- Jones failed head injury assessment, reveals Warren Gatland
- Johnny Sexton awaits Dublin date against defending champions
Alun Wyn Jones is out of Wales’s Test against Scotland in Edinburgh next week. Warren Gatland, smarting from a losing start to his second stint in charge of Wales, confirmed that Jones failed a head injury assessment in the second half of his 156th appearance.
“We’ve always wanted to have other players in the squad get opportunities,” he said. “Alun Wyn failed his HIA, so he won’t be available for the next game – so that’s one. Tom Francis came off at half-time with a tight calf, which will need to be scanned. We will look at what players will get an opportunity next week.”
