Wales call up reinforcements
NEWS: Wales have called Cardiff Blues back Hallam Amos into their Six Nations squad ahead of Saturday’s Round Three match at home to France.
The 22-cap Amos replaces Owen Lane who was released from the squad earlier in the campaign due to injury.
Wayne Pivac’s decision to only call up Amos means the coach is sticking with just two out-halves in his squad and has every confidence that Dan Biggar has overcome his third head injury of the season. It follows rumours that Bath’s Rhys Prientland was in the running for a call-up.
Biggar had been going through concussion protocols after clashing heads with Ireland centre Robbie Henshaw during Wales’ 24-14 Six Nations defeat in Dublin last Saturday week.
The Northampton Saints playmaker failed a dressing room head injury assessment (HIA) shortly afterwards.
Jarrod Evans filled in as a replacement and will again be the likely back-up to Biggar this weekend.
