Howley explains Wales selection

Interim Wales coach Robert Howley explains his selection for their Six Nations opener against Ireland on Saturday.

Howley says debut-making lock Andrew Coombs will bring an "abrasive" approach.

He is also delighted at Adam Jones's return to fitness to take his place at tight-head prop and pleased there will be pressure on wing George North to perform well in the face of competition from Liam Williams and Eli Walker.
