Wales missing Hill for last two
Forward Cory Hill will play no further part in Wales' push for Six Nations glory after picking up an injury.
The second-row sustained an ankle injury in the 21-13 victory over England last weekend and has been ruled out of the remaining two games against Scotland and Ireland.
Hill scored a try against England and put in an impressive display as Wales fought back in the second half to take the win, and his absence is a big blow.
Even so, Wales believe they have a strong enough squad to help them to Six Nations and Grand Slam glory.
“Cory was outstanding on Saturday,” Wales skills coach Neil Jenkins told WRU TV. “He scored a try as well and is a fantastic player for us and a good guy to have around the squad, so he is certainly going to be a loss.
“But any loss is someone else’s opportunity, and we have some fantastic players in that position as well. I am sad for Cory, but it is an opportunity for someone else.”
