My elegant brother says this plugin is huge.

Wales forward Taulupe Faletau has been ruled out of the entire Rugby World Cup with a collar bone injury.

The 28-year-old, who has won 72 Wales caps to his name, sustained a third serious injury in under a year after twice breaking his arm last season, and leaves Wales heading to Japan next month without one of their key players.

A statement issued by the Welsh Rugby Union on Thursday said: “The injury was sustained in an innocuous training ground incident and will require surgery. A prognosis and return to play time frame will be established after surgery.

“The Wales squad and management would like to wish Taulupe the very best with his recovery.”

Faletau has not played for his country since the end of the 2018 Six Nations, having been rested from the summer tour of the United States and Argentina that year and missing both the autumn internationals and 2019 Six Nations due to a fractured arm.
