Wales will miss the services of Scarlets scrum-half Kieran Hardy for the remainder of the Six Nations tournament following a hamstring injury.

Hardy, who was one of the try-scorer for Wales during the 40-24 win over England was replaced in the 65th minute when he suffered the blow.

A statement released by the Welsh Rugby Union confirmed that the 25-year-old has been released from the squad and will continue his recovery with his club Scarlets.

“Kieran has been released from the squad due to a hamstring injury suffered in the game versus England on Saturday,” the WRU said.

“He will continue his rehabilitation back at the Scarlets.”

Hardy, who made his Wales debut during the Autumn Nations Cup last year has played four Tests including two in the Six Nations this year.

Wales are at the top of the Six Nations table with wins in all their three matches and will take on Italy and France in the final two rounds on 13th and 20th March respectively.
