TOKYO, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Winger Owen Lane has been called
up into the Wales squad as an injury replacement for loose
forward Josh Navidi ahead of the Rugby World Cup semi-final
against South Africa, the Welsh Rugby Union said on Tuesday.
Number eight Navidi injured his hamstring in the
quarter-final victory over France on Sunday and was ruled out
for the rest of the tournament on Monday.
Lane can play on the wing or in the centres, where Wales
have a number of injury concerns after Jonathan Davies missed
the France match with a knee injury and with Hadleigh Parkes
nursing shoulder and finger problems.
The 21-year-old Cardiff Blues back made his test debut
against Ireland in Cardiff in late August, scoring Wales's first
try in the 22-17 loss. He will arrive in Japan on Tuesday in
plenty of time for Sunday's match.
