Charteris available to face Australia
Wales have announced they have come to an agreement with Perpignan to allow Luke Charteris to face Australia.
The final autumn international falls outside of the designated IRB Test window and, as a result, his club were not obligated to release him for the game, which takes place the Millennium Stadium on December 1.
Wales have managed to strike an agreement with Perpignan, who Charteris only joined this summer, which involves the second row missing Wales' game with Argentina on November 10 to feature in the Top 14 game against Biarritz.
The deal frees Charteris up to face Australia, however Wales' three other French-based players currently remain unavailable for that game.
Wales interim head coach, Rob Howley, said: "We are delighted to have come to an agreement with Perpignan which will allow Luke to be available to be considered for selection for the Wallabies game.
"This is a major step forward for us and shows that our trip out to France to talk face to face with the clubs has paid dividends.
"We have reached a compromise which allows Perpignan to have Luke available to them when they need him most, and see no reason why we can't build on this relationship in the future."
