Welsh winger Josh Adams fit for England clash

Josh Adams has recovered from a calf injury and is fit to return to the squad to face England in the Six Nations this Saturday.

Adams played at centre against Ireland in the opening game of the competition and sustained an injury that made him miss the victory over Scotland.

Assistant coach Neil Jenkins said: “The boys who’ve had a few niggles have been training.”

“He [Adams] seems all right. He trained with us yesterday and will train with us today [Tuesday].

“Hopefully they’ll all come through unscathed and make themselves available for us on Saturday.”

Willis Halaholo is also available for the England game after a training-caused eye injury kept him out of the squad.

The WRU decided to keep Halaholo in the squad instead of releasing him back to Cardiff, and now looks for his 2022 Six Nations debut.

Taulupe Faletau was called up to the Wales squad earlier this week as he recovered from injury.

The Bath No.8 played a full 80 minutes on Saturday following a seven month spell out due to injury.

In regards to his return to the starting lineup, Neil Jenkins said:

“We’ll see how he goes. It’s not an easy task, is it?

“He’s been out of the game for quite some time. We’ll see how he goes today and I’m sure Wayne will make the right call on him, whether or not he’s involved on Saturday.

“Obviously he’s a class act – we know that from previous experiences. He’s a fantastic player and brilliant to have in the group, in terms of his personality as well.

“It’s just brilliant to have him back and your best players you want available, and Taulupe certainly falls into that category.”

Faletau has been a consistent starter for Wales over the last few years
