Wales have named 52 players to prepare for the Wales Senior Trial on May 30th. The Probables will be captained by Alun Wyn Jones, while Matthew Rees will lead out the Possibles.
The biggest news, however, is the presence of Gavin Henson in the Probables squad. Wales have several injury issues in the centres, but Henson has still beaten out the likes of Cory Allen and James Hook, both of whom find themselves in the Possibles.
There are two uncapped players in the Probables, in Dragons prop Owen Evans and Ospreys’ back Sam Davies.
Elsewhere Leicester Tigers’ promising young fly-half Owen Williams is included in the Possibles, as is Bristol-bound mercurial utility back Matthew Morgan. Joining them in the squad are several names that have featured regularly in the national squad in recent times, including Paul James, Bradley Davies and Ian Evans.
