Wales call up replacement

6:24 am on 11 June 2012

Wales have called up the Melbourne Rebels loose forward Gareth Delve to replace No.8 Toby Faletau whose Australian tour is over after breaking his hand in Saturday night's 27-19 loss in Brisbane.

Delve won the last of his 11 Welsh caps in 2010 before joining the Rebels for their debut season in Super rugby.

Wales star winger George North will be undergoing intensive treatment on a haematoma to his thigh in a bid to get him fit for the second Test in Melbourne on Saturday.

In the meantime Wales play the Brumbies tomorrow in Canberra.
