Warren Gatland said he would have no qualms about starting the flanker, despite his lack of match fitness, but the second-row Alun Wyn Jones, who was named captain in place of Warburton, will wear the armband if Lydiate fails to return to the squad's training base by Friday. "I have told Dan to take a few days off and we will be able to accommodate him even if he returns on Friday," Gatland said.

Wales name team to face Boks 2013-11-05 Cardiff - Ospreys wing Eli Walker is set to make his Wales debut against the Springboks after being named in coach Warren Gatland's starting side to face the Springboks at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday. The 21-year-old has been given his chance after injury ruled out wing Alex Cuthbert from the first of Wales's four November internationals. Meanwhile Rhys Priestland returns at fly-half after missing all of Wales's Six Nations title-winning campaign last season with an Achilles injury. British and Irish Lions skipper Sam Warburton again captains the side from the back-row where Dan Lydiate, one of the stars of the combined side's 2-1 series win in Australia this year, makes his first Wales appearance since 2012 following an ankle injury. Walker has long been regarded as one of the best finishers in the Celtic League but a back injury ruled him out of both the Six Nations and Wales's two-Test pre-season tour of Japan. "Eli has impressed for his region and while w ...

Centre pair Jamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies continue their winning Test partnership in midfield alongside Six Nations try hero Alex Cuthbert.

Wales flanker Dan Lydiate will make his comeback tomorrow after missing the whole of Rugby Union's Six Nations with an ankle injury.
Six Nations preview; Wales v Ireland Wales captain Sam Warburton has held off the challenge of Justin Tipuric and will line-up in his usual openside flanker berth against Ireland on Saturday. Speculation had been rife that Warburton’s position was under-threat and that he may be moved across the back-row to the blinside as a result of Tipuric’s outstanding form and an injury to first choice No.6 Dan Lydiate. But caretaker coach Rob Howley has kept faith with Warburton and Tipuric will start on the bench with Aaron Shingler and Toby Faletau set to pack down at blindside and No.8 respectively. Elsewhere, Dragons lock Andrew Coombs is set to make his Test debut with Wales battling an injury crisis that has sidelined Alun Wyn Jones, Luke Charteris and Bradley Davies. As a result, Coombs will partner Ian Evans in the second row while Adam Jones returns at tight-head prop after missing the autumn whitewash with a knee injury. Dan Biggar gets the nod ahead of James Hook at fly-half with Rhy Priestland also o ...
