Exeter Chiefs Women's youngster Meg Davies has today been called into the Welsh squad ahead of the upcoming Six Nations Championship.

The 19-year-old has been brought in by head coach Warren Abrahams after Bristol Bears scrum-half Keira Bevan was ruled out for the whole tournament after sustaining a leg injury in training.

Cardiff-born Davies moved to the Chiefs ahead of the current season from Gloucester-Hartpury and has so far featured three times for Susie Appleby's side in the Allianz Premier 15s.

Her call-up means she is the third Chief to be named in the Welsh squad, joining up with club-mates Abbie Fleming and Niamh Terry.

Bevan, meanwhile, joins Carys Phillips, Kayleigh Powell, Alisha Butchers, Lleucu George and Beth Lewis on the injured list.

Wales open their campaign against France on Saturday night in Pool B before hosting Ireland seven days later.

After the opening two matches, the condensed 2021 tournament concludes with a final round of games on April 24, which are determined by results over the first two rounds.
