Taulupe Faletau has been ruled out of the Rugby World Cup in Japan with a collarbone injury.

Wales have suffered a major injury blow with No 8 Taulupe Faletau ruled out of this year’s Rugby World Cup after suffering a collarbone injury “in an innocuous training ground incident”, the Welsh Rugby Union said on Thursday (Friday NZT).

Faletau played all three tests for the British and Irish Lions in the drawn series with the All Blacks in 2017, but the 28-year-old has struggled with injuries since.

Taulupe Faletau was a star for the British and Irish Lions in their drawn series with the All Blacks in 2017.

His last test for Wales was during the 2018 Six Nations. He then missed last year’s November tests with a broken arm and he fractured it again in January, ruling him out of the Six Nations which Wales went on to win, achieving a grand slam in Warren Gatland’s final season as coach ahead of the World Cup starting in Japan in September.
