Rugby news - Scott Williams released from Wales Six Nations squad
Wales have released centre Scott Williams from their squad for the remainder of the Six Nations as he battles a back injury.
The experienced midfield player missed the November internationals with a hamstring tear and sat out the opening two rounds of the Six Nations with an ankle problem.
"Scott Williams has been released from the 2019 Six Nations squad to continue rehabilitation of his back injury at his region," a statement from Welsh Rugby said on Wednesday.
"It is felt that his injury will preclude him from taking a competitive part in the competition."
They are next in action against England in Cardiff in what is a potential title decider on Feb. 23.
