Head Coach Warren Gatland has called up four players to his British & Irish Lions squad.
Wales’ Cory Hill, Kristian Dacey, Gareth Davies and Tomas Francis will join the squad this afternoon following their Test against Tonga in Auckland last night.
The Welsh quartet will attend the game against the Maori All Blacks in Rotorua this evening.
“We have said all along that we need to give ourselves the best chance of winning the Test series and that could potentially involve calling up players.
“Bringing in these players from an identical time zone, who can hit the ground running and step straight in rather than having to adjust following long-haul travel will help us manage players before the 1st Test, give us quality training numbers to prepare properly as well as offering us options for selection for the Chiefs match.”
There will be a further announcement regarding call-ups following the conclusion of other Home Union Tests this weekend.
