Parker ruled out
23 February 2004 19:42pm
Wales centre Sonny Parker has been ruled out of the rest of the RBS 6 Nations Championship after breaking his thumb in Sunday's defeat by Ireland.
Wales coach Steve Hansen said: "It's a blow for Sonny after his broken arm but he is going to have to do what Kevin Morgan has done so often and keep bouncing back.
"Hopefully, sooner or later he will have a run with no injuries. Other than Sonny, everyone is okay."
Tom Shanklin may be the natural replacement for Parker - he came on for the injured centre and promptly scored two tries in Dublin.
Other options are moving Gareth Thomas from full-back to his preferred centre role, or recalling one of the Lions duo of Dafydd James and Mark Taylor.
