& # 39; He is going back to his club this weekend and then we will get him back next week. & # 39;
Meanwhile, Liam Williams only returns after the second week of Six Nations of the ankle injury he suffered during the World Cup – meaning he is probably ready for the game in Ireland.
With him eliminated, Jonathan Davies injured the rest of the season and Owen Watkin is unlikely to make it to the Italy game, or Pivac said that George North is the leader for a start in the middle.
& # 39; George is clearly a man who can play the grand piano, we know that, and we are training him in the middle, & # 39; Pivac added.
& # 39; He shows good posture and a good appetite to make it burst, so that's nice.
& # 39; If it releases, it can be very, very exciting. He has played there before and these few club games have been invaluable to see him there. & # 39;
