Gatland to name Wales Six Nations squad

Warren Gatland will announce his squad for this year's Six Nations tournament later today.

The side play the competition's first match at home to England on February the 6th. They will then go on to play France, Ireland, Scotland and Italy.

After the squad's success against South Africa in the autumn internationals, Gatland is expected to turn to a familiar set of faces to make up the bulk of the team.

There could well be opportunities however for up and coming talent who have impressed in recent Pro-12 and European cup matches.

Scarlets prop Rob Evans is one outsider likely to be selected. Evans was called up for the Wales squad during the autumn internationals, but never ran out on the pitch.

Ospreys prop Nicky Smith is yet to return to playing after injury, leaving a spot in the front row open.

Prop Jones, 33, was flashed by a speed camera as he broke the limit in his Mercedes E220. The Wales and British Lions star was doing 36mph in a 30mph zone on his way to a tailors.

The Cardiff Blues player already had nine points on his licence. He appealed not to have his licence taken away because it would place a strain on his wife and parents who would have to give him lifts.

The court heard that if he is picked for Wales for the 2015 Six Nations campaign he will have to go to training camps at "all hours of the day". Jones, who lives in Merthyr Tydfil, drives up to 30,000 miles a year for games and training.

Jones admitted speeding on the A4109 road in June last year. The tight head prop had already been caught speeding three times during the past two years. Magistrates banned him from driving for six months - saying that he was wealthy enough to be able to afford his own private chauffeur.

Gomis, who joined the club on a free transfer from Lyon last summer, grew frustrated over a lack of playing time during the first half of the season. Although Bony's exit to Manchester City should open the door for him to become first choice, Gomis indicated he feels let down by the Swans and is considering his options.

When Bony was here, it was expected that I would also play in a certain number of games, but that was not the case," the France international told Canal Plus. At my age, it is difficult to spend my time sitting on the bench

– Bafetibis Gomis

Gomis - who has made 19 league appearances for Swansea, 13 of them as a substitute - said he and his representatives planned to hold talks with Swansea before making any decision but the 29-year-old may not easily be persuaded if he feels promises have already been broken. "I have been approached by clubs," he added.

Despite impressive form in the Pro12, the side who had not lost at home at the Liberty all season struggled against the visitors from the start, with a series of errors gifting Northampton points. Both tries scored by Clark and North were the result of a charge down and a dropped ball respectively.

Osprey's only points of the match came through three Dan Biggar penalties and despite late pressure, the away side held on to win.
