Rugby: Wales wing Adams ruled out of rest of Six Nations

CARDIFF: Wales's faltering defence of their Six Nations title suffered another blow on Tuesday (Feb 25) with wing Josh Adams being ruled out of their remaining two matches.

The 24-year-old Cardiff Blues star suffered an ankle injury in last Saturday's thrilling 27-23 defeat by France.

"Josh Adams will play no further part in the 2020 Six Nations following an ankle injury sustained in the match against France," read a statement by the Wales Rugby Union (WRU).

"He is due to have surgery this week and it is envisaged that he could return in 12 weeks for the latter stages of the PRO14."

Wayne Pivac's side have just one victory from their three games thusfar.

Hopes of a repeat of the Grand Slam were ended by Ireland earlier this month and then their title chances took a hit by les Bleus.
