Six Nations blow for Wales
NEWS: Wales scrumhalf Kieran Hardy has been ruled out of the remainder of his team’s Six Nations campaign due to a hamstring injury.
Hardy played a key part in his team’s 40-24 Triple Crown-clinching win over England last Saturday at the Principality Stadium.
The 25-year-old was one of his team’s four try-scorers in the victory.
“Kieran has been released from the squad due to a hamstring injury suffered in the game versus England on Saturday,” said a Welsh Ruby Union statement on Thursday. “He will continue his rehabilitation back at the Scarlets.”
“Aaron Wainwright [Dragons] and Owen Watkin [Ospreys] have been released to their respective regions for action this weekend. They will link back up with the national squad on Monday.”
Wales are sitting on top of the Six Nations table with three wins from three matches.
They will face Italy in Rome in Round Four before finishing their campaign against France in Paris in Round Five.
