Gatland's injury crisis deepens

Wales prop Duncan Jones is facing a race against time to be fit for the Six Nations as Warren Gatland's injury crisis deepens.

Jones - who signed a new three-year deal with Ospreys this week - has broken a bone in his foot and will miss the Heineken Cup clash with Viadana.

Ospreys and Wales are already without the services of Ryan Jones, Shane Williams, Mike Phillips and Lee Byrne with the 31-year-old the latest to be ruled out.

Gatland's autumn campaign was plagued by injuries at tight-head which saw Paul James - who replaced Jones against Viadana - play in last month's Tests.

Fellow tight-head contenders Scarlet Rhys Thomas (foot) and Cardiff Blue John Yapp (bicep), remain on the sidelines.

Byrne and Phillips are still recovering from foot injuries and with Jones the latest onto the treatment table Gatland's Six Nations preparations have been further disrupted.
