Jamie Roberts won't have any issues regarding his release for Wales duty according to Harlequins boss Conor O'Shea.

The Racing Métro centre's move to the Premiership was confirmed by his new club on Monday.

Roberts will join former Wales team-mate Adam Jones at The Stoop and become the latest Welsh international to ply his trade in the English top flight.

Richard Hibbard, Bradley Davies and Paul James, who is returning to Wales with the Ospreys, have all been unavailable for certain camps or matches this season because of certain dates falling outside of World Rugby's official international window.

O'Shea however made clear to the BBC that Roberts wouldn't be put in that position.

"Whenever he needs to be available for Wales he will be," he said.

I know his commitment. He wants to go to another World Cup, he wants to go on Lions tours and he also wants to win trophies.

"Jamie's going to play, train, you name it. That's what he wants to do and he wants to play for Wales.

"I think we're all very happy with that and so is Gatland."
