Wales receive major boost ahead of Six Nations

Newly appointed Wales boss Wayne Pivac received a boost ahead of the Six Nations tournament as Rhys Webb is available for selection.
The Welsh Rugby Union confirmed that Webb will be eligible for selection for the 2020 Six Nations tournament after Top 14 side Toulon agreed to release the star early from his contract for family reasons.
“Following the 31-times capped scrumhalf’s contractual commitment to return to play his club rugby in Wales with the Ospreys next season, the Professional Rugby Board has agreed to an application from the player and his representative to allow a six-month dispensation from the Senior Player Selection Policy, during which new Wales head coach Wayne Pivac can consider Webb for selection,” the WRU said in a statement.
“In accordance with Wales’ Senior Player Selection Policy, the 31-year-old British and Irish Lion was originally only eligible for international selection from July 1.
“However, the dispensation granted by the PRB enables Webb to compete for a place in Pivac’s first campaign in charge of Wales, starting at Principality Stadium against Italy on February 1.”
