Injured scrum-half Rhys Webb: 'Wales can do something special'

Scrum-half Rhys Webb insists that Wales can do "something special" after he was ruled out of the upcoming Rugby World Cup with a foot injury.

Injured Wales scrum-half Rhys Webb has said that the team "can go on and create something special" after he was ruled out of the upcoming Rugby World Cup.

Two of Wales's key players, Webb and full-back Leigh Halfpenny, both suffered serious injuries in the final World Cup warm-up against Italy on Saturday.

Webb was confirmed as out with a foot injury this morning and the duo have been replaced by Mike Phillips and Eli Walker.

"Really disappointed to be ruled out of the RWC," Webb wrote on Twitter. "After all the hard work I've put in over the summer words can't describe how I'm feeling.

"I really believe that Wales can go on and create something special. I appreciate all the messages.

"It's great to have so much support from all around the world but let's get behind the boys. See you in 2016."

Wales start their World Cup campaign against Uruguay in Cardiff on September 20 and also line up against tournament hosts England, Australia and Fiji in Pool A.
