Giles re­places in­jured Amos in Wales squad

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

New­port Gwent Dragons back Hal­lam Amos has with­drawn from Wales’s squad for the end-of-year Tests due to a shoul­der in­jury, the Welsh Rugby Union an­nounced yes­ter­day. Amos, who can play wing or full­back, sus­tained the in­jury dur­ing Satur­day’s one-sided 32-8 loss to Aus­tralia at Cardiff’s Prin­ci­pal­ity Sta­dium. His place in the squad has been taken by un­capped 18-year-old Ospreys wing Kee­lan Giles, who has been train­ing with the group since the start of the cam­paign. Scrum-half Rhys Webb is a doubt for this Satur­day’s clash with Ar­gentina af­ter hurt­ing his an­kle against the Wal­la­bies. To­mos Wil­liams has been called up to pro­vide cover. Wales are with­out a win since beat­ing Italy in their fi­nal game of this year’s Six Na­tions Cham­pi­onship and have won just three of their last 12 Tests. They are also due to host Ja­pan and South Africa later in No­vem­ber. — AFP
