Down and out.
Bath playmaker Rhys Priestland will not link up with Wales squad for the upcoming Six Nations championship.
Following further assessments and consultation with a specialist it has been concluded that due to the severity of Rhys Priestland’s hamstring injury, he will remain at Bath Rugby for ongoing rehabilitation and will not link up with the Wales squad on Monday morning.
It is envisaged that the injury will preclude him from taking an active part for the majority of the Six Nations hence this course of action has been deemed the most appropriate.
