Louis Rees-Zammit set to miss Wales v England Six Nations clash in bombshell selection call

Louis Rees-Zammit is set to miss out on selection for Wales’ Six Nations clash with England after being dropped from Wayne Pivac’s starting line-up.

WalesOnline understands the winger will not be involved in the matchday 23 and, as a result, will be released back to his club Gloucester for their weekend clash with Premiership league leaders Leicester Tigers.

Any England-based players are required to return to their club sides if not involved in the matchday squad, as is the case with Rees-Zammit.

With Josh Adams having recovered from injury, it now seems likely that he will take his place in the side alongside winger Alex Cuthbert.

Despite the impressive performance of Ospreys winger Cuthbert against Scotland in his first Six Nations start in five years, this is still quite a selection bombshell from Wayne Pivac.

While Rees-Zammit hasn’t recently hit the heights he previously hit last year, his place in the squad had looked relatively assured until recently.

However, Pivac has seemingly seen fit to dispense with his services to deal with the threats of Eddie Jones’ England.
