Scarlets full back Morgan Stoddart has been called into Wales' Invesco Perpetual Series Squad as a replacement for fellow Scarlet Mark Jones, who was ruled out of the campaign early this week with a knee injury.
Stoddart, will report for Wales squad training on Thursday, but will be back with the Scarlets for the LV Cup clash with Harlequins at the Stoop on Sunday 8th November, before rejoining Warren Gatland's national squad the following Tuesday as they prepare for the second game of the Series against Samoa.
"Morgan is an intelligent attacking player who will provide cover for us across the back three," said Wales assistant coach Rob Howley.
"He is a player we know very well and just as importantly he knows our squad environment very well and should be able to slot into things fairly quickly."
Stoddart last played for Wales in their victory over Canada during the Invesco Perpetual Series 2008 and won his other two international caps against South Africa, making his debut against the Springboks on Wales' summer tour in 2007.
Stoddart returned to Scarlets action for the first time last Friday night against Connacht in the Magners League, following a seven-month absence from a knee injury.
Scarlets Head Coach Nigel Davies said: "The best thing for Morgan now that he is back playing is to get as much top end, competitive game time as possible and to have an opportunity to train and play with the Wales will be a massive boost for him.
"We all know what he is capable of and the kind of quality he can bring and it's great to see him back to fitness."
