Wales v Argentina – Autumn International – Principality Stadium

Wales have been forced to call up two forwards after losing lock Will Rowlands and back row Dan Lydiate with injuries sustained against Argentina on Saturday.


Wayne Pivac’s men beat Los Pumas 20-13 but the victory has come at a considerable cost.

Rowlands left the field clutching his arm and it has been revealed that he has a significant shoulder injury.

Lydiate also left with an arm injury which has since been confirmed to be a fractured forearm.

“Dafydd Jenkins (Exeter Chiefs) and Rhys Davies (Ospreys) have been called up to the Wales senior men’s squad for the remainder of the Autumn Nations Series.

“They replace Will Rowlands (Dragons) who suffered a shoulder injury during Wales 20-13 victory over Argentina on Saturday and Dan Lydiate (Ospreys) who suffered a broken forearm in the same match.”

Teenager Jenkins has made seven appearances for Exeter and been a regular for Wales’ Under-20s while Ospreys’ Davies was part of last year’s Autumn Nations Series squad.
