    Captain Jones out of England game
    </div>












    Wales captain Stephen Jones has been ruled out of Saturday's RBS Six
    Nations game with England in Cardiff, with Gareth Thomas taking over as
    skipper.






    Jones has a fractured
    wrist bone that will keep him out for up to three weeks, making him a
    doubt for the Scarlets' Heineken Cup quarter-final.






    James Hook moves from inside centre to Jones' fly-half spot, Thomas at 12.











    Ceri Sweeney takes Thomas's place on the bench in the only other change to the 22 that lost to Italy last weekend.

        <DIV>Wales will be better with Hook at 10.</DIV>
        <DIV>Decent news for Munster although I'd have preferred Peel to be missing as Jones is a bit s**t lately.</DIV>

          Hopefully he will be out, especially as we will be missing POC.


          Ironic though considering he was under pressure from Hook. Might be an even unluckier break.

            Wales
            captain and fly-half Stephen Jones has been forced to withdraw from
            Saturday's Six Nations clash with England in Cardiff after suffering a
            fractured bone in his wrist.




            Gareth Thomas comes into the starting line-up at inside centre and
            takes over as Wales skipper, with James Hook moving to the fly-half
            position.



            Jones had been named in the Wales team on Tuesday after recovering
            from a blow to the head he suffered in the 23-20 defeat to Italy last
            weekend.



            He also damaged his wrist in Rome but was passed fit to start until he aggravated the injury in training.



            X-rays on Tuesday night revealed he had suffered a fracture.



            "Stephen has been nothing short of inspirational in camp over the
            last few days and this is by no means ideal preparation for what is an
            important week for us all," said Wales head coach Gareth Jenkins.



            "However we are all confident James Hook will be able to change
            position and meet the challenge presented to him and Alfie's (Thomas)
            inclusion has positive implications both psychologically and for rugby
            reasons.



            "We are in the privileged position of being able to call upon a
            player of his immense captaincy pedigree, rugby history and leadership
            talents to fill the void left by Stephen's injury."



            Jones is expected to be out for up to three weeks, which also makes
            him a doubt for the Llanelli Scarlets' Heineken Cup quarter-final
            against Munster on March 30.

              16 days to go. His passing has to be affected. Even if he does make it his preparation will be badly hampered. Cieron Thomas looks like the likely replacement.

                  Wales captain Stephen Jones has been forced to withdraw from Saturday's RBS 6 Nations Championship clash with England after suffering a fractured bone in his wrist.

                  Gareth Thomas comes into the starting XV at inside centre and takes over as captain, with James Hook moving to fly-half.

                  Jones was named in the Wales team yesterday after recovering from a blow to the head he suffered in the 23-20 defeat to Italy last weekend.

                  He also damaged his wrist in Rome but was passed fit to start until he aggravated the injury in training yesterday.

                  <NO></NO>@@@@SPAN id=rugby_story2>Jenkins decided to replace Thomas as captain and appointed Jones in the build-up to the autumn international series.

                  Jenkins added: "It is a credit to him (Thomas) that he responded so positively to his country's call when asked to do the job.

                  "This is an important weekend for Welsh rugby and Alfie has the capacity to come into the captaincy role and lift everyone. He was the natural candidate to fill in as captain for this game once we realised Stephen was not going to make it."

                  Wales physio Mark Davies claimed Jones had returned to training because he had recovered sufficiently from the eye and wrist injuries sustained against Italy in Rome.

                  "He was made available for selection before aggravating the problem in training," said Davies.

                  "A scan revealed an uncommon injury in the form of a break to a small bone in his right wrist, which limits his ability to function.

                  "As a result the wrist will be put in a splint and immobilised for the next two to three weeks. The problem doesn't require surgery."

                  With Thomas now in the starting XV, Ceri Sweeney has been promoted onto the bench.

                        Possibly good news for Wales, bad news for Scarlets.

                        I've a lot of respect for Jones, but he hasn't been on top form lately. Hook is certainly the form player of the moment.

                          Weren't the team calling him Captain Crap last week? That's got to do wonders for your confidence, if nothing else!

                            Scarlets Director of Rugby Phil Davies remains hopeful Wales captain Stephen Jones will be available for the Heineken Cup quarter-final showdown against Munster.
                            Jones has been forced out of this weekend’s Six Nations clash against England due to a fractured bone in his wrist.
                            The injury is expected to keep him out for up to three weeks and with the Munster clash just over two weeks away, the fly-half’s recovery powers will be tested to the limit.
                            “We have been in dialogue with the Welsh Rugby Union and we obviously have Stephen’s best interests in mind,” explained Davies. “But we definitely haven’t ruled him out for the Munster game and are monitoring the situation closely.”@@@@/SPAN> </DIV></DIV></DIV>

                              That is bound to disrupt the Scarlets preparation if nothing else.
