The Wales squad for the 2019 World Cup squad has been named with Scarlets Rhys Patchell, who impressed in the closing stages against Ireland yesterday, getting the nod ahead of Cardiff's Jarrod Evans. 

Props Rob Evans, Samson Lee and centre Scott Williams all miss out. 

Second row forward Cory Hill has been included despite reports of a small fracture in his leg.  

Coach Warren Gatland leads Wales into his third World Cup having been appointed coach in November 2007. The coach admitted he choked up slightly in advance of yesterday's loss to Ireland, his last match in charge at the Principality Stadium.
