Cardiff - Prop Gethin Jenkins will be the only Wales player to miss the start of a Six Nations training camp in Poland after hurting his knee playing for his club on Sunday.

Jenkins was injured in the Cardiff Blues' Heineken Cup win over Racing Metro but the Welsh Rugby Union says he may link up with the rest of the 35-man squad later this week.

Flyhalf Rhys Priestland and flanker Dan Lydiate both flew with the squad to Gdansk on Monday despite being injured at the weekend.

The WRU says "both players will train in Poland whilst managing their injuries."

Wales have already lost forwards Luke Charteris, Alun-Wyn Jones and Lloyd Burns to injury, but the WRU says center Jamie Roberts is "progressing well" in his recovery from a knee problem.
