Howley explains Wales selections

Interim coach Robert Howley says the presence of Tavis Knoyle at Wales' training camp in Poland was a major factor in his decision to select the Scarlets player rather than France-based Mike Phillips at scrum-half to face Argentina

Howley has handed a first start to Ospreys tight-head prop Aaron Jarvis, who deputises for regional team-mate Adam Jones

Wales face Argentina in the opening game of the autumn series on Saturday, followed by Test matches against Samoa, New Zealand and Australia at the Millennium Stadium.
