Date published: May 29 2016

Wales have announced that they have called Ellis Jenkins into their squad to tour New Zealand after an injury struck Dan Lydiate on Sunday.

Lydiate, who captained Wales against England, has suffered a shoulder injury that he will fail to recover from in time for the three-Test series.

Uncapped Cardiff Blues flanker Jenkins, a former Wales U20 captain, will join up with the squad before they depart for New Zealand on Monday.
