WALES wing George North has been ruled out of the side to face New Zealand in Cardiff on Saturday (KO 5.15pm) with a hip injury.

His place is taken by Scarlets' Liam Williams who wasn't among the initial matchday squad.

North's injury took place in training on Tuesday.

He will remain with the squad and it is hoped he will recover in time to face Australia on December 1 for Wales' final match of 2012.

HP to wing.....Williams to FB. Their natural positions. I alway get a bit nervous with HP under the high ball. What happens when the likes of Rougerie or the SH wingers come to town?

Keith..........all of his caps were on the wing but I personally think he's too small physically. I like the Stuart Watkins/ John Bevan type myself.
