The Welsh Rugby Union announced that Scarlets forward Jake Ball, who started against France last month as a late replacement for Alun-Wyn Jones, will step in for Charteris, with Andrew Coombs moving onto the bench.
The late loss of Perpignan forward Charteris is a blow for Wales, given his line-out expertise, but Ball impressed greatly when he made his first international start in the 27-6 victory over France.
