Cory Hill ‘possibly’ out of the World Cup – Gatland

Wales lock Cory Hill is “possibly” out of the World Cup through injury according Wales coach Warren Gatland.

The Dragons player has not played since February after suffering an ankle injury during Wales’ Six Nations victory over England.

Gatland selected Hill as part of the World Cup squad despite still being injured, but he was expected to be fit for Wales’ second match against Australia.

However, after the Georgia match on Monday morning, Gatland was asked whether Hill was out of the World Cup, to which he replied: “possibly”.

There was further concern as Gatland also confirmed that Hadleigh Parkes had sustained an injury during Wales’ first Pool D match.

We got a few guys who are a bit sore and battered as you’d expect after an international but nothing of a major concern.

Hadleigh Parkes has got a little bit a bone fracture in his hand but they think he will be OK having to pad that up, but it should be an issue for selection next week.
