Wales release trio to clubs

Wales have released Ryan Bevington, Emyr Phillps and Samson Lee back to their clubs for this weekend's RaboDirect PRO12 games.

Wales continue their bid for an unprecedented third straight Six Nations title against Ireland in Dublin this weekend, and the trio will not be required.

Ospreys prop Bevington went on as a late substitute in the 23-15 victory over Italy last Saturday.

The Ospreys face Ulster in Belfast on Friday night, while the Scarlets will have Phillips and Lee available for the visit of Treviso on Saturday.

The Welsh Rugby Union said all three players will link back up with the national squad early next week.
