Scott Quinnell has been ruled out of the Wales team to play Romania in their crucial 1995 Rugby World Cup ranking match in Bucharest tomorrow after failing a fitness test.

The 22-year-old Llanelli number eight has lost his battle to recover from a back injury and his former teammate, Emyr Lewis, will take his place in the back row.
