Jenkins or Lydiate could lead Wales – Gatland

Warren Gatland believes prop Gethin Jenkins or flanker Dan Lydiate are the main candidates to captain Wales against Australia in Cardiff on Saturday.

Interim head coach Rob Howley, deputising for British & Irish Lions coach Gatland, will on Thursday name a team which will not feature skipper Sam Warburton.

Warburton has been released back to Cardiff Blues as he continues his recovery from injury while another possible captain, Alun Wyn Jones, will be missing following the death of his father.
