Auckland - Wales have been forced to call up another injury replacement even before taking the field against New Zealand with scrumhalf Aled Davies arriving just ahead of the first Test after Lloyd Williams added to a growing list of injuries.

Scarlets scrumhalf Davies had already landed in New Zealand, a team spokesperson said on Saturday, just hours before the first Test against the All Blacks at Eden Park in Auckland.

Davies replaces Cardiff Blues' Williams who suffered an ankle injury in training and will not recover in time for the remaining games.

Wales have already required one replacement since arriving in New Zealand for the three-Test tour after Aaron Jarvis arrived on Wednesday after prop Paul James was sidelined by a calf injury.

And even before the tour began, Wales were forced to leave behind flankers Dan Lydiate and Justin Tipuric as well as wing Alex Cuthbert because of injuries.
