Full-back Lee Byrne has admitted he is "gutted" at not being included in Wales' squad for the autumn internationals - and said the squad was "obviously... picked on blooding players for [the World Cup in 2015] not on form or playing ability."
The 33-year-old was named in Warren Gatland's Six Nations squad in the spring, but failed to feature in any of the games.
Byrne has fallen out of favour since moving to French club side Clermont Auvergne in the summer 2011.
He took to Twitter again to defend his first comments - saying he was "not hitting out at anybody especially not Gatland", just putting forward his "opinion on how selection might have been prioritised."
