Full back Leigh Halfpenny is out for the season with a dislocated shoulder, while scrum half Rhys Webb is an injury doubt for the clash with Scotland. Halfpenny injured his right shoulder tackling Luther Burrell, while Webb limped off with a foot injury. Wales were beaten 29-18 by England, who lifted the Triple Crown for the first time since 2003, at Twickenham. "Rhys is [wearing] a [medical] boot and Leigh has done an arm or a shoulder," said Wales coach Warren Gatland. Wales' hopes of an unprecedented third Six Nations title ended in London.

Jonathan Davies believes Lions scrum-half Mike Phillips could lose his starting place for Wales' next Six Nations game. Former Wales captain Davies suspects head coach Warren Gatland could start with Ospreys' Rhys Webb against France in Cardiff on 21 February instead. "He must be under pressure," Davies told Radio Wales Sport. "Mike hasn't played well and the forwards have had a battering in the last couple of games."
Our team were at Wales' Six Nations base today to quiz coach Warren Gatland in the wake of the Ireland defeat and looking ahead to France next week. Take a look back through what he said.
Resurgent Ireland ease past Wales 08 February 2014, 18:28 Ireland put a huge dent in Welsh hopes of a record third Six Nations title in a row, with a clinical display in Dublin's Lansdowne Road on Saturday as they ran out 26-3 winners. Warren Gatland's men simply never got close to the hosts, who tactically outmanoeuvred the giants in red, and boasted raw strength and aggression to complete the rout. Ireland have not begun a Six Nations with back-to-back victories since the Grand Slam year of 2009, and this comprehensive result will have them dreaming in Dublin. "Well it always helps to have the first two games at home and we would be disappointed not to have four points," said Ireland's outstanding captain Paul O'Connell. "Still it puts us in great heart for what will be a tremendous challenge against England at Twickenham in aa fortnight," added the lock. Jonny Sexton's boot dominated the game, but the performances of Peter O'Mahony, O'Connell, Andrew Trimble and Rob Kearney will give England boss Stuar ...
Kiwi duo clash as O'Driscoll takes centre stage 07 February 2014, 06:51 Ireland coach Joe Schmidt admits it is impossible for him to spring any surprises on Wales counterpart Warren Gatland ahead of Saturday's Six Nations showdown at Dublin's Lansdowne Road. The two New Zealand-born coaches have opposed one another over the course of their rugby careers, while Gatland also has vast experience of the Irish game from his time in charge of the country and his spell as boss of the British and Irish Lions. While there may be a lukewarm welcome for Gatland from the Irish fans, following his controversial decision to drop national hero Brian O'Driscoll from the Lions' third and final test in Australia last year, Schmidt insists he has no special plans for the Welsh visitors. "I've no doubt Warren knows a fair bit about what I do and I know a fair bit about what he does as well," said Schmidt, ahead of a second-round clash that could prove decisive in the destination of the Six Nations title. "Obviously, he's coa ...
Sam Warburton on standby for starting berth in Wales's Six Nations opener • Lions' captain has recovered from shoulder injury • Dan Lydiate may miss Italy match to attend birth Sam Warburton was named on Wales's bench against Italy on Saturday after recovering from the shoulder injury he sustained at the end of the autumn Test series, but the Lions' captain may start the champions' opening match of their Six Nations title defence after Dan Lydiate returned to France on Tuesday when his fiancee went into labour. 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. "We always stress to players the importance of family and I asked Dan if he wanted the weekend off, ...
Sam Warburton is on the subs bench for Wales' Six Nations opener against Italy on Saturday. Alun Wyn Jones takes the captaincy as Warren Gatland's first choice is still struggling with a shoulder injury. George North starts at the wing while Rhys Priestland returns at fly half. We'll have live coverage from the Millennium Stadium on MatchPoint Live this Saturday from 2pm.

Lock Ian Evans will miss Wales' Six Nations defence after being banned for 12 weeks for stamping. Evans, 29, was dismissed by referee Romain Poite during Ospreys' 36-3 Heineken Cup defeat by Leinster after stamping on opponent Mike McCarthy. The British and Irish Lions player pleaded guilty before a disciplinary hearing in Dublin on Thursday. Entry-level suspensions for stamping range from two to nine-plus weeks, with 52 weeks the maximum. It is another blow for Wales coach Warren Gatland, who is already without injured forward Ryan Jones and may not have captain Sam Warburton fit for their opening match against Italy on 1 February.
Warren Gatland opts for tried and proven in pursuit of Six Nations history • Seven players in squad who have moved to England or France • Wales could become first team to win three Six Nations running Warren Gatland usually picks a bolter or two in his Six Nations squad but he has opted for the tried and proven as Wales look to become the first team to win the Six Nations three years in succession. Several players have bolted to England and France, seven in the squad of 32 Gatland announced via the Welsh Rugby Union's website on Tuesday with at least three more joining them next season. Gatland, who last month signed a new deal that will see him remain as Wales' head coach until the end of 2019, hopes the country's four regions will sign a new participation agreement with the WRU and stop the exodus. The regions and the WRU will meet on Wednesday to discuss an amended agreement drawn up by the governing body last week. It is believed to contain a provision for an increase in funding but one of the con ...

