NEWPORT Gwent Dragons wing Will Harries is in Wales' squad for Saturday's clash with South Africa, replacing the injured Shane Williams, and will tour New Zealand later this month.

Harries has not been selected in the match day 22 to face the Springboks with 18-year-old Tom Prydie due to win his second cap and Leigh Halfpenny on the other wing.

Coach Warren Gatland has opted not to select a recognised winger on the bench to face the world champions.

Wales assistant coach Rob Howley said Harries had impressed in training as a reserve player: "Will has been going extremely well in training and he is a real young talent, one of the uncapped players to be making the trip and he will hopefully learn a lot and continue to put pressure on the rest of the back three."

Rumours of centre James Hook delaying his shoulder injury to face the Boks are true with him linking up with his Six Nations partner Jamie Roberts.

Elsewhere, Deiniol Jones replaces the injured Luke Charteris at lock ahead of Alun Wyn Jones, Paul James is preferred to John Yapp as Gethin Jenkins' replacement at loosehead prop and Andy Powell returns to Wales duty on the bench after the shame of 'Buggygate'.

Wales: Lee Byrne; Leigh Halfpenny, James Hook, Jamie Roberts, Tom Prydie, Stephen Jones, Mike Phillips; Paul James, Matthew Rees, Adam Jones, Bradley Davies, Deiniol Jones, Jonathan Thomas, Sam Warburton, Ryan Jones (Capt) Replacements: Huw Bennett, John Yapp, Alun Wyn Jones, Andy Powell, Richie Rees, Dan Biggar, Andrew Bishop
