Wales release front-row trio

Wales have released three members of their RBS 6 Nations squad back to the regions for RaboDirect PRO12 games this weekend.

Ospreys prop Ryan Bevington, who went on as a late substitute in the 23-15 victory over Italy last Saturday, will go back, together with Scarlets front-row forwards Emyr Phillips and Samson Lee.

The Ospreys face Ulster in Belfast on Friday night, while the Scarlets visit Treviso on Saturday.

The Welsh Rugby Union said all three players will link back up with the national squad early next week.

Wales, seeking an unprecedented Six Nations title hat-trick this season, continue their campaign against Ireland in Dublin on Saturday.
