Wales confirm squad for the 2018 November Internationals

Welsh Rugby Union has today confirmed a 37-man squad for the 2018 November Internationals.


Ospreys wing and Wales Sevens' all-time leading points and try scorer Luke Morgan and Leicester Tigers' Jonah Holmes both receive a first call-up to the Wales squad.



Wales welcome back eight British & Irish Lions to the squad which recorded three test victories against South Africa and Argentina in the summer.



Scarlets duo Rob Evans and Wyn Jones feature with Nicky Smith as the loose-head options for Wales with Ken Owens returning to the squad alongside Elliot Dee and Ryan Elias as the hookers. 

Leon Brown, who made his international debut last autumn, returns to the squad and is named along with Tomas Francis, Samson Lee and Dillon Lewis who all toured with Wales in the summer.

Captain Alun Wyn Jones returns as does Jake Ball who hasn't featured for Wales since the 2017 Under Armour series due to injury. Adam Beard, Bradley Davies and Cory Hill are the other second-rows named.
