Howley explains Delve call-up

Caretaker coach Rob Howley says the surprise call-up of Gareth Delve to face the Brumbies on Tuesday, more than two years after his last Wales appearance, makes sense because of fellow number eight Toby Faletau's broken hand.

Delve has impressed playing Super 15 rugby in Australia this season for Melbourne Rebels, although the former Gloucester and Bath back-row has been linked with a move to Toulon in France.

Wales lost the first Test 27-19 to Australia in Brisbane last weekend and have a midweek fixture against the Brumbies before going to Melbourne on 16 June for the second Test.
