Wales Injury update

Wales Injury update

Wales are sweating on the fitness of number eight Aaron Wainwright for Saturday’s second Test against Australia in Melbourne.

Wainwright suffered a leg injury and was forced off during the closing stages.

“We are waiting for a further assessment,” Wales assistant coach Rob Howley said.

Full-back Liam Williams, wing Josh Hathaway and prop Gareth Thomas also suffered knocks during the Sydney encounter, with Gatland likely to name his starting line-up on Thursday.

“Liam Williams hopefully will be available for selection. We are waiting on him,” Howley added.

“Gareth Thomas had a bit of a dead leg, he was back in training today. Josh Hathaway is being monitored, he took a bump on his arm.

“In terms of those players coming off, fingers crossed they will be available for selection.”
