Tommy Reffell Favourite To Replace Taulupe Faletau for Wales 

Tommy Reffell is favourite to fill the void left by Taulupe Faletau in the Wales team at the World Cup. 

Leicester Tigers back row Reffell is the leading candidate with Welsh bookmaker DragonBet to replace Faletau for the quarter-final clash against Argentina this weekend. 

Coach Warren Gatland is not short of options to step in for Falatau, who suffered a broken arm against Georgia that ended his tournament last Saturday. 

Aaron Wainwright is expected to be switched from blindside flanker as Faletau’s replacement at No.8 to face the Pumas. 

Reffell, Dan Lydiate, Taine Basham and Christ Tshiunza could all be drafted in when Gatland names his team on Thursday.  

But Dragonbet make Reffell their short-priced favourite to get selected alongside captain Jac Morgan  and Aaron Wainwright at 10/11. 

Lydiate and Tshiunza are joint second favourites to get the nod at 3/1. 

A back row combination of Basham, Reffell and Morgan can be backed at 7/1, the same price as a trio of Tshiunza, Reffell and Morgan. 

Latest odds: 

Morgan, Reffell, Wainwright – 10/11 

Lydiate, Morgan, Wainwright – 3/1 

Tshiunza, Morgan, Wainwright – 3/1 

Tshiunza, Reffell, Morgan – 7/1
