Wales have announced that wing Eli Walker has been called into their squad to replace Liam Williams, who will miss the rest of the Rugby World Cup.

The 23-year-old has already been a late call-up to the squad after Leigh Halfpenny was ruled out before he then suffered a hamstring problem.

And now Walker returns for the injured Williams, who suffered a foot injury against Australia, ahead of Wales' quarter-final against South Africa.

Williams' injury is the latest blow for Wales, who have already lost the services of fellow backs Halfpenny, Rhys Webb, Hallam Amos, Jonathan Davies, Scott Williams and Cory Allen.
