Wednesday, January 22, 2014

CARDIFF - Wales have been hit by an injury blow after back-row forward Ryan Jones was withdrawn from their Six Nations squad because of a hamstring injury.

Jones suffered the injury in his region's Heineken Cup defeat to Leinster last week and is set to miss Wales' defence of their title.

A Welsh Rugby Union statement said Jones had been released.

"Jones met up with the squad this morning as they began preparations for the forthcoming RBS Six Nations and has been ruled out with a hamstring injury."
