The Wales captain is expected to miss the entire Six Nations after picking up the injury in a 16-54 defeat by New Zealand in Cardiff in October.

But having the lock, the world’s most-capped rugby player, in the squad should give the national squad a morale boost during the build-up to their fourth-round match at home to France on March 11.

Reigning champions Wales are fifth in the Six Nations table following Saturday’s 23-19 defeat by England at Twickenham.

Rhys Priestland has returned to Cardiff after picking up an injury while Wales have released six players for regional action this weekend.
