Williams: Injury setback

Sky Bet

Wales winger Shane Williams will miss the two-Test tour to New Zealand through injury.

The Ospreys ace, who withdrew from the squad to tackle South Africa on Saturday, has been struggling with shoulder problems.

Williams will now be replaced by Newport Gwent Dragons wing Will Harries for the trip to face the All Blacks.

And Wales backs coach Rob Howley is confident the uncapped Harries can shine on the tour.

"Will has been going extremely well in training and he is a real young talent, one of the uncapped players to be making the trip and he will hopefully learn a lot and continue to put pressure on the rest of the back three," said Howley.
