Gavin Henson has been withdrawn from the Wales squad which travels to Scotland this afternoon (Friday, 6 February) in preparation for the opening match of their RBS 6 Nations title defence at Murrayfield on Sunday.
The Ospreys centre has failed to recover from a calf strain and is to be replaced in the starting line-up by Tom Shanklin, who slots in at outside centre with his Cardiff Blues team-mate Jamie Roberts reverting to the number 12 position. Another Ospreys centre, Andrew Bishop, takes up the spot vacated by Shanklin on the bench.
Henson's injury will be re-assessed next week and no further information will be available until that time.
The annual Women's club launch was held at the Wales Centre of Excellence where National Women's Head Coach and Programme Lead Rhys Edwards, Competition Secretary Adrian Howell and Cardiff Met player Ffion Jones express eagerness for the new campaign to get under way.
