Dragon gets Wales re-call as Pivac jettisons Cardiff forward
Wales have released Kirby Myhill back to Cardiff in favour of re-calling the more experienced Elliot Dee to the squad.
Dee was injured during a United Rugby Championship match last month, but returned to action last Friday for the Dragons’ A side.
“Dee made a return to action last Friday, in Dragons A’s starting line-up for the friendly fixture against Scarlets Development.
“Kirby Myhill, who made his international debut against New Zealand in Wales’ opening Autumn Nations Series Test, has returned to Cardiff Rugby.”
It’s good news for Wayne Pivac’s Wales who are getting hammered elsewhere with injuries.
“Josh felt something in his leg in the warm-up… Hopefully that won’t keep him out for too long,” Pivac said. “We had a couple of head knocks, WillGriff John and Will Rowlands. With a six-day turnaround, we might have to dig deeper into the squad.
“Aaron Wainwright should be ready though and Tomas Francis is already into the (concussion) protocols.”
