Wales have confirmed that Alun Wyn Jones will be in camp with the team this week as the veteran continues his rehabilitation following a shoulder injury.
The Wales captain is expected to miss the entire Six Nations after picking up the injury in a 54-16 defeat by New Zealand in Cardiff in October.
However, having the world’s most-capped rugby player in the squad should give Wales a morale boost during the buildup to their fourth-round match at home to France on 11 March.
Reigning champions Wales are fifth on the Six Nations table following Saturday’s 23-19 defeat by England at Twickenham.
Rhys Priestland has returned to Cardiff after picking up an injury while Wales have released six players for regional action this weekend.
