Posted by

Welsh winger Josh Adams has been left out of the Six Nations opener against Ireland and their following game against Scotland due to leaving the Welsh camp and attending a family do. We all know how serious and how tough it is for everyone with the Covid situation, but this has to the right call to avoid any spread of the virus.

Wales head coach Wayne Pivac said: “We are extremely disappointed with the breach and have acted robustly and swiftly to take all appropriate measures.

“All players and management have received detailed briefings and education regarding our protocols, and everyone has a responsibility to abide by the rules.

“On this occasion, Josh has made an error of judgement, he made a mistake and he has shown immediate remorse.

“He was present at a small, immediate family gathering to celebrate a milestone with those close to him, but that is against the rules and action had to be taken.”
