The full Warren Gatland Q&A: Wales coach defends decision to play England and says 'it's not about money'
Wales have named a 31-man squad for their forthcoming three-test summer tour.

Cory Hill and Ellis Jenkins have been named co-captains with Cardiff Blues scrum-half Tomos Williams the sole uncapped player.

Wales will head to the Americas at the end of the month and will face the Springboks in their first test in Washington D.C on June 2nd. They will then travel south to Argentina for two tests against the Pumas on June 9th (San Juan) and June 16th (Santa Fe).

"This summer is a great opportunity for this squad to build on their experience, get test match game time under their belt and face Rugby Championship opposition," said Wales head coach Warren Gatland.

"We have picked a squad of 31 to try and give players as much game time as possible. It shows the depth we have built in recent years that we have just one uncapped player in the squad in Tomos, but he has been in a number of squads so knows the environment well.

"We have picked Cory and Ellis as co-captains, they are both leaders and have experience captaining at regional level so this is an opportunity for them to build on that.

"This summer is another step on our 2019 RWC path and a great opportunity to build on recent campaigns."

Assuming Shingler is out, who replaces him. Also assuming it won’t be Thomas Young or anyone England based, so maybe a fit again Dan Lydiate or Sam Cross.
