Two new faces for Wales in November squad

by AAP

Wales coach Warren Gatland has named uncapped wingers Luke Morgan and Jonah Holmes in his 37-man squad for the November internationals against Scotland, Australia, Tonga and South Africa.

Morgan has been in good form for Ospreys with four tries in five matches while Holmes was picked on the back of strong displays for Leicester Tigers last season when he scored 10 tries in 11 games.

"This autumn is the start of a 12-month countdown to the Rugby World Cup and it is a huge opportunity for the players," Gatland said/

"The players who performed and represented Wales so well in the summer deserve the opportunity again and we are really pleased with the depth we have built across the squad.

"The two uncapped players in Luke and Jonah are both form, back-three players and we are looking forward to seeing them in this environment."

Gatland, who will step down after next year's World Cup, is keen for Wales to build momentum ahead of the tournament in Japan as he looks to end his 12-year stint in charge on a high.

Wales kick off their autumn internationals against Scotland on November. 3 at the Principality Stadium.

Australia takes on Wales on November 10 in Cardiff, kicking off on Sunday November 11 AEDT, LIVE on beIN SPORTS.
