Wales begin the defence of their Six Nations crown on 2 February, against Ireland in Cardiff. Rob Howley has been robbed of the likes of Alun Wyn Jones, Luke Charteris and Rhys Priestland through injury, but says he's chosen 'a very experienced squad' alongside players in form for the regions.
'We have put together a very experienced squad and complimented that by rewarding the in-form players with a call-up,' Howley said. 'The players in the squad have been playing really well and we have been pleased with their individual performances.'
'We have a group of players who know how to win big matches and have experienced success. We are adding to that, players who have stood out and performed well for the regions this season.'
