Double blow for Wales

Wales suffered a double injury blow ahead of today's Millennium Stadium clash against world champions South Africa.

Prop Gethin Jenkins failed a late fitness test on a calf muscle problem, and will be replaced by Paul James, with John Yapp providing bench cover.

Flanker Dan Lydiate was the second casualty, missing out because of an ankle injury. His place at blindside will be filled by Wasps' Andy Powell.
