Wales flanker Dan Lydiate has been ruled out of their final autumn series game against South Africa.

Warren Gatland's side are aiming for a first-ever autumn series clean sweep of victories, but Lydiate misses out because of an elbow injury.

That sees Cardiff Blues flanker Ellis Jenkins promoted from the bench to partner Justin Tipuric and number eight Ross Moriarty in the Wales back-row.

Dragons back-rower Aaron Wainwright is added to the replacements.

Lydiate started in the wins over Scotland and Australia alongside fellow Ospreys flanker Tipuric and Dragons number eight Moriarty.

The 30-year-old was rested for the 74-24 victory against Tonga when Wainwright started in the blind-side flanker role.
