With Friday’s clash with England at the Millennium Stadium rapidly approaching, Wales have been hit with another injury blow as Leigh Halfpenny has been ruled out, after suffering an ankle injury in training.
Wales have been injury stricken in their build up for their first RBS Six Nations game with the likes of Gethin Jenkins, Adam Jones, George North, Tom Shanklin, Andrew Bishop and Richie Rees all ruled out already through injury.
With winger Halfpenny out, George Prydie, the eighteen year old who became the youngest player to represent Wales in 2010, will get the call up. Prydie will have the opportunity to win a starting spot if he can beat off Shane Williams and Morgan Stoddart.
It is a great chance for Prydie, but will be a big blow for Warren Gatland and the Welsh management team to lose Halfpenny, especially after losing wingers North and Shanklin already.
