Wales receive timely Six Nations injury boost

Wales have received a boost ahead of their Six Nations clash against runaway title favourites Ireland with fly half Sam Costelow back in contention.

The Scarlets No 10 was ruled out of Wales’ previous game against England at Twickenham due to a neck problem.

He was hurt during the first-half in a 27-26 defeat against Scotland, going off before the interval and being replaced by Ioan Lloyd.

Lloyd wore Wales’ No 10 shirt at Twickenham, but Costelow is now on course to increase resources in that position and be available for Dublin on Saturday week.

“He (Costelow) is looking good and trained this morning,” Wales head of physical performance Huw Bennett said.

But while Costelow is up and running again, Bath prop Archie Griffin has been released from Wales’ Six Nations squad.

Griffin, who made his Test debut against England, suffered a knee injury during that game.

The Welsh Rugby Union said that the 22-year-old will continue his rehabilitation at Bath and that a squad replacement would be confirmed in due course.

Keiron Assiratti, Leon Brown and Dillon Lewis are the remaining squad tightheads, although Brown picked up a shoulder knock during the Six Nations opener against Scotland and was not involved at Twickenham.

Back Tom Rogers, meanwhile, will remain with his regional team the Scarlets following a chest injury sustained during their European Challenge Cup victory over Clermont Auvergne on January 13.
