Doubts over Wales duo
25 January 2005 15:54pm
Two of Wales' most influential players now look certain to miss the RBS 6 Nations opener against England through injury.
Newcastle forward Charvis is suffering from a foot problem and faces at least another fortnight on the sidelines, while Cardiff Blues skipper Williams has disc trouble in his neck.
Wales coach Mike Ruddock has drafted Neath-Swansea Ospreys forward Richie Pugh into the Six Nations squad as cover for vice-captain Charvis, with Cardiff's Robin Sowden-Taylor also called up to train.
Wales have not beaten in England in Cardiff since 1993, but the probable loss of Charvis, especially, has dented their victory hopes.
