Wales cancel team announcement as strike threatens England Six Nations clash

Wales have cancelled the planned announcement of their team to face England as the threat of a players strike continues to loom over the Six Nations clash.

Warren Gatland had been due to announce his matchday 23 for the fixture at 12pm on Tuesday, but will now no longer do so.

The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) and players are locked in negotiations over contracts for next season, with deals yet to be offered to out-of-contract players.

The Welsh national squad have said they will go on strike if the WRU fail to meet a number of demands by Wednesday evening, throwing a marquee encounter in Cardiff into significant doubt.
