Halaholo sustained the injury in training and will now remain in camp with Wayne Pivac’s squad instead of being released to Cardiff this weekend as planned.

The Welsh Rugby Union said: “Following a laceration to the eyelid sustained in training on Tuesday, Uilisi Halaholo will remain with the Wales squad this week for monitoring rather than being released to Cardiff Rugby.”

Halaholo was due to have been one of six Wales players released from camp this weekend to get minutes under their belt ahead of the England game.

Cardiff pair Rhys Carre and James Ratti are available for Friday’s United Rugby Championship home game with Zebre.

Ospreys outside-half Gareth Anscombe, Scarlets scrum-half Kieran Hardy and Ulster hooker Bradley Roberts will also rejoin the Wales squad after weekend games.
