Alun Wyn Jones released back to the Ospreys
WALES have released Alun Wyn Jones back to the Ospreys for the important Pro12 match with Munster in Limerick on Saturday evening.
The second row will look to top up his match fitness ahead of selection for the Six Nations encounter with Scotland at Murrayfield on March 9.
Rob Howley has also made James King available for the Munster game, but Ryan Bevington has been kept with the national squad as Paul James is set for club duty with Bath and Gethin Jenkins is carrying an injury.
The Ospreys will travel to Ireland knowing they can't afford to drop many more points if they are to finish in the top four of the Pro12 and make the play-offs.
Aaron Shingler, Matthew Rees and Liam Williams have been allowed to return to the Scarlets for their home game with Edinburgh on Friday evening, with Lou Reed and Lloyd Williams free to play for the Blues in Glasgow.
