Frizell, who turned 22 years old today, made his debut for Wales against Ireland in 2011. He then went on to make two further appearances in that year’s Four Nations tournament but was injured for last year’s Tri-Series games against England and France.
“We were initially told that he was ruled out completely due to injury,” said Wales coach Iestyn Harris. “But our head physiotherapist Ben Stirling has been in contact with his club in Sydney and they are now saying that his injury is recovering a lot quicker than they expected.
“They will know by next week whether he will be fit or not and if it’s positive news then we’ll be delighted to have him over here playing for Wales once again.
“His inclusion would mean that we will have 15 players in our side who have played at the highest level this season which would be the most we’ve had in many years.”
