Wales bring in uncapped prop ahead of Ireland clash

SQUAD UPDATE: Wales coach Warren Gatland has added uncapped prop Harri O’Connor to his Six Nations squad ahead of Saturday’s clash against title favourites Ireland in Dublin.


The 23-year-old Scarlets forward went on as a replacement during a non-cap game between Wales and the Barbarians in November, but has yet to feature at Test level.

Bath prop Archie Griffin recently withdrew from the squad following a knee injury that he suffered on his Wales debut during the 14-16 defeat against England at Twickenham.

Leon Brown started in the opening loss against Scotland but suffered a shoulder injury and was replaced by Keiron Assiratti.

Wales are second from bottom of the Six Nations table after their two defeats while Ireland are on course for an unprecedented back-to-back Six Nations Grand Slam after wins against France and Italy.
