Gerald Davies commented "We are delighted that Leigh has rejoined the group, having seen the medical team this morning they have confirmed that he has arrived fully fit and so is available for selection following tomorrow night's game against the Golden Lions".
Halfpenny added "It's just great to be back with the team. I've been working really hard with the Cardiff medical team and they have got me back to full fitness so I am raring to go for the Lions. Also as the youngest player on tour I now have responsibility for Lenny the Lion, so Keith (Earls) officially handed over custody as soon as I walked into the Team Room!".
