Wales scrum-half Lloyd Williams and prop Paul James to return home

Scrum-half Lloyd Williams and prop Paul James will return home from the Wales tour of New Zealand without playing a game after the first Test in Auckland on Saturday.

Scarlets scrum-half Aled Davies has already arrived in Auckland to replace Williams, who injured his ankle in training, while Ospreys prop Aaron Jarvis arrived to provide cover for James, who is struggling with a calf strain, on Wednesday.

Both are expected to be involved in Tuesday night's game against the Chiefs in Hamilton.

Wales play the All Blacks in Wellington and Dunedin over the next two weekends to complete their three Test series.
