LAKE TAUPO, New Zealand(AP) Stephen Jones and Gethin Jenkins should both recover sufficiently from injuries to appear in Wales' second Rugby World Cup match against Samoa on Sunday.
Flyhalf Jones and prop Jenkins both missed their team's 17-16 opening defeat to defending champion South Africa because of calf injuries.
The Welsh Rugby Union said Monday that the players "are expected to return to full training this week, making them both available for selection.''
Former captain Ryan Jones is the only player among the 30-man squad who will likely be unavailable for the game in Hamilton.
The back-row forward aggravated a calf problem in training last week but should be fit for Wales' final Pool D game against Fiji.
