Welsh fears as Jenkins limps out
January 30, 2000
Garin Jenkins gave Wales an injury scare ahead of the Lloyds TSB Six Nations
The Swansea hooker picked up a knock to his right ankle and was replaced in
It was another worry for Wales coach Graham Henry as he pondered his side for the Six Nations opener against France at the Millennium
The Welsh are already without Craig Quinnell who pulled out of the trial
With Quinnell out, Pontypridd's Ian Gough and Cardiff's Steve Moore played
With Scott Gibbs another injury victim, Henry had various options at centre
The Probables got something of a wake-up call when the Possibles scored within
But Taylor redressed the balance when he was sent over after a neat link
The strength of the Probables scrum told as they were awarded a penalty try,
But for the rest of the half the Probables showed their teeth with a second try for Taylor and two scores for full-back Shane Howarth.
The Probables led 35-14 at half-time but the scoreline was largely irrelevant
And it was the Possibles who settled better after the turn-round, scoring four unanswered tries through Richard Smith, Neil Boobyer, Andrew Gibbs and Gareth Wyatt.
In the earlier development match, the Reds beat the Greens 34-28.
