Rennie said: “Leone gives us a great ball-carrying option in the back-row. He’ll commit a lot of defenders and can create space for others, and we’re excited to give him a crack on the side of the scrum.

“The most frustrating thing (under Gatland) was that I had never been told why I wasn’t a part of the squad."
