Josh Navidi returns to the Wales squad for their final two Six Nations matches against France and Italy

Josh Navidi has been added to the Wales squad for the remainder of the Six Nations.

The British and Irish Lions flanker required shoulder surgery after being forced off eight minutes after Cardiff’s Rugby League game against the Bulls in October. But the 31-year-old returned to action in Friday night’s loss to Ulster, playing the full 80 minutes in Belfast.

Navidi’s addition to the squad comes ahead of Wales’ home clash with Grand Slam chasing France on Friday. Wales currently sit fifth in the Six Nations table and will host Italy in Cardiff for their closing game.
