Williams and Davies called into Wales squad

First Team News | 28th June 2021

Cardiff Blues duo Seb Davies and Lloyd Williams have been called into the Wales squad ahead of the summer Tests against Canada and Argentina.

Lock Davies, who has nine caps to his name to date, replaces Ospreys' Adam Beard following his call-up to the British and Irish Lions squad. The Ospreys forward replaced club team-mate, Alun Wyn Jones, following the captain's shoulder injury in the clash against Japan on Saturday.

Scrum half Williams is drafted in after Dragons' Rhodri Williams suffered a shoulder injury, which is currently being assessed. 

Wales have also called upon Samson Lee and Rhys Davies as Wayne Pivac adds to his squad following an injury to Tomas Francis and Josh Navidi's call-up to Warren Gatland's Lions squad.

The duo join nine of their Cardiff Rugby team-mates in the squad as they prepare for the clash against Canada on Saturday.
