Teenage sensation Louis Rees-Zammit is in Wales' Six Nations squad picked for the first time by new coach Wayne Pivac.

The 18-year-old Gloucester winger, who has been in phenomenal form for his club scoring nine times in 10 matches this season, could make his debut against the day after his 19th birthday early next month.

In the midst of a centre injury crisis, with Jonathan Davies, Scott Williams, Owen Watkin and Willis Halaholo all injured, Pivac has selected former England U20 Nick Tompkins.
