Richard Hibbard injury blow for Wales and Ospreys
OSPREYS hooker Richard Hibbard has been ruled out for the rest of Wales's autumn series with a shoulder injury.
Hibbard was taken off during last Friday's 26-19 defeat to Samoa but his regional colleague Dan Biggar, who was also replaced after injuring his shoulder in that game, could still play a part in the remaining Tests.
Another Osprey, lock Ian Evans, is having his knee injury assessed by Welsh medical staff ahead of Saturday's match against New Zealand.
There is some good news, with Scarlets centre Jonathan Davies and hooker Matthew Rees expected to take a full part in training this week as they recover from groin and calf problems respectively.
Scarlets hooker Kirby Myhill and Blues lock Lou Reed — formerly of the Scarlets — have been added to the training squad.
They join Scarlets prop Samson Lee and Ospreys second row Lloyd Peers, who have already been drafted in to train with the Wales squad.
