FORMER Monmouth School student Hallam Amos is in line for a surprise call up to Wales’ Commonwealth Games squad.
The 23-year-old, from Cross Ash, has not played for Wales since being sidelined with an ankle injury in the closing stages of the Dragons’ New Year’s Eve derby defeat to the Ospreys at Rodney Parade.
Amos was selected for Warren Gatland’s Six Nations squad after an impressive showing in all four autumn internationals, scoring tries against Australia and Georgia.
Amos has 15 caps to his name and played a total of 256 minutes in the autumn internationals, more than any other Wales player in the squad, but has not yet featured in this year’s Six Nations.
And Dragons coach Bernard Jackman confirmed this week that the Gwent region will release him to take up a place in the squad.
Dragons coach Jackman said: “Wales expressed an interest in Hallam and it’s something he wants to have a crack at.
“He wants to play for Wales at the Commonwealth Games and we are happy to support that.
“We want Wales to be as strong as possible and we just felt it was a good thing for Hallam to go and do.”
