Wales scrum-half Kieran Hardy has been ruled out of the rest of the Six Nations after damaging a hamstring in the Triple Crown win against England.

Hardy scored a try before limping off at the Principality Stadium in the second half of the 40-24 victory.

Scarlets’ scrum-half Gareth Davies came on as replacement nine against England.

And Wales are hoping Cardiff Blues’ Tomos Williams will be fit again after suffering a hamstring injury in the opening victory against Ireland.

Lloyd Williams was called into the squad as cover for namesake and fellow Cardiff Blues player Tomos.

Wales clinched the Triple Crown with victory over England and can win the Grand Slam by defeating Italy in Rome on 13 March and France in Paris seven days later.