Lions’ triumph has boosted Wales Wales have not won a November Test since 2009, but former flyhalf Barry John believes the Six Nations champions will win three of their four matches this month. Since beating Argentina 33-16 in Cardiff, Wales have achieved the following results in end-of-year Tests: 2009 Lost 33-12 to Wallabies 2010 Lost 25-16 to Wallabies Lost 29-25 to Springboks Drew 16-16 with Fiji Lost 37-25 to All Blacks 2012 Lost 26-12 to Argentina Lost 26-19 to Samoa Lost 33-10 to All Blacks Lost 14-12 to Wallabies Since Warren Gatland was appointed Wales coach, they have lost 21 out of 22 matches against the Big Three Southern Hemisphere sides (their sole victory came against the Wallabies in 2008). However, a British & Irish Lions team stacked with Wales players, and coached by Gatland, won a series in Australia earlier this year, which John says will give Wales new belief going into this November campaign. 'The confidence is there now from the players who went on the Lions tour and starred in t ...
'No reason we can't beat Boks' 2013-11-04 Cape Town - Wales scrumhalf Mike Phillips says there's "no reason" why they can't go out and beat the Springboks in Cardiff on Saturday. The "Red Dragons" have improved markedly in recent years, winning two Grand Slams and three Six Nations titles since Warren Gatland took over as coach in 2008. However, their record against the three Southern Hemisphere powers - South Africa, New Zealand and Australia - remains dismal. They have suffered 22 defeats in 23 matches against the "Big Three" under Gatland with the sole victory coming against the Wallabies in 2008. Their overall record in Tests against South Africa is also poor, with the Boks holding a 24-1 winning record, with one match ending in a draw. However, Phillips is adamant that things will be different this time round, especially since they've come close to notching victories against the Boks in their last four outings. South Africa won 17-16 at the World Cup in New Zealand two years ago and in three Tests in ...
Today's Rugby News: England have released 10 players back to their Premiership clubs ahead of the first autumn international against Australia on 2 November. Wales' four rugby regions have backed the Anglo-French plan for a revamped European competition from next season. Five players at Premiership clubs tested positive for recreational drugs last season. Wales coach Warren Gatland says winning the 2014 Six Nations title is more important than being successful in next month's autumn internationals. Santiago Phelan has resigned as Argentina head coach after five and a half years in charge. Ulster prop John Afoa says he will use the international break to begin discussions on his future at Ravenhill. Connacht winger Matt Healy has penned a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the Irish province until the summer of 2016. Ulster back-row forward, Chris Henry, has marked his 29th birthday by signing a new three-year deal with the province to stay at Ravenhill until at least June 2017. New Zealand ...

NEWS: Gatland building for Six Nations - Wales coach Warren Gatland admits the Six Nations is more important to him than winning the autumn internationals.
Warren Gatland has selected 11 Welshmen in his squad to face the BarbariansWales will dominate the opening match of the 2013 British & Irish Lions with nine players selected to start against the Barbarians in Hong Kong. Centre pair Jamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies continue their winning Test partnership in midfield alongside Six Nations try hero Alex Cuthbert. Three Ospreys forwards will start at Hong Kong Stadium including front-row pair Adam Jones and Richard Hibbard as well as flanker Justin Tipuric who gets the nod after tour captain Sam Warburton was ruled out with a knee injury. Tipuric lines up between Newport Gwent Dragons pair Dan Lydiate and Toby Faletau in an all-Wales back-row in front of scrum-half Mike Phillips. The veteran Test number nine will provide crucial experience for half-back partner Owen Farrell who is joined by Saracens team-mate Mako Vunipola. Scotland's trio of tourists, Stuart Hogg, Sean Maitland and Richie Gray all start while 2009 captain Paul O'Connell will lead the team i ...

Lions XV British and Irish Lions head coach Warren Gatland will have been a busy man as the RBS Six Nations reached the midway point. While one eye will have undoubtedly been on the on-going action in the Super Rugby, Gatland's priority will have been on the performances of the home unions. And as one or two individuals play themselves out of contention for the tour to Australia, a number continue to stake strong claims. And once again, skysports.com's Tony Curtis puts himself into Gatland's shoes and names his Lions XV.

Great second half, awful and frustrating first half. Got no faith in Rob Howley - I'm sorry, he's a nice man I'm sure but he has as much authority as a paper tissue - he's only about 4ft 6 and weighs four stone!! Why on earth would North and Cuthbert 6ft 9 giants be scared and in awe of that!! Howley's as big as a gnat and sounds like one of the grannies on the Shreddies adverts. Honestly, he's no leader!!! Gut wrenching too, to see Warren Gatland sitting in the audience as a Lions boss - I'm sure the WRU are still paying him! He could have led us through the six nations and then worried about the Lions. He would have seen all the players thru the Six Nations anyway.
Rob Howley says Wales' coaching set-up was compromised when he and Warren Gatland shared the job in the autumn. Wales' interim coach is at the helm for the Six Nations, while Gatland is on British and Irish Lions duty ahead of the summer of 2013 tour to Australia. Howley coached Wales for the two opening defeats by Argentina and Samoa, while Gatland was in charge as they lost to New Zealand and Australia.
Sports News: Paul O'Connell seems unlikely to play again this season after admitting defeat in his efforts to avoid surgery on his injured back. Lions coach Warren Gatland is hoping the Scots will shine in the Six Nations so he can include them on next summer's tour of Australia. Daniel Hughes hit 51 not out as Syndey Sixers chased down a target of 133 to win the Big Bash League derby by 4 wickets against Sydney Thunder at Stadium Australia. Laura Robson started her new season with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Edina Gallovits-Hall at the Shenzhen Open in China.
