CARDIFF (Reuters) - Wales lock Cory Hill has been ruled out of the rest of this year’s Six Nations after suffering an ankle injury in Saturday’s win over England, the Welsh Rugby Union said on Tuesday.

Hill, 27, scored a crucial try in the second half of the 21-13 victory at the Principality Stadium before limping off in the closing stages.

The WRU said Hill would not play against either Scotland at Murrayfield on March 9 or against Ireland in Cardiff on March 16, the unbeaten Wales team’s final two fixtures of the competition.
