Rob Howley has named his squad for the three test tour of Australia this June along with Neil Jenkins and Robin McBryde, lead by captain Sam Warburton. Injuries have meant that Wales will be without star centre Jamie Roberts for the tour but the return of Warburton is a timely boost ahead of what many see as a crucial series in Wales’ development building up to the Rugby World Cup in 2015.
Head coach Warren Gatland, who is still recuperating from injuries sustained in a fall at his home in New Zealand, is expected to link up for the squad in the middle of the series.

Ryan BEVINGTON, Luke CHARTERIS, Bradley DAVIES, Ian EVANS, Toby FALETAU, Rhys GILL, Richard HIBBARD, Paul JAMES, Gethin JENKINS, Adam JONES, Alun Wyn JONES, Rhodri JONES, Ryan JONES, Dan LYDIATE, Ken OWENS, Matthew REES, Aaron SHINGLER, Justin TIPURIC, Josh TURNBULL, Sam WARBURTON, Martyn WILLIAMS
