Andrew Combs admits his surprise at being called up for Wales's Six Nations squad.

Andrew Coombs has admitted that he was "blown away" by the news that he has been named in the Wales squad for the Six Nations.

The 28-year-old Newport Gwent Dragons forward was one of five uncapped players named in the party, but he has revealed that it was "a massive shock".

"It was a massive shock. I was blown away when our coach Darren Edwards told me the good news," he told BBC Sport.

"I knew there was a lot of injuries and they'd be looking at other players to step in and fill the shoes, I didn't think it would be me.

"But things happen and happen for a reason so I can't wait to go."

Wales open their campaign against Ireland on February 2.
