    A dream test match against his country of birth has been scuppered for Willis Halaholo

    A dream test match against his country of birth has been scuppered for Willis Halaholo


    The former Counties-Manukau midfielder and now Welsh international has been withdrawn from Wayne Pivac's squad to face the All Blacks in Cardiff on Sunday morning after testing positive for Covid-19.

    Halaholo's taken to social media to express his anguish.

    At this stage there's no concern of the test not going ahead.

    Halaholo will self isolate away from the Wales camp for the next 10 days.

    He's been replaced by Scott Williams.
