Wales have called up the uncapped Josh Navidi as well as Adam Warren for their tour of Japan this June.

Cardiff Blues flanker Navidi and Scarlets centre Warren have been called into Wales’ squad after Aaron Shingler and Ashley Beck were ruled out due to injury.

Shingler has failed to recover from a foot injury to take his place in the squad whilst Beck has picked up a groin injury.

Former Wales Under-20 captain Navidi, who was part Wales’ Six Nations and Japan tour training squads, replaces Shingler.

Carmarthen born Warren, who made his international debut last summer against the Barbarians at the Millennium Stadium, has been training with the squad in recent weeks and comes in for Beck.

Wales begin their two-Test trip of Japan with the first game on June 8 followed by the second Test on June 15.
