Wales lock Cory Hill is doubtful for the upcoming World Cup campaign in Japan following a fracture on his leg.

The 27-year-old has been sidelined since the Six Nations tournament earlier in February and Gatland revealed that a decision on the Dragons forward will be taken ahead of the World Cup squad announcement.

"Our big discussion tonight is with Cory Hill, he has got a fracture in his leg," Gatland said.

"It is a very small fracture which could keep him out until game two or three (of the World Cup) so that will be a big discussion on whether we take him or not."

Hill has played 24 Tests since making his debut in 2016 and has scored three tries. He also went on to captain Wales in two Tests during their summer tour of Argentina last year.

Wales are grouped in Pool D along with Australia, Georgia, Fiji and Uruguay in the upcoming World Cup that kicks-off on 20th September in Tokyo.
