WALES INJURY UPDATE
Dan Lydiate and Gethin Jenkins are both expected to return to full training this week in time to make themselves available for selection for Wales' second round RBS 6 Nations clash with Scotland at the Millennium Stadium on Sunday (Kick-off 3pm).
The Wales side to take on the Scots in Cardiff will now be named on Thursday, 9 February (see above), to allow injury issues to subside and to await news from the citing hearing taking place tomorrow (Wed) involving Bradley Davies.
Dragons back row Lydiate (ankle) and Blues prop Jenkins (knee) will be integrated back into full training during the early part of this week as will Blues wing Alex Cuthbert, who is following the normal return to play protocols following taking a bump to the head.
Cuthbert will be available for selection and it is also hoped his Blues colleague, the Wales captain Sam Warburton, will recover sufficiently from a dead leg to be in contention, but his fitness will be continually assessed over the next few days.
While tickets are still available for Wales versus Scotland and the clash with Italy on Saturday 10 March, fans are advised to get their tickets now to avoid disappointment.
Tickets are available online at wru.co.uk and ticketlineuk.com or from the telephone hotline 02920 230130.
