Priestland: 'Gatland injury won't affect our preparations'

Rhys Priestland has offered his sympathies to Warren Gatland, following his accident earlier this week.

"It's a nasty injury. It happened to one of my friends and he was in a bit of pain" he said.

Speaking at Scarlets press conference earlier today, Priestland said plans for Wales' forthcoming matches wouldn't be thrown off course.

"He's got a lot of coaches here all year round... I'm sure it won't affect preparations for the Welsh squad all that much" he said.
