Liam Williams and Ellis Jenkins have questions about their fitness ahead of the Wales All Blacks game on Saturday, further reducing Wayne Pivac’s resources.

Already without the seven he chose to play in the English Premiership, blocked as this match is played outside the test window, as well as the injured Justin Tipuric, George North and Josh Navidi, Wales is to the bone.

Lion Williams recently had his appendix removed, making him unlikely to play New Zealand this Saturday.

“Liam is training on his back, which is great,” attacking coach Stephen Jones said.

“He hasn’t had many sessions this season, so we are trying to improve him with each session.

To be fair, we are fully aware that it would be a huge request from Liam (to be fit), but he is doing his best to be available.

“He is working very hard because he wants to play and he wants to show it. But we as fitness trainers and trainers understand where it is.

“It’s important for us to remember that we have more games in November, so we have to be smart about how we use Liam.”

Flanker Jenkins, who has not played for Wales for three years after a horrific knee injury in 2018, is also wary of a rib problem.

WALES FALL ACCESSORIES

New Zealand (H) – October 30 at 5.15 p.m.

South Africa (H) – November 6, 5.30 p.m.

Fiji (H) – November 14 at 3.15 p.m.

Australia (H) – November 20, 5.30 pm

“He will be training today, but it’s a matter of ticking several boxes as the week progresses, running with the team, the contact element,” added Jones, who has yet to completely rule out Cardiff No. 7.

If Jenkins doesn’t make the cut this week, it will mean Taine Basham is in line for his fourth international game after making his debut in the summer; could form a backline of dragons with Ross Moriarty and Aaron Wainwright.

“If you look at Taine and the way he’s played for the Dragons this year and the way he’s improved and worked hard on his game, he deserves a lot of credit,” Jones said.

He is a young man who improves every week. Whoever plays at seven will certainly love the challenge and accept it. ”

Wales have not beaten New Zealand since 1953 and enter the game without many front-line players, but Jones is not worried.

“From my perspective, I am very confident and comfortable with what we have in the playing group,” said the former fly-half.

“We have a lot of experience, a lot of talent and there will be opportunities for the players, which is what you want, and you want your players to make the most of those opportunities.

“I really enjoyed playing New Zealand every time. You set your standards and want to be the best. That’s what the game is about. ”
