Harlequins centre Jamie Roberts has been called into Wales' autumn Test squad as injury cover.

Roberts, who has won 93 caps, missed out on a place in the original 36-man party announced by Wales head coach Warren Gatland last month.

But he has now reported for duty at Wales' training base, along with another call-up in Cardiff Blues prop Scott Andrews, who is currently on loan with Aviva Premiership club Bath.

Wales are awaiting an update on star centre Jonathan Davies' fitness for the rest of their autumn campaign after he was injured during Saturday's 29-21 defeat against Australia.

Davies was helped from the Principality Stadium pitch after suffering a suspected ankle injury during the dying seconds.

Coleman's future as Wales manager still unconfirmed

Chris Coleman says he has "no idea" if he will continue as Wales manager after holding initial talks about staying in the job.

Coleman's current contract ends at the end of November after this month's friendlies against France and Panama.

The 47-year-old's position has been under scrutiny since last month's defeat to the Republic of Ireland cost them a place at the 2018 World Cup next summer.

"I have no idea if these are my last games," Coleman told a press conference near Cardiff.

"Initial talks have been undertaken since our last game, but we are no further forward. That's where we are."

A players' delegation - including star man Gareth Bale and skipper Ashley Williams - met Coleman straight after the defeat to Ireland in attempt to persuade him to stay.

"France in Paris is a fantastic game for us and if this is my last camp it's not a bad way to sign off," Coleman said.

"I have to look and think, 'Can I take it forward? Is the structure and facilities good to take us forward?' So it's not just me personally.

"To maintain that or take it on, the next step is even tougher and it means we need to do things a bit differently. Maybe not all parties will agree but that's my take."
