Wales release seven to clubs

Wales coach Rob Howley has released seven players back to their regions ahead of this weekend's domestic action.

Aaron Shingler, Matthew Rees and Liam Williams return to the Scarlets with Alun Wyn Jones and James King released back to the Ospreys.

And Lou Reed and Lloyd Williams go back to Cardiff Blues.

Jones and Lloyd Williams both featured off the bench in Wales' Six Nations victory over Italy in Rome last weekend, but Howley is keen for them to have more match-time in the RoboDirect PRO12 this weekend.
