INJURY UPDATE: Wing Alex Cuthbert has been ruled out of the second Test of Wales' tour after suffering a shoulder ligament injury against Tonga at Eden Park.

Cuthbert, who played an influential part in the 24-6 victory, including scoring the opening try, is set to be sidelined for up to six weeks. 

"Alex has been in excellent form leading into this tour and it was there for all to see at Eden Park on Friday. So it's a shame he's had to leave us at this juncture.

"He's also been a great influence off the field with the younger players in the squad. I know he'll work hard now to be back in action for Cardiff Blues' pre-season," Wales head coach Robin McBryde said.

Wales will be making no call-ups at this point as they prepare to face Samoa in Apia on Friday, June 23.
