEWS: WillGriff John and Will Rowlands have been ruled out of Wales’ match against Australia on Saturday after suffering concussion, the Welsh Rugby Union has announced.
Prop John and lock Rowlands were forced off with head injuries as Wales secured a 38-23 victory last weekend and both have been released from the squad.
John’s fellow tighthead Tomas Francis is following return-to-play protocols after being concussed in training last week.
Wing Josh Adams, who was withdrawn from the starting line-up just before kick-off against Fiji due to a calf muscle issue, is also being monitored ahead of the Wallabies clash, along with No.8 Aaron Wainwright, who has had a shoulder injury.
The match against the Wallabies is injury-ravaged Wales’ final fixture of a punishing end-of-year campaign, which has included defeats at the hands of the All Blacks and South Africa.
